Click above for high-res gallery of the Factory Five GTM

Factory Five is one of those companies that you may have heard of but probably don't know where. If you happen to correctly relate them to the car world, you might remember them as a kit car company, one of dozens of Cobra re-creators out there. Well, a few years back they decided to do something a little bit different. They created their own unique design rather than copying someone else's work. The result was the Factory Five GTM.

Some see Ford GT40, others see Corvette and still others think it's an Ascari, Nobel, Rossion or even a Carrera GT. While it may somewhat resemble some of those other great shapes, it is truly something unique. Well, sort of. Like the Anteros we just told you about, there's a bit of Corvette in the mix. It uses a bespoke chassis, but is powered by an LS7 V8. Weighing in at just 2,350 lbs. it has the power-to-weight ratio of a Rolex Grand-Am prototype. It can get to sixty from a standstill in 3 seconds and cover the quarter in 11 flat. We saw one in Vegas at SEMA and when people asked about it in the supercar gallery post, we decided it might need a little extra attention. Enjoy the gallery and if you decide you'd like one, you're in luck. Factory Five is offering $2,000 off the kits.

      It's funny, I was looking at their website earlier. It's a very compelling option. Maybe once I'm out of school... I've always wanted to build a car.

      That looks nicer than the other cars in the photo, by quite a lot.

      I also see a little MC12, and that's definitely not a bad thing. And the performance sounds pretty awesome. They should go racing with this.

        Exactly what I thought - there's something MC12-ish in the front..

        And that's a good thing. The MC12's classic lines are some of the best designs in the modern supercar world.

      That looks pretty awesome. I figured it was a Ford GT with a (good) bodykit. Shame it probably only comes in left hand drive.

      Chip Foose called, he said that the rims were WAY too small.

      This is to anyone who has posted:

      Do any of you own a GTM?

      Nice ride but are those Yaris air vents in the interior?

      This GTM is actually the second of the now fourth GTM that I have built. This car ended up selling to a guy in Malaysia. My third car was build for KONI's SEMA booth in 2010. This new one I just started will be at SEMA this fall. It is powered by a Magnuson supercharged LS3 with a dynamic rear wing.

      One of my favorite kit cars keeps getting better.
