The first Galpin Rocket has arrived and it looks sensational.
Unveiled in LA last year, the first production Galpin Rocket has arrived and of course it's been blacked out. "The ultimate American muscle car," according to Henrik Fisker who co-designed the Mustang-based Rocket with Galpin Auto Sport, the stunning car comes with a a 725-hp powerplant and carbon fiber body with inspiration coming from the pony cars of the 1960's and 1970's, most notably the 1968 Shelby GT500.
The Rocket sports a sculptured hood with two large air intakes that supplements the six-point grille and carbon-fiber front splitter in keeping the 725-hp 5.0-liter supercharged V8 (mated to a six-speed manual) nice and cool. Additional scoops on the rear fenders also help to cool the 15-inch Brembo Grand Turismo high-performance brakes. Other handmade carbon-fiber body parts include the rear spoiler, rear diffuser, and side skirts. Galpin President Beau Boeckmann, said "it's literally the most beautiful Mustang I have ever seen." If you agree, and you want one, then act fast as it will be rolled out in limited production run priced at around $100,000.
