To get straight to the point, the car will be powered by an 1800CC Zetec engine and will weigh around 850 kilos.
Here are the main features of the car, as provided by the parent company in a press release:
- Safety cage 50 times stronger than minimum 2009 FIA homologation regulations
- Front and rear crash zones
- Updated side impact bars
- Increased occupant safety and visibility
- Adjustable interfaces to maximise comfort
- Comfortable dual occupancy
Ginetta says the car will officially become available in January 2010 and the parent company will limit the production to twenty six units. Each of these units will come with a price tag of 24,950 british pounds (approximately 28,300 euros).
"The G40 will be the most versatile racing car on the market… not only will it be race worthy at a variety of levels, perhaps even GT4, but will also be enjoyable to drive on a recreational level too. I have been staggered at the level of interest already shown in the car and there is simply no better place to debut the G40 than on next year’s BTCC package. With the addition of the G40 to the Ginetta range, our motorsport career ladder remains unrivalled anywhere in the motorsport industry," Ginetta Chairman Lawrence Tomlinson said in a statement.
