By Adrian Padeanu- Aug 16,2015
Galpin Ford and Henrik Fisker have unveiled the Rocket Speedster this weekend at Pebble Beach.
The coupe came out back in November 2014 at the Los Angeles Auto Show and now the open-top version painted in deep metallic red is being showcased at Pebble Beach. It’s obviously based on the Ford Mustang Convertible in GT specification and has received a speedster tonneau cover that starts from the front seats headrests and actually covers the rear seats.
All the custom body parts are manufactured from carbon fiber while the V8 5.0-liter engine has been supercharged to deliver a massive 725 bhp (540 kW) channeled to huge 21-inch bespoke alloy wheels. It comes with additional air scoops installed on the rear fenders to help direct air to the large 15-inch Brembo Gran Turismo high-performance brakes.
Galpin Ford and Henrik Fisker describe the Rocket Speedster as a concept, but it will enter limited production series at a yet undisclosed price tag.
