GTM Supercar

“The Fastest Car You Will Ever Build in Your Garage.” – Car & Driver Magazine

For more than 20 years we have been at the forefront of the component car industry with our famous Roadsters and Coupes. In fact today, if you see a Cobra Replica out on the road, it is most likely a Factory Five. While the satisfaction of that accomplishment is tremendous, we wanted to make our own original design.

The risks of designing our own supercar were huge. Automotive history has many examples of small companies whose reach exceeded their grasp. Companies like Tucker, Bricklin, DeLorean, Vector, and others had great ideas, but lacked the resources to fully execute. So it was with great care and planning that we designed the GTM over the process of five years.

We designed the GTM as a direct challenge to people like Ferrari dealers, who with manicured fingernails and straight faces, charge people a premium to be on a waiting list, to join an exclusive club of unfriendly people who rarely drive their cars. We designed the GTM out of real pride, patriotism, and conceit. We wanted to show the world what we were capable of and we wanted to build a car that would kick everyone else’s arse.
The GTM is our flagship supercar, and has come to symbolize our technological abilities. The car is drop-dead gorgeous and it runs with the very fastest supercars on the planet. Every drive in a GTM is accompanied by camera phones stuck out the window of other cars and thumbs up from other drivers. More than the rock star looks, this car is simply the most brutally fast machine you will ever build.


“Fitted with a 400 HP LS6 engine, it goes ballistic in a blink, rocketing 0-60 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!”
