The NASA-Inspired One-Off Mustang Just Sold For A Price We Think Should Have Been Higher

Auction

We think it should have gone for more.

Remember the Apollo Edition Mustang we showed you a few weeks back? It was the one-off created to be auctioned off for charity at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh, Wisconsin’s massive annual air festival. The Mustang was based off of the fastback GT and had a bunch of cool bits added, including awesome ground lights, a carbon fiber front splitter and 21-inch Forgiato wheels. The engine was tuned to produce 627 horsepower and 540 lb-ft of torque. So, how much did this one-off beast go for?

The Apollo Edition Mustang fetched $230,000 at auction. That’s damn good and it’s even better when you remember that the proceeds go to charity. Still, we think it could have gone for more. Back in 2008 a custom Mustang auctioned at EAA AirVenture went for $500,000. That was a different time and a different car of course. And the Mustang isn’t exactly a supercar. Still, it’s a badass one-off and the proceeds go to charity, folks! Is that not enough to drive a crazy bidding war?
