Ginetta Cars is a British specialist builder of racing and sports cars based in Garforth, Leeds, West Yorkshire. Ginetta decided to re-enter the complete car business with the mid-engined G32 with a choice of 1.6- or 1.9-litre four-cylinder engine, available as a coupé or convertible and the G33 convertible with 3.9-litre Rover V8 capable of 145 mph and a 0-60 mph time of 5 seconds. In 1990 the G32 coupé cost £13,700, the convertible £14,600, and the G33 £17,800.
“Raw power, good looks, great sound. The G33's distinctive twin rear bulges echo the Jaguar C and D-type “- Autoexpress 1991
