First Ford Mustang Bullitt Auctioned Off At $300000

In order to commemorate the movie, a limited supply of Mustang Bullitt editions will be available to the public, and Sherwood Ford is providing interested vehicle buyers with a way to reserve theirs. That's only a fraction of the amount that the first 2019 Corvette ZR1 got at the same auction, but either way the Mustang Bullitt raised a nice donation for the Boys Republic. Instead, a community school called the Boys Republic will get all the proceeds of the auction sale that the carmaker has set up.

The first 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt to roll out of production line has a new owner. It's a charity with serious meaning for the Steve McQueen Estate, since the man himself graduated from there in 1946.

That's providing the buyers have the driving skills to keep the Mustang Bullitt's 5.0-litre V8 in check and ensure the some 475 horsepower it's estimated to produce can be kept on the road and not wrapped around a tree or in a ditch. The 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt marks the fiftieth anniversary of classic movie, and just as Steve McQueen found with the original, it's proving to be mighty popular. Someone just paid $300,000 to drive home the muscle vehicle.

Then again, this is no ordinary pony vehicle.

The 2019 Bullitt will be on a six-speed manual transmission and is able to gain a maximum hustle of 163 miles per hour.

That's courtesy of an active valve performance exhaust system, together with an Open Air Induction System. Ford says it has an estimated top speed of 163 miles per hour. Then there's the detailing. Inside, there's a cue ball gearshifter top, a leather steering wheel, seats, and cabin trim, and the new Mustang's digital LCD cluster.

However, special editions of such cars are made in limited numbers and can retain and even increase their value, as the pool of available models dries up.
