Ford will bring to the Festival of Speed in Goodwood a special version of the Ford Mustang, issued in honor of the squadron “Eagle” of the Royal Air Force of Great Britain. During the Second World War, pilots for three squadrons were recruited from American volunteers.
Maslar is built in a single copy. Work on it was conducted jointly by the sports division of Ford Performance and tuning studio RTR Vehicles. Under the hood of the Mustang, a five-liter compressor eight-cylinder is installed, the output of which is increased to 710 horsepower.
In addition to engine improvements, the sports car received a wide carbon fiber body kit from RTR Vehicles and an underestimated adjustable Tactical Performance suspension. The livery of the car is made in the style of the coloring of fighters of the World War II.
After the festival, the car will be sent to the USA and auctioned. The proceeds from the sale will be donated to the Experimental Aircraft Association, an international organization that will channel them to various youth training programs.
During the ascent to the hill in Goodwood, the car will be driven by a drifter Vaughn Gittin, Jr. During the arrival on the passenger seat will be a veteran of the Royal Air Force of Great Britain Paul Miller, whose father served in the squadron “Eagle” in 1941-1942.
In addition, Goodwood will bring the legendary Ford Mustang, nicknamed Bullitt, which was run in the film of the same name, Steve McQueen. In honor of the 50th anniversary of the painting, the producer has prepared a special version of the modern Mustang. It debuted at the January Auto Show in Detroit. The two-door has got the engine accelerated to 482 forces, components from the charged coupe Shelby GT350 and a unique body color.
