The GTM is a V-8 powered, mid-engined rear wheel drive car with a composite body shell and an aluminum and a unique proprietary steel tube frame chassis. The car uses GM high-performance parts such as engine, drivetrain, suspension components with four-corner coil-over shocks, performance brakes, and a transaxle. The GTM is light and aerodynamic, with excellent weight distribution and precise race-car handling/braking derived from the Chevrolet Corvette C5. In the September 2007 issue, Car and Driver reviewed a prototype GTM LS7 and their testing achieved 0-60 mph in 3. 0 seconds and 1/4 mile in 11 seconds at 134 mph, beating the tested speeds of European Supersportscars like the Ferrari 599 GTO, Porsche Carrera GT, Lamborghini Murcielago SV, Ferrari Enzo and several other considerably more expensive exotic production vehicles. The car, i. e. chassis, and all components are engineered in-house and can be assembled to the finished completed car by the customer. Items such as A/C, power windows, and a complete interior are available and make the vehicle suitable for general use as a daily driver on public roads in the United States, where the vehicle can be regularly registered.
