2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 VIN 001 to be auctioned at Barrett-Jackson

That familiar scenario is set to repeat as Ford puts the very first production Shelby GT500 up for auction at the 2019 Barrett-Jackson event on January 18, 2019, in Arizona.

Rumors point to a version of the 5.2-liter engine found in the GT350 , minus that car's flat-plane crankshaft, topped with a 2.65-liter Eaton supercharger that pumps out 12 psi of boost.

We've heard reports of both six-speed manual and seven-speed dual-clutch gearboxes routing all that power to the rear wheels.

But they won't actually take possession of the car for a while – Ford says the 2020 Shelby GT500 will start filtering out to the public in the fall of 2019.

Ford says it donates more than $2 million annually to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, which is the charity that will receive proceeds from the GT500 bearing VIN 001.

The automaker has contributed a total of $60 million to the JDRF over the last 35 years.
