With an almost iconic history in the world of arcade racing simulators, the Need for Speed series has now jumped to Hollywood’s stable and one of the cars in the movie took a Barrett-Jackson auction by storm.
The Barrett-Jackson auction in Florida continued the buzz surrounding the action-packed film version of the Need for Speed game franchise and helped a custom made 2013 Ford Mustang GT featured during the blockbuster reach a $300K bid.
Fortunately, the West Palm Beach Barrett-Jackson auction was for a good cause, as the proceedings from the sold car will now go to the nonprofit Henry Ford Health System. The custom Need for Speed Mustang GT now belongs to Dave Flynn of Columbiana, Ohio – which will take a unique Mustang, sporting a one-off wide-body kit, a bigger air sipping lower grille with new intakes, extended rocker panels, a twin-snorkel hood and low-profile mirrors. The design is finished with a silver paint job that features Kona Blue racing stripes and Forgiato 22-inch aluminum alloy rims.
In the Need for Speed movie, Breaking Bad actor Aaron Paul uses the Mustang GT as his ride on an exclusive action packed illegal cross country road race that sees the car speed and jump the gun on the long arm of the law.
On the other hand, the Henry Ford Health System was established in 1915 to aid the Edith and Benson Ford Heart and Vascular Institute.
