One-off GT500

On September 22, the Henry Ford Health System in Michigan will auction a one-off 2013 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 at the “Get Your Heart Racing” fundraiser at Ford’s Dearborn test track. This unique Shelby will feature a white exterior, contrasting white graphics, white 20-inch wheels, and white-leather Recaro seats with contrasting black stitching. Beneath the skin-deep changes, the one-off keeps all the 662-hp goodness that makes the GT500 the beast that it is.

This GT500 was designed by Melvin Betancourt, a designer at Ford. Betancourt was a patient at Henry Ford Hospital and whipped up the auction car’s design as a thank-you gift. At last year’s event, a Boss 302 was auctioned for $300,000. All proceeds go to the Edith and Benson Ford Heart & Vascular Institute at Henry Ford Health System.
