If you haven’t heard of Vaughn GIttin Jr., you probably aren’t big into the drifting scene, we can forgive you for that, but I bet you’ve heard of Ford and the UK Royal Air Force, yes? Ford and Vaughn Gittin Jr. are teaming up to pay homage to American fighter pilots who served in the Royal Air Force during World War II, by creating a Mustang GT in the style of one of those fighter jets from WWII.
Co-created by Ford Performance and GIttin’s RTR Vehicles, the custom, Army-camo colored Mustang will be debuted at Goodwood before heading back over to the States for the Experimental Aircraft Association’s largest fundraiser, The Gathering, which is to be held in Late July in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. Typically this event draws more than a thousand aviation entusiasts.
At this event, the Eagle Squadron Mustang GT will be auctioned off to support the EAA’s youth education fund. While this is not the first year Ford will support the EAA fundraiser, they have in fact been doing it for over 20 years, this is the first time a 700 horsepower, 5.0 liter V8, supercharged Mustang with an RTR carbon fiber kit and Tactical Performance suspension package will be included. Therefore this is one that enthusiasts will not want to miss.
