U.S. Air Force Reveals : 2009 Mustang X-1, and Challenger Vapor

Now, the U.S. Air Force is doing a marketing campaign to educate young people on the mechanical and technical career opportunities available within the Air Force. So how are they attracting youngsters? Well, muscle cars like the Ford Mustang and Dodge Challenger are the answer. But the Air Force also want to have their pony cars inspired by the fighter planes. So, U.S. Air Force has collaborated with Galpin Auto Sports, which is widely known through its involvement in MTV's Pimp My Ride show, to create customized versions of the Mustang and Challenger.

First, is the U.S. Air Force 2009 Mustang X-1. It's based on the last-generation 'Stang. Nevertheless, The 'X-1' Mustang features a 'jet cockpit that includes a single-driver ejection seat placed centrally, short shifter, flight stick, and a high-tech instrumentation panel. On the outside, the heavily modded 'Stang gets a wide bodykit, dark alloy wheels and a pair of Lamborghini-style scissor doors. Power is provided by a custom 4.6L V8 engine with 500 hp, parted with Ford Racing.

The more radical looking Dodge Challenger 'Vapor' continues the air-force theme with a 'Stealth' bodykit, carbon fiber exterior trim, a custom stealth exhaust mode that gives the driver the option to run the vehicle in complete silence, one-off carbon-fiber wheels, radar-absorbing paint, proximity sensors, and a 360-degree camera with a quarter-mile range.

The result is the air-force-inspired white Ford Mustang 'X-1' and black Dodge Challenger 'VAPOR' that will travel across the country this year. So dear youngsters, if you like the Air Force, and would also love scary-looking muscle cars, then these cars are cool.
