The GTR1 is said to ride on the bones of a Ford GT and be capable of delivering as much as 1,000 horsepower from a twin-turbocharged version of the Ford GT’s 5.4-liter V-8 engine. It’s a beast of an engine, as this audio clip confirms, and according to Galpin it will power the GTR1 to a top speed in excess of 225 mph.
The creation of the GTR1 isn’t simply a styling exercise. Galpin plans to put the car into production, should demand be sufficient. One option for customers will be the choice between an aluminum or carbon fiber body. From what we can see, that body appears to have some very clean lines and plenty of chrome.
