Galpin Auto Sports previews Ford GT-based supercar
At the 2010 Los Angeles Auto Show Californian tuner Galpin Auto Sports (GAS) has announced plans for producing a supercar based on the 2005-2006 Ford GT.
According to the company the supercar, named GTR-1, will represent “what the Ford GT would have looked like if Ford had continued production of the legendary supercar”.
The GTR-1 will feature a nearly 1,000 hp powertrain, upgraded chassis, a handmade aluminum or carbon fiber coachwork, plus bespoke interior tailored to the customer’s specifications.
As some commenters noted, the GTR-1 previewed in these renderings shows a significant resemblance to the 2005 Ford Shelby GR-1 Concept, another sportscar based on the GT, especially in the front end and rear end surfacing.
Additional pictures and details will be available closer to the debut, which is planned for early 2013.
