The highly modified Need For Speed Mustang Sells At Auction. The Ford 2014 Ford Mustang GT from the movie sold last week for $300,000 at the Barrett Jackson Auction in Florida. This Custom one of a kind Ford Mustang GT was used heavily for the filming of the movie and was also featured in the highly popular video game. The car was auctioned at no reserve at Barrett-Jackson in Florida, for $300,000 for charity. 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.” 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.
