One of the star cars of the show was a totally tricked out 2013 Ford Mustang, which was used in the actual making of the “Need For Speed” movie and is just like the one used in the video game of the same name. The high-performance custom Mustang sold for $300,000 to Dave Flynn of the Flynn Automotive Group in Youngstown, Ohio. All of the proceeds went to benefit the Henry Ford Health System.Barrett-Jackson, Cars, Ford, Ford Mustang, Mustang, Palm Beach
The “Need For Speed” 2013 Ford Mustang movie car jumped to the top of the sales charts, at least temporarily, with an emotional, high-energy $300,000 sale Saturday afternoon at 12th annual Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach Collector Car Auction.

During Barrett-Jackson’s annual collector car auction at Palm Beach on Friday, Steve Magnante put a blindfold on Robert Van Winkle (aka. Vanilla Ice), to see if he could identify a 5.0 Mustang just from the feel of it.

The 2015 Ford Mustang is yet to reach showrooms but the people at Whipple Superchargers have already developed a 700-horsepower upgrade for it, according to a leaked press release. This has likely been made possible because the upgrade is designed for the 2015 Mustang GT, whose 5.0-liter V-8 is a carryover from the outgoing model.
The upgrade consists of a 2.9-liter twin-screw supercharger, which is said to have 99 percent volumetric efficiency and is designed to be installed with very little modification to the engine. The upgrade also includes an air-to-water intercooler, high-flow fuel injectors, a high flow intake and exhaust system, and retuning of the ECU.Cars, Ford Mustang
