In reality, the 2021 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 needs no introduction. Most everyone already knows that this is the ultimate pony car currently on sale, the most powerful ever produced by Ford, and the most capable Ford Mustang available. The only real downside to the GT500 is its price, which begins at $70k and can climb to six figures when optioned properly. However, this 2021 Shelby GT500 raffle from the Shelby American Collection is going to give someone the chance to bring one home for far less than that.
The Shelby American Collection, a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, is conducting the Shelby GT500 raffle to support its historic automotive museum in Boulder, Colorado, which has some of the most important American racing cars ever made on display, along with an extensive collection of race records, photographs, and memorabilia from the pioneer drivers and visionaries of the era including Carroll Shelby, Ken Miles, Dan Gurney, Bob Bondurant, Phil Hill, Allen Grant, Phil Remington, and other Shelby American Team members.
Thus, the money spent on this Shelby GT500 raffle goes to a fantastic cause, while the winner will receive an amazing car – sounds like a win-win to us. The 2021 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 up for grabs is powered by Ford’s 5.2L Predator V8, which produces 760 horsepower and 625 pound-feet of torque, which flows to the rear wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.
The Rapid Red beauty is also loaded with options including the Carbon Fiber Track Package with exposed carbon wheels, the Technology Package, and painted white stripes. And if all of that isn’t enough, the raffle winner will also receive $25,000 to pay for taxes and a trip to the GT500 Track Attack experience at Ford’s Performance Racing School.
The GT500 raffle is open now through September 4th, 2021, at which time the lucky winner will be chosen. Those interested in participating can donate anywhere from $25 to $2,500 by heading over here, and using the promo code FORDAUTHORITY will net them bonus entries, too. The more one chooses to donate, the more bonus entries one receives. And who knows? This amazing GT500 might just wind up in one of our reader’s garages this fall.
