Galpin Fisker Rocket Will Cost Just Over $100,000

We had our man Zac visit Galpin Fisker’s LA Auto Show stand and take a few shots of their new Rocket, a 725hp supercharged 2015 Mustang with a carbon-fiber body designed by Henrik Fisker.

This isn’t a one-off concept, but a low-volume, coach-built sports car, production of which will begin in December with first deliveries expected in early 2015.

Galpin-Fisker has yet to finalize pricing, but the company said in LA that the V8-powered Rocket will start at a little over $100,000.

Those interested will have the chance to order the car through car through Galpin Ford directly or through one of several “hand-picked dealers” across the US and around the world.

Fisker said that he came up with the idea of a coach-built 2015 Mustang earlier this year and in August of 2014, he approach Galpin Auto Sports president Beau Boeckmann and shared some advanced sketches. The two men met again and eventually came to an agreement to build the car they named Rocket.

“It’s a special moment when you get to work on a car like the Ford Mustang. This is a project born out of passion, it’s a dream come true, to have the opportunity to “touch” a Mustang and apply my design ideas to it,” said Fisker.

“I love the 60’s American muscle cars. They are more sculptured, with more radical proportions and bold details than European counterparts. My favorite Mustang is the 1968 Shelby GT500 that had this long hood and huge air intakes; it gave me butterflies the first time I saw it. We wanted to recreate that feeling with this car,” he added.
