Today, dear Arabs GT followers, we will reveal the price of the most expensive Mustang car sold in history so far, it is also the most expensive American muscle car sold at an auction! We’re talking about a 1968 Ford Mustang muscle car.
And before talking about the 1968 Ford Mustang GT, which was recently sold at auction, we want to remind you that before the end of 2019, we presented our first test-drive of the 2020 Shelby GT500; the most powerful and fastest Ford production car yet, with our colleague Suhaib Shashaa in an episode of Special Coverage program.
Now, back to our topic, the 1968 Ford Mustang GT that starred in the Bullitt movie. This American car was sold on January 10th in MECOM auction for $ 3.4 million, or 12,750,000 Saudi riyals, which made it get the title of the most expensive Mustang in history so far.
The Ford Mustang, which co-starred Bullet movie, managed to withdraw the title of “the most expensive Mustang” from the 1967 Shelby GT500 Super Snake, which was sold last year in the same public auction for $ 2.2 million, equivalent to 8,250,000 SAR.
The shock was that the opening price at the auction of the 1968 Ford Mustang GT, the star of Bullet movie, was just $ 3,500, equivalent to 13,125 Saudi riyals! This extremely low price was set by the car’s owner Sean Kiernan, who requested the auction organizers to start the auction at this price specifically because the car was sold two times before for this simple price before it became now the most expensive Mustang in history after its price exceeded 3 million US dollars during one minute of bidding.
This old Mustang car starred in Bullet movie with the late actor Steve McQueen and the scenes were shot on the streets of San Francisco, USA.
