Ford’s beloved GT – a mid-engine two-seater has recently been resurrected by Galpin Auto Sports for a showcase at this year’s Quail Motorsports Gathering held in Monterey, California. Galpin tapped Doug Breuninger to transform the 2005 sports car into the above sleek and powerful supercar.
Besides the slick carbon fiber/aluminum body constructed, the car is also packed with a massive twin-turbocharged
