Last weekend’s 12th annual Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction was a huge home run on several fronts for Ford Motor Co., which had a strong presence at the South Florida event.

One of the star of the show was a totally tricked out 2013 , 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.
