I don't know if it's real, but you can try to identify it!

Most likely a modified P-51 Mustang for racing. Its nickname is 'Precious Metal'.

My school just got a shipment of this issue.  I didn't even notice the contra-rotating prop, but it certainly looks awesome!

Go to Google Images & type in precious metal p-51.
Lots of pics there & sites to enter.  ;)
