The most expensive Mustang in the world is the one used in the Bullit movie. The car driven by Steve McQueen in the 1968 film sold at auction for $ 3.4 million. With taxes, the cost of a fastback reaches $ 3.74 million. The most expensive Mustang to date was the Shelby GT500 Super Snake, built in 1967. The car was purchased last year by a mysterious buyer for $ 2.2 million.
The car, which has never been restored, carries the color Highland Green, as well as traces of rust and a few scratches specially made during filming to make it look authentic in what the film industry values as the first modern car tracking scene. For 10 minutes, Lt. Frank Bullitt, played by Steve McQueen at the wheel of this Mustang, chases a Dodge Charger on San Francisco.
The model sold at an auction organized by casa Mecum Auctions, one of the two used in the film, is equipped with a 6.4-liter V8 engine that develops 325 horsepower. The drive is connected to a manual transmission with four gear ratios. Three metal tubes were welded under the side sills to support the cameras, ensuring that those who follow the images feel they are directly involved in the action. After filming, the car ended up in the garage of a Warner Bros. employee.
