While the recent Need for Speed movie may not have been a blockbuster mega-hit, the appeal of the sweet car action scenes is undeniable… especially those that feature the Ford Mustang. The blue and white hero from the film, the Need for Speed Ford Mustang, was recently auctioned off for charity, and we’re pretty envious of the winning bidder who now gets to add it to his collect (along with some some good karma).
The Barrett Jackson Palm Beach Auction sold the 2014 Ford Mustang GT for $300,000, with all the proceeds benefiting the Henry Ford Health System, a nonprofit group that serves underprivileged families around Michigan.
Dave Flynn, owner of the Flynn Automotive Group in central Ohio, placed the winning bid. It’s worth noting that this was the same man who purchased the 2015 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 for $500,000 at the same auction.
“Watching the car cross the block in support of Henry Ford Health System was very rewarding,” said Sandy Hudson, chief development officer for the organization, in a statement. “Dave Flynn did much more than just purchase a new car. His purchase will help so many people get access to healthcare.”
