It even has a unique shade of Venom metallic clearcoat.
The 2020 Mustang Shelby GT500 looks to be a serious performance car with a serious price tag. Ford's 760 horsepower bullet will arrive with a starting price of $73,995, making it far more expensive than rivals like the Chevy Camaro ZL1 and Dodge Challenger Hellcat Redeye. But the performance should easily live up to the price tag with 0-60 mph taking just 3.5 seconds and 0-100-0 taking just 10.6 seconds. These are supercar performance numbers.
Ford has already auctioned off the first GT500 (VIN 001) to benefit JDRF, a leading global charity that funds Type 1 diabetes research for children. The first GT500 sold for $1.1 million and now Ford will sell off another unique model to once again benefit JDRF.
This one-of-one GT500 will come painted in a unique shade of Venom metallic clearcoat, which will be exclusive to this car. The dark grey hue will be matched with black racing stripes (as seen in the above rendering) and the car will also be equipped with the Carbon Fiber Track Package. This adds exposed carbon fiber wheels, Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires, a rear seat-delete, Recaro seats, and a GT4 track wing.
Ford didn't mention if the car will also have the Handling Package and Technology Package but if all three packages are selected, the total value of the car will be $96,995 plus the added value of a one-off paint job.
Tickets for the raffle cost $10 and the drawing will be held on November 14th at the Ford Conference and Event Center. Ford and JDRF plan to sell 75,000 raffle tickets, raising $750,000 in the process. The second-place winner will receive an all-inclusive VIP race experience for two at the 2020 Daytona 500.
"Building on the excitement around GT500 is a terrific way to help JDRF fund research and help find a cure for Type 1 diabetes," said Dave Pericak, Ford director of enterprise product line management. "Not only does this raffle provide an opportunity to win the most powerful production Ford ever, it also speaks to how Ford strives to make people's lives better."
