This is the car that Ginetta will present in Geneva: 1100 kg and 600 HP
Talking about Ginetta is talking about an English firm that it is more than a manufacturer of cars to use . The British brand has a championship that serves as a shuttle to many pilots for higher categories within the different touring competitions. Besides this, they also produce cars, and this year they will take their last creation to the Geneva Motor Show.
In the absence of a name for their new model, the truth is that the figures of the new Ginetta model speak for themselves. Monocoque carbon fiber, 1,150 kilograms and an atmospheric V8 capable of producing 600 horses and 700 Nm of torque are numbers that seduce any lover of the engine. Just this is what they will try in the Swiss city.
WEC experience applied to street cars
Only 20 units will be manufactured , of which 12 have already been sold, and will be marketed in 2020. Technically, this new Ginetta is a racing car approved for the street, since its chassis is made entirely of carbon fiber and will have a great aerodynamic work, capable of producing 376 kilograms of downforce when driving at only 160 km/h thanks to its rear spoiler and the diffuser housed in the lower part of the rear.
Turning to the important, this new Ginetta mounts a 6-liter atmospheric V8 located in the front-center , that is, just behind the front axle. This propeller is capable of delivering 600 hp and 700 Nm of torque, and is coupled to a six-speed sequential gearbox. As expected, all the force produced goes exclusively to the rear wheels.
Ginetta has used all the experience gathered from the World Endurance Championship to make its new model have carbocerámicos brakes, active suspension of type pushrod, hydraulic steering wheel and a chassis approved by the FIA. In addition to light alloy wheels. Without a doubt, to buy one of these and not to enter a circuit would be a sacrilege.
Entering inside the cabin, it is not as expected. Obviously has the constraints of a racing vehicle, but inside there are two Alcantara seats, aluminum panels and a steering wheel produced in carbon fiber, to reduce the total weight to the maximum. On the other hand, also has security features such as traction control, rear camera, brightness sensor , parking sensors, wireless charger for mobile and ABS.
