Ford has recently announced its plans to auction for charity the last 2014 Shelby GT500 Convertible, at the hot August Nights Auction in Reno, Nevada.
According to the North American based automaker, the last 2014 Shelby GT500 Convertible hasn’t been made just yet and this means that the company will allow the winning bidder to select the exterior color, stripe color combination, interior color and some other tweaks. The muscle car in question will be signed by Parnelli Jones, the Indy 500 winner, and proceeds will go to the Brain Injury Association of America (BIAA).
“Parnelli and Page [Jones] are some of our strongest voices in our advocacy efforts and we’re delighted to work together along with Ford and Barrett-Jackson for the sale of the Shelby”, said Susan Connors, the president and CEO of BIAA.
As a quick reminder, the 2014 Shelby GT500 Convertible is powered by a 5.8 liter supercharged V8 engine. The unit is producing a total output of 650 HP (485k W) and it has a peak torque of 813 Nm (600 lb-ft). The model has lapped the Sebring International Raceway 3.5 seconds faster than the previous generation and it now has a top speed limiter, which will assure a top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph).
