The 2020 Ginetta Akula Is Your New 200-MPH British Supercar Dream
The 2019 Geneva Motor Show certainly has no shortage of ultra-fast, ultra-expensive machinery on display, but British-based boutique automaker Ginetta hopes to rise to the top with the public debut of the 2020 Akula supercar. Mating Le Mans-derived go-fast equipment, low-weight carbon-intensive construction, and a legit street-worthy cabin, the Akula looks tempting. But can it steal the spotlight at an event popping at the seams with excessive horsepower?
Ginetta’s All-New Lightweight Supercar Heads to Geneva With More Than 600 Horsepower
Automakers usually withhold technical information or refrain from showing an all-new model before a motor show, choosing to endlessly tease it and avoid talking about its details. Not so with U.K. sports car-manufacturer Ginetta, as it’s revealed every single detail of its new supercar, including the way it looks and all its performance specs. The only thing we don’t know about it is what it’s going to be called.
If you’ve ever heard of Ginetta Cars and they’re flagship supercar, the F400, then you need to pat yourself on the back for actually knowing the story behind this British supercar.
The name ’F400’ actually wasn’t the car’s first name. Matter of fact, Ginetta actually didn’t build the car, either. That distinction belongs to Farboud, which conceived, designed, and developed the car back in 2002 as the GTS. But for one reason or another, the Farboud GTS project never got off the ground and in March of 2010, the rights to the brand and the car were officially sold to Ginetta.
With a new supercar in tow, all Ginetta had to do was re-badge the GTS to the F400 and thus, their newest supercar was born.
For all of its backstory, the F400 still remains a largely unnoticed supercar. But in the year that has passed since Ginetta acquired Farboud and the GTS, the only way for the F400 to go is up.
