2014 Ford Shelby GT500 -- act of charity
In Reno (Nevada State of the U.S.A.), Parnelli Jones signed the last Shelby GT500, which has the power of 662 horsepower and accelerates from 0 km/h to 100 km/h just in 4 seconds. The car was bought for 500,000 dollars. The all profits of the Barrett-Jackson Auction came to the Association of Brain Injury in the United States (BIAA).
The participation in this charity auction of Jones is not accidental. He came into the charity after the suffering from the brain injury of his son, Page Jones, which he got in the Sprint Cup race.
The association of brain injury is very much obligated to Jones, the Ford brand and the Barrett-Jackson auction. The money from selling of Shelby will go for treatment of three and half million American people suffering from traumatic brain injuries.
There is not the first large charity auction of Barrett-Jackson. This year they sold the Stingray hardtop for one million dollars for creative studies of the Detroit University and the Ford Bronco of 69 for a half million dollars for Armed forces foundation.
