Ford has announced the selling of the first Mustang Apollo Edition for 230,000 USD.
Originally shown over the web a couple of weeks ago, the new Ford Mustang Apollo Edition is now entering our news once again, this time with the blue oval announcing the selling of the first example. The model in question has managed to find a new owner who paid 230,000 USD for it, at charity auction, on the 23rd of July, at EAA AirVenture, in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.
“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.”
The new Ford Mustang Apollo Edition has been created in order to celebrate 46 years since the first Moon landing. The model has a black and white exterior finish, six-piston brakes signed by Brembo, sport tuned suspension system and 21-inch Forgiato wheels. It is also coming with LED underbody lights, a carbon fiber front splitter, a rear diffuser, black leather sport seats in the cabin, special floor mats, white and rear contrast stitching, unique sill plates and an updated instrument cluster. Under its hood, we can find the 5.0 liter V8 engine, equipped with a sports exhaust system and a supercharger, capable of putting down a total of 627 HP (467 kW) and 731 Nm (540 lb-ft) of torque.
