American car maker, Ford, has announced the 2014 Mustang, which featured in the Need for Speed movie, will be auctioned at the Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach Auction on April 12th.
Specifically created for the movie, this 2014 Ford Mustang is equipped with a custom wide body kit that includes a new front bumper and extended side skirts. The car also features a “twin-snorkel” hood, angel-eye fog lights and 22-inch Forgiato alloy wheels.
Here are the details of the auction :
- Ford-designed and built custom wide body Mustang used in the new movie “Need for Speed” will be auctioned for charity
- All-new 2015 Ford Mustang and 2015 Ford F-150 will be on display at the auction in West Palm Beach, Fla.
- Ford will offer ride-and-drives at the auction in vehicles from its 2014 lineup; Shelby GT500, Focus ST and Fiesta ST are primed for hot-lap experiences
According to Ford North America car marketing manager Steve Ling, “Director Scott Waugh challenged our team to give this central character enough personality and American masculinity to take on some of the world’s most exotic cars, just like in the popular Electronic Arts video game that inspired the movie.” He further says, “The new owner of this particular Mustang will take home a rare vehicle and their bid will increase access to critical health care services.”
The proceedings from the auction will go to the Henry Ford Health System, which is a nonprofit group that aims to improve the health and well-being of the diverse community.
The movie will be releasing in USA on March 14, 2014.
