2014 Ford Mustang GT U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds Edition
Ford US has announced the one-off Mustang GT U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds Edition. The special edition sports car will be auctioned at the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) AirVenture show in Oshkosh, Wisconsin on August 1st.
2014 Ford Mustang GT Thunderbirds Edition comes with a full wide body kit including new front and rear bumpers, a pair of side skirts and extended wheel arches to fit a set of enormous 22" Forgiato wheels finished in belly pan that recalls the F-16 Thunderbird. The exterior also features three-colour paint job including red, white and blue just like the F-16 Falcons.
The interior boasts a pair of Recaro sports seats, unique sill plates and a new instrument cluster. There is also a new SAT NAV screen and puddle lamps that project an aircraft silhouette on the ground when the doors opened.
The performance is boosted by a new supercharger, a sport suspension and a big Brembo brake system.
The U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds Edition joins five other one-of-a-kind Mustangs created by the Ford design and engineering teams for the EAA Young Eagles auction in recent years, each generating excitement among aviation and automotive enthusiasts alike. Ford vehicles sold at auction during past EAA AirVenture events have collectively raised nearly $1.9 million to support Young Eagles.
