Ford is once again teaming up with EAA AirVenture to build a special Mustang.

Starting with a 2015 Mustang, the American automaker will draw inspiration from the Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II, outfitting the custom car with a glossy and matte titanium paint scheme accented by blue and yellow graphics. Giving the 2015 Mustang a more aggressive stance will be a carbon fiber front splitter and rear diffuser. Inside, expect to see a set of Recaro racing seats and various F-35 Lightning II design elements.

The one-off vehicle will be auctioned off at the Gathering of Eagles charity event at EAA AirVenture and the proceeds will be donated to the EAA Young Eagles program. The non-profit organization has provided free flights to nearly two-million people since 1992, helping create a new generation of aviation enthusiasts and innovators.
