Ford introduced their new 2011 Mustang a few weeks ago in Detroit. The new 2011 Ford Mustang GT is the Official Pace Car at this year’s 52nd Daytona 500.
Ford also announced that they will be building 50 replicas of the car, but the actual pace car has been auctioned off for charity at the Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction in Scottsdale. All proceeds from the auction are to be donated to the Juvenile Diabetes Research.
The 2011 Mustang GT, powered by the all-new 5.0-liter V-8 engine, officially starts the race on Feb. 14 at Daytona International Speedway.
