The G33 certainly is a stunningly beautiful car. I wonder how many of the ~100 built came to North America. (?)

I presume you saw the article I just published about
Craig Chima's gorgeous Ginetta G4 race car?

If I couldn't find a G33, I wouldn't mind having a G4;)

Yes...seeing your post about the G4 reminded me of the G33.

I have never seen a single G33 in the USA, and I think they are all RHD. They are 1993 model year, so illegal to import??

There may be some Ginetta "dealers" in the USA that sell Miata based conversions.

I see your point. Is that an over-priced TR 7 ? Almost as pretty as a 914. Pleasant Motoring, roverman-lol

You're right, TVR wedges can be brawny, purposeful looking machines,
THIS is the most beautiful RV8 car ever:

The G33 pales by comparison to the G4, one of the prettiest cars of all time.

SLOW - the above pic is my Mate James in his old Griff with the 5.5 tweeked lump (370bhp and 420ft/lbs).

He is the Dounut King. He can spin one of those this in it own length so fast it makes your brain hurt!

[www.blip.tv] that is him driving my Chim (shouty bloke) and him in the dark spinning the above before being told to leave!

I do like G33's but my fave Brawny V8 Brit is this:-

Randal and clan,of course opinions are welcome here, but have you gazed upon the exhilerating lines of the of the mid RV8 powered, prototype, 2 place sports coupe ? Truly a thing of beauty. Too bad it was killed for being over competitive with the Jags, of same time period. Cheers, roverman.

Very reminiscent of the 60ís Cheetah, which was a Chevy powered Cobra fighter.

Did anyone-ever tout the Cheetah as best looking ? I think not. They were the automotive version of a mongoose on a binge for Cobras, and they did get their fill ? Cheers, roverman.
