The one-off pony car is being raffled off for charity
Ford's Bullitt Mustang comes in Dark Highland Green (or in Shadow Black). It's the color that Steve McQueen's pony car wore in the cult classic movie that inspired the special edition, as well as those that have come in the years between. But this one wears a different color.
The Blue Oval automaker created this one-of-a-kind Mustang in Kona Blue as a fundraiser. Following its reveal this weekend at the Woodward Dream Cruise, Ford will raffle it off to benefit the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, with up to 60,000 raffle tickets being sold for $10 each.
If they all sell, that'd raise – quick calculation, carry the square-root of Pi – $600,000 for the foundation and its work.
In addition to the Kona Blue paintjob, the special Mustang rolls on a special set of gray wheels, and its interior is highlighted by blue stitching. Appearance aside, it's otherwise the same as the green Bullitt Mustang you can get from your local dealer. That includes a 5.0-liter V8 tuned to deliver a rather impressive 480 horsepower, making this particular version of Ford's popular sports car a rather potent package indeed.
The 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt edition is based on the GT Premium model and comes with the otherwise-optional Performance Package as standard. It also gets the intake manifold from the Shelby GT350, a larger throttle body, an active quad-tip exhaust system, 19-inch alloys, red Brembo brake calipers, and special trim. The badging has been almost entirely removed, save for the circular gas cap. And the interior is trimmed in leather with green accents – or blue, in this case. If you miss out on winning the raffle, you can still pick one up (in green or black) for $47,495 (delivered).
