Americans from Ford motor have developed a unique model, the 2014 Ford Mustang GT U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds Edition which has been sold for $398.000 at the gathering of Eagles charity auction, last week. The winner was James Slattery from San Diego. Everything starts with the car donation and sale benefit of the EAA Young Eagles program. This has actually provided free introductory flights to more than 1.6 million young people since 1992.

The program has helped inspire and motivate the next generation of aviators, leaders and even innovators. The new edition now joins another five unique Mustang models that have been developed by the Ford Design and engineering teams for the same auction in the last few years. So far, Ford vehicles have sold models and raised more than $2.5 million to support Young Eagles. So that you know, the American manufacturer is the exclusive automotive sponsor of EAA AirVenture Oshkosh. The specialists have tried to celebrate the capabilities Ford has with the new Mustang Thunderbirds Edition that has them all. This is what a member of the Ford board of directors, Edsel B. Ford II declared.

The model also commemorates the 60th anniversary of the US Air Force Thunderbirds and here we are talking about the VIN 0001. The modified design of the 2014 GT 5.0-liter glass-roof coupe reminds everyone of the Thunderbirds. The new model also comes with wide body modifications and handcrafted and painted belly pan. To transfer the output to the road, the engineers have offered 22-inch wheels. Additional elements include unique sill plates and puddle lamps that project the aircraft silhouette when the doors open. Thanks to the Ford Racing supercharger, suspension handling pack and Brembo brakes, the new 2014 Thunderbirds Edition exudes performance, power and class.
