The very first example of the 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt sold at the Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale sale for $ 300,000. All this money will go to the Boys Republic non-profit school for troubled youth.
We do not know yet what the special edition model will retail when it goes on sale later this year, but you can count on much less than the auction price for this auction. Although $ 300,000 is a lot to pay for a Mustang, the new owner has the satisfaction of knowing that he or she has the very first copy (VIN 001) of the new Mustang Bullitt. The 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt features a 5.0-liter modified V-8 Coyote that delivers 475 horsepower and 420 lb.-ft. of torque, an increase of 15 horsepower over a standard GT. It also has a six-speed manual gearbox with a gear selector, leather-trimmed Recaro seats, Highland Green paint, Bullitt badges and all the goodies from Performance Package 1. The Bullitt will be a production model limited. the size of the race has not been announced yet.
Those who followed the Bullitt saga will recognize that this auction was the one that gave Bullitt\’s surprise debut in Detroit. When it was discovered in early January, the ad describes a “new Ford Mustang Special,” and said that 100 percent of the proceeds from his sale would go to charity. Automakers are systematically auctioning the first example of a new charity model, and the charity in this case was quite specific and unusual. Steve McQueen, a 1968 Bullitt star, attended Boys Republic and stayed with the school long after graduating, so it was enough to connect the dots to understand what Ford had in store.
