The Gran Torino SS
Is there a more iconic symbol of 20th Century American manufacturing than the Gran Torino? If there is, it’s the 1911 handgun. Four decades ago, both stood at the top of the mountain. The American Muscle Car and the custom 1911. Race car and race gun. The big block and carburetor, the single stack and hardball. Chrome and steel. Times have changed but these symbols endure. Cabot Guns melds these two classics into a single retro-themed handgun with the Gran Torino SS 1911.
Inspired by a one-of-a-kind custom project, the original Cabot Gran Torino 1911 was met by such enthusiasm by our customers that the decision was made to produce this new American classic, The Gran Torino SS . From muzzle to magazine well, this 1911 exudes speed, power and motion.
The Gran Torino SS is constructed completely from stainless steel, with the notable exception of the chatoyant carbon fiber grips. This exclusive material was crafted specifically for use on the Gran Torino SS and, like the metallic paint jobs of the 70s muscle cars, contains flakes of luminescent silver. As the gun moves, the light from the grip panels dazzles.
