First 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt sells for $300K at charity auction

The very first 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt has sold for $300,000 at Barrett-Jackson's recently-concluded Scottsdale auction. 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.

The 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt comes heavily loaded, with the features of the GT Premium Fastback and the GT Performance Pack coming as standard equipment, along with the unique design features of the Bullitt package. The V8 is mated to a six-speed manual transmission.

The Mustang Bullitt will only come in either Shadow Black or the movie's Dark Highland Green. It's quite a special bit of kit, which you can read loads more about by magically transporting yourself to another internet portal via this mysterious blue link.

The auto on stage in Scottsdale was a preproduction unit, but the victor will be able to select whatever options they want on 2019 Bullitt Mustang VIN #0001. The entirety of that hammer price will go to benefit Boys Republic, "a private, nonprofit, nonsectarian school and treatment community for troubled youngsters".

MSU board of trustees continues to support university president
The board said it supported Simon, who has been in the spotlight in recent weeks during the ongoing Larry Nassar sex abuse trial. MSU has been plagued this week with accusations by victims that the school didn't listen to them when they reported the abuse.

Much like they did in Detroit for its reveal, the Dearborn, Michigan-based automaker brought a member of Steve McQueen's family on stage to introduce the auto.

The remaining Bullitt-edition Mustangs will go on sale this summer.

Earlier this year, the Ford Motor Company announced plans to release a limited-edition Ford Mustang Bullitt that pays homage to the 50-year anniversary of the classic movie, Bullitt.
