To benefit the Henry Ford Health System, a not-for-profit group founded by Henry Ford to improve the health and well-being of a the community, the Blue Oval sold the car that we saw in Need for Speed movie.
The custom 2013 Ford Mustang appeared in the blockbuster movie and during promotional clips. The car is inspired by Ford Shelby GT500 and is cutomised with the help of a wide body kit, 22 inch custom wheels wrapped with Pirelli tires, custom front end and extended rocker panels and new rear spoiler.
All this are finished with silver paint and personalised with Kona Blue Racing stripes, applied on the snorkel hood.
At the heart of the car is the 5.0 liter V8, connected to the back axle through the 6-speed manual transmission. The eight cylinders breathe through a custom exhaust system, while the road holding is ensured by coilover suspension, upper strut mount kit, adjustable third-link trailing arm, revised suspension points, billet lower trailing arms, new rear sway bar and an adjustable front sway bar.
Inside the car there are Recaro front seats, no rear seats, roll bars and special logo.
The car went under the hammer at Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach Auction earlier this month and managed to earn a healthy sum of $300,000 the equivalent of 217,000 EUR.
