One-of-a-Kind 2012 Mustang

By Ford Social Member

When you turn 100, it’s pretty much guaranteed Willard Scott will Photoshop your face onto what is seemingly the label of a jar of jam and give a birthday shout-out. But when it’s 100 years of naval aviation we’re talking about? Jam is a no-go. But an extraordinary car created for the occasion? That’ll do.

To pay tribute to the centennial, engineering and design teams at Ford crafted this unique 2012 Ford Mustang, inspired by the U.S. Navy’s Blue Angels naval aviation demonstration team and the F-18 Hornet aircraft it flies. The GT’s exterior features a custom spoiler with vertical tailfins, Screaming Yellow gloss accents and Blue Angels script and crest from the Navy aircraft. Creations n’ Chrome did the chrome blue paint, and we’re sorry to say you can only drool over it for now – it’s unlike anything available on any production vehicle in the world.

Inside, the Mustang has the Blue Angels crest stitched into the leather Recaro racing seats and offset stripes that give a hint of pilot flight suits. There are cluster graphics, performance gauges and instrument panel appliqués, too. Other notables are the Blue Angels script on the illuminated sill plates and puddle lamps that project jet images when the doors open.

The Mustang also has a Ford Racing supercharged 5.0-liter V8 engine that makes a whopping 624 horsepower, plus a Ford Racing handling pack, performance exhaust and racetrack brakes.

You like? Good news then: On July 28, the Blue Angels Mustang will be sold at the Gathering of Eagles charity auction during the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) AirVenture Oshkosh, an event that will take place July 25-31 at Wittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. Ford is the exclusive automotive partner and longtime supporter of EAA. You will need to prequalify to participate in the auction, so click here for more information.

All proceeds from the car donation and sale will benefit the EAA Young Eagles organization, which has provided free introductory flights to more than 1.6 million young people since 1992 while also teaching the value of hard work, personal responsibility and enhanced math and science skills. The Gathering of Eagles annually draws more than 1,000 aviation enthusiasts in support of Young Eagles and other EAA programs that inspire young people to become engineers, aviators, astronauts, scientists and innovators.

The Blue Angels edition joins three other one-of-a-kind Mustangs created by the Ford design and engineering teams for the EAA Young Eagles auction in recent years. Ford vehicles sold at auction during past EAA AirVenture events have collectively raised more than $1.3 million to support Young Eagles.

Ford is truly a win company to support. They have soooooooo very many charities that they support. And them doing this just makes it that much more clear in my mind that I will always be a Ford fan no matter what I drive. Warriors in Pink was definately a favorite of mine. And now this. Thank you Ford Motor company for all that you do in supporting such great causes. The men and women in our Uniformed Services deserve this so much.

As always, FORD surpasses the others in supporting worthwhile causes. It's an honor and a privilege not only to own and drive a FORD but also to work for FORD.

April Stephens 11/29/2011
This is an awesome ride, for a great cause. That's the thing I love about Ford. They are all about the public, they stand above the crowd. I am honored to be a ford fan.,. Thank ya ford for caring what we think.

Absolutely Beautiful !
I grew up with the EAA in my life and attended the Oshkosh event every year with my father.
I can tell you the Young Eagles is a great cause worthy of this car.
Arturo Medina 10/27/2011
Awesome 'stang for a great cause!
Jim Peterson 10/24/2011
A truly beautiful work of art! I'm surprised it's not being called
a 'Mach I', given both that it's for the Blue Angels, and because it's styled along the same lines as the '69 Mach I, the coolest sports car ever built!!
Arli ne 10/14/2011
Wow! What a beauty! Ford, thank you for honoring our Naval Academy. I'm happy I caught your story. Veddy nice!
Chris 10/12/2011
Considering the V6 gets 31 Highway, a Ecoboost Mill would put in the mid to high 30s.
John Rotella 10/02/2011
It's a great car and it's a great story. Only Mustang makes it happen.
I wonder what MPG a 2L Ecoboost engine would get in a lightweight Mustang? Probably 32 - 35 MPG if you can drive it carefully!

Barry Felix 07/20/2011
They should send this to Barrett-Jackson's next event and I bet they would get a lot more money than where it is being planned on being sent.
