The car has been signed by Edsel B. Ford II, William C. Ford, Jr., and Alan
Mulally, CEO of Ford Motor Company.

The Mustang is the creation of Ford designer Melvin Betancourt, a former
cardiac patient who feels that he owes his life to a dedicated team of heart
surgeons at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit. To show his appreciation for the
care he received many years ago, Betancourt focused his talents on creating
the special edition Shelby GT500 to benefit the Edith and Benson Ford Heart &
Vascular Institute at the hospital.

Betancourt's Shelby stays true to the spirit of the original, but with a
modern, sophisticated level of performance and appearance. It is finished in a
special white exterior paint scheme, with contrasting white graphics and 20"
white wheels.

The racing-inspired cockpit features white leather Recaro seats with black

The Mustang has 662 horsepower, and a top speed of more than 200 mph. 

It is estimated that the car will sell between $150,000 and $250,000.
