The rights to the very first 2015 Ford Mustang GT were auctioned off for charity on Saturday night during the annual Barrett-Jackson auction event in Scottsdale, Arizona. The bidding was intense, and the final bid came in at $300,000! The proceeds will benefit diabetes support group JDRF.

The Mustang team involved in the design and development will sign the car in appreciation of the donation to JDRF.
