The Grinnall Scorpion IV which was revealed at the 2005 Autosport International is a lightweight sports car made by UK-based Grinnall Specialist Cars. The Scorpion IV is similar in appearance to the Scorpion III, but with an extra wheel and slightly larger dimensions.

The Scorpion IV comprises of a steel space frame chassis and a fibreglass body. Power for the Scorpion IV comes from a Audi sourced 1.8 litre turbocharged petrol engine running through a 6 speed gearbox. The standard engine produces 225bhp, although it can be tuned to provide over 300bhp.

The front suspension of the Scorpion IV is a development of the technology used in the Scoprpion III, double wishbones made from oval tubing with inboard coil springs over bespoke Harvey-Bailley dampers. At the rear, long, super-stiff longitudinal links give superb handling and camber control without compromising the vehicle's distinctive styling.
