Carroll Shelby’s 1968 Ford Mustang - Black Hornet - $451k

Barrett-Jackson auctioned off Carroll Shelby’s 1968 Mustang Black Hornet as part of its annual Scottsdale sales event. This is a triple black Mustang, meaning its body, top and interior are all finished in the color. Underneath its hood lurks a 428 Cobra Jet V-8 mated to a four-speed manual that sends its 335 hp and 445 ft lbs of torque to the rear axle. Other performance upgrades include high-volume fuel pump, Holley carburetor, aluminum intake and heads, Mallory ignition and Griffin radiator.
The Black Hornet was Shelby’s tribute to the Mustang Green Hornet concept that he worked with Ford on in 1967. The car has 564 miles on the clock.
