The American-built P-51 Mustang is one of the most important airplanes that served in the Second World War. More than 15,000 of them were produced in the war years and served in theaters across the world, as their fame grew thanks to the namplate being honored throughout the decades in the most innovative of ways.
Traditionally, the auto industry’s connection to the P-51 is represented by Ford, which currently fields a car that shares the same name with the airplane. But that doesn’t mean others can’t try and tap into the emotion the fighter still generates.

One of the most recent additions to the list of global carmakers, Karma Automotive, is currently gearing up to launch the newest generation of the Revero hybrid sports car. In an attempt to stir up interest, it decided to link the model to the iconic P-51.

This past weekend, two pre-production 2020 Revero GT cars entered the goldRush Rally ELEVEN which will see them travel for 3,000 miles between Miami, Florida and Austin, Texas.

Both cars are wrapped in such a way as to honor “Southern California’s rich aviation history and the iconic P-51 Mustang.” Special decals have been fitted on the vehicles’ body and calipers, reminding viewers of the red, yellow, gray and silver designs of the fighter plane.

Shown for the first time publicly this year at the 2019 Shanghai Auto Show, the new generation Revero uses a BMW-sourced three-cylinder in-line engine paired to an on-board electric generator and two electric motors.

The motors on the car develop 536 hp, enough punch to allow it to reach the 60 mph mark in 4.5 seconds, a full one second faster than the current generation of the car.

Thanks to a 28 kWh mid-mounted lithium-ion battery, the Revero can run in all-electric mode for up to 80 miles, way up from the current 50 miles.

The new Revero GT will become availlable in the second part of the year.
