Ginetta will reveal its fastest, most-powerful GT race car yet with the launch of this new G55 at the Autosport International in January.
Pictured here in these official renderings, the G55 will offer GT3-levels of performance and will be a sister car to the successful GT4-spec G50. Both will compete alongside each other in 2011 in the new Ginetta GT Supercup, a support race series to the revitalised BTCC.
Based on the G50, G55’s boasts over that car include a 370bhp 3.7-litre Ford engine, a Hewland gearbox, a cool air induction kit, up-rated front and rear brakes, a new exhaust system and more muscular bodywork offering improved aerodynamic efficiency.
The Ginetta G55 will cost £75,000, while G50 owners can upgrade their cars for £25,000 or take advantage of the British sports car maker’s part-exchange programme.
The 2011 Ginetta GT Supercup, that costs £9750 plus VAT for a G50 and £11,750 plus VAT for a G55, has been set up to offer a class structure that will bring the series in line with most other GT championships across the world.
