To celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the film Bullitt, at the Geneva Motor Show Ford Unveiled a special edition Mustang, The Bullitt.
The date was 19th June 1970, viewers sat down to see Steve McQueen in one of the most iconic car chases in film history, in non-other than a green Ford Mustang. Now on the 50th Anniversary, Ford has re-designed the Mustang to give it that film feel.
Modelled on the 5.0 Litre Mustang, the Bullitt has a 458 bhp and 388lb ft- 14bhp more than the standard Mustang’s 444bhp. It can reach a top speed of 163mph and will be available in the UK with a 6-speed manual gearbox.
Taking most of its styling features from the 1968 Mustang used in the film, it features 60’s styled chrome surround on the front grille and windows. You have the option of a shadow black colour, but to really get that Bullitt look you can get it in the iconic Dark Highland Green.
With 19” torque thrust gunmetal aluminium wheels, red brake callipers and a black front grille the Bullitt is sure to give you the look and feel Mustang is synonymous with.
On the inside, Ford have added small details to honour the movie, from the green stitching to the 8-ball gear stick and the Bullitt logo on the steering wheel. The Mustang also has a unique Bullitt Electronic Package which includes SAT NAV, premium sound system, Blind spot detection and cross traffic alerts.
With limited production, the Mustang Bullitt is set to come to the UK This summer.
