Is the Factory Five F9R Kit a CHEAP SUPERCAR?

Factory Five Racing, a popular kit car and replica brand based out of Massachusetts, is designing a new replacement to their GTM supercar kit. Called the F9R, this mid-engine exotic track weapon uses a full carbon fiber body and a massive 9.5-liter LS V12 for MAXIMUM performance! Not only does its engine sound incredible, but the F9R also looks fantastic with a digitally-designed exterior made using CAD and VR technology. While some details (such as pricing and release date) are unknown, the Factory Five F9R still looks like a promising affordable supercar.

    Its a fucking Corvette .🤷🏾‍♂️

  2. Bam Bam 444 on September 18, 2020 at 3:54 pm

    And this will be completely out of any normal persons price range. This is easily a 70k car if not more

  3. JAMES TUTTLE on September 18, 2020 at 3:55 pm

    They try to sound really smart, BUT. The 5.0 liter is around 302 cubic inches. The formula was created back in the ’70s for the TransAm racing series and every manufacturer had an engine in that range. Chevy had the 302, Dodge had the 305 and ford had the 302 (which was actually smaller than 302 inches)

    This car probably ain’t happening and if it does better phone it ships very fast because really what’s going on is they are not sure china manufacturers can deliver it which they can make it but their economy is literally starting to tank into a black whole and it is never coming back the world has started an official trade war with China.

  5. Dale Allred on September 18, 2020 at 3:56 pm

    A 302 and a 5L are the same displacement!

  6. Valkyrie on September 18, 2020 at 3:56 pm

    You can tell some of the designs is from the divo

  7. Godchi1d Von Steuben on September 18, 2020 at 3:57 pm

    5.0 litre Coyote’s aren’t the "massive" ones… it’s the 5.4 that’s "massive," & More appropriate for "track weapons."

  8. Danny Lee on September 18, 2020 at 4:00 pm

    The GTM will never be built for 50 Grand. He said the car needs a few bits and pieces in addition to an engine from a Corvette. You failed to mention the $20,000 transaxle from a Porsche. Which are getting harder and harder to find. To do a good job on one of these cars going to cost you somewhere between 70 and $90,000 once it’s completely sorted. And the body takes an extraordinary long time to get it to fit correctly. Just in case anybody thinking about buying one now you know!

  9. Thomas Marks on September 18, 2020 at 4:02 pm

    Like to see ability to have a pale shift

  10. frosty A B on September 18, 2020 at 4:05 pm

    so they’re replacing a mid engine supercar with a "mid engine" GT touring car, no respectable racing car has engine in front of the driver, nice step back

  11. Guy on September 18, 2020 at 4:05 pm

    You’re really proud of that R3 huh?

  12. Dont ask on September 18, 2020 at 4:06 pm

    7.3 Godzilla twin turbo 😋

  13. Tiny Dr. Phil on September 18, 2020 at 4:08 pm

    Aston Martin called; they want there zagoto back.

  14. Mardi styles on September 18, 2020 at 4:08 pm

    Twin turbo coyote engine in it would be awesome

  15. Retro Gamer Sev on September 18, 2020 at 4:10 pm

    Factory 5 racing cars like the type65 and mk4(cant even use real names due to copyright) are just shitty fiberglass fakes, rather save up and buy the continuation cars from shelby themselves, the factory5 kits are dangerous, you need to know what you doing to build them to a safe standard

  16. Steven Lindsey on September 18, 2020 at 4:11 pm

    I would rather have a C8.

  17. Justin Whalen on September 18, 2020 at 4:12 pm

    That moment when you realize that the small block 302 is the exact same displacement as that "MASSIVE!" coyote…lol.

