Default Revenge Designs GTM-R supercar

Quote:
Hoping perhaps to follow in the footsteps of tuners turned manufacturers like Saleen, Decatur, Indiana-based Revenge Designs plans to unveil its own "all-American" supercar at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit this January. Known for tuning GM products, most notably the Pontiac Solstice and GTO, Revenge Designs has turned its expertise to the GTM-R supercar as its next project.

Revenge Designs' first original product is a svelte, mid-engine, rear-wheel drive supercar riding on a tube-steel Factory Five Racing chassis. A six-point roll cage with halo, 20-inch wheels and a tasteful, aerodynamic body give the GTM-R a clean look.

Specifications haven't been released yet, but we do know that Revenge Designs aimed to make this car a racer for the street. That means a light curb weight of just 2350 lbs, a six-speed sequential transmission and up to 650 horsepower from the GM-sourced engine. Revenge Designs claims a 3-second 0-60mph run, with an 11.6-second quarter mile. Luxury items like a touch-screen navigation system, backup camera and air conditioning will be standard equipment.

We'll have more details when the GTM-R debuts in Detroit in a couple of weeks.

It looks a lot like the Factory Five car.

I wonder how big the market is for six figure, mid engined, quasi-racer-supercars powered by an LSx is. It seems like there's a ton of these kinds of cars around or at least a lot of announcements about upcoming models of them.
