As a tribute to the American fighter pilots who served in the Royal Air Force during the Second World War, Ford and RTR Vehicles created the one-off Eagle Squadron Mustang GT. Like the RTR we saw last year, this one will also have 700 supercharged horsepower.

The Eagle Squadron, in addition to having a badass name, will wear a coat of camouflage paint so you will have to keep careful track of it or else you might loose sight of it.

The other visual cues mirror those of the planes used during the war that flew over Goodwood. Itís named after the three Eagle Squadrons, a group of American volunteer pilots who fought in England and France before the U.S. entered the war.

Once the car makes it debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in England next month, it will return to the States to be auctioned off to support the Experimental Aircraft Associationís youth education programs.

Personal Note: I have no idea how much this auction on this car will make but its a beauty!
