Supercar from Ginetta with a maximum speed of 321 km/h will show in Geneva

The novelty will receive a 600-horsepower engine, so it can accelerate to a speed of 321 km / h. Supercar weighs only 1150 kilograms in the dry state (without any liquids).

Perhaps we are moving towards the automotive future, in which the main role is played by fully electric vehicles, but this does not mean that an old-fashioned sports car with a traditional internal combustion engine can be written off.

At the heart of the as-yet-untitled creation is a compact and lightweight 6.0-liter V8 engine, developing a maximum of 600 hp power and 705 Nm of torque.

The 8-cylinder powerplant works in conjunction with a sequential 6-speed gearbox, developed by the British company Ginetta, and a differential connected to the engine via a carbon fiber tail shaft.

Carbon fiber has also been used for body panels and chassis to reduce the overall weight to an impressively low 1,150 kg, despite the fact that this model is the largest Ginetta road car to date. The company was founded back in 1958. A mid-engine supercar has a body with “advanced” aerodynamic characteristics and can generate 376 kg of downforce at a speed of 161 km / h. I note that these are almost the same indicators that the Ginetta LMP3 racing car can boast of. Interestingly, the luggage compartment for this type of car is huge – 675 liters.

  Ginetta plans to start production of its new supercar by the end of the year and start shipping in January 2020.

Not so long ago, we wrote that the revived brand Hispano Suiza presented a powerful supercar.
