2010 Ford Mustang AV-X10 "Dearborn Doll" - Click above for a high-res image gallery

The AV-X10 "Dearborn Doll" is not another limited-edition Mustang – it's a one-off tribute set to cross the block at this year's Experimental Aircraft Association's Gathering of Eagles charity auction.

The original AV8R netted $500,000 last year, and for 2009, Ford has gone all-out yet again, with a 550-hp Ford Racing Performance Parts supercharger kit, FR500S exhaust, FRPP's Handling Pack and a host of exterior and interior trimmings that make this rolling aircraft-inspired tribute a sight to behold. And now, you can behold it a bit more by checking out our updated high-res image gallery and the making-of video posted below the fold.

      Screw the car I want the Mustang!

      And the ugly keep getting uglier.

      From the generation that gave us everything, to the generation that let it all go to hell.

        Care to elaborate?

      To be complete, it needs a propeller, like the one my uncle had on the nose of his '51 Studey. I was a kid and thought it so cool...

      That glass roof graphic is awesome. This is a great Mustang.

      New autoblog, same endless stream of Ford Mustang special editions.

      Looks stupid and I'm a mustang guy.

      I'll give them credit for trying something that's different but, IMO, it's not that great. The wheel choice is a bit uninspired, given the rest of the details on the exterior - maybe something more vintage looking would've worked better:

      I like the performance enhancements, though.

      At least it's not as over-the-top as this recent, WWII-themed car:

      Shouldn't the front be similar to the plane? Red and Yellow with a Predominance of Black to the front? I like all of the other cues on the car .. just not the almost completely yellow front bumper ...

      It certainly sets the mind to wandering: would Chevy do a Camaro/F-6 Hellcat version? GM built Grumman navy planes under license during the war. Or maybe a Challenger/P-47 Thunderbolt?
        • 5 Years Ago
        Just the idea of a Challenger Thunderbolt sounds rather interesting. Blacked-out trim, a turbocharged 6.4 Hemi (the original P-47 used an 18-cylinder turbo radial), and some subtle badges.

        If you're gonna have a special edition, it better be DAMN special in my opinion.

      Your avatar might belie a bias Matt. Dunno... I'm playing with six shooters at midnight. I don't feel one way or another about this thing really. I'm desensitized by the endless flood of ponycar derivatives and "Special Edition" Models. They're either this, a relatively unattainable one-off, with no sizeable performance perks over a much cheaper production sibling (GT5-something). Or a touch more obnoxious. A poseur pony gussied up with inexplicably expensive paint choices, tasteless and imbalanced dubs coated in complementary wheel weights, and badges that someone(emphasis) might buy for a Jackson off ebay.

      I like the interior, don't know why they can't even pay close to that much attention to detail on all of the mustang interiors.
