First 2010 Ford Shelby GT500 Up for Auction
The first 2010 Shelby GT500 is powered by a supercharged 5.4-liter V8 engine that produces a maximum power of 540 hp and 510 lb-ft of torque. The car comes in a Kona Blue exterior color with white racing stripes and equipment personally chosen by Carroll Shelby.
On the other hand, the Redline Red Mettalic Ford Mustang GT convertible concept comes with a rollover bar and 20-inch wheels featuring high-performance Brembo brakes. The interior boasts red and black leather, 4-point racing-style seatbelts and special instrument gauges.
"This car began with a significantly modified Ford Thunderbird rear-wheel-drive architecture," noted Steve Davis, president of Barrett-Jackson. "The platform was sectioned to achieve the proper proportion and the front-end geometry is all original. This is truly a piece of history that represents the transition to an entirely new Mustang."
The second concept is the Tungsten Silver Ford Mustang GT coupe concept that sports a glass roof and lush red and charcoal leather interior plus a maximum output of nearly 400 horsepower.
"During the last three years, Ford and Barrett-Jackson have raised more than $2 million for charity through the auction of Ford vehicles," noted Mark Fields, Ford Motor Company's president, The Americas. "Ford and Barrett-Jackson will continue this important tradition at this year's Palm Beach auction. The winning bidders for these fantastic Mustangs will be contributing to worthy causes while purchasing automotive history."
