The special edition Ford Mustang GT Apollo is a stunning one-off model that sold for $230k in a charity auction.
Ford is one of the most well-known American automakers of all time. People know the company for all sorts of vehicles, but perhaps the most famous is the Ford Mustang. Dating back to 1964, the Ford Mustang has several trims, special editions, and engine options. However, the one-off versions of the iconic pony car deserve an elevated level of respect. The GT Apollo Edition is one of the most well-regarded in this category of Ford Mustangs.
The Ford Mustang GT Apollo Edition came along in 2015. Inspired by the U.S. Apollo Space flight program, the Mustang GT Apollo Edition is perhaps one of the most patriotic of all the one-off Ford Mustangs. As with the others, the sale of the GT Apollo Edition went to a more than worthy cause, as it raised funding for EAA youth aviation programs, including Young Eagles. This car represented the eighth year Ford released a unique Ford Mustang to benefit aviation programs. At this point in 2015, the automaker had donated close to $3 million to the cause.
This version of the Mustang, which the automaker based on the 2015 Fastback Mustang GT, is special in more ways than one. Not only does it benefit a great cause, but it’s also a great vehicle from the ground up.
The 2015 Ford Mustang GT Apollo Edition is one model that shows why people still respect the nameplate. Though not a vehicle intended for mass production, it’s still one that Mustang fans can be proud of. This car has a 5.0-liter V8 engine with a maximum output of 627 horsepower. According to Ford, the torque on this machine is 540 lb-ft. This model is a rear-wheel drive vehicle with a manual transmission. In addition, the Ford Mustang GT Apollo Edition features an in-house shifter and performance supercharger.
Like all Mustangs, this car is fast. Reportedly, the 2015 Ford Mustang GT Apollo Edition accelerates from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just 3.8 seconds. The vehicle has a top speed of 193 miles per hour. For the sake of comparison, the regular Ford Mustang GT from 2015 accelerates from 0 to 60 miles per hour in 4.3 seconds. Both cars are fast, but the GT Apollo Edition is more than a few notches above, which is one of the reasons it’s so special. As most car enthusiasts will confirm, the Mustang is not the fastest sports car on the market. However, it’s about the handling, the smooth ride, and the fact that all models of the Mustang are fun to drive while also being approachable to a variety of people. The only sad part is that only one owner gets the joy of driving the Ford Mustang GT Apollo Edition.

The exterior of the Ford Mustang has always been special. This is because while the car has largely stayed the same in terms of its overall look, the automaker has found ways to keep it modern. However, the 2015 Ford Mustang GT Apollo Edition is one of the most stunning versions in recent memory. The car has a clean look that highlights the best features of the car’s exterior. Starting with the color, this model of the Mustang is a glossy pure white, which is a one-of-a-kind shade. There are also black elements around the car that really make this model stand out and remind you of the classics, but with a twist. This color scheme also connects the car with the NASA program. The vehicle has “USA” written on either side and the American flag above it. In addition, the mirror caps are also red, which really brings the car together.
The 2015 Ford Mustang GT Apollo Edition is stunningly beautiful. The car sits up there with some of the best models of all time in terms of looks. It’s subtle, but this car still makes a bold statement.

Practically, any one-off vehicle is going to be expensive. However, the price tag for this one shows the importance of the Mustang name. The 2015 Ford Mustang GT Apollo Edition sold at auction for an astonishing $230,000. Fortunately, 100% of the proceeds from the sale went to the Experimental Aircraft Association’s youth aviation programs. Overall, the auction raised over $2.2 million. Unlike other unique Ford Mustangs, the buyer of this one is still unidentified. However, we're sure they're beyond ecstatic about their purchase.
The Ford Mustang GT Apollo Edition may not have sold for as much as the Eagle Squadron GT, but it’s a pretty amazing car that helped a great cause. It shows that sometimes a more subtle approach makes for the best-looking vehicles.
