Feedback on the G25 indicated that potential owners were more interested in a type approved turn key vehicle and so Ginetta revised the G25 prototype into the type approved G32.
In 1989 the G32 went into production with a mid mounted motor, initially either a 1.6 litre / 97 cui motor taken from the larger Ford Escort XR3i or a 1.9 litre / 115 cui version enlarged by Specialised Engines.
The 1990 110hp model, seen here with the Ginetta Owners Club at Silverstone Classic, was quoted by the factory as being capable of reaching 60 mph from rest in 8.2 seconds and with a top speed of 120mph.
Later versions of the G32 included a Turbo option and some have been retro fitted with more modern Ford Zetek motors.
It is believed around 100 G32 Coupés were built with a further 20 convertibles. Note the tail lights came from the Ford Sierra parts bin.
