Carroll Shelby and Jack Roush have teamed up to create a unique Mustang which will be auctioned off in support of the EAA's (Experimental Aircraft Association) Young Eagles program.

Dubbed the SR-71 (S for Shelby / R for Roush), the special edition Mustang was inspired by the legendary Lockheed Martin SR-71 Blackbird.

While it won't allow you to take spy photos from 80,000 ft (24,000 m), the SR-71 Mustang features a 5.0-lite Ti-VCT V8 engine with a 2.3-liter Whipple Twin Screw Supercharger and a Roush intake. Other performance goodies include the Handling Pack, a Ford Racing exhaust system, and a roll cage.

In terms of styling, the car features a matte grey paint job, unique graphics, a glass roof, and custom wheels (19-inch front / 20-inch rear).

Inside, the cabin boasts Recaro race seats (with embroidered signatures of Jack Roush and Carroll Shelby), a revised steering wheel, a Ford Racing instrument cluster, a modified navigation system, special floor mats, and unique badging. Furthermore, the rear seat is removed to "accentuate (the) cockpit environment."

The SR-71 Mustang will be built by Roush and auctioned off on July 29th.
