GINETTA INTRODUCTION In the last six years we have taken an historic British marque from its nostalgic roots in the 60’s - 70’s and turned it into what is today a formidable player on the World Motorsport scene. With over a decade of successful racing all over the world – winning Le Mans GT2 class in 2006 – and a solid background in engineering, I like to ‘do things right’. I believe few people are better placed to fully understand the purist love of driving and so I set the bar very high for Ginetta. All Ginetta models are designed, engineered and developed in-house. Over the last 5 years, the company has developed a range of award winning race cars including the G40, G50 and G55 models. Lawrence Tomlinson - LNT Group Chairman

The Ginetta G50 race car was originally launched in 2008 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Ginetta. The concept behind the car was simple, produce a good value, multiplatform GT racer. The G50 has been a winner in every sense hosting one-make national championships in the UK, Italy, and Australia. The G50 has become one of the most successful GT4 cars ever produced winning championships in every year of its competition. The G50 is Ginetta Car’s largest seller, racing in almost every continent of the world. The performance and reliability of the car has been proven in some of the most gruelling races in the world including the VLN Nordschleife 24hr with tremendous success.

2012 sees Ginetta change the power plant to use their latest 3.7 V6 engine. Capable of producing 370bhp combining this power and chassis performance the G50 is a serious title contender. Named as Autosport Race Car of the year 2008 and the 2009 European GT4 Championship car. The Ginetta G50 GT4 car is eligible for all GT4 worldwide events, Spa 24hrs, Blancpain Endurance Series, VdeV, VLN, Britcar, GT Cup and many more.
