At the current Detroit Auto Show, Ford has celebrated the 50th anniversary of the 1958 movie Bullitt and the car used there in a touching though theatrical way by revealing a limited-edition Bullitt version. Introduced by Molly McQueen, the granddaughter of Steve McQueen starring Lt. Frank Bullitt, the 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt pays tribute to the icon movie and fastbacks used there.
Underpinning the Mustang GT, the new edition rolls on classic-looking five-spoke 19-inch wheels with red Brembo calipers, and sits on a retuned 5.0-liter V-8 engine mated to a six-speed manual that pumps up to 475 horses and 420 pound-feet of torque.
And points to new Dark Highland Green Paint – in this hue, the Bullitt Mustang is definitely worth worked up over, what a stunning look! No stripes, no spoilers, and no badges – the special-edition boasts a unique blacked out front grille, a faux gas cap with the Bullitt logo and blackened exhaust tips, just enough for such an iconic look. The standard stuffing includes also the GT performance Package; it means customers will get a limited-slip rear differential, enhanced MagneRide suspension and braking system.
