At some point in time, the Shelby Mustang GT500 Convertible will be a collector’s piece that will likely cost a pretty penny, especially if it’s the last ever produced.
But that’s well into the future, probably decades away from now.
At the present time, though, the final 2014 Shelby Mustang GT500 Convertible still commanded plenty of attention at the recent Hot August Nights Auction presented by Barrett-Jackson. The whole auction was a resounding success with total sales numbers eclipsing $14.2 million.
As expected, the biggest contributor to that total was the final 2014 Shelby Mustang GT500 Convertible, accounting for $500,000 when the hammer fell on its auction. That may seem like a steep price to pay for a car that routinely costs at a little over a tenth of the price that this unique model fetched in the auction.
That being said, nobody else can lay claim to owning the last ever produced Shelby Mustang GT500 and besides, as the last of the lot, the winning owner now has the opportunity to completely customize the car to its full bloom.
At some point in the future, this model could very well be worth way more than the half-a-million the winning bidder paid for the right to own it.
