Henrik Fisher heading the HF Design is now in the spotlight with the 2015 Ford Mustang, a 725hp rocket developed with the help of an unexpected associate the Galpin Auto Sports, which customize vehicles from other brands. The firm based in California was known for the Pimp My Ride. When Fiskar met Beau Boeckmann, the GAS president with a few sketches to customize the 2015 Mustang, the firm was in for it.
Once the association was penned, Fisker immediately went on to work on a full blown model in clay. The outcome was supposed to recreate the 1968 Shelby GT500 spirit on all new Mustang bones. Except for the glass, which is found in the Ford assembly, rest of the body was uniquely fabricated from carbon fiber leaving just the roof and doors. Two massive intakes decorate the elongated hood; hexagonal grille made of carbon fiber, new deck-lid with the rear spoiler inducted, redesigned fenders and a muscular diffuser at the rear make up the car. All the aspects of the car were made to focus on channel airflow to cool the engine and to appease the down-force requirement.
The hardware changes include fully adjustable suspension, a supercharger attached to the V-8 making it 725hp capable. 15-inch Brembo brakes are used on all the wheels, and the rear brakes are fed with the air through a cut inflicted on the rear fenders. There are 21- inch wheels carrying the body, and it is covered by Pirelli P Zero rubber tires.
The Galpin Rocket is hoping to become the top most muscle car, and it looks unique without hiding its Mustang base. It is muscular, powerful and aggressive compared to the standard Mustang and it was shown at the LA auto show this year accompanied by The Equalizer soundtrack by Harry Gregson and looked the most impressive in the show.
