For more information, or to register and bid on the new 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt up for charity auction, please visit Barrett-Jackson's auction listing.

Ford and the Steve McQueen estate are auctioning the first new Mustang Bullitt off the factory line to benefit Chino Hills, California-based Boys Republic, a private, nonprofit, nonsectarian school and treatment community for troubled youngsters.

Before the 2018 NAIAS opens to the public from January 20 to January 28 at the Cobo Center in Downtown Detroit, automakers show off new models and make world debuts in scheduled press conferences.

Exterior paint choices are limited to Shadow Black and the classic Dark Highland Green - as worn in the movie.

Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu meets baby Moshe at Nariman house in Mumbai
Moshe, who landed here this morning from Israel, went to the iconic Taj hotel in Colaba, and then proceeded to Nariman House. Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Thursday met top Indian CEOs at a business seminar in Mumbai .

Yet there's no such thing as a ideal product, and the new, 2019 Bullitt Mustang has a handful of (admittedly small) issues that, we feel, detract from its excellence. Satin black wheel centers would simply look more classic, and after all, isn't that the primary focus of a auto such as the Bullitt Mustang?

On Monday the automaker's head of global operations, Joe Hinrichs, announced that a new Mustang Shelby GT500 will find its way into showrooms next year. The current model of Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 boasts 526-horsepower.

This new package will draw modern Mustang fans, but the 1968 Bullitt Mustang parked next to it will attract a much larger number of automotive enthusiasts.

Ford made Mustang news here in Detroit with a third go at the Bullitt Mustang (a fourth if you count the original movie vehicle as the first), but the Blue Oval teased an even meaner pony vehicle on Monday evening of the 2018 Detroit auto show's press days. This is arguably the most famous movie Mustang ever while also being one of the most famous cars in American cinema history, so show-goers are sure to flock to the Ford display to see this piece of automotive history.
