If you’re a fan of the Ford Mustang you’re going to love this! Ford Performance and drifting champion, Vaughn Gittin Jr. have collaborated to create a totally unique Eagle Squadron Mustang GT. Created in commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the Royal Air Force, this exciting one-off Mustang will be showcased at the Experimental Aircraft Association’s The Gathering fundraiser and auction in July.
The car’s design is inspired by the Eagle Squadron – a group of U.S. volunteer pilots who flew combat missions alongside the Royal Air Force from British airfields prior to the States entering WWII – and will be on display at the Ford booth for the weekend’s event. The car showcases support of young pilots through the auction and also reflects Ford’s aviation history tracing back to WWII. All the proceeds will be donated to the Experimental Aircraft Association’s youth education programs which aim to encourage younger generations of pilots – an organisation Ford has worked with for years, helping raise more than $3 million.
The car is unmissable and unmistakably aggressive. Painted in a camo design, to match the original Eagle Squadron aircraft, the Mustang features Gittin Jr.’s RTR Mustang carbon wide-body kit and includes a Gurney lip added to the Performance Pack rear spoiler. With a 5.0 litre V8 engine churning out 700 horsepower and a Tremec 6-speed manual transmission system with a Ford Performance short shifter, this car is a thing of absolute beauty!
