teaser-for-2013-galpin-ford-gtr1_100436788_l

Galpin Auto Sports has built a new supercar modeled after the Ford GT and will be unveiling it tomorrow at The Quail: A Motorsports Gathering, one of the satellite events of the 2013 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance taking place this weekend in Monterey, California. We already have a good idea as to what the new supercar, labeled the Galpin Ford GTR1, will look like thanks to previous renderings but now Galpin has posted up a few teaser shots of the real thing on its Facebook page.

The GTR1 is said to ride on the bones of a Ford GT and be capable of delivering as much as 1,000 horsepower from a twin-turbocharged version of the Ford GT’s 5.4-liter V-8 engine. It’s a beast of an engine, as this audio clip confirms, and according to Galpin it will power the GTR1 to a top speed in excess of 225 mph.
