The Ford Mustang Apollo Pays Tribute To NASA’s Famous Space Program
Here it is, in all its glory and astonishing beauty – the Ford Mustang Apollo. Inspired by NASA’s space program, this cool-looking
spaceship Mustang is the latest creation in a series of unique vehicles meant to be auctioned in order to support the Experimental Aircraft Association’s youth aviation program. As you’d expect, the car’s white and black coloring is a direct homage to the famous Apollo project.
This one-off theme continues inside the cabin as well, where an embroidered logo – composed of all Apollo mission patches – can be easily noticed where the backseat used to be. There are also various other Apollo motifs inside the cockpit, such as a modified instrument cluster, performance gauges, new seats with custom leather and more.
On an aesthetic level, the Mustang boasts a drool inducing design. As a result of hard work by Mad Industries, the vehicle now features a time-attack carbon fiber front splitter, a rear diffuser and even LED underbody lightning which might remind you of the harsh atmospheric re-entry. Let’s not forget the 21-inch Forgiato performance alloys this beast is now riding on.
There had to be some fiddling around under the bonnet as well, so the 5.0-liter Coyote supercharged engine by Ford Performance – good for around 627 hp and 732 Nm (540 lb-ft) of torque – was put to work. Also part of this stunning package are an X-pipe with side and rear exhausts, sport tuned suspension, and six-piston Brembo brakes.
This Mustang looks like it’s out of this world and I totally want it!
