We have been a sponsor of Barrett-Jackson for over a decade. Craig Jackson and his team raise millions for worthy charities, and last year was no exception. Our team was blown away when Ford’s most powerful production car approached the block. Although it was a prototype, the winning bidder secured the rights to the first production car. That is why the 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 VIN 001 will be unveiled at Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale.
A winning bid of $1.1 Million was hammered by none other than Craig himself. With all proceeds going to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. Craig and his wife Carolyn decided to outbid the audience to help such a worthy cause. It will be on display next to the “Green Hornet” and “Little Red” concept cars built by Carroll Shelby.
The assembly of this new supercar was captured by Speed Phenom in the film below, and our team is already in Scottsdale for this year’s auction. Stay with us for all your Barrett-Jackson updates.
