Eagle Squadron Mustang GT Celebrates Royal Air Force

Mustang GT

Every year in Wisconsin, aeronautics fans gather together for the Experimental Aircraft Association’s The Gathering fundraiser and auction. While you might not think about Ford having a place in the aircraft industry, it builds a custom vehicle for this celebration each year. This year’s vehicle is an Eagle Squadron Mustang GT that celebrates the 100-year anniversary of the Royal Air Force.

The Eagle Squadron was a group of U.S. volunteer pilots who flew alongside Royal Air Force pilots before the United States officially entered World War II. The Eagle Squadron Mustang is designed to mimic the appearance of the original Eagle Squadron Spitfire planes. It features a camouflaged design along with a wide-body kit, an upper grille with integrated lighting, and a Performance Pack rear spoiler.

Darrell Behmer, Ford Mustang design chief, said, “The Eagle Squadron Mustang GT build with Vaughn and the Ford design team is a great way to honor our heroes and keep the spirit of aviation alive for the next generation of American pilots.”

This will be the 20th year Ford has participated in the Experimental Aircraft Association AirVenture event, and it will be the 10th one-off Mustang it has built for auction. To date, these vehicles have raised more than $3 million toward supporting future generations of pilots.

We at Courtesy Ford of Sauk City are proud of Ford’s dedication to this incredible event.

The Performance Pack Level 2 will be offered on the 2018 Mustang GT.

The Ford Mustang is America’s favorite pony car, providing performance and styling at an affordable price for years. Recently, Ford introduced the Mustang GT Performance Pack Level 2 to improve performance and design for drivers everywhere. If you’re looking for optimal power and bold styling, the new Performance Pack may be right for you.

According to Ford, the Performance Pack Level 2 will be offered on the 2018 Mustang GT. This package includes things like a low and aggressive stance, improved aerodynamics, a front splitter, rear spoiler, and a specially designed suspension. The MagneRide® suspension is made to be ultra-responsive, even at high speeds, providing improved performance on the track as well as the road.

“A passion to create something special is what really drove this project,” said Tom Barnes, Mustang vehicle engineering manager. “And that really showed in the off-the-clock way we went about doing our work.”

The new Performance Pack also has a new manual transmission for a better response, as well as a more thrilling experience behind the wheel. The Performance Pack Level 2 also has the same features as the Level 1, including a tuned chassis, Brembo brakes, and a TORSEN® rear differential, among other things.
