Almost-New 2023 Ford Mustang GT Gets Crashed, Hopes a Good Samaritan Would Save It

Why on earth would anyone save this 2023 Ford Mustang GT is beyond our understanding. But if you feel like you've got the knowledge, tools, patience, and money, then just ignore us, do your thing, and send us images of it after you're done.

One smart way to make money off it, if you can get it for cheap, that is, would be to disassemble it and sell it for parts. So long as you can save most of them. We wouldn't hold our breath for the engine, a 5.0-liter naturally aspirated V8 pumping out 450 horsepower and 410 pound-feet (556 Nm) of torque, as it looks beyond repairable.

The same goes for the entire front end of this 2023 Ford Mustang GT, which was completely destroyed. The doors, side windows, rear quarter panels, and the entire back end survived the impact that rendered this muscle car useless. Most of the dashboard panel and interior components can probably be saved. The same goes for the seats, though you will have to source the airbags that were deployed during the impact.

The mileage of this black-on-red pony car born during the 2023 model year at the Flat Rock Assembly Plant in Michigan is unknown. We also do not know the details behind the crash that destroyed it, as the Copart listing, which you can access here, does not reveal these details. In fact, it doesn't reveal anything else about it other than it will go under the online gavel part of an upcoming lot.

We'd advise interested parties to take a trip to Atlanta, Georgia, and check out the wreckage in person. They should preferably be accompanied by a mechanic with good knowledge of Ford's previous-gen muscle car, as some of the tips they could give you might make you say yes or no to it. You should get in touch with the vendor if you plan on inspecting it in the flesh, as it might be available by appointment only.

That said, would you buy it? And if so, how much would you be willing to cough out for it, assuming that the engine might be irreparable? Hold that thought while we remind you that the Ford Mustang is now in the S650 generation. The automaker is accepting orders for it, and the first reviews are out already.

The lineup comprises the usual EcoBoost and GT models, with their 2.3L EcoBoost and 5.0L V8 engines, respectively, in both coupe and convertible body styles. The entry-level is listed from $30,920 before destination, and the Dark Horse tops them all, priced from $59,270. The range-topper is the Dark Horse Premium, which starts at $63,265. And we cannot wait for the new Shelby GT500 to roll out.
