First 2015 Ford Mustang auctioned off for huge coin

Make no mistake, the 2015 Ford Mustang has already been making waves, and is sure to make many more as we continue to creep closer to the showroom debut of the car, and the exuberant test drives which are sure to come.  What’s interesting this last week in all things 2015 Mustang is that the very first production unit went up for auction at Barrett-Jackson, and brought in $300,000.  Yikes.  Really?

Being the first one off the line, Ford had to make sure something special marked the occasion, and what better way than to slide the equivalent of some small nation’s GDP towards a charitable cause–the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.

One of the other, somewhat less spell-binding takeaways, is that the winning bidder get to fully personalize their new 2015 Mustang GT with any choice of options available on the 2015 Mustang model.  Want more?  Keep reading to check out the rest of the details in the PR…

First 2015 Ford Mustang to auction for charity

After seeing the 2015 Ford Mustang for ourselves mere days ago, it seems that Ford’s wasting zero time, pushing ahead with the 50th Anniversary event stream.  The latest morsel to fall from the table is that the very first retail 2015 Mustang GT is going to be a Fastback style car, destined for the auction block of Barrett-Jackson…for charitable purposes, of course.  The Juvenile Diabetes Research Fund (JDRF) is to receive the proceeds from the auction of 2015 Mustang unit #1.

The fortunate (and likely deep-pocketed) auction winner will be able to fully customize his or her 2015 Mustang GT with any of the available options Ford has tossed on the plate–and there’s no shortage of choices by any stretch of the imagination.
