Red Tails Edition Mustang GT


Red Tails Edition Mustang GT is about the coolest version of the muscle car you can get. It is designed to pay homage, and of course look like, a world war 2 P-51 Mustang fighter! SAdly it’s just a one-off, planned to be auctioned off.

This one-of-a-kind car is secured under VIN 00051 in honor of the P-51 Mustang planes flown by the Tuskegee Airmen. The design of the modified 2013 Mustang GT 5.0-liter glass-roof coupe will unify the creative connection of the World War II fighters with a contemporary flair for the serious collect. This car will be sold at the Gathering of Eagles charity auction July 26 during the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) AirVenture Oshkosh 2012 – the World’s Greatest Aviation Celebration. All proceeds from the car donation and sale will benefit the EAA Young Eagles program.

Projected price has not been announced yet.
