Ford has announced the 2014 Mustang from the Need for Speed movie will go under the hammer at the Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach Auction on April 12th.

Created specifically for the movie, the car has been equipped with a custom wide body kit that includes a new front bumper and extended side skirts. The model also has a "twin-snorkel" hood, angel-eye fog lights and 22-inch Forgiato alloy wheels.

According to Ford North America car marketing manager Steve Ling, “Director Scott Waugh challenged our team to give this central character enough personality and American masculinity to take on some of the world’s most exotic cars, just like in the popular Electronic Arts video game that inspired the movie." He went on to say “The new owner of this particular Mustang will take home a rare vehicle and their bid will increase access to critical health care services.”

Speaking of the latter, proceeds from the auction will benefit the Henry Ford Health System which is a nonprofit group that aims to improve the health and well-being of the community.
