First 2015 Ford Mustang GT to be auctioned off

The first retail unit of the all-new 2015 Ford Mustang GT will be sold at Barrett-Jackson Auction Company's event in Scottsdale, Arizona, on January 18th, 2014. Offered at no reserve, all proceeds will benefit JDRF, which funds type 1 diabetes research.

The 2015 Ford Mustang GT boasts the same 5.0L V8 engine as the outgoing model. However, new cylinder heads and a revised intake manifold help increase output to more than 420 horsepower along with 390 lb-ft of torque.

The winning bidder of the first 2015 Ford Mustang GT will get to pick the colour and desired options. The car will also bear the signature of every Ford employee who participated in the design and development.

The first 2015 Ford Mustang GT will likely fetch a remarkable sum considering that the final 2014 Shelby GT500 Convertible, for example, sold for $500,000. Meanwhile, the very first 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray raised $1 million.
