     The first thing that comes to mind on seeing this GTR1 supercar crafted by American company,Galpin Auto Sports will be its glaring semblance with the well known retro-styled Ford GT which was built by Ford in (late) 2003 to go on sale in 2004;only a total of  4,038 of these cars were made.

    Well today we have a more robust version of the Ford GT most reckon with and surprisingly, not made by the Chinese; as it features a top notch make-up which comes with well machined aluminum instrument cluster, Scottish leather seats upholstery, premium McIntosh sound system and a whopping 1,024 horsepower engine (739 lb-ft. Torque).

    To further justify the $1million-plus price tag, buyers have the option of either an aluminum or  carbon fiber body, as well as the colour of the headliner and stitching on the seats. Other noteworthy features include; LED-infused headlights, a carbon fiber front lip spoiler and 20-inch aluminum wheels with Pirelli P Zero Rosso tires.

    Its twin-turbo 5.4-liter V8 engine is claimed to be capable of accelerating from 0-60 mph in approximately 3seconds with top speed in excess of 225 mph (362 km/h).  For such speeds comes equipped a Brembo aircraft-inspired carbon-carbon brake rotors gripped by six-piston callipers.
    These hand-built cars will be highly limited with just 24 cars slated to be built by Galpin Auto Sports.
