VIDEO: Galpin Auto Sports Builds a 2019 Mustang GT for Larry Chen

Galpin Auto Sport, also known simply as GAS, have been known to crank out some amazing builds over the years. From Ford GTs, to pro-touring Mustangs to lifted Raptors and even the occasional Brand X, there seems to be no bounds to their talents. Thier latest creation, is one we’ll soon be seeing in person at SEMA Show 2019.

Designed by NASCAR driver Ryan Blaney and professional automotive photographer, Larry Chen, the 2019 Mustang GT was built by Galpin with the help of several popular aftermarket companies. Anderson Composites set Larry up with a carbon fiber hood and truck lid, which will shave a few pounds of off the car’s curb weight.

Fifteen52 wheels now sit on each corner, with Wilwood 6-piston calipers tucked neatly behind them for a combination of improved looks, handling and braking. The handling is bumped up a few notches as well, with the help of Roush fully-adjustable suspension components, including a set of coil-overs. Of course improved handling and braking properties will be needed, now that the power has been dialed up to over 700 ponies to the crank.

This is possible with a Roush supercharger, air intake and tuning calibration, as well as a MagnaFlow catback exhaust system — father aiding the power output, as well as providing a much more intriguing soundtrack. After all, what’s the point of having a Coyote-power ‘Stang if you can’t even hear it?

On the inside, a pair of NRG racing seats, steering wheel and roll bar have been mounted into place, for a combination of increased safety and rigidity, as well improved support. The wrap is a callout to the Ford GT race cars of yesteryear, and the whole Mustang will be eventually given away through the Here We Roar Sweepstakes.

We caught wind of this car from our friends at GTN, and we look forward to seeing this thing in Vegas!
