First 2015 Mustang to be Sold at Barrett-Jackson Auction

Ford Mustang at Barrett-Jackson

Hoping to be the first to get your hands on a 2015 Mustang?

Then you might want to check on the cost of flights to Scottsdale, Ariz., for the weekend of January 18, unless you already live in the area.

The first retail model of the new s550 will be sold at the annual Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale auction with proceeds benefiting JDRF, a leading organization for funding diabetes research.

“Ford Mustangs have always been among the most popular collector cars at Barrett-Jackson Collector Car events,” says Steve Davis, president of Barrett-Jackson Auction Company, in a Ford press release statement. “While every collector wishes they had snapped up the first Mustang sold in 1964, this is an opportunity to realize that dream in a different way.”

In addition to reveling in the fact they’ll have the first 2015 Mustang, the winning bidder will also have the opportunity to choose either a manual or automatic model as well as the interior and exterior color combination for the car.

If you’re planning on making an official bid on the car, be sure to have a whole lot of cash on hand.  The first 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray went for more than $1 million at last year’s Barrett–Jackson Auction and it wasn’t even an anniversary model.
