Steve McQueen’s Bullitt Mustang Sells for a Record $3.4 Million Steve McQueen’s Bullitt Mustang Sells for a Record $3.4 Million! The hammer price was the most money ever spent on a Mustang at public auction, beating the previous record of $2.2 million for the 1967 Shelby GT500 Super Snake set at Mecum’s Kissimmee auction in 2019. This iconic Mustang made famous by Steve McQueen in the 1968 film, Bullit, has become one of the worlds most famous movie cars. The Bullit car is one of many McQueen machines to draw a big price with the help of his celebrity star dust. McQueen-associated vehicles have a history of fetching more than market rate! Owner Sean Kiernan, with his sister Kelly Cotton, drove the car across the auction block at Silver Spurs Arena and then addressed a crowd of about 25,000 before the bidding started. Sean explained that the auction bidding started at just $3,500 because that’s what his father paid for the vehicle back in 1974, it took just 11 minutes to reach its selling price of $3.4m. Not a bad profit for the family! At the time of the sale at the auction house, it was unclear who had purchased the vehicle. I’m sure its going to a good home, and its safe top say a very serious collector.
