For Sale: 2006 Factory Five GTM in Lithia Springs, Georgia

Vehicle Description

This 2006 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 for this time, if you're quick enough, this LS6-powered, five-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! The Galaxy Grey was borrowed from Mazda, and it lives up to its name with a metallic element that radiates in the light like it assembled millions of little stars. In fact, since there's only about 650 miles on the full build, the finish, fit, panels, and glass all are quite nice. There's a touch of darkness on the car, and that seems to point to the most aerodynamic pieces, like the smooth headlight covers, hood extractors, rear diffuser, and the rear panel with those awesome-looking header-fed dual exhaust tips. The Aerolarri forged wheels have a fan-style look that's like they want to move the wind as much as the body, and they have a thoughtful tone that adds flair while still harmonizing with the metallic gray paint. It all makes for a total package that looks powerful, thoughtful, and distinct.

The interior does a great job creating a hardcore performance car that's also every day comfortable. It starts with custom bucket seats that completely envelop you and your passenger. The high central tunnel is at the exact right height to rest your arm while your right hand is firmly planted on the stick shift. Your left hand takes command of the Momo three-spoke sports steering wheel. Beyond that is a complete set of AutoMeter Pro-Comp Ultra Lite gauges. There's even a Joycar OBDII head-up-style display on top of the dash. While all this seems like everything you want in a track car, there are also features like the power windows and provisions for air conditioning (it likely needs a recharge) that make this one comfortable to drive well beyond the racetrack.

Factory Five developed the GTM utilizing some of the best components around. It starts with a mid-mounted fuel-injected LS6 Chevy V8 producing 400+ horsepower. This is mated to a Porsche G50 five-speed transaxle. The total package gives a good weight balance to Factory Five's custom chassis. After all, the entire car is supposed to weigh a mere 2,200 lbs. It makes the ultra-light C5 Z06 seem portly by comparison, and so the power-to-weight ratio really brings it into supercar territory! Many of the suspension components are borrowed from a C5 Corvette, including the four-wheel power disc brakes with drilled & slotted rotors. Keeping you firmly planted are also Michelin Pilot sports tires. But what this car understands better than most others you'll look at is aerodynamics. One of the best places to understand this engineering is by taking a look at the undercarriage photos. Those smooth flat panels on the bottom help move more air and are rarely seen on sports cars that don't share a price with premium Ferraris.

We have a build receipt file that documents the work and components that have gone into this car, including the initial professional assembly work. It all proves that this Factor Five GTM is the right combination of big power, light weight, proven engineering, and an awesome exotic style. 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!
