Ginetta Unveils New G60 Sports Car Powered by a Mustang-Sourced V6


Last week Ginetta announced that it would soon unveil a new 310HP sports car with a carbon fibre body. Well, we have to admit the littleBritish car company has kept its promise by launching the G60, the first mid-engine model in its range since the G32 in 1989.
The only thing the new G60 shares with its predecessor is the engine layout. The G60 boasts carbonfibre tub and body based on that of the Farbio GTS, which itself is based on the 2002 Farboud GT.
Ginetta, which last March acquired Farbio, has redesigned the car with the focus being on reducing its weight. Apart from its carbonfibre construction, Ginetta’s new model has no steering assistance, servo-assisted brakes, ABS or electronic stability control systems. As a result, it tips the scales at just 1,100 kg (2,425 lbs) or 400 kg (881 pounds) less than the GTS.
The naturally-aspirated 3.7-liter V6 comes is sourced from the Ford Mustang and is rated at 310HP. Power is transferred to the rear wheels through a six-speed manual gearbox and a Quaife limited-slip differential, while the suspension uses wishbones on all four corners.
Although 310HP is nothing to brag about in today’s sports car arena, the low weight allows the G60 to achieve a sub-4.0 seconds 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) sprint time and a top speed in excees of 165mph (265 km/h).
Moreover, the G60 will be more exclusive than most rivals, since Ginetta plans on manufacturing just 50 units.
