2016 Ford Mustang Rocket by Henrik Fisker is the new creation of one of the most popular tuning stores in United States Henrik Fisker and Galpin Autos.This vehicle was developed by Fissker and Beau Boeckmann, the president of Galpin Autos.
They started working on this model in August 2014, after Pebble Beach Concours D’Elegance.Comparing to the regular Ford Mustang this model comes with different new front end, hood and wider fenders, which are all made out of carbon-fiber, so they overall weight of the vehicle is decreased which leads to better fuel efficiency and higher speed this model is able to achieve.
Design – Exterior and Interior
Custom exterior design that was developed by Henrik Fisker comes with much more slopped hood than the regular Ford Mustang and different grille that now comes in hexagonal shape with some nice looking accent lighting. It also comes with twin hood scoops which are taken from 1968 Shelby GT500, which is the favorite vehicle of the other part of this designing team, Beau Boeckmann himself.
Profile comes with a lot of sculpted parts, fender flairs that came out much wider than in the regular model and dual inlets at the rear hanches. It also comes with much wider 21 inch alloy wheels that are made for achieving some extra performance, and 15 inch Brembo brakes.
Interior changes are not that drastic as the ones we saw in the exterior. 2016 Ford Mustang Rocket by Henrik Fisker and Beau Boeckmann comes with shinny red leather stitched to the central console and stack, which is also used for seat upholstery. Interior comes with little bit more carbon-fiber parts in form of accents stitched to doors and integrated into dash board. Overall interior design doesn’t defer much from the original Ford Mustang interior, but brings up a nice refreshment in form of red leather and makes this model much more interesting.
The Engine and Performance
Now this is the most important segment in this review. Engine for this vehicle was produced from one of the most powerful and beasty engines from Ford range, we are talking about 5,0 liter Coyotte V8, which is able to produce 435 horsepower. This engine is improved with adding Whipple supercharger that increased this model’s output to unbelieving high 725 horsepower. Both Ford an Henrik Fisker were very secretive about all other performance information so we are not really sure about maximum speed, acceleration or torque figures of this powerful vehicle.
Estimated max speed is about 185 mph, and, this Mustang reaches 60 mph for less than 3.5 seconds. One of strengths is 6-speed manual transmission. As you can see, these features makes Mustang by Rocket one of the most powerful cars.
