The Highland Green 1968 Ford Mustang GT featured in the film “Bullitt" has sold at a Florida auction house for $3.74 million.

The Orlando Sentinel reports that Friday's sale at Mecum Kissimmee marks the most expensive Mustang ever sold.

Seller Sean Kiernan drove the car across the auction block at Silver Spurs Arena and then addressed a crowd of about 25,000.

Bidding surpassed $3 million in the first minute.

The top bid went back and forth between someone present and a bidder on the phone for several minutes before the mystery buyer on the phone won, agreeing to pay $3.4 million plus a 10 percent buyer’s premium.
