Lot #1018 - The Ford Mustang FR500S is no ordinary Mustang, and this is no ordinary FR500S. SPX has joined forces with Ford Racing, Miller Motorsports Park, the Ford Racing High Performance Driving School, Stand 21, SPEEDCOM Communications, Capaldi Racing and Cragar Wheels to create a turn-key package that will take you from the bidding floor at Barrett-Jackson straight to the starting grid for the 2011 SCCA Pro Racing World Challenge Championship. The best part is that all proceeds from this sale will go directly to the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. SPX enlisted the renowned Capaldi Racing to modify this brand-new FR500S for duty in the SCCA Pro Racing World Challenge Championship. The Mustang has been inspected by the World Challenge Series to make sure it complies with their competition standards. Modifications include carbon fiber louvered hood, trunk and wing for less weight and better aerodynamics, Pirelli racing tires, Ford Racing Performance Parts including high-flow cylinder heads, camshafts, intake manifold, throttle body, oil pan, one-piece aluminum driveshaft, Brembo Racing Pro Series 4-piston brake calipers, plus 14" slotted discs and racing brake pads. Horsepower increase from 325hp to 400hp. The Ford Racing High Performance Driving School, the only official Ford Racing driving school, located at Miller Motorsports Park in Tooele, Utah, will put the winning bidder or their appointed driver through a 4-day race-training school that will result in a racing license accepted by the SCCA. SPX will provide a sponsorship package to the winning bidder to help fund your racing program. Add in a full complement of race wear from Stand 21 as well as pit equipment and tools, and the SPX Racing Experience will provide you everything you need to go racing in one of America's most competitive professional road racing series. The best part of all, while you're realizing your dreams, the kids at the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital will be realizing theirs. SPX would like to thank our partners at Barrett-Jackson, Ford Racing, the Ford Racing High Performance Driving School at Miller Motorsports Park, Capaldi Racing, Cragar Wheels, Stand 21 and SPEEDCOM Communications for their help in assembling this "Racing Experience" package. Although this FR500S Mustang has never been raced, Barrett-Jackson's own Gary Bennett put it through its paces and gave it a big thumbs-up.
