Some people absolutely have to be the first, or one of, to get something. You know the type… The ones that stand in line on day one for a new iPhone or games console. Come to think of it, I am one of those people and so I know sometimes our impatience gets the better of us. We will stand in line at unearthly hours for what we want! Well, the chap who so very badly wanted the first 2015 Mustang has just paid $300,000 for it.
You read the title correctly, the first 2015 Ford Mustang sells for $300,000 at the Barrett-Jackson car auctions. All of the money has gone to a charity called JDRF that is the leading research organisation for diabetes. The new GT fastback is quite the departure from the car it replaces looking very modern and also making its way to UK dealerships for the first time. 2014 marks the 50th anniversary for Mustang and so Ford had to come up with something special. Independent suspension, reworked engine including a new 2.3 litre designed with Europe in mind, and an interior which blend tradition with the modern age. Though Ford has yet to announce pricing for its new pony car, it wouldn’t be a poor guess to say that the first 2015 Ford Mustang has sold for 10 times its retail price. However, the money has gone to the right place and so Ford must be congratulated.
