Mustang body becomes a two-seat carbon-fiber beast.
Atlast year's Los Angeles Auto Show, Henrik Fisker blew us away with his insaneMustang-based concept which he called the Rocket, built along with the folksfrom Galpin Auto Sports. Now, the Galpin-Fisker partnership has returned tounveil a two seat convertible version of the car, this time dubbedthe Rocket Speedster. The exotic rendition was shown on the Pebble Beach Concoursd’Elegance Concept Lawn, and promises to be as exciting as its coupe brother,which has been produced in just two examples (with 13 more on order).
The Speedster features a carbon-fiber cover that replaces theMustang's top. With two seats left, the design adds sportier aerodynamic features. The cover integrates mesh that runs behindthe cabin, channeling airflow over the rear deck. The Mustang GT's5.0-liter V8 remains, but is supercharged to produce 725 hp. Differentiatingit from the Mustangs you know, the car gains 21-inch wheels, more exterior color and that visible carbon-fiber grille. Inside are a body-color dashboard and leatherseatbacks. Pricing for the Speedster hasn't been released, but theRocket coupe ranges from $110K for 425 hp models to $150Kfor the 725 hp version.
