NFS Mustang Auction

 A custom 2013 Ford Mustang GT that starred in the blockbuster movie “Need for Speed” was sold by Ford Motor Company for $300,000 on Saturday at Barrett-Jackson Auction Company’s West Palm Beach event.

 John Felice, vice president of U.S. marketing, sales and service, drove the spectacular Mustang onto the big stage. After spirited bidding that electrified the block, Dave Flynn of Columbiana, Ohio, won the factory-special Mustang. Auctioned at no reserve, proceeds will benefit Henry Ford Health System, the nonprofit founded by Henry Ford to support the Edith and Benson Ford Heart and Vascular Institute.

 “Everyone has a Mustang story, and the new owner of this movie car now has one that is particularly special,” says Steve Ling, North America car marketing manager for Ford. “Snagging such a high-profile car right now – 50 years after the birth of America’s first pony car – is something to be cherished. And helping such an important cause makes the sale even more memorable.”

 Founded in 1915, Henry Ford Health System is one of the nation’s leading comprehensive, integrated health systems. It provides health insurance and healthcare delivery, including acute, specialty, primary and preventive-care services, backed by excellence in research and education.

 “Watching the car cross the block in support of Henry Ford Health System was very rewarding,” says Sandy Hudson, chief development officer for the organization. “Dave Flynn did much more than just purchase a new car. His purchase will help so many people get access to healthcare.”

 The “Need for Speed” Mustang was used in filming and was displayed at all promotional stops for the movie. It boasts a custom-designed, wide body rolling on unique, Forgiato 22-inch alloy wheels. Other design elements include an enlarged lower grille with new air intakes, extended rocker panels, a twin-snorkel hood and low-profile mirrors. With a powerful V8 engine, the Mustang is finished in silver paint with Kona Blue racing stripes.

Featured prominently in the company’s booth is this gorgeous 302 SC Black Label Mustang Speedster painted in an eye-catching Speedlab Yellow.

KLIMS13.Ford Mustang Shelby GT500

Ford Mustang Shelby GT500

 The star of the Ford display at KLIMS13 has undoubtedly been the LHD fifth-gen Ford Mustang Shelby GT500. Great to look at, the highest-spec S197 ‘tang, equipped with a 662 hp and 855 Nm 5.8 litre supercharged V8 and a Tremec six-speed manual, but it might as well be an alien craft to most.

 The next Mustang, however, is set to be a more familiar face to Malaysians. Yes, the word is that the Blue Oval is planning to introduce the RHD version of the S550 here when the upcoming sixth-gen enters the market. The UK is already confirmed as a market for the variant, as is Australia, the latter set to get the car in 2016.

 It’s too early to see how things will shape up here exactly – we’re told that the smallest current engine choice, the 305 hp 3.7 litre Ti-VCT V6, is a strong contender, but there’s a more sensible option to be had in the form of a 2.3 litre EcoBoost four-cylinder turbo that’s being planned for select markets. Certainly, that one sounds like an easier proposition to digest.

 The sixth-generation Mustang will debut at the 2014 New York Auto Show next April, coinciding with the Mustang’s 50th anniversary, but chances are, the earliest we’ll see the new pony car in these parts of the woods will be nearly three years from now, when Australia begins bringing it in.
