Los Angeles – A new era for Galpin Auto Sports (GAS) has arrived with the announcement of its top secret supercar project, the GTR-1, at the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show.
Beau Boeckmann, President of GAS announced the company is currently building a prototype of what the Ford GT would have looked like if Ford had continued production of the legendary supercar.
Built in the spirit of Carroll Shelby – making existing production cars faster and even higher performance – the GTR-1 is based off of Ford’s popular GT that was built from 2005 – 2006. The specially developed supercar will have more than 1000 horsepower and will be available with the choice of handmade aluminum or carbon fiber coachwork, upgraded drivetrain and suspension modifications and a bespoke interior tailored to the customer’s specifications.
Additional pictures, details and specs will be available closer to the GTR-1’s debut in early 2013.
