Now, 50 years after filming wrapped up, Ford Motor Co. has the classic vehicle on display next to the head-turning 2019 Mustang Bullitt at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. The Bullitt comes with Ford's potent 5.0L DOHC V-8, putting out at least 475 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque with a revised top speed of 163 miles per hour.
Ford has revealed the new, 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, featuring unique tuning enhancements and an upgraded engine.
The Mustang Bullitt comes only with a manual transmission with a "cue ball" white shifter as McQueen would have wanted it.
The current 2018 Mustang Bullitt gets the same Dark Highland Green paint, 19-inch aluminium wheel in a gunmetal colour, red painted brake callipers, and a black front grille.
Ford has taken the wraps off the new 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt, to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the famous Steve McQueen Film Bullitt. "It doesn't need to scream about anything - it's just cool".
HUD's Carson: 'We Know How to End Homelessness'
This report displays homeless assistance projects awarded in HUD's FY2017 Continuum of Care (CoC) Program competition. McHenry County received around a million dollars, while DeKalb and DeKalb County received a total of almost 600,000.
Options include an electronics package that features navigation, upgraded sound system and blind spot and cross traffic warnings.
Under the skin, the Bullitt Mustang receives a power boost - pushing it from the standard car's 444bhp to 475bhp. You'll notice Bullitt uses minimal badging; only the circular faux gas cap Bullitt logo on the rear center is visible on the exterior.
The power of the 2019 Mustang Bullitt is incredible, but its aesthetics also serves as great homage to McQueen's Bullitt auto.
But since 2008 there's been no real hints of the Mustang Bullitt making a return, through reports in December were said to have spotted a new version lurking at a hotel outside a nearby auto show. MagneRide incorporates a semi-active suspension system and the Recaro black leather-trimmed seats are also optional. What does matter is the history of the Bullitt name and Ford's decision to revive it with the sixth-gen Mustang.
"It's bad-ass", she said. The other vehicle, which was used in many chase scenes, went to a salvage yard. "It just kind happened with life". "I would like very much to keep it in the family in its original condition as it was used in the film, rather than have it restored; which is simply personal with me", McQueen wrote. Ford stated the 2019 Bullitt will be available as a special-edition model this summer.
