Going to the highest bidder this year at the Young Eagles Auction will be this one-of-a-kind Blue Angels 2011 Ford Mustang GT. For the past four years, Ford Motor Company has worked in collaboration with the EAA Young Eagles Program to build a one-of-one aviation-themed vehicle for auction. This year, they’ll be honoring the Centennial of Naval Aviation by drawing inspiration from the Blue Angels for their Mustang GT.
Famous for their in-air antics, the Blue Angels aviation demonstration team clearly had heavy influences on this unique Mustang. The exterior features a unique blue-chrome finish, accented by yellow gloss accents and the infamous Blue Angels logo and crest scripted across the side. Under the hood is a 5.0L V8 supercharged powerplant that pushes out 500-hp. In addition, Ford also outfitted the Mustang with their handling package, performance exhaust, racetrack brake components and a fancy set of mesh wheels.
Check out a short video highlighting the Mustang after the break.
