British manufacturer poised to unveil second road car of the year

Earlier this year the West Yorkshire firm revealed the £29,950 Ginetta G40 (pictured). However, it has now announced that it will unveil a new car imminently.

A short statement issued by Ginetta said it will reveal: 'A £68,000, full carbonfibre bodied, 3.7-litre sports car, weighing less than 1100kg and delivering 310bhp at the wheels with a top speed of 165mph and a 0-60mph time in around 4 seconds.'

A spokesman declined to give any further details on the car.
