Almost every car enthusiast tunes into the live Barrett-Jackson auctions to see just how high some of their dream cars may fetch, or possibly there to buy it. A lot of the cars that come through bring in huge bucks for charity.

This customized White Shelby GT500 with the final bid being $150,000. While most of these cars go far beyond their MSRP value, a lot of them donate to a good cause just like this one. All proceeds from this bid will benefit the Henry Ford Hospital for the Edith and Benson Ford Heart and Vascular Institute. This man who built this car, Ford Designer Melvin Betancourt, had his life saved at this hospital and wanted to give something back. He felt like he owed them something. What a great way to give back.

This Mustang features 20-inch white wheels, a custom white pint job with subtle white stripes, and lets not forget the decked-out interior with white leather Recaro seats with black stitching for some contrast. Of course we all know that the power plant under the hood of the new 2013 Shelby GT500 is an engine that makes a crazy 662 horsepower and a Mustang reaching speeds over 200mph.

This Stang is one car that backs up the looks with performance and vice versa. The engine is signed by Edsel Ford II, Bill Ford Junior and Alan Mullaly.

What do you think of this one-off 2013 Shelby GT500? This baby will definitely turn a few heads rollin’ down the road.
