- Mustang Bullitt celebrates famous film’s 50th anniversary
- Available in black or green
- Production starts in June
Ford Mustang Bullitt special edition shown at Geneva
Ford reveals a special edition of its Mustang, badged Bullitt, and announces plans to put it on sale in the UK later this year.
The edition has been created in homage to the famous film, Bullitt, staring Steve McQueen, which celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2018.
It only seems appropriate that the Mustang Bullitt comes with the more powerful version of the car’s two engines – the 5.0-litre V8 – but it also comes with a slight enhancement to the induction system and a few tweaks from the Shelby Mustang GT350. As a result, it comes with an expected 464 horsepower, a 14-horsepower boost over the standard 2018 car.
Inside, it gets a unique Bullitt welcome screen on the infotainment system, with an image of the car in the place of the usual Mustang Pony that starts up on the standard car. It also gets green stitching on the seats and a while cue-ball gearshift knob.
Pricing will be announced closer to the car’s June on sale date.
