These days, every automobile manufacturer is under the gun to do more with less, maintain a viable cost structure, fend off the competition, and well, stay solvent in rough economic times.  Ford, under the of leadership savvy business people like Alan Mulally, has been making progressive moves before the economy started to slide.  Once upon a time, we heard rumors about the EcoBoost power plant potentially making it into the 2010 Ford Mustang or perhaps even in 2011.  Some speculated the twin-turbo six cylinder EcoBoost was a total rumor.  Well, as you know, the latter group is dead wrong.  Ford’s R&D technology has come full-circle with the engineering wrapped up inside the “EcoBoost Revolution”.  Sounds interesting, right?  Ford has the EcoBoost as a card to play in today’s high stakes game of automotive poker.  Is it a card worth playing or folding?  Keep reading, and find out for yourself.

Ford Unwraps AV-X10 “Dearborn Doll” for EAA Auction

2010_Mustang_AV-X10_intro

After seeing just how successful the last Experimental Aircraft Association  auction of the Ford Mustang AV8R was, the powers-that-be decided it best to bring about another pony car spin-off to the block for this year’s gathering. Oshkosh is the scene for the auction of the 2010 Mustang AV-X10 which is treated to a star-and-bar glass roof, GT500 wheels, spoiler, and lower rear fascia, as well as some World War II inspired lacquer. With orange trim on the nose and tail, a snow white AV-X10 tail stripe, and an official “Dearborn Doll” fuselage pinup, the AV-X10 is in no doubt a great continuation of respect and honor to the US Armed Forces, just as the Roush P-51B was. Aside from the decor and paint, the AV-X10 is also packed with plenty of punch to compliment its patriotic appearance. The based 4.6-liter V8 has been nudged upward by the Ford Racing Performance Parts 550 horsepower supercharger kit, a tuned FR500S exhaust setup, and is equipped with the FRPP Handling Pack. On the inside, a few nice touches help the pilot keep the pony on the road [course]. A short-throw shifter, an aircraft-themed instrument cluster, seats done up in bomber-jacket leather, and aluminum dash trim all give this 2010 Mustang AV-X10 the official USAF feel from times past.  So how do we bring this glory of the past to the present? Couple up this nostalgic glory and decor with a push-start button from today and the cash you’ve been saving since the past.
