Ford Mustang Apollo Edition 600x352 at Ford Mustang Apollo Edition Sells for $230K

If you remember a few weeks ago Ford unveiled the one-off Ford Mustang Apollo special edition for this year EAA AirVenture in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. The car has now been sold for $230,000, all of which will benefit EAA youth aviation education programs, including Young Eagles.

That might sound like a huge price to pay for what’s essentially a tricked-out Mustang GT, but this one-off edition supported a good cause, and it was also a very fine example of what can be done utilizing the car’s personalization potential.

Ford Mustang Apollo Edition features a one-off glossy pure white and pure black paint job inspired by the Apollo spacecraft, a set of 21-inch Forgiato wheels, and a custom body kit consisting of a carbon fiber front splitter, rear diffuser, rocker moldings and accent treatments – along with unique LED underbody lighting to symbolize atmospheric re-entry. Performance-wise, the 627-hp Apollo comes with a Ford Performance supercharger, X-pipe with side and rear exhaust, sport-tuned suspension, and six-piston Brembo brakes.

“The Apollo program is one of our nation’s greatest technological achievements, and we wanted to represent it with a car that salutes that spirit of American ingenuity with the quintessential American automobile – Ford Mustang,” said Edsel B. Ford II, a member of the Ford board of directors. “We’re thrilled this year’s stunning Apollo Edition Mustang raised nearly a quarter of a million dollars to support the freedom of flight for future generations.”
