First 2019 Mustang Bullitt Sells Big for Charity

First 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt sells for $300000 at Barrett-Jackson

There were no losers, however, as the cars were all sold for charity.

Making the 2019 Mustang Bullitt so desirable is the simple fact that it's been designed as a homage to the Mustang used in the famous McQueen film Bullitt. The entirety of that hammer price will go to benefit Boys Republic, "a private, nonprofit, nonsectarian school and treatment community for troubled youngsters".

The specific Mustang that was auctioned is VIN 001 of the new Bullitt. The Bullitt sold came in the classic Dark Highland Green exterior paint job with a black interior and manual transmission. The new limited edition Mustang comes with a 5.0-liter V8 engine capable of making 475 horsepower and 420-pounds of torque, not to mention a reported top speed of 163 miles per hour.

A lot, considering the limited-edition production one (which we're really hoping makes it over to these shores) will cost significantly less.

Those who've been following the Bullitt saga will recognize this auction listing as the one that gave away the Bullitt's surprise debut in Detroit.

The new Ford Mustang Bullitt may have been the hottest sports vehicle at the Detroit Auto Show, but a pair of Chevrolet Corvettes left it in the dust in the desert. The very first example of the auto rolled across the auction block for charity and raised a significant amount of money. 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.
