Ford Builds One-Off Mustang Bullitt Kona Blue For Charity

Ford has used the Woodwood Dream Cruise to unveil a one-off Mustang Bullitt that features a Kona Blue exterior.

Designed to benefit the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, the model ditches the familiar Dark Highland Green paint job for a brighter blue exterior. The car has also been equipped with special wheels and a lightly modified interior that has blue contrast stitching.

While the changes aren’t very drastic, the car is being put to good use as it raise funds to fight type 1 diabetes. As part of this effort, Ford and the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation are selling up to 60,000 raffle tickets for $10 (£8 / €9) each. The raffle tickets are currently on sale and can be bought online here. Tickets will be sold until November 9th and the winner will be selected on November 13th.

While the Mustang doesn’t feature that many special touches, it includes all the usual Bullitt upgrades. As a result, the car comes equipped with an active performance exhaust, a limited-slip rear differential and a Brembo braking system with red calipers.

Power is provided by an upgraded 5.0-liter V8 engine that produces 480 hp (358 kW / 486 PS) and 420 lb-ft (568 Nm) of torque. It is connected to a six-speed manual transmission which enables the coupe to hit a top speed of 163 mph (262 km/h) which is 8 mph (12 km/h) faster than the Mustang GT.

This isn’t the first time the Mustang Bullitt has been used to raise funds for charity as the first model was auctioned off to benefit the Boys Republic. When bidding end, the car was sold for $300,000 (£235,183 / £262,042).
