Hurst Mustang Convertible Pace Car at Barrett-Jackson - Click above for high-res image gallery

Last year Hurst brought out their spectacular 50th Anniversary Dodge Viper to Barrett-Jackson, selling it for $275,000 to benefit their favorite charity, Victory Junction. They are back again for 2010, this time with the Mustang Convertible Pace Car that was actually used in the Mustang Challenge race series. The car was donated by Woodhouse Auto Family, Hurst Performance Vehicles and other suppliers to help children attend Victory Junction's newest Camp for Kids in Kansas City.

The car features plenty of performance upgrades including a Roush supercharger, Eibach suspension, Magnaflow exhaust, 20-inch Hurst wheels and a custom white interior. Being an official pace car, it's also got the cool light bar and headlights that can alternately flash. All of that combined with the motivation of charity brought a final bid of $120,000. You can read the vehicle's full description after the jump.

VEHICLE DESCRIPTION

The one and only original pace car for the Ford Racing Mustang Challenge Series. This original BFGoodrich HURST/Woodhouse Ford Mustang made its debut as the official pace car at the Ford Racing Mustang Challenge race on Sept. 19, 2009. This stunning HURST/Mustang pace car features massive 20" HURST polished, forged aluminum wheels with gold pointed center spokes wrapped in BFGoodrich g-Force KDW tires for maximum performance. The cars are distinctive, with painted gold racing stripes and official pace car logos on white. Each car has a special white convertible top, boot and interior. The exterior delivers HURST identity with subtle detailing and features including real metal badges and a unique HURST Air-Speed rear deck spoiler. The gold HURST T-handle shifter is the centerpiece of the interior for both manual and automatic cars and the seats and floor mats feature the famous HURST gold and black "H" logos. Handling and attitude are provided by Eibach, with HURST-tuned coilover shocks, springs and sway bars. Under the hood, the Roush Supercharged engine pounds out 435+hp and over 400 lb/ft of torque with Magnaflow custom-tuned stainless steel performance exhaust finishing off the sound and performance statement with authority. Donated by Woodhouse Auto Family, HURST Performance Vehicles and various suppliers to Victory Junction's newest Camp for Kids in Kansas City, KS.

      I'm not sure what it is, but there's something about the Hurst Gold that made a plain white Mustang look pretty damn good. Not wild about the rims, though.

      Puts my 1979 Mustang pace car to shame...
        • 4 Years Ago
        The rims are decent. At least they aren't ungodly ugly. I'm also not too fond of the Gold Pony, but it makes perfect since. idk. I'm kind of teetering on it honestly.

      ....supply and demand.
      • 4 Years Ago
      I'll never understood why someone would spend so much money for a $30k car.
      • 4 Years Ago
      I wonder what will happen to this thing, museum?
      .........I wonder if that is really a good investment..........
        • 4 Years Ago
        Yeah it's a write off even though they're getting something in return. Rich people do it all the time.

        Believe it or not, people do care about kids with cancer too...not just money.

        It's not about investment....it's about donating to a good cause and getting a car in return.

        @DE07GT
        perfect! A write off you can feel good about!
        win - win!
        is that "trickle down economics"?

        .........at this point, I think I need to take a nap.......I don't even know what I am talking about........
