Barrett-Jackson will auction off a 2007 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Super Snake later this month with all proceeds to benefit a fund supporting Las Vegas first responders.
This Shelby Super Snake has been donated by the president of the auction house, Steve Davis and was originally owned by former Ford chief executive Mark Fields. It was also just the seventh unit to be built as a 2007 model and transformed under the close eye of Carroll Shelby himself and is the highly-coveted 40th anniversary model.
Beneath the attractive blue and white paintwork, this unique Shelby Super Snake is powered by a 5.4-liter supercharged V8 engine with 605 hp. The muscle car also has six-piston Baer brakes, upgraded suspension, a new cat-back exhaust and an aluminum driveshaft.
In a statement, Barrett-Jackson chairman and chief executive Craig Jackson said the company was left heartbroken after the shooting in Las Vegas.
“All of us at Barrett-Jackson are heartbroken over the tragic event in Las Vegas Sunday night. Like many people around the country, this event hit close to home. We are returning to Las Vegas for our 10th annual auction to stand by our partners… This car will sell during our live broadcast on Discovery Channel on Saturday, and is one of the many steps we are taking to stand with Las Vegas at this difficult time.”
