In yesterday’s press release, Ford announced that a 2013 Shelby GT500 will be auctioned, in partnership with the Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction, to raise money for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF).
Held every year since 1971, the Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction has helped Ford raise more than $3 million for the JDRF in the last five years. Type 1 diabetes, formerly called juvenile diabetes because it’s usually diagnosed in childhood, is an autoimmune condition that affects nearly 1.3 million Americans, or five percent of people with diabetes.
Other Ford cars that have been auctioned in the name of the JDRF include production samples of the Shelby GT500KR and the Shelby GT, as well as the Grabber Blue Mustang Boss 302 Laguna Seca last year.
On Saturday, January 21, the auction in Scottsdale, Arizona, will be televised live on SPEED Channel. Ford’s President of The Americas, Mark Fields and members of SVT will join the one-of-a-kind car on stage for the event. The 650-horsepower GT500 comes equipped with six-point harness Recaro racing seats, donated by Recaro North America, and is signed by the members of the SVT engineering team. It will likely remain “a museum piece as it can’t be registered for road use,” according to AutoBlog.com.
At Damerow Ford, we love the Ford Mustang. We’re pumped for the 2012 Ford Mustang and love to admire our inventory. One model in particular, however, stands out from the rest: the gorgeous 2012 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 you see in this image!
Let’s start with the outside. The Shelby’s aggressive exterior design is complemented by a shiny coat of white paint with a red racing stripe down the middle, red accents, and a rear spoiler. Its wheels, while common to the Shelby model, can hardly be called “stock”. The interior is equipped with leather-trimmed sport bucket seats with racing stripes coordinated with the exterior color. Features include satellite radio capability, Microsoft Sync, electronic dash, leather seats, navigation, and much more.
While these features are certainly impressive, you’re probably wondering what’s under the hood. The Shelby includes a 5.4-liter 4V supercharged aluminum block V8 engine which achieves a jaw-dropping 550 horsepower. It comes with a 6-speed manual transmission for ultimate control both in the city and country roads.
If you’re interested in taking a look at this gorgeous model, we would love to show it to you! Give us a call at 800-732-8633 today to set up an appointment with one of our Ford experts. We look forward to seeing you!

The 2010 Shelby GT, with its supercharged and intercooled 5.4-liter dual overhead cam V-8 engine, produces 540 horsepower at 6,200 rpm and 510 ft.-lb. of torque. The improved straight-line acceleration, plus fuel savings when cruising on the highway in the top gears, makes this Shelby GT500 a remarkable vehicle. When put to some independent testing, it boasted an incredible 904hp.
