Though Henrik Fisker’s own electric carmaker is long gone, that doesn’t mean that the legendary car designer has hung his hat on the hook; he still gets the occasion to put pencil to paper now and again. In fact, at last year’s LA Auto Show, a Fisker-designed 2015 Ford Mustang GT fastback was present, sitting about as an inconspicuous – while drop-dead gorgeous – show car.
But lo and behold; the Galpin Auto Sports-tuned, Fisker-designed twist on the latest Mustang is actually market-bound. This weekend’s Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance will serve as the venue for the production 2015 Galpin-Fisker Rocket Mustang’s official debut.
Road & Track reports that the Galpin-Fisker Rocket Mustang starts life as a run-of-the-mill, Performance Pack-equipped 2015 Mustang GT, though it’s granted a new carbon fiber body from Gaffoglio Family Metalcrafters, Inc., not to mention the stunning looks inherent in any Fisker design. The base Rocket will start at a price of $109,100, and besides the rebody, adds a Galpin tune and a Bassani cat-back exhaust into the mix.
And then there’s the $125,000, 725 HP supercharged Galpin-Fisker Rocket Mustang, which gets special “725” decals on the hood not to mention, you know, the power to back it up. Wheels are either 20 or 21 inches, customer’s choice; the optional 21-inch set is on the black car in the photos below.
Beyond your choice of wheel sizes and either standard or supercharged models, there will be a number of different options, from an up-sized Gran Turismo brake package, to an interior wrapped in hand-finished leather and suede, and a premium sound package with an amplifier and an 8-inch sub. Customers even have the option of ordering the car with exposed carbon fiber hood stripes, as well as a few other exposed CF parts.
The Galpin-Fisker Rocket Mustang, then, is as gorgeous and slick as it is lethal on the road. Interested customers can order one through Galpin Ford, and the tuning company is hoping to set up a network of dealers in the future.
