First 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt Sold For $300,000 At Auction

First 2019 Bullitt sold for $300,000 at auction

Ford rolled out the 2019 Mustang Bullitt edition at the 2018 NAIAS in Detroit last week. Pricing for the special edition Mustang hasn’t been revealed yet but the very first Bullitt Edition just sold for a fair bit above MSRP.

On Friday night at the 2018 Scottsdale Barrett-Jackson auction, the very first production 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt topped out at $300,000. That’s quite a lot of money for what is essentially a slightly more powerful green Mustang GT. Fortunately, all of the proceeds from the auction went to Boys Republic, a school specializing in at-risk kids that Steve McQueen of Bullitt fame also attended.

Prankster Fools Cops With Car Made Out Of Snow

Playing a prank on police officers is a good way to get arrested or worse, but when the prank is both harmless and hilarious the prankster behind the stunt may actually get props from the cops for pulling it off.

Simon Laprise is a cabinet maker and machinist from Montreal who likes to flex his artistic muscle in his spare time under the name L.S.D. Laprise Simon Design, and Simon sees every pile of snow as a possible sculpture:

“It was a beautiful day,” Laprise told VICE. “So I decided to do something out of the mountain of snow, to do a little joke to the snow guys, and have fun sculpting a car. It’s not my first one, just the first I do in the street on snow removal day.”

“To me snow is a great free material to sculpt anything out of.”

Simon sculpted a snow Delorean on a street where nobody is supposed to park in order to prank the cops, but as awesome as his sculpture is it was only able to fool the cops thanks to one small yet crucial detail- the windshield wiper.

The cops left a note under the wiper that said “You made our night” so I guess they’re not too mad about Simon parking his snow Delorean in a no parking zone.
