Here is another X1 that we have modified to a whole new level. This one belongs to a non forum member and we believe this is the last X1 produced by the “G” company. Within a few weeks of taking delivery from having the top removed this one was sent to us for an inspection and a list of mods. He was daring enough to give us some freedom with the build as long as the whole car gave off a “classy” appearance. The carbon fiber splitter, rockers, and rear diffuser were done by the "G" company but we also have the ability to produce these too. Enjoy the pics and the list of mods we performed. Lastly this one put out 860rwhp @20 psi on 93 octane.

Vinyl gloss black center stripes (can be removed). Overlayed on top of the factory silver stripes.

He really wanted to get rid the “nasty looking” (his words) caps that were on the door tops.
Remove carbon fiber door caps, fabricate, fit and weld new pieces to top of both doors,
Prep and paint modified doors including re clearing the entire door

Dang that looks awesome!!! Especially those clam shell vents and fuel door:biggrin I also think that a set of upper seat inserts would top off the build :thumbsup

Love the chrome. Not really into the "murdered out" or matte finish....must be a generation thing. Excellent job as usual.

It's nice to see another X1 brought to completion. I'm sure it is now 1,000 times better than when it arrived at the GT Guys shop!

It appears to be missing a Halon Fire Suppressant System in the rear.

I'm just sayin'.

The craftmanship is awesome, but a little too bling bling for my taste.

If the Batmobile and the Mach 5 hooked up, this would be the result. Love it.

Hey Rich and Dennis,

Have you built your own GTX1 from a stock GT without the "G" company? That seems like it would be an automatic winner.
