Last week, July 23, 2015, Ford donated the 2015 Ford Mustang Apollo Edition to the charity auction AirVenture, hosted by the Experimental Aircraft Association.
The one of a kind Apollo Edition is upgraded with a supercharger and shifter that brings the horsepower up to 627, over 100 hp higher than the stock version, among several other performance enhancements to make it a track-ready powerhouse. The exterior features a classy black and white paint job with patriotic stars and stripes and orange LED headlights meant to mimic the look of a rocket ship.
Created to honor the Apollo space program and “represent the astonishing innovations in technology and national achievement that was landing the first human on the moon,” the proceeds from the futuristic Apollo Edition Mustang will be donated to youth aviation programs like the Young Eagles. This is the eighth special edition car Ford has donated to charity auctions like AirVenture.
