Ford to Auction VIN 001 2020 Mustang Shelby GT500 for Charity
First of new GT500s goes across Barrett-Jackson’s auction block to support JDRF.
It is no secret to most of the automotive enthusiasts around the world that Ford’s upcoming 2020 Shelby GT500 is going to be one stout car. While little has been leaked everyone is expecting over 700 kitty-killing horsepower (Hellcat that is, we love actual cats!) with braking and handling upgrades that will leave competitors scrambling to their drawing boards for updates. Of course it is no secret that the new GT500 that is coming is going to have a healthy window sticker as well (and we won’t even get into the whole dealer markup argument either).
That said, if your pockets are deep enough, and you just HAVE to have the first 2020 GT500 off of the assembly line, then you’re not going to want to be anywhere else in the world on January 18, 2019 then the front row at the Barrett-Jackson [www.barrett-jackson.com] Collector Car Auction in Scottsdale, Arizona. It is there that Ford will be auctioning off VIN 001 with all proceeds going to help Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) research a cure for Type 1 Diabetes.
