The Showstopper of Montana's Classic Car Auction.
The Montana Classic Car Auction is no stranger to stunning vehicles, but the 2021 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 promises to be a showstopper at this year's 11th annual event. Don't let the "classic car" label fool you—this modern marvel encapsulates cutting-edge performance and sleek design.
Beyond Horsepower: Unlocking the GT500's Potential
Though all Shelby GT500s are exceptional, this one goes beyond the usual prowess. What makes this GT500 distinct is its Carbon Fiber Track Pack, a series of upgrades that push its performance to the limit:
- Supercharged Predator 5.2L V-8 engine with 760 horsepower
- 20-inch carbon-fiber wheels
- Aerodynamic enhancements
- Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires
- Weight-saving modifications
A Rare Gem: One of the Few "Golden Ticket" Cars
Amidst supply chain shortages, fewer than 5,000 GT500s rolled off the production line in 2021. Of those, only about 1,700 featured the Carbon Fiber Track Pack. Even more exclusive, an estimated 39% were optioned with deleted stripes, creating what are now known as "Golden Ticket" cars. This particular GT500, VIN 1FA6P8SJ2M5503246, is among these exclusive ranks.
Aesthetic and Performance: Excellence in Every Detail
Finished in a sleek Shadow Black with deleted stripes, this GT500 looks as powerful as it is. The car features:
- Rear seat delete for weight-saving
- Exposed carbon-fiber wheels
- Massive carbon-fiber wing
- Cobra lamps, badging, and stitched seating
- An engine that comes with the personal signature of its builder
Lavish Interiors for the Modern Driver
Inside, the luxury continues. Black leather-trimmed RECARO seats provide a sporty yet comfortable experience. A Carbon Fiber Interior Trim Package enhances the aesthetics, and the Technology Package takes it up another notch:
- 12-speaker Bang & Olufson sound system
- Ford’s Blind Spot Information System
- Heated exterior mirrors with integrated turn signals
- Cobra LED ground lamps
- Voice-activated touchscreen navigation system
- Six-way adjustable driver’s seat
A distinct dash plaque identifies the vehicle's unique badge number, M2616, adding yet another layer of exclusivity.
This 2021 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 is more than just a car; it's an embodiment of modern performance meeting classic sensibilities. With its powerful engine, luxury interiors, and elite status as a “Golden Ticket” car, this GT500 is poised to be one of the most sought-after vehicles at the Montana Classic Car Auction. Buyers aren't just investing in a car; they're investing in a high-performance, limited-edition piece of automotive history.
