PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. -- Luxury designer Henrik Fisker has created a convertible variation of the Ford GT Mustang to be sold by Galpin Auto Sports of Los Angeles.
The Galpin Rocket Speedster Concept is envisioned as a limited-production convertible two-seater version of the Rocket coupe that Galpin and Fisker unveiled at the Los Angeles auto show last November.
Unwrapping the convertible during Pebble Beach’s weekend festival of high-end brands and rare collectibles, Fisker said the Speedster uses a light carbon-fiber body that channels air under the hood through two sculpted intakes to cool its powerful engine.
The Speedster would use a 725-hp Ford V-8 package, Fisker said, speaking with Beau Boeckmann, president of Galpin Auto Sports.
The drop-top reveals a more pronounced rear deck in place of the usual Mustang back seats.
Fisker and Boeckmann did not estimate when the Speedster might be offered for sale, or what its price would be.
