Factory Five GTM Supercar: An American Original

Most car people know of Massachusetts-based Factory Five Racing as the pre-eminent maker of AC Cobra kit cars. However, Factory Five also offers a completely original kit of their own design called the GTM Supercar.

I was fortunate enough to come across a beautiful dark blue GTM at the Scottsdale Pavilions car show a few weeks ago.

For just under $20,000 dollars, you can purchase a kit from Factory Five that includes almost everything you will need to build your own supercar! The kit comes with the chassis, body panels, and other components you will need to assemble your street-legal race car. All you do is supply the engine, transmission, a few suspension components from a C5 Corvette.

Factory Five estimates that it takes approximately 600 hours to assemble a GTM and an investment of between $30,000 to $50,000 total. That’s not bad when you consider what you get: a mid-engined, rear-drive race car that can do 0-60mph in 3.0 seconds flat!

While I didn’t get a chance to talk to the owner of this very unique car, I did get some great shots of it. Hope you enjoy them!
