Ginetta, a Leeds-based company established in 1958, will soon enter the supercar arena with an as-yet unnamed vehicle.

Although the company has built kit cars and fully-built road-going vehicles in the past, over the last few years it has concentrated on racing prototypes, and its own one-make racing series.

According to the firm, its first modern supercar will have a carbon-fibre monocoque and body, and will be powered by a race-derived V8 engine cranking out around 450kW of power.

Drive will be sent to the rear wheels via a sequential transmission. The vehicle will also feature a "race-derived aerodynamic package", and other racing technologies.

In the teaser image (above) we can see an aggressive nose design, a number of vents on the bonnet, and a large rear wing.

No word yet on how much the car will cost, or when it will become available.

Ginetta says the vehicle will "not [be] another supercar from a car company: this is a supercar from a top-tier motorsport manufacturer".
