The first 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 was assembled in October 2019. It has already been auctioned for charity at the 2019 Scottsdale Auction, and was purchased by Craig Johnson for $1.1million.
The owner, who is elated with his auction win, said, “In making this request, I truly had no idea what an extraordinary undertaking it was, but BASF and the paint specialists at Penske went above and beyond to make that happen. The entire team at Ford went out of their way to help my dream become a reality, and I couldn’t be more grateful.”
This car was meant to pay homage to the 1968 Shelby EXP Prototype. To get the exact shade of green on that car, they had to mix two green paints. It has a Lime Green base coat and a Candy Apple Green outer. It’s safe to say that this shade isn’t available in the markets. The car has EXP500 lettering in the white stripe along the bottom and body-colour-painted mirrors. All other GT500s have black painted mirrors.
There are no plans to manufacture this car and make it available in shops. But the green shade looks dreamy, and we hope to see it on sale soon.
