The Shelby American Collection raffle has quite the prize to raffle off, a brand new 2014 Shelby Mustang GT500 Coupe -- or $50,000 in cash if you’d rather (but really, who’d take the money?). A minimum of 2,500 tickets must be sold for the raffle to take place and the proceeds from the ticket sales will be split in half between Shelby American Collection and the winning ticket holder.
Each ticket costs $50 and there is no limit on the amount of tickets per person. For every five tickets you buy, you’ll get one free ticket. While there is a minimum of 2,500 tickets, there is a maximum of 4,000. So the more tickets you buy, the more your chances of winning are increased. Tickets are on sale now and you can get them here at http://www.shelbymustangraffle.com/index.py.
If you haven’t heard of the Shelby American Collection Raffle, it is a fundraiser that benefits the Shelby American Collection car museum, a non-profit organization. This museum, located in Boulder, Colorado, is home to some of the greatest Shelby racing cars from all over the globe. Each raffle gives back 100 percent of the proceeds toward supporting the operation of the top-notch collection.
The winner will be announced on September 14, 2013 during the Shelby American Collection Annual Fundraising Party at the Boulder headquarters. You also do not need to be present to win. The winner can be notified by phone based on contact information provided at the time of ticket purchase.
The 2014 Shelby GT500 Mustang is powered by a 5.8-L supercharged V8 capable of 662 horsepower and 631lb-ft of torque off of the factory floor. The one up for grabs is Sterling Gray with Black Le Mans racing stripes, power dome hood with heat extractor and quarter window louvers. It features the Shelby Recaro leather sport seats and a Shaker 500 audio system with SiriusXM radio and SYNC. The car will feature the SVT Performance Package, which includes a Torsen differential, staggered forged aluminum wheels, cockpit-adjustable Bilstein electronic dampers, and an SVT-tuned suspension with unique shocks and springs.
It also comes with the SVT Track Pack, a Tremec 6-speed transmission, big Brembo brakes, adjustable traction control, and a 3 year/36,000 mile bumper-to-bumper Ford warranty.
Now, that’s a lot of car! Happy raffling!
