First 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt Brought $300K for Charity

Ford Motor Company has sold the first 2019 Mustang Bullitt for a cool $300,000 at auction. The first car was sold at the 2018 Scottsdale Barrett-Jackson auction on Friday night, just a week after its debut at the Detroit Auto Show.

Thus far Ford hasn’t even revealed the price tag for the new Bullitt, but its a safe bet $300-large is a little above list price. After all, the Bullitt is effectively a slightly more powerful Mustang GT dressed in Dark Highland Green.

Part of the reason the car brought so much is likely because 100-percent of the proceeds go to charity. Specifically, the cash will go to Boys Republic, a school that assists at-risk kids. Steve McQueen himself attended the school.

So far there’s no word on who actually purchased the first 2019 Bullitt. Nonetheless, details of the auction can be found on Barrett-Jackson’s listing here.
