Special Edition Mustang GT Coming To Goodwood With 700 HP

This year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed will feature a special edition Ford Mustang GT, designed to pay tribute to U.S. fighter pilots who served in the RAF during World War II.

The car is inspired by the RAF Eagle Squadrons that actually flew over the fields of Goodwood some 80 years ago. On this occasion, its pilot will be world champion drifter Vaughn Gittin Jr, who’s going to drive it up the hill on July 12.

As a product of Ford Performance and Gittin’s RTR Vehicles, this Mustang boasts a 700 HP 5.0-liter V8 engine, aided by a supercharger, a carbon fiber wide-body kit (by RTR) and a Tactical Performance suspension package.

Following its debut at Goodwood, the car will then make its way to the Experimental Aircraft Association’s largest fundraiser, The Gathering, on July 26, where it will be auctioned off.

“We are honored to have the Eagle Squadron Mustang GT making its debut at Goodwood. The car was inspired by the American volunteer pilots who fought with the RAF in World War II, while Goodwood’s RAF Westhampnett hosted US Airforce squadrons too, so it is completely appropriate to have the car here in this, our Silver Jubilee year, while the RAF celebrates its centenary,” stated the Duke of Richmond and Gordon, Goodwood Festival of Speed founder.

As for this teaser image, while taken from above (fitting), it shows the car’s ultra-wide fenders (especially at the rear), RAF livery and a longtail-style rear spoiler.
