Ford Eagle Squadron Mustang GT Sold For $420,000

The one-off Eagle Squadron Mustang GT is no longer in Ford’s possession, after the muscle car was sold at auction.

Vaughn Gittin Jr. handed over the keys to its new owner, Brayton Williams, at the Woodward Dream Cruise last weekend, whose bid of $420,000 ended up being the highest during the auction. All proceeds benefited the Experimental Aircraft Association’s youth education programs, which encourage and support the next generation of pilots.

“Our thanks to Brayton for his support of the Experimental Aircraft Association and the next generation of pilots. It’s been a great honor to work with Vaughn and his team to support this great organization, and to honor the pilots of the famed Eagle Squadron”, commented Ford Mustang design chief, Darrell Behmer.

Created by Ford’s Design Team and Vaughn’s RTR Vehicles, the Eagle Squadron Mustang GT greeted the world at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, last month, in the United Kingdom. It pays tribute to the 100th anniversary of the Royal Air Force and the Eagle Squadron volunteer US pilots, who served in WWII before the country officially entered the war.

It features a special camouflage design that mimics the original look of the Eagle Squadron Spitfire aircrafts, a carbon fiber wide-body kit, custom interior with Eagle Squadron logos, adjustable suspension and 20-inch wheels on all four corners.

The piece du resistance is the supercharged 5.0-liter V8 engine that makes 700 hp (710 PS / 522 kW) and 610 lb-ft (826 Nm) of torque, on 93-octane fuel. It works together with a six-speed manual transmission that sends the output to the rear wheels.
