First 2010 Ford Shelby GT500 & Two 2003 Mustang GT Concept Cars to be Auctioned at Barret-Jackson

Barret-Jackson car auction is famous for the "first" of cars. Auctions like the first retail Corvette ZR-1 or the first Ferrari California end up being sold in 6-figures to a rich multi-millionaire. So, it's time for the Ford Mustang to shine!Ford Motor Company (FoMoCo) will be selling three 'Stangs at Barret-Jackson. One, is a brand-new and first 2010 Ford-Shelby GT500, and the other two are the 2003 Mustang GT Concept that debuted at the 2003 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. However, the millions coming from those three cars won't be spent on developing cars. In fact, FoMoCo will actually donate the proceeds from the auction to charity. Specifically, proceeds above MSRP from the sale of the Shelby GT500 will be donated to The Carroll Shelby Children's Foundation while the two Mustang concepts will be auctioned to benefit the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.The first retailed 2010 Ford-Shelby GT500 features a color scheme and equipment personally chosen by Carroll Shelby himself. This wild 'Stang features a Kona Blue paint-finish with classical white stripes. It is powered by a 5.4L supercharged V8 that delivers 540 hp and 510 lb-ft of torque.As for the two Mustang GT Concepts, the one-off coupe and convertible were actually study cases. So in 2005, the beloved retro-styled S197 Mustang was born. So these two GT concepts are quite special, which should up the price to over one million dollars.
