The supercharged version of the Fisker Rocket will deliver nearly 300-hp more than the Mustang GT.

Four months after pulling the wraps off his automotive reincarnation, Danish designer Henrik Fisker is set to deliver the first of his 725-horsepower Rocket Mustangs.

The result of joint venture with California mega-dealer Galpin Motors, the first production version of the Fisker Rocket will make a brief appearance at this weekend’s Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance before being delivered to its new owner.

Word has it that Fisker may also reveal another big project at the weekend classic car show, something he telegraphed during an interview with TheDetroitBureau.com last November at the L.A. Auto Show where the Rocket made its premier.

A project "born out of passion," says Fisker.

Henrik Fisker, perhaps best known for his abortive effort to launch the plug-in hybrid Fisker Karma sports car, is back in the limelight, but turning his talents towards a very different direction.

The Rocket is a 725-hp rework of the all-new pony car Ford Motor Co. Fisker and partner Galpin Auto Sports have not only upgraded the performance of the 2015 Mustang but made a number of exterior modifications that give it both a more sinister and exotic appearance.

“My jaw dropped. I got chills” when first shown the sketches former Aston Martin chief designer Fisker had in mind, said Beau Boeckmann, president of both Galpin Auto Sports and Galpin Motors, the world’s largest Ford dealer. For his part, Fisker explained that the Rocket is “really a program born out of passion.”
