auction raised $350,000

When it comes to testing the new 2013 GT500 with 650hp right off the showroom floor, Ford went big. The company constructed a one of a kind test mule that was put through its paces on the racetrack to be sure that the car would survive. The car that Ford used started life as one of the first 2007 Shelby GT500 test cars made.

Over the years the car was updated with bodywork from the 2010 GT500 before it was updated again to 13 specifications with the massive 650hp engine and more. This car has a full roll cage and special Recaro racing seats in it.

Ford put the car up for auction to benefit the JDRF, which is a research foundation set on finding a cure for juvenile type 1 diabetes. The car fetched $350,000 at auction. “This GT500 durability car represents the most recent collaboration between Ford SVT and Carroll Shelby,” said Fields. “Working alongside Carroll, our SVT team put this durability car through some of the most demanding driving conditions at Sebring International Raceway as well as others across the country. The result of those tests is the 2013 Ford Shelby GT500, the most powerful production V8 in the world.”
