How much would you pay for the first-ever model of the 2020 Shelby GT500? Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson, spent $1.1 million. Why is this muscle car so desirable? It's the strongest on the market with more than 700 horsepower! The Mustang was sold on January 18, 2019, to the top bidder at the B-J Collector Car Auction in Scottsdale at a charity event where all the proceeds went to JDRF: the leading global organization for researching the cure for type 1 diabetes in children. Jackson is now the titleholder of this coveted beauty and the toughest decision he’ll have to make is which color and options he wants for his new vehicle.
If you’re looking for a new automobile and are interested in a great pre-owned opportunity, then the 2016 Ford Mustang GT is an excellent choice. Under the hood rests a boisterous 5.0-liter V8 engine that generates a whopping 435 hp and 400 lb.-ft. of torque. It also gets an extraordinary fuel economy of 16 MPGs in the city and 25 MPGs on the highway for a combined total of 19.
