Originally founded as an automobile dealership and repair shop, Galpin Auto Sports has evolved into the No. 1 volume Ford dealership in the world. More importantly, GAS also established its very own tuning arm, which has created a host of beefed-up Mustangs and the GTR1, a 1,024-horsepower supercar based on the Ford GT. With the 2014 SEMA Show just around the corner, Galpin has crafted yet another bespoke Mustang, this time around based on the redesigned, 2015 pony.

Although GAS is not the first company to meddle with the all-new Mustang, the California-based shop is the first tuner to build a one-off muscle car to celebrate the car’s first 50 years of continuous production. This pretty much explains the gold accents adorning the Mustang’s otherwise black exterior. Naturally, Galpin’s first 2015 Mustang isn’t just about visuals. GAS added some extensive upgrades under the hood as well, along with a new suspension system to handle the pony’s increased output figures. But you’ll have to skip past the jump to find out more about that.

Ford Mustang By Galpin Auto Sports in detail

You can tell this is no factory 2015 Mustang as soon as you take a peek at its front fascia. The most notable front feature is the bumper, which has been redesigned to match the three fins found in the headlamps. The piece a lot more muscular when compared to the standard unit and features carbon-fiber splitter that reduces curb weight and improves aerodynamics. New headlamps with sequential LED turn signals and gold-painted housings have been added as well. The final touches include a gold stallion emblem.

The gold, Hertz-like theme continues onto the sides by means of gold-painted rims and brake calipers, side skirts and "5.0" badges. Needless to say, the black-and-gold combo is stunning to look at.

Speaking of stunning, Galpin’s Mustang becomes even more spectacular under the hood. The 5.0-liter Coyote V-8 is now joined by a Whipple supercharger — also powder-coated in gold — and churns an astounding 725 ponies. Other mechanical tweaks include an all-new exhaust from Magnaflow and suspension components sourced from Steeda.

This GAS-built Mustang is set to remain a one-off, so don’t expect to find it on sale through Galpin’s nationwide network. You can, however, admire it during this year’s SEMA Show in Las Vegas between November 4th and 7th.

The 2015 Mustang just started hitting cutomers’ hands and Ford is already issuing a recall.

Completely redesigned for the 2015 model year, the Ford Mustang received a brand-new exterior, a revised interior, and a host of drivetrain and chassis updates. For the first time in its 50-year history, save for a handful of SVTs, the pony gaines an independent rear suspension. Three engines are available at launch, with an all-new, 2.3-liter EcoBoost unit joining the already familiar 3.7-liter V-6 and 5.0-liter V-8.

The six-banger returned with 300 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque, while the turbocharged four-pot cranks 310 horsepower and 320 pound-feet of twist. The range-topping 5.0-liter V-8 now cranks out 435 ponies and 400 pound-feet of torque, a 15-horsepower and 10-pound-feet improvement over 2014.

Pricing for the 2015 Mustang begins from $23,600 for the V-6 model and $25,170 for the EcoBoost. The Coyote-powered GT model retails from $32,100.

Press Release

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.

Open the hood to find a Whipple supercharger sitting atop the 5.0-liter Coyote V8. This is no off-the-shelf unit though; it’s been custom powder-coated to appear gold. A glass window integrated into the hood is designed to show off the engine, but the GAS Mustang is not just about looks. The car produces an astounding 725 horsepower. Suspension components from Steeda and an all-new exhaust from Magnaflow round out the mechanical enhancements.

“We like the black and gold idea, and really wanted to get the color as close to 24-carat gold as possible,” said Brandon Boeckmann, GAS operations manager. The 20-inch wheels, side sills, brake calipers and badging are all finished in gold. Inside, everything that is normally chrome or metallic has either been blacked-out or given the Midas touch. The Recaro seats are covered with a fabric finished in black and gold, and the headliner is black microsuede. The exterior is finished in paint that may appear black, but on further inspection is filled with gold metallic flecks.

The 2015 GAS Ford Mustang will be on display in the expansive 20,000-square-foot Ford booth at the 2014 SEMA show taking place at Las Vegas Convention Center, Nov. 4-7.
