Galpin Auto Sports (GAS) and Henrik Fisker announced today the start of low-volume production on the 725hp coach-built super Mustang dubbed “The Rocket,” which was first unveiled as a prototype last November during the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show. The first production model will make its world debut at the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance, March 14, where a select number of media will also have the opportunity to drive it.

Who wouldn’t like to see their gas money stretch further? Better gas mileage means fewer trips to the pump and more money in the pocket every month. As appealing as this seems, it’s remarkable that few drivers rarely “work” at saving gas. The funny thing is that if you put just a modest effort into this, you can increase your gas mileage by 10-20% or more. And it isn’t that hard to do!
The Rocket’s design is unmistakably inspired by specialty pony cars of the 1960’s and early 1970’s including the 1968 Shelby GT500. Anchored by an imposing hexagonal carbon fiber grill—which is split by a polished aluminum bar and wild horse running across the horizon reminiscent of the ’60’s Mustangs—the Rocket’s lines emanate from the front, through the long hood, over a set of sculptured flared fenders and converge on its integrated rear spoiler, belying the car’s extreme power and refined athleticism.
The tuning arm of the largest Ford dealer in the United States, Galpin Auto Sports, also known as GAS, is paying tribute to the long history of Ford Mustang with a customized car debuting at the 2014 Specialty Equipment Market Association show. The 2015 GAS Mustang carries a golden anniversary concept to celebrate the car’s 50 years of continuous production.
GAS began by giving the all-new Mustang a facelift, borrowing styling elements found elsewhere in the car. The front fascia is restyled to match the three strakes found in the factory headlights. New headlights have been created that integrate LED turn signals and turn on in sequence – just like the rear turn signals. A carbon fiber front splitter and rocker panels have been installed, as well as a more aggressive rear diffuser.
People are looking at cars much differently than they did a decade ago. Rising gas prices as well as other economic factors have changed what people need out of a car. Automakers are finally starting to come around to producing what the consumers want. What are some of the current car buying trends?
