SEMA 2012: Factory Five Racing GTM Supercar

I love the GTM Supercar from Massachusetts-based Factory Five Racing. I’ve written about it before when a beautiful blue one showed up at a local cruise-in here in Phoenix. At this year’s SEMA show, I spied this very sharp red and black GTM Supercar at the Factory Five Racing booth.As it turns out, the car belongs to Bob Bailin of Pennsylvania, a Factory Five customer. According to what I could find online, this car features a 505 horsepower LS7 engine from a Corvette Z06 and a Porsche transaxle. The car also features Corvette suspension parts.

Bob built the car himself in about a year and a half. He is a member of the Monticello Motor Club, a members-only racetrack in Monticello, New York. This car is ready to tear up the track with its roll cage, no-nonsense interior, and aerodynamic enhancements such as the front lip kit and spoiler.

We salute Mr. Bailin and his DIY racing ethic, as well as Factory Five Racing for their amazing cars and community of enthusiasts. This car is definitely capable of generating some high output!
