RM Auctions, the world's largest collector car auction house, has announced plans to offer the 2004 Mustang GT-R Concept at annual Sports & Classics of Monterey sale on August 12th. The car is expected to sell for $250,000 to $350,000.
The GT-R Concept was originally introduced at the 2004 New York International Auto Show, as a tribute to the Mustang's 40th anniversary. It's powered by Ford's OHC modular V8 engine, mated to a TTC T-56 6-speed manual transmission, and delivers 440 hp (328 kW / 446 PS) and 400 lb-ft (542 Nm). It features a Ford Racing 'Cobra R' heavy-duty clutch and flywheel, a metal matrix composite aluminum custom driveshaft connected to a Winter's race-spec rear differential, Brembo brakes and rides on 20-inch wheels wrapped in Pirelli racing slick tires.
It comes painted in a bright Valencia Orange paint inspired by the Grabber Orange hue of the 1970 Boss 302 Trans Am cars.
An important point that one should keep in mind is that the GT-R Concept isn't DOT or EPA certified and therefore can't be registered for use on public roads.
Next to Mustang GT-R Concept, there are other notable cars listed for auction. These include the 2004 Lincoln Mark X Concept (estimated at $200,000 - $250,000), the 2003 Ford Supercharged Thunderbird Concept (estimated at $175,000 - $250,000), and the 1962 Lincoln Continental "Bubbletop" Limousine (estimated at $500,000 - $750,000) used by President John F. Kennedy.
