For Henry Ford Health System, Betancourt wanted to create a one-of-a-kind Shelby that was true to the spirit of the original, but with a modern, sophisticated level of performance and an appearance to match. The car features unique white exterior paint and contrasting white graphics. Twenty-inch white wheels add to a look that is nothing short of breathtaking.
The racing-inspired cockpit boasts special white leather Recaro seats stitched with a black contrast thread for a truly unique look to complete an overall design theme that is worthy of this legendary car’s outstanding heritage. With uncompromised performance, handling and luxury, the 2013 Shelby GT500 will satisfy the most sophisticated and discerning automotive enthusiast.
“Even with his rich racing pedigree, it’s hard to imagine what Henry Ford might have thought had he ever encountered such a massively powerful vehicle as the 2013 Shelby GT500,” said John Felice, general manager for Ford and Lincoln Marketing. “However, we’re fairly certain he’d be thrilled the car carries the Ford oval, and that this unique edition is being auctioned to support the critically important work of saving lives.”
