The Ginetta G55 is essentially an evolution of the successful G50 coupe, which has for several years supported the BTCC with a one-make series, as well as competing in GT4 endurance racing around the world.
The plan is to introduce the new G55 into racing alongside the G50, to create the Ginetta GT Supercup, a move that emulates the class structure in other worldwide GT championships such as the Le Mans Series, ALMS and British GT.
If you want a G55 built from scratch, it will set you back £75,000, while existing G50 owners and racers can upgrade to the new car for £25k.
"The G50 has dominated GT4 since its launch two years ago and proved itself as a real stepping stone into the GT4 arena," says Ginetta boss Lawrence Tomlinson. "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."
