Continuing its charitable activities, Ford auctioned off a 2014 Ford Mustang Cobra Jet Prototype last weekend at Barrett-Jackson Las Vegas sale. The car managed to fetch $200,000, all of which will benefit the National Multiple Sclerosis Society who helps patients suffering from central nervous system disease.
As his reward, the top bidder not only receives a 2014 Ford Mustang Cobra Jet Prototype powered by a 5.0-liter supercharged V8 mated to a T4 racing transmission, he also becomes the an honorary member of Team Mustang with full backstage passes to the Ford Product Development Center, Ford Design Studios and Ford Racing.
What’s more, he gets training at Roy Hill’s Drag Racing School, and will be featured in the Mustang book, as well as the video of vehicle build, testing and the action from Barrett-Jackson Las Vegas. But the best prize for this good deed is the feeling one gets from helping out those in need.
Finished in orange, the 2014 Ford Mustang Cobra Jet Prototype is a loaded dragster featuring traction “wheelie” bar, 8.50 ET certified chrome-moly safety cage, exclusive Cobra Jet-branded Weld wheels, three-link rear suspension, lightweight racing brakes, 9-inch rear axle, and custom Cobra-branded Recaro seats.
