The first pictures of the Ford Mustang-based Galpin Auto Sports Rocket, designed by Henrik Fisker, have been released as the car makes it public debut at the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance. The Rocket is the Americans’ idea of a coachbuilt exotic car.
As such, Galpin Auto Sports Rocket seems to be barely more than a tuned and pimped-out Mustang GT with a huge new front grille, massively flared wheel arches, and a very slightly revised rear-end. New fog lights, mesh grille, custom side vents, and a sport vented bonnet are among the other changes that set this car apart from a normal Mustang.
Galpin Auto Sports Rocket appears to be designed for the gentleman who finds the standard Mustang a bit too ordinary, and the Shelby versions with their sprouting wings a bit too much. In our opinion it looks like one of those elaborately decorated Texan boots; you know, with spurs and everything!
In terms of performance, Galpin Auto Sports Rocket comes with a heavily tuned, and supercharged, version of the GT’s V8 engine with over 720 horsepower. The power is delivered to the ground via 21-inch ADV1 wheels and governed by adjustable sport suspension and Brembo brakes.
