2013 Ford Mustang GT ‘Red Tail’ Special: Inspired by WWII P-51 Mustang Fighter Aircraft
The Blue Oval’s engineering and design teams have developed a one-of-a-kind “Red Tails” edition of the 2013 Ford Mustang GT Coupe, the styling of which was inspired by World War II squadron of African American P-51 Mustang fighter airplanes.
The one-off creation will go under the hammer at the Gathering of Eagles charity auction on July 26 during the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) AirVenture Oshkosh 2012.
Ford said all proceeds will donated to the EAA Young Eagles program, which has provided free introductory flights to more than 1.6 million young participants since 1992.
The “Red Tails” 2013 Mustang GT is finished in unique polished aluminum nonproduction paint, accented with Race Red and School Bus Yellow, a theme which is consistent with the P-51 fighter plane’s red tail cues and the logos and markings of the United States Army Air Corps, 332nd Fighter Group and Squadrons.
The car rides on a black set of 20-inch alloy wheels with a silver rim wrapped in extra chunky rubber, while other highlights include the quad side exhaust pipes (in addition to the quad tailpipes from SVT at the back), the rear wing and a rear diffuser.
Inside, unique details include a modified navigation screen, instrument cluster, a pair Recaro seats with an embroidered “Red Tails” logo, the removal of the rear seat bench, floor mats embroidered with the 332nd Fighter Group moniker, and illuminated sill plates and puddle lamps that project “Red Tails” imagery when the doors open.
Under the sheetmetal, the Blue Oval upgraded the V8 with a Ford Racing 2.3-liter twin-screw Whipple supercharger, while also adding a handling pack and GT500 Brembo brakes.
“With this year’s beautiful ‘Red Tails’ edition Mustang, we’ve captured the recognizable symbols in honor of their important role in our history, and paired it with the innovation our Ford design and engineering teams build into all of our products,” said Edsel B. Ford II, the great-grandson of Henry Ford and member of the FoMoCo board.
2015 Ford Mustang GT Coupé Design Concept by Josh Byrnes
To give a speculative insight on how the next Mustang might look, I’ve created a render that incorporates Ford’s latest design language from current production and concept models.
The word on the street is that the new pony car will borrow heavily from last year’s Evos concept, so bearing this in mind, I have softened some of lines as well as making them more expressive and sleeker. For example, the scollops in the doors are deeper and rear haunches are more curvaceous to exude a subtle hint of the GT40.
The front keeps that classic Mustang look combined with an exaggerated border that leads down from the headlights and onto the lower bumper. Not forgetting the grille, it gains an imposing variation of the staple trapezoidal outline, now found on most of Ford’s current passenger car lineup.
So this is just one designer’s crystal ball gaze. Is it far too evolutionary or just on the mark, what do you think?
One thing is for sure; whatever Ford lets out of its stables next will have to be good enough to take on the world.
Back in 2006, Joey, a 14-year old teenager at the time, became an instant internet and media sensation when a friend filmed him crashing his father’s brand new Ford Mustang GT with the optional Eleanor package.
The short clip showed Joey getting into the driver’s seat of the manual-gearbox Mustang GT V8, which still had the factory stickers on the window, and then all of a sudden we saw Ford’s pony car accelerating right into the garage wall.
The original video has since garnered close to 3.7 million views on Youtube. Now, it’s time for Joey to get his so-called “Web Redemption” in the next episode of Tosh.0 that will air on Tuesday, February 21, on Comedy Central.
For those of you not familiar with Daniel Tosh’s show, the “Web Redemption” segment helps redeem viral video “stars” like Joey by inviting them to show to have them explain how it all went down while also recreating the said scene in an equally humorous manner.
While based on the 2012 model, the new Mustang has received some minor styling updates as well improvements beneath the skin.
Ford says that the design tweaks were meant to make the new Mustang look more aggressive. On the outside, these include a more prominent grille for all models, a new front splitter, a functional hood air extractors on the GT, body-colored rocker panels, a new design for the tail lamps and a glossy rear panel sporting the Mustang emblem.
Furthermore, there new standard headlights utilize HID (high-intensity discharge) technology, while LED (light-emitting diodes) are also used both in the headlamps with two individual units, and in the rear, where three ropes form the iconic three-bar design.
“We are delivering a more distinctive and emotional design presence that celebrates the total performance of Mustang”, said Darrell Behmer, Mustang chief designer. “This latest Mustang design is very respectful of its heritage while continuing to look forward with a more powerful and modern look.”
