Fifty-six bids had pushed the price to $102,500 this morning, with Hampton Downs and Highlands owner, Tony Quinn, adding a 12-month GT membership last night.

The membership allows the winner of the auction to race for free on the Hampton Downs and Highlands circuits for a year and is worth $14,500. Before the addition of the membership, the package was worth more than $115,000.

The Mustang is being auctioned by John Andrew Ford and Mazda. John Andrew ran a series of polls last year to determine New Zealand’s favourite Mustang and its features, which was used to ‘upgrade’ the Camp Quality Mustang with the top-voted packages.

The Mustang features manual transmission in magnetic colour, and is equipped with BM13 Savini D cast forged alloy wheels. It is also fitted with a CTB/Ford Performance Racing Stage 3 power upgrade package, which produces 500kW of power.

Proceeds from the $1 reserve Trade Me auction will go to Camp Quality. The auction closes at 10pm tonight.
