What Is the Galpin Fisker Rocket Mustang?Last Updated August 8, 2023 | Andrew Boyle
With almost every corner of the car looking far from your run-of-the-mill stock Mustang GT, the Galpin Fisker Rocket Edition Mustang is one sinister looking ride. Henrik Fisker sought out to completely reimagine the new S550 Mustang, and that he did. Starting at the various carbon fiber body panels and accessories, custom interior, old-school-style ducktail spoiler, aggressive hood scoops, and a front clip that says “I’m going to eat you,” followed up with a 2.9L Whipple supercharger to back it all up at 630 horsepower to the rear wheels. Wow.
Defining Features Of The Galpin Fisker Rocket
To put it in perspective, the 2013-2014 Shelby GT500 made 662 horsepower at the crank with a 5.8L supercharged V8. This 2.9L Whipple-supercharged 5.0L Coyote engine is putting roughly 630 horsepower to the wheels. If you factor in the 15% for drivetrain loss, you’re looking at over 700 horsepower at the crank. If it was ever a question whether or not the Galpin Fisker Rocket had the power to back up those head-turning design cues, the answer is yes.
Aside from the powerhouse under the hood, other features include blacked-out wheels, custom powder coated Brembo brakes, Bassani exhaust, various carbon fiber appliques and a beautifully peanut-butter-color leather-wrapped interior from the seats to the center console. There are a few caveats to the Galpin Fisker such as the stock clutch that still remains even after the car is delivered to its new customer. Under regular driving conditions, it should be fine, but if the new owner is serious about performance then a McLeod Twin-Disc RXT clutch kit should be on the list to back that Whipple-fed Coyote up.
