Factory Five is noted for being at the forefront of the component car industry for the past 20 years. They are best known for their wonderful Cobra replicas; and while gaining a great deal of satisfaction from their accomplishments, they wanted to build a machine of their own design. They acknowledged the risks of such an endeavor and that previous small companies had failed in such pursuits. It was with great care, planning and attention to detail that the GTM?was designed and realized over the process of five years.
The GTM is the “flagship supercar” of Factory Five, and symbolizes the technological abilities of the company. Factory Five proudly states that “the car is drop-dead gorgeous and it runs with the very fastest supercars on the planet.”
Car & Driver magazine called this model “the fastest car you will ever build in your garage.” This particular silver with black interior GTM has been built by two experienced professional mechanical engineers that applied their talents utilizing “all new GM parts.” The mid-engine platform is driven by a Corvette LS6 V-8 engine that produces around 400-hp and is mated to a six-speed manual transmission. The car has eye-catching styling that truly sets it apart whether parked or at speed. Among the equipment are carbon fiber interior accents, Auto Meter Pro-Comp instruments, air conditioning, radio, alloy wheels, cruise control, power windows and power four-wheel disc brakes.
Vette Magazine was impressed enough to write: “Fitted with a 400-hp LS6 engine, it goes ballistic in a blink, rocketing 0- to 60-mph in 3.2 seconds… Corvette brakes bring the GTM?to a clenching halt in only 111 feet from 60-mph. Street tires deliver 1.05-Gs on the skid pad!”
The GTM platform was tested and proven at the Bob Bondurant School of High Performance Driving. The Factory Five GTM is supplemented by all of the appropriate build manuals, Corvette shop manuals, all records and all invoices. The stated 3,500 miles logged onto the odometer are actual and help illustrate the care this uncommon Factory Five supercar has received. 2006 Factory Five GTM
