2020 Ford Shelby Mustang GT500 VN001 Strikes Auction
The debut of the 2020 Ford Shelby Mustang GT500 will be at te Detroit Auto Show and after that it will be auctioned off. New cars come with the new year and more charity auctions can be seen on the horizon. It has been announced b Toyota that their first new Supra will be auctioned off at the 2019 Barrett-Jackson event in Scottsdale, Arizona.
Also Ford’s new brand Mustang GT500 will be auctioned off at this event. The date of the auction is January the 18th 2019, the Mustang is on lot No 3,008. The A90 Supra will come in grey, black and exterior colors and as opposite to this Ford will auction off a black list for their GT500.
The one which wins will be able to modify to personal expectations, to personalize their Mustang with the color they choose and that goes for the interior options too, so that they will have a Mustang exactly as they had dreamed of. The ones who choose Toyota they will be able to take it home shortly after offering the money which is not the case with the ones who choose Mustang, they’ll get it in a few months.
GT500 won’t hit dealers until the fall 2020, so the patient ones will be the winners. What was announced by Ford is not much only that GT500 will “make 700 hp plus” – which statement is a contradiction or a correction to the last one they gave that the GT500 will have over 650hp. We can expect that the 5.2-L supercharged V8 under the hood really produce more than 700 hp.
There are two options – a 10-speed automatic or 7-speed dual-clutch which is widely expected, or the less expected but optional a 6-speed manual. The Juvenile Diebetes Research Foundation is where all proceeds for the auction will go to. Ford already gives $2 million to this Foundation annually. The Supra’s auction will go to American Heart Association and the Bob Woodruff Foundation . Let’s see which one will bring in the higher price: the Mustang or the Supra.
