Galpin Auto Sports (GAS) recently released a teaser image of The Rocket, a Mustang-based custom car, on their official Facebook page. It will be a collaboration between Henrik Fisker and Galpin Auto Sports that will be shown at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show on November 20, 2014.

Details about the car are still scarce but according to GAS, it will be a carbon fiber bodied 2015 Ford Mustang. From the image itself, the rear section of the car has a trunk lid spoiler and is complemented by a massive wheel arch. Its rear quarter quarter window has been filled-in and it has large wheels and tires.

Henrik Fisker was the co-founder of Fisker Automotive which was his attempt in making a car brand that focused on plug-in hybrid vehicles. The company only managed to release one production car in 2011, the Karma before Fisker Automotive filed for bankruptcy in November 2013. The company was then sold to the Wanxiang Group in February 2014.
