This description is taken from the description page in GT5. It is transcluded from here.
In 1957, the Walklett brothers of England stuck a tubular frame of their own design to a Ford engine and transmission, and then marketed their creation as a complete car and in kit form. This was the beginning of the Ginetta, and the car represented here was called the G2. The G2 was an immediate hit, and the company soon developed many enthusiastic fans as a first-rate specialty sports-car maker.
The basic principle behind the G4, released in 1961, was simple: attach an FRP (Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic) body to a tubular frame and install an engine up front. The engine was Ford's 1.0-liter OHV, with a 1.3-liter offered as an option. The suspension system consisted of double-wishbones in front and a rigid axle with trailing arms at rear.
The car's extremely light curb weight, around 400 kg, gave it go-kart like reflexes, making it one of the most thrilling things to drive on four wheels...despite the engine's low output. The G4 received high praise from amateur racers and became a grand success. Ginetta ended up selling more than 500 G4s in 1969, a rarity for a limited-production sports car. Eventually, the Walklett brothers released their interest in the company and the G4 disappeared. But in the late 1980s, production of a new G4 began again. The revived G4 embraced the values of the original car and struck a chord with enthusiasts all over again.
