1968-1974 GINETTA G15 specifications

1968-1974 GINETTA G15 specifications Classic and Performance Car

As a more obviously road-focused model it’s clear why the G15 became Ginetta’s best-selling model. Powered by the excellent Coventry Climax based Hillman Imp engine, mid-mounted in the lightweight glassfibre shell, weight distribution was near perfect and handling was predictably good as a result. The suspension set-up was a mixture of Triumph and Hillman and was used to great effect. A more powerful G15S was launched and pushed the top speed up to 115mph – but sadly the G15 was taken out of production in 1973.
