Ford Mustang Bullitt heads to the auction block today

Its unveiling of the revived 2019 Ranger made pickup fans' day; now it's muscle auto fanatics' turn to cheer, with the launch of the long-awaited Mustang Bullitt and the announcement of the new 2019 Shelby GT500. The auction will happen in Scottsdale, Arizona. The '66 Shelby is Lot 1406, and bids open Saturday, while the '87 Buick GNX goes up as Lot 1327 Saturday. Although specially tuned versions of rival cars have been offered since with more horsepower than the Dodge Hellcats can boast, nobody has yet come up with a straight production model to rival them.

Ford showcased the original vehicle from the 1968 movie alongside the new limited-edition 2019 Mustang Bullitt at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. Opt for the Bullitt Electronics Package, and buyers can add on features like navigation, memory seats, an upgraded sound system, and assorted driver assists.

The modern Bullitt's 5.0L V8 generates over 475 hp and 420 lb-ft of torque, and can attain a top-speed of 262 km/h.

"This new Bullitt is, as Steve McQueen was, effortlessly cool", said Darrell Behmer, Mustang chief designer. It has been owned by the same family since the movie studio sold it back in the early 70s, but the current owner was kind enough to bring the auto to Cobo Hall to display alongside the 2019 Bullitt Mustang. We're sure fans are scrambling to get their orders in at dealerships, but if you want to skirt past all that nonsense, don't worry-the very first example is being auctioned off for charity.
