Ginetta set to debut new G55 on January 13

Article by Christian A., on December 1, 2010

At Birmingham’s Autosport International in January, Ginetta will unveil the new G55, its fastest, most-powerful GT race car to date. The G55 offers GT3-levels of performance and is considered to be a sister car to the GT4-spec G50.

These two vehicles will actually go up against each other in 2011 in the new Ginetta GT Supercup, a support race series to the revived BTCC.

The G55, which is based on the G50, features a 370bhp 3.7-litre Ford engine, a Hewland gearbox, a cool air induction kit, up-rated front and rear brakes, and a new exhaust system. Its aerodynamics was improved by featuring more muscular bodywork, offering higher efficiency.

The Ginetta G55 is priced at £75,000. Those who own a G50 can choose to upgrade their cars for £25,000 or sign up for the part-exchange program. Owners may opt to get the 2011 Ginetta GT Supercup, which is priced at £9750 plus VAT for a G50 and at £11,750 plus VAT for a G55.

Ginetta established this in order to offer a class structure that will bring the series in line with most other GT championships throughout the globe.

According to Ginetta boss Lawrence Tomlinson, the G55 highlighted “a real route into GT3 to all drivers” while giving consumers the chance to enjoy top-level racing without busting their budget.