  18. DeDe Gaming on September 18, 2020 at 4:13 pm

    Wait so does it or does it not have a v12

  19. Mee Ibast on September 18, 2020 at 4:14 pm

    600 hrs sounds like a recipe of an unfinished project to me. That’s 10 hours out of every weekend for over a year. That’s not realistic. The reality is that will take 3 years to finish when life gets in the way. Kit cars need to ideally be 200 hrs. 400 max. Then you can bang in a few big weekends and the beginning and end and do 5-10 hours a week in between.

  20. Keld Tundraking on September 18, 2020 at 4:15 pm

    I don’t get how "more room" is a good reason to move the engine up front…. when we’re talking about a bespoke car. They could have fit the v12 in the back… Like right on the heels of the corvette finally going MR with it’s layout specifically to escape the limit they hit with putting down power on the old layout.. this is a really awkward move. Like the #1 question for everyone looking at this is going to be "but what if Instead I modified a C8?"

  21. Enderjeff 29 on September 18, 2020 at 4:17 pm

    This car looks like the Aston Martin Vulcan and the italdesign zerouno had a baby

  22. HandyMan101 on September 18, 2020 at 4:17 pm

    This begs the question. Why are cars so expensive if they are this nice with 50k?

  23. Godchi1d Von Steuben on September 18, 2020 at 4:17 pm

    I’m going to subscribe. I’ve been working on cars since the early 90’s, building them since the early 00’s, am pursuing an engineering degree, and am designing, what will be, the worlds first quantumcar. I know a bit more than you, on your channels chosen topic. So if you’d like consultation on fact checking, subject matter and content, before actually publishing videos, I’m available. Feel free to contact me. I’ll DM you contact info. Latr…

  24. Fu Dog Whisperer on September 18, 2020 at 4:17 pm

    Very disappointed in the look. I don’t like it. I like the GTM MUCH better even though its dated.

  25. Ferd Janklow on September 18, 2020 at 4:21 pm

    "Infamous" Cobra kits? I don’t think that means what you think it means. What is "Frent mid engine"? Wait, how do you review a car that hasn’t even been prototyped, much less produced. This is a silly young man.

  26. Von Crager on September 18, 2020 at 4:22 pm

    Sorry. Ugly.

  27. Terryray123 on September 18, 2020 at 4:23 pm

    We need supra kit car.

  28. 7891ph on September 18, 2020 at 4:24 pm

    Where’s the links to Factory Five??? Pretty basic screw up to not include it.

  29. sifudank on September 18, 2020 at 4:24 pm

    Why is he kneeling down for 8 minutes ? Is he proposing to that R3 ? Well she is pretty .

  30. Cryptic Rite on September 18, 2020 at 4:24 pm

    But but but….. Vaydor….

  31. Zolden on September 18, 2020 at 4:25 pm

    Is it me or this looks like a vulcan?

  32. Godchi1d Von Steuben on September 18, 2020 at 4:26 pm

    7500 rpm’s, from a dual plane crank V12… Unless it’s supercharged… specifically SUPER charged, it’s going to be a pig compared to modern V12 supercars. They should have a flat plane V12. Would have brought up the rpm’s about a grand, made it rev more like an F1 car, and have better response to turbo charging. Bringing down the cost, versus supercharging, for those who opt for forced induction. Just sayin, I can get 7500 rpm’s out of a Civic. Slap a single, and a coilover kit on that, and it’s a track car… They probably should’ve flat plane/supercharged it. The cost of a finished example would probably only go up to $75k, instead of $50k, and they would sell exactly the same, because people looking at $50k sportscars/supercars, expect to pay between 65, and $75k when all is said and done, anyway… y’know??

