700 HP Ford Eagle Squadron Mustang GT Debuts At Goodwood

Ford has unveiled the Eagle Squadron Mustang GT at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.

Designed to pay tribute to the Eagle Squadron and the Royal Air Force’s 100th anniversary, the one-off model was jointly developed with professional drifter Vaughn Gittin Jr. His involvement in the project is clearly visible as the car has been equipped with an RTR carbon fiber widebody kit.

The changes don’t stop there as the Mustang has a front spoiler, canards and an RTR illuminated grille. Designers also installed aerodynamic side skirts and a Gurney flap on the existing rear spoiler. Lastly, the car was given an eye-catching camouflage exterior which draws inspiration from the Spitfire fighters used by the Eagle Squadron.

Drivers will find a custom leather interior with Recaro racing seats featuring embroidered Eagle Squadron logos. Other unique touches include a hand-engraved shift knob made from F-35 Lightning parts and a hand-engraved badge featuring aluminum sourced from a Spitfire.

 

 

In terms of performance, the car has a 5.0-liter V8 engine that has been equipped with a Ford Performance supercharger kit. It enables the engine to produce 700 hp (522 kW / 710 PS) and 610 lb-ft (826 Nm) of torque. The engine is connected to a six-speed manual transmission which sends power to the rear wheels through a Ford Performance rear axle.

The upgrades continue further below as the Mustang has the RTR Tactical Performance Suspension Package which includes MagneRide adjustable dampers. The team also installed RTR adjustable sway bars, Ford Performance lowering springs and 20-inch RTR Aero 7 forged wheels wrapped in Nitto NT555 tires.

Following its debut at Goodwood, the car will be auctioned off at an Experimental Aircraft Association fundraiser in Oshkosh, Wisconsin on July 26th. Money raised from the event will fund youth aviation programs and the winning bidder will also receive an all-expense-paid trip to the Woodward Dream Cruise where the Eagle Squadron Mustang GT will be on display.
