Ginetta G4

Few sports cars that emerged from the 1950s specials boom have had the lasting appeal of the achingly pretty road-legal racer from Essex By Richard Heseltine / Photography by Howard Simmons What it lacked in accuracy it more than made up for in repeat usage: “All roads lead to Witham,” declared Ginetta’s promotional spiel for year after year.
