We’ve come to know Ginetta as a company that has made a name for itself in the industry for producing track-focused race cars and kit cars like the Ginetta F400 and the Ginetta G40. Apparently, the British automaker has set its sights on building a new sports car, one that the company is expecting to sell to a more mainstream market.

No word yet on what the name of the future sports car is going to be, but Ginetta has nonetheless released a teaser photo, as well as performance details of the car, giving us an indication of what to expect when it officially breaks cover.

According to Ginetta, the future sports car will make extensive use of carbon fiber to keep its overall weight at just under 2,425 lbs. In addition, Ginetta is putting in a more-than-respectable 3.7-liter engine that delivers 310 horsepower while hitting a 0-60 mph time of just under four seconds and an overall top speed of 165 mph.

Seems a little weird that we already have an expected price tag for the car - £70,000 ($110,000) - yet we still don’t know what it’s going to be called. In any case, expect an announcement from Ginetta in the coming weeks about their new road-ready sports car.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

That’s not very impressive I guess.. But I hope it’s worth waiting for, therefore car enthusiasts wouldn’t be disappointed..
