Galpin Auto Sports Shows off Supercar Project

There are a number of boutique automotive makers around the world to turn out small numbers of supremely expensive high-performance automobiles. A company from California called Galpin Auto Sports has announced plans for its own supercar project called the GTR-1. The car looks like a cross between a Ferrari and the Shelby Cobra to my eyes.

The announcement was made recently during the Los Angeles auto show and the renderings for the project looks very interesting. The car is said to be designed in the spirit of Carol Shelby. The car will have a drivetrain and suspension modifications tailored to customer specifications along with an engine producing over 1000 hp.

The car will be offered with a choice of bodies including aluminum or carbon fiber. Full specifications and details on the car are unavailable at this time. Word is that the GTR-1 will debut in early 2013. I would expect this to be one the cars you can't afford if you have to ask how much it costs.
