FORD MUSTANG GT350R-C
This is one of three GT350R-C race cars that were manufactured by Multimatic Engineering (whom Ford contracts to build all of their race cars as well as the road-going versions of the new Ford GT), and is the only one that will ever be offered for sale – one was destoryed in a racing incident and the other is owned by Ford and is part of their permanent collection.
It competed in IMSA’s Continental Tire Sportscar Challenge in 2015 as the No.158 car (driven by Jade Buford and Austin Cindric, winning at Mosport) and in 2016 as our No.76 (piloted by Paul Holton and Pierre Kleinubing, with best finishes of second (at Daytona) and third (at Mosport and Circuit of the Americas), winning the Manufacturer’s Championship for Ford.

As a race car, is was developed for use on closed course race tracks and can never be titled for the street. It features a race-tuned BOSCH ECU, ABS, Multimatic DSSV suspension and a Roush-Yates 6.2L V8 with a flat-plane crank making approximately 500hp. It has a full roll-cage and all of the required safety equipment. The car has been completely refreshed and is ready to show or race.
Its livery features a painting by philanthropic artist Jeff Hanson (who suffers from neurofibromatosis, which has rendered him legally blind) in support of the Race Day Foundation, a charity that brings children suffering from life-changing illness and their families to the race track for an inspiring day away from their regular routine. Their board of directors is a veritable who’s who of sportscar racing https://www.racedayfoundation.org/about.
Asking price is US$195,000. For reference, Multimatic's first-generation of this current run of Mustang race cars, the FR500-C, sold for over $400,000 at Barrett-Jackson a few years ago. This GT350R-C is demonstrably more rare.
