Ginetta has confirmed that it will be making a return with a bang, and it plans on doing so with the introduction of an all-new supercar. Details are scarce for the time being, but highlights include a carbon-fibre tub chassis and a full carbon-fibre body.

From the teaser image above, the new supercar appears to feature a long nose not unlike the Dodge Viper, under which rests a race-derived naturally-aspirated V8 engine that’s tuned to deliver in excess of 600 horsepower. The engine is designed and manufactured in-house at the firm’s state-of-the-art factory in West Yorkshire, England.

For transmission, the automaker said it will be a sequential unit, which is typically used for performance-bred vehicles. Combined with the fact that it will boast race-derived aerodynamics, the new Ginetta supercar looks set to take on modern exotics, and it will likely be available as a rear-wheel drive. Additional details of the supercar will be announced in due course.

Ginetta chairman Lawrence Tomlinson, who acquired the company in 2005 from the four Walklett brothers-cum-founders, said: “we’ve come a long way in 60 years but we still believe Ginetta has great untapped potential. In the 1960s our G10 was a giant killer on and off the track, regularly beating Jaguar E-Types. Sixty years on, we’re again applying knowledge and technology from our racing programmes to build an uncompromised yet utterly capable road-going supercar.”

Ginetta is not a new brand, having boast an illustrious history that includes the manufacturing of lightweight- high-powered road cars to production based race cars such as the G55 GT4 (producing almost 400 to date, more than any other global manufacturer) and competition cars for the highest level of prototype racing.

The upcoming supercar is said to embody the same principles of race technology and precision engineering to create a true driver’s car. “This is not another supercar from a car company: this is a supercar from a top-tier motorsport manufacturer,” the firm said in a press statement.
