Usually auctions are seen as a stuffy ordeal, enjoyed only by stuffy people - not so with car auctions though. Aside from the fact that we get to see the most expensive and rare cars sold, there is also a lot of philanthropy that goes on at these events. It isn’t an uncommon occurrence for charity cars to go for big bucks, especially when they are cool or unique cars.

The 2010 Hurst Mustang Pace Car Convertible is one such unique ride, and it will be auctioned off at the Scottsdale, AZ Auction by Barrett-Jackson.

The Hurst Mustang Pace Car made its world debut at the final race of the Mustang Challenge race series in September. It is the first Mustang offering from Hurst Performance Vehicles since the company restarted operations last year. After playing pace car for the race, it was donated by Hurst and the Woodhouse Auto Family to Victory Junction’s new camp for kids in Kansas City. Victory Junction is a free, year-round camp for kids with serious medical conditions and their families.

But we’re here to talk about cars. Aside from donating to a good cause, the winning bidder will take home a serious piece of muscle car. With a supercharged, 435 horsepower engine, the Hurst Pace car promises to punish any asphalt it is unleashed upon. Sporting the traditional Hurst colors of white and gold, the pace car also gets an upgraded Eibach suspension, Magnaflow exhaust, white leather interior, and special 20 inch gold Hurst wheels. Quite the package, and for a great cause. Look for this car at the Scottsdale, AZ Auction Thursday, January 21st.
