When the G4 Series 4 needed an 'update', the G27 emerged. After the sale of the company the G27 became the major 'earner', but the car was not cost-effective to produce. The cars were fitted with many engines including the 16v Vauxhall/Opel and Rover V8.
A single-make race series (the Ginetta G27 Championship) helped improve market awareness, and sales improved to a point, but a conditional limit of production numbers by the RAC MSA meant no more cars could be made.
The last evolution of the G27, the G27R was the basis for the development of the G20 model of the late '90s.
