Ginetta news - Gin’ fizz - 2010

Read more on:

Stop press!
Impossibly obscure British sports car manufacturer gets bought by another
almost as obscure British sports car manufacturer. Yes, that Farboud thingummy
that became a Farbio GTS or something (did it? Um, we think so) has now been
bought by Ginetta. Yes, you know, Ginetta. Yes, of course they’re still going.
Well, they were when we wrote this.

The
flagship 410bhp supercharged Farbio GTS is now going to be rebadged as the
Ginetta F400, and still be made at Farbio’s base in Bath, while Ginetta carries on
making its own G40 and G50 cars in Leeds. Which all sounds a bit mental, but
who are we to argue?

When it
goes on sale as an all-carbon, no-frills 911-rival of sorts, it’s expected to
cost around £90,000. Good luck chaps.
