There’s nothing more iconic than the Raiders’ silver and black. However, until recently, those colors were reserved for jerseys, ballcaps and other team swag. Now, though, at least one person under the Raiders’ umbrella will have something else to show off his team’s colors. Let’s take a closer look at Coach Jon Gruden’s new custom Mustang in his team’s signature colors.

Gruden’s Custom Mustang

Ford and the NFL have always gone hand in hand. In 2017, the National Football League voted to move the Raiders from Oakland to Las Vegas with their stadium scheduled to open in 2020. While COVID-19 has put many things on hold, there are a few parts of the move that are still proceeding as planned.

To celebrate the team’s move to Las Vegas, the Southern Nevada Ford Dealerships gifted a brand-new Mustang Shelby GT500 to Coach Gruden in the Raider’s signature black and silver. It even has a custom license place that reads, “JTWYN.” It’s inspired by Gruden’s “Just Win, Baby” mantra.

The Ford dealerships in the Las Vegas area are part of a partnership with the team and are one of the founding partners of Allegiant Stadium. This gorgeous gift to the Raiders’ coach is a welcome present for the team and a hope that the Raiders will grow and thrive in their new home. The gorgeous GT500 is now the official vehicle of the Raider Nation.

Getting Your Own 2020 Mustang

While you might not be able to get your hands on a custom Radiers mustang, there are plenty of exciting options for you to choose from, especially this year. The 2020 Mustang GT500 is marketed as the most powerful Mustang ever made, cranking out a whopping 760 horsepower. It’s got a price tag to match and will set you back $72,000 before you even consider any add-ons or custom colors.

You’ve got plenty of options if the GT500’s price tag makes you balk. Ford offers five different trim options and eight configurations, from the Ecoboost Premium that starts at $31,685 all the way up to to the pricy GT500. Only the two Ecoboost models have a small 2.3L I-4 engine. Everything else comes equipped with Ford’s classic 5.0L V8 or the newly reconfigured 5.2L V8 Predator engine.

If you can wait one more year, you can even opt to pick up one of the new Mustang Mach-E’s — the world’s first fully-electric pony car. If all goes well and there aren’t any pandemic-related delays, we should start seeing the electric Mustang on showroom floors toward the end of the year.

Looking Forward

It’s true that 2020 might be throwing a wrench into things like the grand opening of Allegiant Stadium, but it is still proving to be one of the best years for Mustang fans in a long time. If you want to get your hands on a new Mustang, this is the year to do it. You can even pick a black and silver trim package, although it might not look precisely like this Raider GT500, currently tooling around the streets of Las Vegas.
