2019 Mustang Bullitt Celebrates Film’s 50th Anniversary
At this year’s North American International Auto Show, Ford introduced the limited-edition Mustang Bullitt, based off of the original 1968 Mustang GT fastback which starred with Steve McQueen in the award-winning movie “Bullitt.”
Mustang fans will soon be able to own one of the most iconic movie cars in cinema history updated for modern drivers. The Mustang Bullitt features classic Dark Highland Green exterior paint, subtle chrome accents, a 12-inch all-digital LCD instrument cluster and available RECARO black leather-trimmed seats with unique green accent stitching.
The Mustang Bullitt celebrates the 50th anniversary of the iconic movie and its famous San Francisco car chase against a Dodge Charger. To introduce the third-generation Bullitt, a third-generation of the McQueen family, Molly, starred in a special movie where the Mustang Bullitt races through a parking structure battling a Charger for the final free space.
An upgraded 5.0-liter V8 engine comes standard, with 475 hp, 420 lb-ft of torque and an impressive top speed of 163 mph. All limited-edition Mustang Bullitt models are equipped with a manual transmission that features a white cue ball shift knob in reference to the original car.
Optional features for the 2019 Mustang Bullitt include navigation, an upgraded sound system, Blind Spot Information System with Cross-Traffic Alert, MagneRide semi-active suspension and the RECARO black leather-trimmed seats.
