Mind you, the information posted a few weeks back about a "special new Mustang" was what essentially tipped us all off to the arrival of the new Bullitt edition package, so this was the most talked-about vehicle being sold at this year's Scottsdale auction before any bidding began.

Ford donated Mustang Bullitt VIN 001 to the Barrett-Jackson vehicle auction in Scottsdale, Arizona, and reports it sold for $300,000 to benefit Steve McQueen's former school for troubled youths in the Boys Republic.

Leno also got a chance to drive the new 2019 Bullitt Mustang tribute auto, and concluded that the new vehicle still gives you the same feeling you get from the movie. 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 remaining Bullitt-edition Mustangs will go on sale this summer. The V8 is mated to a six-speed manual transmission. Final power numbers will be announced closer to the arrival of the vehicle in dealerships, but we know that the 2019 Bullitt will offer more power than the 2019 Mustang GT. Coming standard on the 2019 Mustang Bullitt is a heated steering wheel that will be flawless for any early-autumn drives when the air is on the chilly side.

Every penny of that money is going to the Boys Republic school for troubled youth, the very school Steve McQueen attended. A school which Steve McQueen himself graduated from in 1946.
