2014 L.A. Auto Show: Highlights

Galpin-Fisker RocketYes, clearly this is a Mustang, but certainly not your typical Mustang. This powerful-looking pony car was the brainchild of Beau Boeckmann (president and COO of Galpin Ford, the largest Ford dealership in the country) and Henrik Fisker (designer of many iconic vehicles, including the beautiful Aston Martin DB9). This low-volume carbon fiber-bodied Mustang is called the Rocket.
As expected, the Rocket isn’t just a looker — there’s real muscle under that sculpted carbon-fiber hood in the form of a 725-horsepower V8 engine (which explains the hood graphic). Production of the Rocket will begin in December with first deliveries expected to take place in spring of 2015.
