A few days after Saleen announced its plans to build a modern-day 351 Mustang , another aftermarket company — Galpin Auto Sports — took to the LA Auto Show to announce its own supercar project: the Galpin Ford GTR1.
Now here we are, nearly a year later, and Galpin is all set to launch the GTR1 at the on the Concept Lawn at the 2013 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.
With just under a year to fully develop and test the GTR1, Galpin took to task and creat4ed quite the monster that makes use of a 5.4-liter V-8 engine that puts down well overt 1,000 horsepower and abuses rubber by way of more than 700 pound-feet of torque.
Sure this Ford GT-inspired supercar sure does look ignorant on paper, but can it really hang with the likes of the Bugatti Veyron and Ferrari LaFerrari?
Find out if it can and so much more about this new supercar after the jump.
