AutoHunter Spotlight: 2022 Factory Five Racing GTM

Corvette bones and so much more

-

Featured on AutoHunter, the online auction platform driven by ClassicCars.com, is this 525-horsepower 2022 Factory Five Racing GTM. This kit-based supercar has been driven 800 miles since completion and features a spaceframe chassis, Chevrolet Corvette-derived mechanical components, and Forgestar wheels. Power comes from a mid-mounted Chevrolet Performance LS376 6.2-liter V8 crate engine mated to an RBT five-speed manual transaxle. This car was assembled by the seller as part of a multi-year project that began in 2021 and includes creature comforts such as power windows, Bluetooth stereo, and air conditioning. Finished in Toxic Sunburst over a black microfiber and vinyl interior, this custom GTM is now offered with build documentation and a clear title in the seller’s name.

The Factory Five Racing GTM kit uses a composite body placed over a spaceframe that is joined by a matrix of aluminum subframe panels. The Toxic Sunburst exterior is accented with black roof, hood vents, and door handles. Features include auxiliary lighting, electric door poppers, carbon fiber side-view mirrors, and dual exhausts.

The 18-inch front and 19-inch rear bronze Forgestar wheels are wrapped in 275/40ZR18 front and 305/25ZR19 rear Nitto NT555 G2 tires.

The cockpit is fitted with dual black microfiber and vinyl bucket seats. The passenger compartment is protected by a six-point roll cage with roof-contoured bars. Features include power windows, collapsible steering column with leather-wrapped steering wheel, air conditioning, Bluetooth stereo, and diamond-plate aluminum floor panels.

Instrumentation is displayed within a carbon fiber bezel and includes a 200-mph speedometer, 8,000-rpm tachometer, and auxiliary gauges for the oil pressure, fuel level, and coolant temperature. The digital odometer currently reads 800 miles, which reflects the mileage accrued since the completion of the build.

The mid-mounted Chevrolet Performance LS376 6.2-liter is rated at 525 horsepower. Output is directed to the rear wheels via a console-shifted RBT five-speed manual transaxle. Performance upgrades include a Kennedy Engineered Products bell housing, McLeod Racing clutch, oversized radiator, cooling fans, and Optima battery.

The chassis uses a four-corner coilover suspension. Stopping power comes from Chevrolet Corvette-sourced disc brakes.

The auction for this 525-horsepower 2022 Factory Five Racing GTM ends Friday, February 2, 2024 at 12:00  p.m. (MST)

Lead Writer Diego Rosenberg is a native of Wilmington, Delaware and Princeton, New Jersey, giving him plenty of exposure to the charms of Carlisle and Englishtown. Though his first love is Citroen, he fell for muscle cars after being seduced by 1950s finned flyers—in fact, he’s written two books on American muscle. But please don’t think there is a strong American bias because foreign weirdness is never far from his heart. With a penchant for underground music from the 1960-70s, Diego and his family reside in metropolitan Phoenix.
