2015 Ford Mustang GT Sells for $300k at Barrett-Jackson

The first retail Stang is auctioned with proceeds benefiting the JDRF diabetes research

The Blue Oval has officially unleashed its first 2015 Ford Mustang GT to the world. Celebrating the company’s redesign of the Mustang, Ford auctioned the first, retail Stang to one lucky bidder during the Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction in Scottsdale, Arizona.

The 2015 Ford Mustang GT is a beast that’s ready to fight in the 21st century. Carrying the Mustang legacy into the next generation, the GT makes 420 hp and 390 lb-ft of torque. The redesigned, sixth-generation Mustang will have an all-new independent front and rear suspension to help it grip, twist, and power through turns. The car comes with added electronic stability for smooth and consistent starts when launching, and an enhanced driving experience full of detailed information relayed to the driver when desired. We believe it’s safe to say the 2015 Ford Mustang GT will be a competitor both on and off the race track.

The Mustang GT auctioned at the Scottsdale, Arizona, Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction was serial number 001 and sold for $300,000. The proceeds went to benefit the JDRF diabetes research organization, a partner of Ford’s since 1983. JDRF is currently searching for a cure to type-1 diabetes. Ford has donated more than $3.5 million to JDRF via car sales over the years, including the sale of this first, retail Ford Mustang GT.

The Mustang brand was dubbed, in 1964, as “the car designed to be designed by you.” The winner of the auction was car collector and North Texas Ford dealer, Sam Pack, who spent the necessary dough to own the first Mustang. He will continue the tradition of choice with his all-new Stang with available GT options to personalize the car. Some choices include a manual or automatic transmission; any interior and exterior color combination offered and many more options, including performance upgrades. Helping to make this Mustang ever more special, the team involved in Mustang design and development has signed the car in appreciation of the donation to JDRF.

Expect the all-new, redesigned 2015 Ford Mustang to hit showrooms nationwide in the fall of 2014. The Stang will come with 3 available engines: 3.7L V6; 2.3L turbocharged four-cylinder; and 5.0L Coyote engine featured in the GT model. Stay tuned as we report back to you with Mustang prices, options, and of course, the much anticipated GT500 spec sheet.

Past two GT's have been true American muscle cars, but they are worth what they are worth. For 300 I'd buy one of them Lexus' or Ferraris.

I've owned 2 Mustang GTs in my life. I really like this color blue. Not digging the head light design. The rest of the car has some nods to the older stangs. If this car really is 300k, sorry I'd spend my money on a Ferrari.

Who in the hell would pay 300k for mustang? Ford built half a million in its first production year. You know they are going to build million and a half in 2015, dumbass. A dime a doze car.

U could buy a new GT500 and new super sticky tires (cause the only problem with the GT500 is traction) and a whole race setup for 300 large truck trailer team jerseys and all. Lol
