    Snap-On Tools Builds a Factory Five Gen 3 Coupe-R

    This past March, we built an all-new Gen 3 Type 65 Coupe-R with the crew from Snap-On Tools here at Factory Five. The build was for their show "From the Ground-Up" and features our new Coupe along with Ford's awesome new 5.2L Aluminator 52XS 580 HP crate engine based on the Voodoo engine, but with a conventional cross plane crank. Check out episode 1 below where they kick-off the build. A new installment in the four-part series debuts over the next few weeks on Thursday.

    In episode 4 of Snap-on Tools' series "From the Ground Up," NASCAR driver Joey Logano drops the hammer on the brand-new Coupe at Charlotte Motor Speedway! During the filming, it rained non-stop and the producers asked if the car could still run. What resulted was some serious mayhem in the rain. Logano loved the car, and rumor is that the car will be featured in an upcoming television show with Jory Logano driving it full on race pace in the dry.
