What Is the F-35 Lightning II Edition Mustang?Last Updated September 24, 2020
With a design inspired by Lockheed Martin's F-35 Lightning, this 2015 Mustang GT dubbed the F-35 Lightning II Edition Mustang was auctioned off for $200,000 to help benefit the EAA's Young Eagles program. This special edition Mustang features a fighter-jet style yellow and black tail end with "F-35" in large lettering across the rear panel.
Available on several Mustang between 1983 and 2010 was a five-speed manual transmission known as the T5. The T5 was an effort by Ford to give the Mustang better gas mileage and performance. The T5 was beginning to be phased out in 1995 and was replaced with the TR-3550.
The SMS 302 Mustang is based off the 2011 Mustang GT and is capable of producing over 440 horsepower with an option of adding a supercharger on top of that. Other upgrades included an aggressive new body kit, new springs, front struts, rear shocks and linkages, and upgraded brakes.
2005 saw the introduction of a truly "limited-edition" Mustang, available only in San Diego, CA, the San Diego Special Mustang. Not only did it feature an upgraded exhaust, V6 engine, rear spoiler and special badging throughout, but also gleaming chrome spinner wheels and a booming Shaker stereo system.
