Of course you've always wanted to own a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series car, but how about one with a daunting 900 horsepower and 650 foot-pounds of torque?

You can now make that dream a reality, thanks to NASCAR Hall of Famer Rusty Wallace.

Wallace and his crew have built a sleek -- though, arguably not as sleek as his throwback Blue Deuce at last week's Preseason Thunder -- Ford Fusion to be put up for auction at the 43rd annual Barrett-Jackson Collector-Car event in Scottsdale, Ariz. starting Tuesday with all proceeds from the sale benefitting the NASCAR Foundation.

The two-seater is powered by a 427-cubic-inch big block engine built by Roush Yates Racing Engines, the same manufacturer that builds the Ford Cup Series engines. The auction closes at approximately 10 p.m. ET on Thursday on FOX Business.

Sprint Cup Series superstar Kyle Busch is also putting a couple of his cars up for sale in his 2006 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 and  his 1969 Chevrolet Camaro SS Coupe.
