Vehicle Description

This 1998 Factory Five GTM is a special treat. These are mid-engine V8 sports cars that can take down some big competition on the street or track. But you can't just walk into a showroom and drive one out. Just like the other FF creations, you have to add time, money, and effort to build one. Except this time, if you're quick enough, this LS2, six-speed GTM that's up for grabs lets you skip ahead to fun immediately.


Factory Five are the masters at building the pieces for some serious sports cars. That's why they are arguably the top name in track-worthy Shelby Cobra replicas. So when it came time for them to wrap that expertise into their own package, they really had some fun. Factory Five took some of the best design elements from contemporary supercars and created an attractively unique design. It's hard not to make comparisons to a Ford GT in the front, a Saleen S7 silhouette, and a rear reminiscent of the Mosler MT900 - that's some pretty fast company! And because each is individually assembled, it also opens the world up to individual paint themes. This one is particularly thoughtful. The white is a vibrant base, and the black center section not only makes for a great two-tone contrast, but it also coordinates with some of the sportiest pieces. This includes the large chin spoiler, deep channels for the brake cooling ducts, rear diffuser, and the carbon fiber adjustable rear wing. And pretty much everywhere there's black, there's also a touch of red for a truly bold and unique package. It's even on the expensive black Avant Garde wheels.


The interior does a great job creating a hardcore performance car that's also provides you with desirable everyday features. It starts with Braum racing seats that completely envelope you and your passenger. They are finished in a cool black and red to coordinate with the exterior. The high central tunnel is at the exact right height for to rest your arm while you right hand is firmly planted on the stick shift. Your left hand takes command of the removable Momo sports steering wheel. Beyond that is a complete set of gauges, including a large AutoGage tach mounted high on the dash. While all this seems like everything you want in a track car, there's also features like the air conditioning (needs servicing to blow cold) and power windows that makes this one convenient to drive well beyond the racetrack.


Factory Five developed the GTM utilizing some the best components around. It starts with a mid-mounted fuel-injected LS2 Chevy V8. These were already terrific powerhouses for competition-worthy speed, and this one has been further enhanced with "243" casting number LS6 aluminum heads, Lunanti camshaft and springs, Cloyes double roller timing set, Edelbrock waterpump, KOOKS custom made stainless headers, a Spectre cold air intake, and a custom wrapped exhaust. This is mated to a Getrag six-speed transaxle, which the builder claims came out of a turbocharged Porsche 996. The total package gives a good weight balance to Factory Five's custom chassis. After all, the entire car is supposed to weigh about 2,200 lbs so the power-to-weight ratio of this car is crazy! The suspension is borrowed from a C5 Corvette with some new additions such as Koni shocks. Keeping you firmly planted are four-wheel disc brakes attached to Continental ExtremeContact ZR tires. But what this car understands better than most others you'll look at is aerodynamics. Air channeled through the hood, smooth panels under the car, and both the diffuser and rear wing on the back are all about manipulating the air so that you get a supercar level of grip even at triple-digit speeds.


Big power, light weight, proven engineering, and an awesome exotic style - that's why you get with a Factory Five GTM. Rarely do you find one already assembled and ready to go. But if you want to start having fun tomorrow, you need to call today!