  33. Godchi1d Von Steuben on September 18, 2020 at 4:29 pm

    You described it as a kit car, with a 750hp V12, then a few minutes later stated "the cost is just under $25k, excluding some key components, like the LS crate motor." Does it come with a 12, or require a crate 8. Watch your videos, before you post them…

  34. Godchi1d Von Steuben on September 18, 2020 at 4:29 pm

    Wow man, you might not be schooled enough to be producing these videos. Unless you don’t mind having an audience composed exclusively of people who don’t know much about cars, and getting heckled by douchebags like me. Did you really just say that moving the engine from rear mid-chasis, to front mid-chasis allows room for a larger engine? No it doesn’t, that’s absurd. Chasis placement of the engine has absolutely nothing to do with the amount of room available for engines of varying size. Especially when you’re completely redesigning the vehicle. What size engines you can, or can’t fit, front mid, or rear mid, depends solely on frame (and potentially sub-frame, if used)/chasis design. If they wanted to keep it in the rear, they could’ve, regardless in the bump in size. However in this day and age of the C8 Corvette, trying to sell a rear mid-chasis sportscar, in the $50k dollar range, is a fools errand. However, there is a hole in the supercar market, that has not been re-filled yet. They bumped the vehicle up from a V8 to a V12, and then placed the engine in the front, directly behind the front axle, to pick up on all of the Viper customers that no longer have a car to purchase. Rather than compete with the C8 Corvette, by producing a similar car, with a similar pricetag, that you have to build on your own, that lacks the Corvette badge, and GM warranty. Reconfigure the car to be more like the now missing Vipers, and front engine Corvettes, as their traditional "American muscle" configurations, though wildly popular amongst U.S. car enthusiasts, are now unrepresented in the new car marketplace. THATS why they moved it to the front mid-chasis… not because there’s room for a bigger engine there. No such thing. You can put any size engine, wherever you want, just depends on chasis, and frame design…

  35. HDG on September 18, 2020 at 4:29 pm

    Factory Five looking good now.

  36. jr harlow on September 18, 2020 at 4:31 pm

    Says front kinda weird or is that just me

  37. Ricky Reeves on September 18, 2020 at 4:32 pm

    If he says frint instead of front, one more time..

  38. J.C. Kohle on September 18, 2020 at 4:36 pm

    Pretty good. The Ultima review was exceptional for a YT work. I think I like this F9R car for its looks more.However I give the new Ultima credit for being faster. Well ; Thanks. Keep polishing your productions. You seem to possess a talent for the work you are doing !

  39. Godchi1d Von Steuben on September 18, 2020 at 4:36 pm

    35-$45k is WAAAY off, a s a price estimate. You’re vastly underestimating the cost of a carbon fiber shell, upgrade from fiberglass. You’re looking at 50-$60k, easily…

  40. Erie on September 18, 2020 at 4:36 pm

    Say "front" again

  41. Godchi1d Von Steuben on September 18, 2020 at 4:37 pm

    Yeah, they’re going after the Viper, and front engine Corvette purists, crowds… which is smart…

  42. Glass Cannon 624 on September 18, 2020 at 4:41 pm

    It looks like something from Ridge Racer. I want it.

  43. Lance Brown on September 18, 2020 at 4:41 pm

    I swear he has a green screen showing that dumb 300cc bike

  44. mastryda on September 18, 2020 at 4:44 pm

    Looks like a Jag or an Aston. Think the GTM looks better..

  45. Vincent dimatteo on September 18, 2020 at 4:45 pm

    me looking to find more things to stuff a twin turbo big block hemi: *maniacal laughter*

    Factory five meaning for this car to suit a v12: *immense confusion, a bit of fear*

  46. Jeff Eradus on September 18, 2020 at 4:45 pm

    Looks like the real next toyota supra from the side (fast and the furious 1 brains Orange supra)

  47. BM on September 18, 2020 at 4:45 pm

    It won’t be “cheap” lol.

  48. Realtime1501 on September 18, 2020 at 4:48 pm

    Ecoboost V6 might be a good option as well 600hp with that better weight balance will be great

  49. Kenneth Roth on September 18, 2020 at 4:49 pm

    How does the smog laws work if the car is new since u cant modify the engine for more power ie turbos

  50. Truth Kangen on September 18, 2020 at 4:50 pm

    His knees gotta hurt kneeling like that.
