Ford has recreated the iconic Mustang from the movie Bullitt in a modern Mustang.
In an attempt to breathe a bit more heritage and prestige into the current Mustang model, Ford has recreated the 1968 Mustang GT Fastback driven by Steve McQueen in the movie Bullitt. The special edition comes with a bit of a power hike taking the 5.0-litre V8 from 306 kW to 340 kW. Ford includes a new rev-matching technology, which is said to deliver smoother downshifts accompanied by an engine blip, and an active valve performance exhaust system enhances the V8’s signature burble.
To recreate the exterior of the Bullitt car, this Mustang includes 19-inch Torq Thrust-style wheels, red Brembo brake callipers and a faux BULLITT fuel-filler cap. The interior features Recaro sports seats, and each Mustang Bullitt will have an individually numbered plaque in place of the traditional Mustang emblem on the passenger-side dashboard. As a nod to the original car’s interior, the gear shifter features a white cue ball gearshift knob.
