British sports car manufacturer Ginetta is poised to unveil another, more hardcore road car.

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 spokesman declined to give any further details on the car.
