A small American company called Galpin Auto Sports has published a pair of computer-generated images that preview its upcoming GTR-1 supercar.
Based on the retro-styled Ford GT that was built between 2005 and 2006, the GTR-1 features an up-to-date design that hints at what the car could look like today if Ford had decided to keep it around.
Buyers will be asked to choose whether they want the car's body made out of aluminum or out of carbon fiber. How much each one will weigh was not released, but the carbon fiber-bodied variant is expected to be lighter than the stock GT.
Under the GTR-1's hood lurks a heavily modified version of the GT's supercharged 5.4-liter V8 engine. Precisely what work has been done to the mill is not known but Galpin promises that it will be good for at least 1,000 horsepower, almost twice what the GT was rated at when new.
Production of the first GTR-1 is already under way and is expected to take a couple of months. Pricing information and availability will be released closer to the car's debut.
