GT350R

UPDATE: The Ford Mustang GT350R sold for $1 million at Barrett-Jackson’s auction in Scottsdale Arizona. Read the news here by our friends at Motor Authority.

We already know that the first production Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 is to be auctioned off Saturday night at Barrett-Jackson in Scottsdale, but we just learned today that you’ll also be able to bid on a track-ready, no holds barred GT350R version as well. Quick, grab your checkbook and board your Gulfstream, it’s time to go bid on some cars!

We already know that the GT350R is, quite frankly, insane. The car comes with awesome features, such as a radio delete, air conditioning delete, and more. Also, it’s Ford’s first attempt at building a car with carbon fiber wheels. If it’s designed to make a car go faster, it’s on the GT350R. If it’s not, it’s tossed in the rubbish bin.

We also know that it sounds amazing, and that it should give the Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 a run for it’s money on the racetrack. With an 8,250 RPM redline, the 5.2L flat plane crank V8 will absolutely scream at full throttle.

In Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs, there needs to be a new section located at the base of the pyramid called “Drive the GT350R.” It’s required more than food, shelter, or sex.

So how much will this extremely rare Mustang sell for? We expect the GT350R to command a price similar to the $75,000 Z/28. But for the first one that’ll probably never be driven?

We wouldn’t be surprised if $300,000 – $500,000 is the selling price tomorrow night. Of course, that money does go to charity.

How much do you think it’ll go for? Let us know in the forums!
