Galpin Rocket Mustang Teased, Will Be Unveiled at the Los Angeles Auto Show

Deliveries of the 2015 Ford Mustang just started, yet the tuning world is mad in love with the Blue Oval’s all-new pony. Big outfits like Roush, RTR, Steeda and so on had their way with tuning it, but now is the time for Galpin Auto Sports to work its magic on the sixth-generation Mustang.

For the unknowing, Galpin Auto Sports (or GAS) is one of the oldest spare and aftermarket parts shop in the States. A part of Ford’s largest dealer franchise, Galpin was established in 1946 and located in Van Nuys, California. GAS recently announced that it will take the LA Auto Show by storm next week with a new vehicle baptized Rocket. But this isn’t your ordinary souped up 2015 Ford Mustang.

That teaser shot above reveals visual add-ons such as big, five-spoke concave alloy wheels, side skirts like surfboards, a couple of vents behind the driver’s door, as well as muscularly flared wheel arches. Described as “the ultimate American muscle car,” this is the joint effort of Galpin and Henrik Fisker.

Who’s Henrik Fisker you ask? Well, this lad penned modern classics such as the Aston Martin DB9 and V8 Vantage, BMW Z8, initial Tesla Model S design and the now defunct Fisker Karma. It’s such a shame Fisker got sour and Henrik has been out of the public eye since late 2013.

Henrik's a talented designer you know, one that has a lot more to prove in the world of automotive design. His resume makes us expect great things from the Galpin Auto Sports Rocket. Without any other hard details on it, better stay tuned until November 20th for more Galpin Rocket details.
