That’s almost ten times as much as the MSRP. But hey, it all went to charity.
The last retail Shelby GT500 convertible we reported last week was heading to auction crossed the block this week with a car collector paying a whopping $500,000 for the privilege. Donated by the Ford Motor Company, the drop-top Shelby was sold at the inaugural Barrett-Jackson “Hot August Nights” auction in Reno, Nevada, with proceeds going to the Brain Injury Association of America. The winning bidder will receive the GT500 Convertible at the end of the year after customizing it to his exact specifications.
