Ford teases GT500 Mustang
Revived legend to be most powerful Mustang ever

► New 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt► Shown at Detroit motor show ► 50 years on from Bullitt. It features a Dark Highland Green paint (black is also available), gunmetal finished 19-inch aluminium wheels, red-painted brake calipers and a black front grille. The vehicle, along with the new Ford Mustang '19, was unveiled by the owner's son and Molly McQueen, Steve's granddaughter, at a Ford promotional event over the weekend. Eagle-eyed McQueen fans will also note the lack of badging on the new 'Stang - just like the King of Cool's 1968 ride. The new 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt was revealed at the Detroit Auto Show. Hence, this Mustang is different from a standard GT in many ways. This includes a standard heated leather steering wheel and a 12-inch all-digital LCD instrument cluster that functions exactly as the one in the 2018 Mustang. The added performance is courtesy of an active valve performance exhaust system with new Black NitroPlate exhaust tips to make it look as well as sound cool, and retuned to give the vehicle a signature burble.

Ford has revealed a 475bhp Mustang special edition which pays homage to the famed auto from Steve McQueen's epic Bullitt movie on its 50th anniversary.

All new Mustang Bullitt models come with the manual 'box, topped by a white snooker ball gearknob reminiscent of the 68 Mustang from Bullitt.

Now to commemorate the occasion, Ford has taken the stage at this year's NAIAS with the limited edition 2018 Mustang Bullitt.

Ford to bring back yet another classic in the Mustang Shelby GT500

It is one of the most famous cars in cinema history, up there with Michael Caine's Mini Cooper from The Italian Job and Michael J Fox's DeLorean from Back to the Future. In fact, it had been in the same family for most of its life, now owned by Sean Kiernan who inherited the most famous Mustang of all from his father in 2014.

On October 17th 1968, the movie Bullitt became an instant hit thanks to an epic vehicle chase lasting 9 minutes and 42 seconds. Steve's granddaughter Molly helped to unveil the vehicle at the Detroit Auto Show.

Every motor show features new cars restricted to certain markets, but the United States has more than most. They are the Bullitt electronic package which has navigation, premium sound, blind-spot monitors, and memory, the black leather Recaro front seats, and the MagneRide magnetorheological dampers.
