Niche car company Revenge Designs has unveiled the Revenge GTM-R Super Car here at the 2009 Detroit Auto Show. It's a 505 HP mid-engine offering and the first complete car from Revenge.
The Revenge GTM-R is basically a fully tricked-out version of the Factory Five GTM chassis, so it does all the work the GTM buyer would have to do themselves. The GTM-R boasts a GM supplied 427 cubic inch V8 good for 505 HP at 6300 rpm and 470 lb-ft of torque at 4800 rpm. The suspension has a fully independent, Revenge-designed double A-arm layout and rides on a clever air ride suspension with three settings: "high transportation setting, competition/track setting, and anti-theft/non-driveable setting. No stealing this sports car. High intensity lights are installed up front and how could you miss the bookshelf spoiler installed at the rear? We would ridicule this as yet another supercar offering except the Revenge GTM-R only tips the scales at an impressive 2,550 lbs.
The cabin is fitted with customer's choice leather and equipment, modern digital instrumentation, touch screen controls, paddle shifters for the transmission, a backup camera (because you can't see out the rear) and a premium sound system. The whole package starts at $145,000 and goes up from there. Considering the GTM-R is debuting into a market positively begging for more exotic, high-powered, incredibly specialized cars, we wish them all the luck in the world.
