The 2019 Mustang Bullitt, which features dark highland green exterior paint and chrome accents, is expected to be available this summer.
The newest Ford Mustang was created to be as cool as the one Steve McQueen drove in the film "Bullitt", but it probably won't make you as cool as him. As a designer, it's my favourite Mustang - devoid of stripes, spoilers and badges. "It doesn't need to scream about anything-it's just cool", he added.
It features some modifications for its 5.0-liter V8 engine, including an Open Air induction, 87 mm throttle bodies and a Shelby GT350 intake manifold. It was made known that Canada will get standard some features that are options in the USA, including an electronics package with navigation and safety features, and a semi-active suspension system Ford dubs MagneRide. Making this all the more special is the fact that the woman behind the wheel is none other than Molly McQueen, granddaughter of Bullitt himself.
The power of the 2019 Mustang Bullitt is fantastic, but its aesthetics also serves as great homage to McQueen's Bullitt vehicle.
The rumours and speculation were right: Ford has made a new Bullitt Mustang, and here it is!
Recaro seats with green stitching are an option.
This is the third special edition model that Ford will release to commemorate the iconic vehicle of the film.
"It's bad-ass", she said.
The stunt auto from the film was found in the U.S. past year (though it had originally been sent to a salvage yard after filming), but the one driven by McQueen was believed to have been lost to history. "It just kind of happened with life".
Kiernan says he'll never sell his auto, even though it's practically priceless.
The special edition Mustang pays homage to the movies' most famous Pony Car; comes with 482hp and is capable of hitting a claimed 262kph.
Every motor show features new cars restricted to certain markets, but the U.S. has more than most.
The 1968 movie is remembered for a classic chase scene, 10-minutes of McQueen powering the Mustang through the hilly streets of San Francisco.
