GTM Supercar | Sat, 02 Sep 2006 Posted by : Shannon Larratt
My friend Matt went to a recent cruise night in Westford, Massachusetts and bumped into this yellow FFR GTM, sort of a hybrid between a Corvette and a GT-40. If the occasionally odd lines of the car don’t bother you, this is easily one of the best cars in its class for the price.
Carlisle 2006, Conventions, GTM Supercar | Sun, 11 Jun 2006 Posted by : Shannon Larratt
One of the hottest cars at Carlisle 2006 was the Factory Five GTM Supercar, which to me sort of looks like a Ferrari 360 from the back and a modernized GT40 (although that’s not being entirely fair). What blew me away was they designed this car to be built for under $30,000, and the full kit sells for $19k! It’s a complete kit that you can finish with Corvette parts and a Porsche transaxle (G50). Having sat in the car it’s incredibly comfortable (I’m 6’2″, 220 pounds, and I saw a guy a lot bigger than me sit in it as well).
Anyway, it was hard to get a good shot of the car because it there were always people gathered around it, and it was inside rather than outside so I couldn’t get any distance from it (and even if I could, as soon as a I stepped away, others took my place). I can tell you though that theses pictures (and ones I’ve seen in magazines) don’t do the car justice.
