    The Galpin GTR1 (sometimes referred to as the Galpin Ford GTR1) is an American limited production mid-engine sports car developed and built by Galpin Auto Sports. The car was unveiled at Pebble Beach in 2013. Galpin plan to make at least six cars in 2014, with the possibility of another 18 to follow, based on demand.


    In 2013, Galpin Auto Sports utilized the mechanical underpinnings of a Ford GT as basis to build the GTR1. The GTR1 has a 5.4L twin-turbocharged V8, capable of producing 1,024 horsepower (764 kW; 1,038 PS) and 739 lb·ft (1,002 N·m) of torque, which enables the car to accelerate from 0 to 60 in about 3 seconds, and reach an advertised top speed of 225 mph (362 km/h). However, if the GTR1 is fuelled with 100-octane fuel, the power and torque outputs are boosted to respectively 1,197 hp (893 kW; 1,214 PS) and 887 lb·ft (1,203 N·m) of torque. The hand-built, all-aluminum chassis features carbon fiber detailing, and LED headlights, and is approximately 5 in (127 mm) wider than the standard Ford GT. The interior is only slightly altered from the Ford GT, but now has leather upholstery, a machined aluminum instrument cluster, and a McIntosh audio system. The GTR1 uses 20" aluminum wheels, which are fitted with Pirelli P-Zero tires. Carbon fiber disc brakes, with six-piston calipers and Reinforced carbon–carbon rotors are used to stop the car. It is the only car in the world, besides Formula One cars, to have carbon-carbon rotors.
