  • Ford Mustang Bullitt #001 will be auctioned for charity

Back in 1968, the legendary Steve McQueen and his Ford Mustang Bullitt chased down a Dodge Charger through San Francisco, putting his ride into film history, and vehicle history forever.

At the 2018 North American International Auto Show now underway in Detroit, Ford has made happy campers of many an automotive fan.

Michael Wolff's Donald Trump Book "Fire and Fury" to Become TV Series
Melania Trump, who had been assured by her husband that he wouldn't become president, could return to inconspicuously lunching. The book's publisher made that announcement during a gathering of journalists and media-industry luminaries on Wednesday night.

On Friday, Ford will auction off the 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt with VIN 001 at Barrett-Jackson's annual Scottsdale Auction.

The last GT500, built during model years 2013 and 2014, had a 5.8-liter supercharged V8 that produced 662 hp and 631 pound-feet of torque, as well as a top speed of 200 miles per hour.

Walker: Election is a wake-up call
Croix County medical examiner since 2011 and has served as a leader on local mental health- and addiction-related initiatives. Sheila Harsdorf held the seat from 2001 until November when she resigned to become Walker's agriculture secretary.

Ford already caught the industry napping a little by unexpectedly announcing the Mustang Bullitt at this year's Detroit Auto Show, but some commentators had hoped the Blue Oval would have been bolder and gone further by revealing a new Shelby GT500. The 12-inch LCD instrument cluster is standard, but the Bullitt package includes a unique start-up screen, and that high tech gauge setup is paired with Ford's premium infotainment system. On the other hand, it mimics the original in foregoing badging, spoilers and decorative strips. However, the 840-hp Dodge Challenger SRT Demon will remain the most powerful American muscle vehicle. Nope. In 2019, the Mustang Shelby GT500 will come back with over 700 hp horsepower on tap. Estimated top speed is listed at 163 miles per hour (262 kilometers per hour), and all that power comes paired to a six-speed manual transmission.
