Ford has revealed a limited edition Ford Mustang Bullitt during the 2018 Woodward Dream Cruise in Detroit, but it’s not going to be for sale. Ford wouldn’t take any amount of money for it, so put that check book away.

Instead, Ford is raffling the astonishing muscle car at $10 a ticket (up to a maximum of 60,000 tickets) with funds donated to benefit the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.

Founded in 1970, the JDRF fund type 1 diabetes research with the aim to improve lives and eventually eradicate the encumbering condition for good.

You can purchase tickets until November 8, with the winner announced on November 13. Fancy owning a Mustang destined for the history books without the crippling asking price? Here’s your chance.

What makes this Mustang different?

Needless to say, the JDRF Bullitt-edition Mustang is set to become something of an automotive urban legend. Showcased on Friday, August 17 at the Ford Media Club House before joining 1000 other pony cars on Mustang Alley during the Woodward Dream Cruise at the intersection of 9 Mile and Woodward Avenue in Ferndale, Michigan, we can bet that it will rarely surface in public

All the add-ons featured on all 2019 Mustang Bullitts, this JDRF Bullitt-edition Mustang has been painted Kona Blue and sports exclusive grey wheels along with tailored blue interior stitching. All other Mustang Bullitts are either black or Highland Green, making this example a true one-off.

The performance-tuned 5.0-litre V8 churns out 480bhp, which is good for a reported top speed of 163mph. Keeping in tone with Steve McQueen’s now legendary on-screen Mustang Fastback immortalised in 1968’s Bullitt motion picture, badging has been kept to a minimum, whereas the grille has been ‘blacked out’ and a special white cue ball gearshifter has been installed.
