How much would you pay for a custom “Need for Speed” Ford Mustang GT? The 2013 Ford Mustang GT that starred in the blockbuster movie was sold by Ford Motor Company for $300,000 the past weekend at the Barrett-Jackson Auction Company’s West Palm Beach event.
Dave Flynn of Columbiana, Ohio, had the winning bid for the factory-special Mustang. The proceeds will benefit Henry Ford Health Systems’ efforts to provide access to healthcare for more people.
“Snagging such a high-profile car right now – 50 years after the birth of America’s first pony car – is something to be cherished,” said Steve Ling, North America car marketing manager for Ford. “And helping such an important cause makes the sale even more memorable.”
The Henry Ford Health System was founded in 1915 and is now one of the nation’s leading comprehensive, integrated health systems. It provides health insurance and healthcare delivery.
The “Need for Speed” ‘stang was filmed and on display for all promo stops touting the movie. The special Mustang boasts a custom-designed, wide body rolling on unique, Forgiato 22-inch alloy wheels. Other unique design elements include: an enlarged lower grille with new air intakes, extended rocker panels, a twin-snorkel hood and low-profile mirrors. With a powerful V8 engine, the Mustang is finished in silver paint with Kona Blue racing stripes.
