This is the Galpin GTR1, a bespoke sports car that was unveiled in Pebble Beach today.

The car is described by its makers, Galpin Auto Sports, as being 'a vision of what a Ford GT may have looked and performed like today'.

It is powered by a 1024bhp 5.4-litre V8 with 739lb ft of torque. Galpin says the car has a three second 0-60mph time and a top speed over 225mph.

As such, it is based on a Ford GT and features a hand-built aluminium body plus carbonfibre detailing, LED headlights, and 20-inch wheels. The interior is reminiscent of the Ford GT's, but features extensive use of leather, an uprated stereo and a bespoke dash.

Galpin says between six and 24 GTR1s will be built, with prices starting at $1,000,000 (£640,000).

Our Verdict

Ford Mustang V8 Fastback

The Ford Mustang is available in the UK in right-hand drive for the first time, but does the rest of this American muscle car fit the UK car scene?

'a vision of what a Ford GT may have looked and performed like today - if Mansory got their hands on 24 of them'

 

Angel where are they going to get 24 new Ford GT donor cars?

 

(b) who let Matel loose on in the interior design department?

 

and

 

(c) we already know what a modern Ford GT may have looked like, Ford built it quite successfully a few years back with only marginally less performance, half(isn) the power and 80% cheaper.

 

Well done Galpin dudes.

    Kia's Rio-based SUV is short on personality and interior finesse, but it's one of the better-handling small SUVs out there. Can that give it an edge over the Nissan Juke?
