Ford Mustang Bullitt arrives in Detroit with 475 horsepower

2018 Ford Mustang Bullitt Is Back For Film’s 50th

For true petrolheads, keen for a proper "driver experience" there's a manual gearbox so Bullitt owners can really feel like they are taming a charging Mustang.

Since the GT500 will have over 700 horsepower, it also has a good chance of out-powering the Dodge Challenger Hellcat muscle auto, which has a 707-horsepower supercharged engine.

The Bullitt Mustang comes with a unique black front grille.

Why does it matter? .

The 2019 Mustang Bullitt, which will also be available in Dark Highland Green and Shadow Black color options, will pack a 5.0-liter V8 engine with 475 horsepower and a maximum speed of 163 miles per hour.

Ford has announced the 2019 Mustang Bullitt just in time for the 50th anniversary of the Steve McQueen-starrer, "Bullitt".

Ford unveiled a couple of new models at the North American International Auto Show, including a new Ranger pickup truck and Bullitt Mustang. Kiernan says the vehicle was never meant to be a secret, but kept it quiet once the plan came together to reveal it with the new Bullitt Mustang on the film's 50 anniversary.

His granddaughter, Molly, takes the wheel in a fun remake of the legendary San Francisco two-car chase sequence... this time in a vehicle park with only one remaining space. The latter, used in numerous jump scenes, was recovered in early 2017, the other was inherited by Sean Kiernan from his late father, Robert, in 2014, and he contacted Ford. We don't know much about it yet, but Ford says the Mach 1 will be fully electric.

Realizing 2018 is the 50 year since the movie was shown Oct 17, 1968, the current owner contacted Ford and from there the two parties worked together on the project.

When is it coming? .

The vehicle will be available in two colours, black and the iconic Dark Highland Green seen in the action film, though it's hard to see many buyers opting for anything other than the green paint. Other performance enhancing items include an open air induction system, a Shelby GT350-derived intake manifold - with 87 mm throttle bodies - and new powertrain control module calibration.

Should you buy it? . There are only a few options: the Bullitt Electronics Package (nav, memory mirror and seats, better audio, BLIS with cross-traffic alert), MagneRide, and Recaro seats trimmed in black leather.
