2015 Ford Mustang GT #001 Sells for Roughly 10 Times the MSRP (Video)

The 2015 Ford Mustang has made big waves in the American auto industry since being introduced with its striking new exterior design but the controversy over the shape of the S550 Mustang headlights didn’t stop some devout Mustang fan from laying down an incredible $300,000 for the right to own the very first 2015 Mustang GT built.

The 2015 Ford Mustang was designed to compete on a global level and although the vast majority of the S550 Mustang is very similar to the current 2014 Mustang, the redesigned front end sporting a heavy dose of the Evos styling language that is also featured on the new Ford Fusion has drawn some harsh criticism from those folks who expected that the Mustang would forever look like the current (2104) models from front to back. Those self-appointed industry experts insist that the design of the 2015 Ford Mustang will hurt the sales numbers of the fabled pony car but the results of the Barrett Jackson auction for 2015 Mustang GT #1 indicated otherwise as a handful of bidders battled it out for the rights to buy the first ever S550 Mustang.

I look forward to the Mach 1 powered by the 5.8 liter 662 hp powerplant. Its unfortunate Ford didn't lighten the mustang down to 3400 lbs to make it a low 3 second machine. I hope the 2016 SRT Avenger coupe powered by the hellcat 6.2 liter 600 plus hp torque engine is on the Fiat 3400 lb platform. Pricing on both should be around $75k fully optioned.
