2012 Ginetta G60

Well, that was fast. Just a couple of days after releasing a teaser image for their new flagship sports car, Ginetta has gone balls to the wall with a full list of details on their G60. The new Ginetta G60 will be limited to only 50 units and will be priced at £68,000 or about $105,000 at the current exchange rates.

Being the first model produced since Ginetta took over Farbio Sports, the G60 benefits from this union with a heavily reworked version of the carbon fiber-tubbed Farbio GTS. According to the official press release, Ginetta states that the G60’s tub is now stiffer and easier to manufacture. Other additions to the Ginetta process are arelaigned driver position, stripped out weight, and new body panels.

The Ginetta G60 is powered by a Ford Mustang 3.7-liter V6 engine that delivers a total of 310 HP. This power will sprint the car from 0 to 60 mph in just 4 seconds and up to a top speed of 165 mph.

Exterior and Interior

Ginetta G60

The new Ginetta G60 sports car features a simple, driver-focused design language, with unassisted steering, no anti-lock brakes, no electronic driving aids, and servo-less brakes. This helps to reduce the car’s total weight to only 2425 lbs, about 881 lbs lighter than the Farbio GTS.

Engine

Ginetta G60

The new Ginetta G60 is powered by a naturally aspirated Ford Mustang 3.7 liter V6 engine with an output of 310 HP. The engine is mated to a six-speed Ford gearbox and sends its power to the rear wheels via a Quaife limited slip differential. This setup is enough to sprint the car from 0 to 60 mph in less than 4 seconds and up to a top speed of 165 mph.

Prices

The Ginetta G60 will be limited to only 50 units, each priced at £68,000 or about $105,000 at the current exchange rates.

Competition

Ginetta G60
Porsche Cayman

With 310 HP and a top speed of 165 mph, the Ginetta G60 seems to be the perfect competitor for models like the Porsche Cayman S . The Cayman S is powered by a 3.4 liter six-cylinder engine that delivers a total of 320 HP. It sprints from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.8 seconds, while top speed goes up to 171 mph.

The big catalyst for Porsche sales as opposed to Ginetta sales is the price. The G60 starts off at $105,000, but anyone can get a Cayman S starting at $62,100.

I wonder if when will really be the debut and market production of this one? I was hoping to see this one soon. smiley Anyway, they are right that it is already striking on its body paint.

I just only love and impressed with its front headlights and body paint but I’m not so fond with its platform and other detailing and if I’m not mistaken it is a sports car right? Well, I think the engine of it, is a big disappointment on this one.

This is impressive! It’s color combination of red and black is great! It got the sporty looks that a race car must possess.. It has a great body design..

Nice staring headlights, a very alive and cool concepts. Its red shiny scheme turned into a more attractive sports car. And to compare to the Porsche Cayman they might have similarities but this one goes into more value things.

It really looks so great and fabulous on that platform and styling. It is too pricey, but I think it’s worth the money spent for. Furthermore, I think I don’t agree with them that it had a poor engine. Why don’t we just give it a chance? smiley

You all forget the full carbon bodywork,the weight advantage, the no electronic driver aids makes this car a real fun toy, nothing to compare to a mass product like a cayman! The 316HP is the basis for extensive tuning- on hands at Ginetta for those who can handle more power ! This stays exclusive with no more than 50 cars per year and still it´s cheap compared with what the big brands ask for full carbon sportscars ! I think it´s a great car and a real good deal !

Well, I have to agree with them that it only had a poor engine for a sports car, but surely it had an impressive appearance. It had so much angst on its design, but I’m quite wondering if it had an impressive interior either.

IMO, too much cost, not enough value. I’d rather buy the ZR1 or GTR.

I’m impressed with the platform of this Ginetta G60 but is it with a matte color? Anyway, I noticed that it is too pricey but it had a poor engine. V6 engine that can deliver only 310 horsepower is I think can’t give a better performance of this sports car.
