Galpin Fisker Rocket Makes a 725 HP Statement

Galpin Auto Sports and Henrik Fisker unveiled a particularly exciting vehicle at the L.A. Auto Show today.

Larger, lower and more imposing than the normal Mustang it is based on, the Rocket makes a blistering 725 hp with a supercharged version of Ford’s 5.0-liter Coyote V8. As you can see, the Rocket is considerably wider than the normal Mustang but what you can’t see is that the custom body is made of carbon fiber.

Apart from being light, the body is also functional in its form with a front splitter that improves engine cooling and a large rear spoiler to increase aerodynamic downforce at high speed.

The design is inspired by past Mustangs including the legendary 1968 Shelby GT500. Nevertheless, this is a thoroughly modern vehicle with touches like massive 15-inch brake rotors sitting behind 21-inch wheels.

GAS and Henrik Fisker also completely revised the interior, generously upholstering it with red leather.

During the press conference, the companies emphasized that the Rocket is not a concept car, but a limited-run production vehicle that it will offer to customers in the near future. GAS didn’t say how many copies it will produce or what the hopped up ‘Stang will cost, but it did announce that production is slated to begin in December.

    Those rims make this car more cartoonish than anything else. Might as well get the regular Mustang.

    You do know you can buy different rims, right?

    The point is, other than the rims remark, get the original meaning the Mustang. Don’t see a point of getting the exact car borrowed from Ford and paying over $50,000.

    This is a very ugly car. So many things wrong I am amazed it made it to the market!
    It carries the ugly DNA straight from the failed electric car.
