Ford will be unveiling a special edition Ford Mustang GT 5.0 at the 2018 Goodwood Festival of Speed. The special edition model pays tribute to American fighter pilots who served in the Royal Air Force (RAF) during World War II and were based near Goodwood.
Ford has confirmed that this one-of-a-kind model, named Eagle Squadron Mustang GT was co-developed by Ford Performance and Gittin’s RTR Vehicles – the authorised Ford Mustang tuning company. The duo has slapped on a Ford Performance supercharger onto the 5.0-litre V8 engine to push out a whopping 710 hp (700 bhp) that are deployed onto the rear wheels, 230 hp more than the Mustang Bullitt!
Other unique bits include RTR carbon fibre wide-body kit and Tactical Performance suspension package to complement the immense power jump. The supercharged Mustang will carve its way up the Goodwood hill climb by world champion drifter Vaughn Gittin Jr. before being on display throughout the rest of the festival.
