Ford Mustang Bullitt Retrospective Makes Us Green With Envy

Ford Mustang Bullitt

The all-new Mustang Bullitt™ is equipped with a manual transmission, and the gear shifter features a white cue ball shift knob as a nod to the original.

Darrell Behmer, Mustang chief designer, said: "This new Bullitt is, as Steve McQueen was, effortlessly cool". This makes it even more powerful than the latest Mustang GT by 14bhp, while its top speed is 8mph higher, too. "It has to have the right attitude, it has to be unique in some way from a Mustang GT, and more than anything, it has to be bad ass". Similar to the Mustang in the movie, the limited edition vehicle has no badges, spoilers, or stripes.

The green paint, the wheels, the functional yet elegant leather interior, it all speaks to that understated cool that Steve McQueen had in spades and is why the auto itself has become just as iconic.

The 2018 Australian Open is just around the corner and that means it's time for the all-important draw to be announced. Here is the list of players who have been struggling with fitness in the lead-up to the first Grand Slam of the year.

Under the hood, the Mustang sports proper muscle vehicle power as well, with a 5.0-litre V8 capable of kicking out some 475bhp and 420lb ft of torque. The Mustang Bullitt also gets an active valve performance exhaust system with Black NitroPlate exhaust tips, Open Air Induction System, and the Shelby GT350's intake manifold. After filming ended, the cars went their separate ways: the hero vehicle driven by the late Steve McQueen in the movie was sold by Warner a private buyer called Robert M. Ross, while the other was sent to a salvage yard. The vehicle, due out this summer, also features a new air induction system Ford calls the Open Air Induction System, and the Bullitt also borrows the intake manifold and ECU from the Shelby GT350.

Used in numerous jumps during the famous chase scene with the 1969 Dodge Charger, that jumper vehicle resurfaced in Baja California, Mexico in early 2017.

It was long presumed lost, but the 1968 Mustang GT fastback in fact changed hands a few times, an ultimately was inherited by Sean Kiernan in 2014.
