Revenge Designs GTM-R supercar to debut in Detroit

Revenge Design GTM-R supercar

First original product from Indiana-based GM tuner

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.

What exactly is the part of "It's own design" that is not an exact copy of the Factory Five GTM?!?!? Bremen is spot on in his observation in this car and it could equally apply to the SSC. All of these cars are nothing more than overglorified kit cars. I personally don't think that there is anything wrong with kit cars and I even love some like Kelmark and the Fiberfab Jamaican, however, a kit car is not the best Americans can do. Its just the best that a few cash strapped doomed operations choose to build. Laraki is an example of a builder with sexy cars that could have and should have inspired American designers. As long as we have this Harley-Davidson fascination with old big engines without real performance, these dreams will come and go and go they rightfully should.

Was anyone else thinking of the Farbio GTS when you see the side?
