Ford rolled out the 2019 Mustang Bullitt edition at the 2018 NAIAS in Detroit last week. Pricing for the special edition Mustang hasn’t been revealed yet but the very first Bullitt Edition just sold for a fair bit above MSRP.
On Friday night at the 2018 Scottsdale Barrett-Jackson auction, the very first production 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt topped out at $300,000. That’s quite a lot of money for what is essentially a slightly more powerful green Mustang GT. Fortunately, all of the proceeds from the auction went to Boys Republic, a school specializing in at-risk kids that Steve McQueen of Bullitt fame also attended.
I doubt the prior Bullitt Mustangs from 2008 and 2001 garnered that much attention. It’s always interesting to see how much people will pay for a car with that kind of provenance.
While I’m glad the money went to charity, I’m not sure how I feel about this car selling for the price of eight standard Mustang GTs.
