Galpin Auto Sports (GAS) was founded in 1946 by founder Frank Galpin. The GAS is specialized in remodeling and customizing regular vehicles for their drivers who want special parts and performance. They are well known from the “Pimp My Ride” tv show aired on MTV and hosted by Xzibit. The project on which they are worked is a 2018 Ford Galpin GTR1 firs introduced in 2013 at LA Auto Show Pebble Beach. This car is basically a regular Ford GT heavily customized. In 2014 they built only six GTR1 vehicles but more 18 units are flowing which is based on demand.
The guys from Galpin did an amazing job in terms of the exterior design, features and performance. They take the Ford’s factory vehicle, the GT and took the the mechanical underpinnings of it. The whole chassis is built by hand and they also incorporated carbon fiber detailing in it. The GTR1 is wider from the standard GT with approximately 5-inch (or 127 mm). On the front end it looks like the regular GT but it uses LED headlamps instead. It sits on 20-inch aluminum wheels, which are wrapped with Pirelli P-Zero tires, while the braking is done with reinforced carbon–carbon rotors, six-piston calipers and carbon fiber discs.
When we talk about the interior design of the new 2018 Galpin GTR1 we can see that it is basically the interior of the regular Ford GT but it is altered heavily to have more elegant and luxurious look. The upholstery inside is done in full premium blue colored leather. Also the instrument cluster is altered and replaced with machined aluminum one with fighter yet inspired switches. It also have a premium sound McIntosh audio system.
