Galpin Auto Sports has started developing a Ford GT-inspired supercar known as the GTR-1.

Galpin Auto Sports (GAS) has started developing a Ford GT-inspired supercar known as the GTR-1.

Very few details are available at the moment, but we do know that it will be offered with more than 1,000 hp (746 kW) and with a choice of either a carbon fiber or aluminum body. It will be longer than the Ford GT and each unit will have an interior cabin customized per client's request.

Galpin Auto Sports is a well-known dealer of Ford products and back in the 60s it was the first dealer to sell Shelby Cobra models. They have a long history of providing various components for just about all types of Mustangs, but now they have decided to take it to a whole new level and build their own Ford GT.

More details should arrive early next year.
