Ford’s latest one-off Mustang was just revealed at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh ahead of its auction crossing.
Inspired by the Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II, the car is a modified version of the 2015 Mustang and one of the first versions of that car slated to be released to the public. It will be auctioned off during the Gathering of Eagles event on July 31 to benefit the EAA Young Eagles program. The organization gives free airplane rides to kids from ages eight to 17.
This is the latest in a series of customized Mustangs that Ford donated to the event to serve as a fundraiser. It is decorated with colors that are meant to make it look like an F-35 Lightning II while other modifications include a big front splitter, rear diffuser and Recaro bucket seats. There’s a large rear spoiler, custom paint and tweaks to the interior. So far, it doesn’t sound like the car has any major performance modifications.
