The G8 monocoque consisted of a steel frame made of 16 and 18 gauge tubing sandwiched between two layers of fibreglass. The steel frame then acted as an attachment point for the suspension, engine and gearbox. Steel sub-frames are added front and rear for attaching auxiliary components. Front suspension was by lower wishbones with rockers operating the inboard springs and dampers. Modified Triumph Herald uprights were used with an anti-roll bar inside the bodywork. Rear suspension employed reversed lower wishbones, a top link and twin radius rods with outboard springs and dampers, no rear anti roll bar was fitted initially. Rear uprights were Ginetta made magnesium units and the wheels (also of Ginetta make) were 13 inch. The engine was a Holbay-Ford with a 4-speed Hewland gearbox.
Three cars were built and Chris Meek showed the car had some promise but the problems of aligning the spaceframe accurately within the fibreglass tub and the sheer cost meant that Ginetta gave up on the project.
