The special-editon ‘Stang packs 522kW
If you thought the incoming Bullitt special edition was the very tip of the Mustang spear, then think again.
Meet the Eagle Squadron Mustang GT; a 522KW beast built to pay tribute to the American fighter pilots who flew with the RAF in World War II. Hence the epic paintwork, inspired by the RAF Eagle Squadrons of the time.
A joint effort from Ford Performance and drift-tuning firm RTR Vehicles, the Eagle Squadron will appear at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, where world champion drifter Vaughn Gittin Jr will attempt to manhandle it up the infamous hillclimb.
Details are a little scarce, but we do know that under the bonnet lives the GT’s 5.0-litre V8, only now with an added Ford Performance supercharger that boosts power to around 700bhp (522kW). There’s a new carbonfibre body kit and uprated “Tactical Performance” suspension components, too.
The bad news? This brutal ‘Stang is a genuine one-off, so we won’t be seeing one land in dealers anytime soon.
