The 2015 Mustang from the movie “Need For Speed” is going up for auction, with a charity the beneficiary of the sale.
The car 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. The visual appeal is amplified by custom silver paint with Kona Blue racing stripes and angel-eye fog lamps in the grille.
It will be offered by the Ford Motor Company – at no reserve – at the Barrett-Jackson auction in West Palm Beach, Florida, April 12. The auction will be held at the South Florida Fairgrounds.
Proceeds will benefit the Henry Ford Health System, a not-for profit group founded in 1915 by auto pioneer Henry Ford and now one of the nation's leading health care providers. It is comprised of hospitals, medical centers and one of the nation's largest group practices, the Henry Ford Medical Group, which includes more than 1,200 physicians practicing in over 40 specialties.
“Need For Speed” is one of the most successful racing video game franchises in the world, with more than 140 million games sold since the original edition debuted 20 years ago. The Dreamworks Studios film stars Aaron Paul (“Breaking Bad”), Dominic Cooper (“Captain America”), Imogen Poots (“Fright Night”) and Michael Keaton (“Batman”), and is directed by Scott Waugh (“Act of Valor”). It premiers in theaters March 14.
