British Ginetta Supercar with 600 hp Costs Over 500k

This is the Ginetta, a new British supercar that has a lot of power, a lot of personality, and a lot of question marks.

For starters, what will Ginetta call it? We don’t know yet as an official name for this angry-looking supercar from England hasn’t been confirmed yet. We also don’t know if it will ever make it to North America, although we’re quite sure the answer is no.

That’s because Ginetta only plans to make 20 units of its new bomb on wheels, and more than half (60 percent) of the allocation is already sold. Really? Wow.

Looking like an odd mix between a Dodge Viper, a Nissan GT-R, a TVR Tuscan and an F1 car, the Ginetta is packing some serious firepower.

The company built a 6.0-liter V8 engine with 600 horsepower sent to the rear wheels through a six-speed sequential gearbox. Weight distribution is said to be 51 to the rear, 49 to the front and the massive rear wing can push over 800 pounds of downforce onto the rear wheels.

Pricing is set at 400,000 pounds, or $532,000 in the United States. Not that it matters, but that’s over $600,000 here.

Inside the Ginetta, we find a pure racing cockpit which is suitable given the brand’s history. The brand has been building race and road cars by hand for over 60 years out of a 75,000 sq. ft. factory in Leeds.
