American carmaker Ford had developed a new edition of the 2013 Ford Mustang GT Coupe, the Red Tails edition. The new styling was inspired by the squadron of African American P-51 Mustang fighter airplanes used in the World War II. Now, the first development will be modified at the Gathering of Eagles charity auction this month on the 26th during the Experimental Aircraft Association AirVenture Oshkosh 2012. Apparently the American carmaker will donate all proceeds to the EAA Young Eagles program. They have offered introductory flights to over 1.6 million young participants ever since 1992, free of charge.
The new Red Tails 2013 Mustang GT is covered in a special polished aluminum nonproduction paint, with the logos and markings of the United States Army Air Corps, Squadroms and 332nd Fighter Group, but also accented with Race Red and School Bus Yellow. This theme is consistent with red tail cues of the P-51 fighter planes. All the output is being sent to the road through 20-inch alloy wheels. Other distinctive elements include the quad side exhaust pipes, the rear diffuser and also the rear wing. For the interior, Ford offered a modified navigation screen, Recaro seats with the Red Tails logo, instrument cluster, floor mats, illuminated sill plates and puddle lamps and removed the rear seat bench. The Red Tails 2013 Mustang GT is powered by a 2.3-liter V8 twin-screw Whipple supercharger and it also features a handling pack and GT500 Brembo brakes to handle the output.
This model is not the only one developed by the Ford design and engineering teams for the EAA Young Auction over the last few years. In this category we also have the 2008 Mustang AV8R, the 2009 AV-X10, the 2010 SR-71 Blackbird Mustang and the 2011 Blue Angels Mustang.
