Want to be the very first person to own a 2015 Ford Mustang GT? Here’s what you’ll need to do: be in Scottsdale, AZ on January 18 for the Barrett-Jackson auction and bring a very big checkbook. Having a passion for charity isn’t a bad idea either.
Yes, the first 2015 Mustang to be sold to the public will be crossing the block at Barrett-Jackson in Scottsdale, with proceeds from the auction going to JDRF, the charity formerly known as the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
“Ford Mustangs have always been among the most popular collector cars at Barrett-Jackson Collector Car events,” said the president of Barrett-Jackson, Steve Davis. “While every collector wishes they had snapped up the first Mustang sold in 1964, this is an opportunity to realize that dream in a different way.”
The car being auctioned will feature a 5.0-liter V8 with over 420 horsepower and 390 pound-feet of torque, while the lucky auction winner will have the entire list of options at their disposal in order to personalize their new Mustang. That means a choice between a six-speed automatic or a six-speed stick, and any interior or exterior color combo.
The 2015 Mustang GT will be lot 3010 in Scottsdale, on January 18.
