The new model features a carbon fiber monocoque chassis with a carbon crash box and an FIA-approved steel roll cage. Under the carbon panels will sit a Chevy LS3 6.3-liter V8 engine pushing no less than 580 horsepower to the rear wheels via a six-speed sequential transaxle gearbox provided by Xtrac.

At the exterior, an aerodynamic package will help the vehicle achieve the quickest lap times for this class of car.

This model is also configurable to suit a wide range of driver experiences and is eligible for highly competitive car racing championships around the world. Although its first public appearance is set for January 2016, the Ginetta prototype has been already accepted in the VdeV series in France and other sports car championships.

According to Lawrence Tomlinson, the Europe’s pre-season motorsport show is the ideal place to launch their prototype and whoever wants to have a go in a Ginetta will be able to do so. In the Ginetta Thrill Rides, visitors will be in the passenger seat of a G40 Club Car while one of the company’s racing drivers will pilot the car around the custom built track.

Other important technical specs will be given during a press conference on January 14, 2016, but with 580 horsepower on a lightweight car, the future looks bright for the British carmaker.

Ian France, Show Director at Autosport International, says that it is delighted to host this very significant UK debut of the Ginetta G57.

During its 25-year history, the show has hosted many important launches and continues to be the best place for companies in the motorsport and high performing engineering sectors to reveal their latest technologies.
