Lot #1262.1 2005 FORD MUSTANG FR500C BARRETT-JACKSON EDITION
Lot #1262.1 - The FR500C is a non-VIN, non-production, non-streetable factory hand built, race ready Mustang road racecar from Ford Racing. A rare Barrett-Jackson edition in blue, never raced and never driven except for display purposes. This was the first time since the 1960's that Ford has offered turn-key race cars for sale. It was designed and built to compete in the Grand American Series Gran Sport class, and compete just doesn't describe its performance. It wins races and championships. The first car was delivered to the customer on February 2, 2005, then three days later, won the season opening Grand Am Cup race in Daytona. FR500C's continued to garner four more victories en route to sweeping the Team, Drivers and Manufacturers championships for 2005. Similar models have won the manufacturers title in the Koni Challenge racing series in 2005, 2008 and 2009. An incredible, unprecedented achievement. These cars were offered in the Ford Racing Performance Parts catalog with their own part number, 28 total built. They are hand-built from the ground up, not modified from a car that came off the assembly line. Tremendous engineering went into the FR500C program to make competition race cars. Key aspects include the chassis/integrated roll cage and also the purpose built R50 "Cammer" engine. Much of the technical information that was gained from the FR500C program was subsequently used to develop the 2006 Shelby GT500 road car. Powered by a 5.0L "Cammer R50" engine, it delivers 420hp. It includes a Tremec T56 6-speed transmission and other race-spec parts including a Grand Am-spec rollcage. It is permitted to be used in the Grand Am Grand Sport (GS) Class.
