The first retail 2015 Ford Mustang GT will be auctioned off at the Barrett-Jackson event in Scottsdale, Arizona with the proceeds benefiting diabetes research charity JDRF.
The special Mustang GT being auctioned off will be signed by the team involved in the sports car’s design and development and will be scheduled for delivery after production of the new model year begins. Through the years, Ford has raised over $3 million for JDRF and has supported the organization since 1983.
The 2015 Ford Mustang GT is powered by a V8 powerplant with “more than” 420 hp and 390 lb-ft of torque. During the auction, the American automaker will be allowing those attending the sale to experience the new sports car with ride-and-drive and hot lap experiences.
“We’re kicking off the next 50 years of Mustang in style with a 2015 model featuring a sleek all-new design, world-class performance and innovative technologies,” says Steve Ling, North America car marketing manager for Ford. “We’re thrilled to be able to take advantage of Mustang’s popularity to help achieve the dream of ending juvenile diabetes.”
