It may look similar to any GBS Zero that has come before, but the new Gen 2 version of the car features updates that are counted in the hundreds. We got behind the wheel and under the skin of the latest demonstrator.
Was the Hillman Imp a car that had the right ingredients in the wrong package? Its lightweight and willing Coventry Climax engine is much better suited to a two-seater sports car. We pit the Ginetta G15, Davrian and Clan Crusader against each other.
