It’s amazing that Ginetta is still alive and functioning, after all almost all British sportscar makers have bite the bust in this world of efficiency and global marketing. They just announced a new Ginetta GT Supercup for 2011, and released the first rendering of the new Ginetta G55 racer as the official car.

The 2011 G55 features a 3.7 370-hp litre Ford engine, Hewland gearbox, cool air induction kit, up-rated front and rear brakes, new exhaust system. This is a much better car technically than the 300-hp G50 that it replaces and also looks much better. Needless to say it also has better aerodynamics.

We can’t wait to see a road-going version of the G55.

Teams running the current Ginetta G50, which has won multiple GT4 championships worldwide, will be able to upgrade their existing car to the new G55 for £25,000 or take advantage of a new part-exchange system. The 2011 G50 will run at 300bhp with a 3.5 litre Ford engine, Hewland gearbox and cool air induction kit.

Entry fees for the new 2011 Ginetta GT Supercup will be:

* £9,750 + VAT for a G50

* £11,750 + VAT for the G55

Ginetta Boss, Tomlinson said of the new changes commented: “The G50 has dominated GT4 since its launch 2 years ago and proved itself as a real stepping stone into the GT4 arena. By introducing the G55 into the new Ginetta GT Supercup, I want to broaden Ginetta’s offering to all drivers expanding our career ladder even further and highlight a real route into GT3 – whilst still providing an affordable way to enjoy top level racing.”
