Rare SR-71 Mustang Blackbird car sells for $375,000 at aviation sale

Last weekend's aviation auction in Oshkosh, Wisconsin sold a number of vintage planes, with a Socata TBM attracting a bid of $900,000.

However, one vehicle sold which merely makes the driver feel like they're flying: an SR-71 Mustang Blackbird.

 

Jointly created by Jack Roush and Carroll Shelby, the SR-71 features matte grey paint, a glass roof, and custom wheels (19-inch front / 20-inch rear).

Inside, the cabin is outfitted with Recaro race seats, a sport steering wheel, a Ford Racing instrument cluster, a modified navigation system, special floor mats, SR-71 badging, and a roll cage.

Under the hood, power is provided by a 5.0-liter Ti-VCT V8 engine which is equipped with a 2.3-liter Whipple Twin Screw Supercharger, a Roush air intake, and a Ford Racing exhaust.

The fine automobile was sold on August 1 for a grand sum of $375,000, with the proceeds being donated to the EAA's (Experimental Aircraft Association) Young Eagles program.
