Every year since 2006 Ford has unveiled a one-of-a-kind Mustang GT for the world's biggest aviation event, the EAA AirVenture event in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. This year's design pays homage to the Blue Angels naval aviation demonstration team.
Set to be auctioned on July 28, all proceeds will benefit the EAA Young Eagles, an organization that has provided free introductory flights to more than 1.6 million young people since 1992.
Inspired by the Blue Angels F-18 Hornet aircraft, the Mustang GT features a unique chrome blue exterior paint finish with "screaming yellow" stripes along with the Blue Angels script and crest. Inside the leather Recaro racing seats display stitched Blue Angels crests. Additional details include cluster graphics, performance gauges, navigation screen images, safety belt fabric, instrument panel appliqués, rear seat-delete and cross-brace, Blue Angels script in the illuminated sill plates and puddle lamps that project jet images when the doors open.
Under the hood, the Blue Angels Mustang is equiped with a Ford Racing supercharged 5.0-liter V8 engine producing 624 horsepower (465 kW / 632 PS). The Ford Racing components also include a handling pack, performance exhaust and racetrack brakes.
