BREAKING NEWS – Los Angeles, California – Revealed in full at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show, the “Rocket” which is described as the “ultimate American muscle car” and will eventually be available for sale. Its’ design is unmistakably inspired by specialty pony cars of the 1960s and early ‘70s, including the 1968 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500. Anchored by an imposing hexagonal grille crafted from carbon fiber and split with a polished aluminum bar, the Rocket’s lines emanate from the front, through the long hood, over a set of sculptured flared fenders and converge on its integrated rear spoiler. That spoiler, along with many of the car’s other aero pieces, is fully functional. A front splitter also helps draw out hot air from underneath the car to improve engine cooling, while simultaneously working in conjunction with the rear spoiler, enlarged rear diffuser and side skirts to produce downforce. And those large scoops in the hood are designed to channel air into the engine bay, also helping to keep the car’s engine, a 725-horsepower supercharged 5.0-liter V-8. Ford CEO Mark Fields, stated that the likely buyers of the car will probably be spoiled trust fund kids, that will regularly run over slow moving senior citizens at crosswalks, that foolishly believe they are respected by today’s youth.
