2014 Ford Mustang Cobra Jet Prototype Earns $200K for Charity

2014 Ford Mustang Cobra Jet Prototype Earns $200K for Charity

Ford is known for its charitable
contributions, and it continues this trend with its recent donation to the
National Multiple Sclerosis Society. Recently, a prototype of the 2014 Ford
Mustang Cobra Jet drag racer, which could represent the last version of the
current Ford Mustang's iconic shape, was auctioned off for $200,000. That's
about $100,000 more than the model is worth, and all the extra funds went to
benefit the aforementioned organization.

The unique sports car model was
auctioned at the recent Barrett-Jackson in Nevada, and the anonymous bidder has
been deemed an honorary member of Team Mustang. This means that he/she will
have VIP access to the Ford Racing department, the Ford Product Development
Center and Ford Design Studios. That, in itself, is worth such a high

In addition, the winner will
also receive official driver training in Sophia, North Carolina at Roy Hill's
Drag Racing School, as well as have his/her name jotted down in a future
Mustang documentary and commemorative book. Finally, he/she will be present in
a video of the protoype's creation and testing phases, along with footage from
the actual auction.

The prototype distinguishes
itself with a special serial number and a unique orange satin paint job with
dark gray stripes.

What an interesting auction!
Whoever this anonymous buyer is, he/she is very lucky to have purchased such an
incredible item.
