The Ford Eagle Squadron Mustang GT was specially created to commemorate the 100-year anniversary of the Royal Air Force, and this impressive aero-inspired muscle car debuted for auction on July 26. Featured within the Goodwood Festival at a gathering for the Experimental Aircraft Association’s youth education programs, the Eagle Squadron Mustang GT is truly impressive.
The Royal Air Force is the official aerial warfare branch of the UK military. Started at the end of WWI, the RAF is perhaps best known for airplanes like the Hurricane and Spitfire, engineering marvels even by today’s standards.
According to Ford, the Eagle Squadron Mustang GT is one-of-a-kind, featuring a specially built, supercharged engine emitting 700 horsepower. The car also has an RTR wide-body kit, a tuned suspension, and distinct Spitfire aircraft materials.
“The Eagle Squadron Mustang GT build with Vaughn and the Ford design team is a great way to honor our heroes and keep the spirit of aviation alive for the next generation of American pilots,” said Darrell Behmer, Ford Mustang design chief.
The Experimental Aircraft Association, which is based in Wisconsin, will receive proceeds from the Mustang auction, which will use the money for special youth education aviation programs.
