TAKE a good hard look at this Mustang Bullitt, because it is the only ‘Stang of its kind, and it’s being raffled for a good cause.

In America the Steve McQueen-inspired Mustang is available in just two hues, Highland Green and Shadow Black.

You’ll notice that this example isn’t presented in either colour, instead wearing a deep Kona Blue paintjob. And that’s what makes this Mustang Bullitt unique, as it’s the only one of its kind.

Revealed at the Woodward Dream Cruise in Detroit, the Kona Blue Bullitt will be auctioned for a charity raffle benefiting the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation in the US.

Ford will raise $600,000 (A$821,940) for the charity by selling 60,000 tickets at $10 (A$13.70) a pop ahead of the November 13 draw.

Further differing it from ‘standard’ ‘Stang Bullitts are grey wheels (instead of the traditional black), while the cabin will feature blue accent stitching.

Other than the visuals, the Kona Blue Bullitt is mechanically identical to its siblings, with 385kW being sent to the rear wheels via a 5.0-litre naturally aspirated V8 and six-speed manual transmission.
