- USED CARS
Do you want to go racing or just want street legal race car performance? From the ’33 Hot Rod to GTM Supercar, the new 818 and of course the iconic ’65 427 Cobra, we highly recommend Factory Five Racing for their excellent selection of well engineered models.
If you have ever dreamed of owning a collectible dream car that would be prohibitively expensive to acquire (or drive) as an original then a kit car may just be the way to go. A perfect example is this classic AC 427 Cobra.
Even if you could afford the original and risked driving it on the open road, a well-built kit car, using modern technology and parts, would outperform it in every imaginable way. And if you want something that is truly one-of-a-kind, a kit is a great way to go, because they offer unique models and have the potential to customize in just about every respect.
Perhaps you bought a kit that’s now sitting in the corner of your garage because you don’t have the time to finish it. We can help. Talk to us about completing your project based on your budget. Or, we may be interested in purchasing the kit from you.
Many things capture the eye, few however, capture the heart. The new Factory Five GTM does both. It is an instant icon… a Supercar in its purest and most elemental form. Every part, each curve and angle work together to accomplish a single pure goal of absolute performance.
The GTM is an all-new American V-8 powered, mid-engined, original design with a stunningly beautiful hand-crafted composite body shell and a computer designed steel tube frame chassis. It is a fantasy Supercar engineered to be affordable and bring the dream of owning such a car to people whose talents and craftsmanship outrun their bank accounts.
This is not your grandfather’s ’33 Ford. The design goal of this car is pure vintage lines dragged kicking and screaming into the 21st century with computer aided design and technology along with race car engineering.
With cutting edge performance and real world driving comfort, the stylized Factory Five ’33 takes the beauty of the original design to the next level. The car is wider, lower, and more radical than the original. FFR used years of race car design/engineering to build a modern hot rod that will out-accelerate, out-handle, and out-brake established sports cars like Corvettes, Porsches, and Ferraris, in a shape that is 100% pure American Hot Rod muscle.
The Hot Rod weighs 2,000 lbs. and when powered by a 400 HP small block, it’ll make most supercars feel slow and heavy. With race proven suspension and brakes, the car will turn and stop just as quickly.
The 818 is all about new horizons for the team at Factory Five Racing. We are using the very latest technology to engineer new levels of performance and bring this experience to an entirely new generation of car-builders here in the U.S. and all around the world.
The latest Solidworks CAD technology is being used to design, test, and make the car. The body, chassis and sub-systems have been designed 100% on the computer. New technology in the design of tools and molds, and in the CNC manufacture of the frame and welded parts. New technology in the forming of composite body panels which enable a no-paint finish.
It’s a global marketplace and the 818 is destined to bring the Factory Five experience to a whole new group of people, not just in the U.S., but all over the world. Designed to be affordable to build, right or left-hand drive capable, and with components that are readily available in other countries, the 818 is Factory Five’s first “World Car”.
But it’s not just exporting the FFR experience to other countries… at the same time we are also inviting an entire new generation of Subaru-knowledgeable car-builders to the Factory Five community.
At a lithe 1800 lbs., (the 818 stands for 818 kg or 1800 lbs), the newest Factory Five has a performance envelope unlike any Factory Five to date. Benefitting from the latest technology in flow analysis, chassis and suspension tuning, and an optimized mid-engine design with proven Subaru boxer engine architecture, the 818 will redefine fun driving.
Type 65 Coupe
This car is one of the most unique and stunning shapes in automotive history. Even today, more than 40 years later, the muscular lines and aggressive stance has no equal.
Each Factory Five Type 65 Coupe is true to the road racing legacy that gave the design its birth, and yet with modern engineering and technologies.
We have extensive experience building Factory Five Racing kit cars. And we also have the knowledge necessary to register your Kit Car in the Province of Ontario which saves you the headaches and insurance issues associated with doing it yourself.
We can take care of every aspect of ordering, importing, and assembling it to your specifications. And we can complete the project as a true “turn-key: Factory Five car just for you.
