2014 Ford Mustang U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds Edition revealed

2014 Ford Mustang U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds Edition
Ford has come up with the next-best thing - Mustang GT U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds Edition. It's designed to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds. Every year, Ford decorates a Mustang for the occasion of the big air show, often with a military theme.

The coupe carries VIN 0001 as the first 2014 Mustang off the line. The design of the modified 2014 Mustang GT 5.0-liter glass-roof coupe exudes a creative connection to the Thunderbirds, with a contemporary flair for the serious collector.

Covered in a signature red, white and blue getup- reminiscent of the Thunderbird F-16 Falcons- the Mustang comes fitted with a custom wide body kit with appropriately large wing by TS Designs, a new glass roof, 22-inch Forgiato wheels and puddle lamps that project a beam in the shape of an airplane round out the exterior modifications.

On the inside, Recaro seats a new instrument cluster, including a revised navigation screen and an aircraft silhouette feature that illuminates the ground when the doors are opened.

Ford Racing package including a supercharger for the 5.0-liter V8, suspension and Brembo brakes bring the performance of the two-seat ‘Stang closer to Air Force spec.
The Mustang U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds Edition is the latest in a series Ford has built to support the program, with previous cars inspired by a variety of historic aircraft including SR-71 Blackbird and "Red Tails" P-51 Mustangs flown by the Tuskegee Airmen. 
 This unique Mustang GT will be sold at auction on Aug. 1, at the 2013 EAA AirVenture. The 2013 edition of the AirVenture festival, which attracts more than 500,000 people each summer, will take place from July 29-Aug. 4 at the Wittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh, Wisconson.
