First Retail 2015 Ford Mustang Auctioned for $300K

2015 Ford Mustang 600x378 at First Retail 2015 Ford Mustang Auctioned for $300K

As promised, Ford auctioned off the very first production unit of the 2015 Mustang, at the Barrett-Jackson auction this past weekend, for Charity. The Mustang in question was a GT Coupe powered by a 5.0 liter V8 model, and it fetched an amazing $300,000.

All the proceeds from the sale of this 2015 Ford Mustang, as well as other valuable classic Mustangs, will go to JDRF, America’s leading global organization funding type 1 diabetes research. Ford Motor Company has been a supporter of JDRF since 1983.

It has become a tradition for American car makers to auction off the first production unit of very new model for charity. But Ford believes there is more to it than that when you are talking about the Mustang. This car has been the symbol of freedom and independence for millions of people for nearly 50 years. It’s been on Army recruitment brochures for God’s sake. The Mustang is a real-life hero.

As for the specs of the auctioned 2015 Ford Mustang, it is not yet finished actually, as the buyer will get to customize it to the very last detail on the exterior as well as the interior. We suspect it is going to be fully loaded, with some stripes, and probably a manual transmission.

The next Mustang to cross the auction block for the sake of the greater good will be the custom 2014 Mustang GT hero car from the upcoming action film ”Need for Speed” that will go under the hammer at the Barrett-Jackson auction in April.
