pretty sure most of you are familiar with the famous gtm supercar from factory five racing.
it is a killer midengine sports car kit using a race inspired frame, corvette engine/suspension pieces, with a porsche transaxle.
released a little over two years ago, approx. 250 kits have been sold.
their latest display model uses a 500 hp ls7 motor and goes 0-60 in 3 seconds.
there are numerous gtms built specifically for racing, they are quite competitive due to the power and 2200 to 2400 pound weight.
the stock gtm body has a lot of ford gt40 influence and is quite graceful overall.
i had a few tweaks in mind to move the design more into exotic territory by:
-reducing front and rear overhang for a more modern look.
- incorporating a more aggressive set of upper/lower air scoops at body sides (replacing stock rear quarter window with scoop);
- making the fenders 'pop' visually;
- exploring distinctive front and rear treatments.
please note that in all versions, the same fender treatment and side intake config is used. this was an exercise in consistency for me.
thanks for taking the time to peruse the photoshops, any and all feedback is welcome and very much appreciated.
stock gtm is on top this comparison shot:
front, V1. this has some 50's ferrari influence, i also see a little 57 corvette in this one.
front, V3, including inset of stock gtm for comparison. note longer nose in stock config.
front v5, i call this sinister edition:
