Earlier this week, Battett-Jackson Auction Company auction in Scottsdale saw the first production 2015 Ford Mustang being auctioned for an astounding sum of $300,000 (Rs 1.9 crores).

This is the first production unit of the new 2015 Ford Mustang as it goes on sale this fall. The bid has allowed Ford Motor Company to increase their charity sales to over $3.5 million for JDRF, a noted diabetes research organization with which Ford has been partnering ever since 1983.

First Ford Mustang made its debut in April of 1964 and has since then been a ‘car designed to be designed by you’. With this in mind, Sam Pack will be able to customize the first production Ford Mustang with option of either manual or automatic transmission besides a variety of internal and external color options. As a special tribute to this 2015 Ford Mustang, the car will be personally signed by the team responsible for its design and development.

The first 2015 Ford Mustang receives a 5.0 liter V8 engine capable of 420 hp peak power and 390 lb/ft torque. Thanks to new front and rear independent suspension systems, the exclusive model is capable of better steering control and improved ride comforts while it also comes fitted with launch control.
