For the fourth year in a row, Ford has created a one of a kind Mustang for a benefit auction at the EAA AirVenture in Oshkosh, Wisconsin at the end of July. This year’s car is a Blue Angels themed 2012 Mustang GT, which was created to mark the 100th anniversary of naval aviation and was inspired by the acclaimed naval aviation demonstration team.
On the exterior, the car features a unique blue chrome finish with a yellow gloss accent and “Blue Angels” scripted across the door. The Blue Angels crest appears both inside and out, on the fender and stitched into the seats. Under the hood, this Mustang has a supercharged 500 hp 5.0 V8, a Ford Racing handling package, performance exhaust, and racetrack brake components.
Last year, together with Carroll Shelby and Jack Roush, Ford created the SR-71 “Blackbird” Mustang. Previous years featured the Mustang AV8R, with cues from the F-22 “Raptor,” and the AV-X10 “Dearborn Doll” Mustang, created in honor of World War II aircraft.
The car will be on display inside the Ford Hangar during the EAA AirVenture event and will be auctioned off during the Young Eagles Auction on Thursday, July 28. If you want to get your bid in and participate, contact Matt Miller in the EAA Development Office at 800-236-1025 or via e-mail by Monday, July 25 to pre-qualify. Note, though, that past cars have sold for as much as $500,000–so have that bank account stocked!
