    Anyone seen the factory 5 GTM?? Looks badass. I wonder if anyone has built one here.

    It's weird you posted that. I was just visiting (and "Liking") their Facebook page just before I saw your post. I've been on the fence about the GTM. I like it, but haven't really been smitten with it until today when I ran across this photo:

    yeah looks good. says around $19K, but how much really would it cost.... would it be cheaper than a g28 build? or a dna 430?

    I believe they note the finished car being over $50,000 (out of pocket costs, using a used vette), have a look at used ones. I think the last used one I saw was $80,000.

    i heard you can finished it off for 45 - 50k but only with used parts, if you buy only new parts it will be somewhere in the range of 65- 80k depending on spec. and 70-80k thats also the price range those cars sell later on ( also cheaper but the ones, which were build with new parts arent under 70k)

    Find someone who has one and sit in it before you buy. They are a little hard to get in and out of and I find the dash to be rather high. Probably not much worse than a lot of other "super cars" though. There are two forums for this car.

    I have not built one but did paint one for a customer. It is not a cheap build. The kit is $20k but it does not come with much. He budgeted $50k and ended up with around $85k in it. For a car that looks 1960's, I would rather have a GT40 for about the same money. My opinion, and I promise not worth much. As Eric (txbuilder) said, it is very difficult to get in and out of, visibility is not very good either. But as all light mid-engine cars, a blast to drive. I have yet to see one that the door glass fits well.

    My dealer had one for 100k. The interior needed some work to make it look professional. Normally double the costs. Then you are close. Labor for someone else to build it would be a lot if that was the way you want to go,
