Detroit Auto Show 2018: Ford Mustang Bullitt is reborn

Detroit Auto Show 2018: Ford Mustang Bullitt is reborn

It’s been 50 years since Steve McQueen drove the green 1968 Ford Mustang GT Fastback in the iconic car chase on the streets of San Francisco. Now to commemorate the occasion, Ford has taken the stage at this year’s NAIAS with the limited edition 2018 Mustang Bullitt.

The Bullitt Mustang pays homage to the original silver screen car with the same classic Dark Highland green body paint and chrome accents apart from the uber-cool five-spoke alloy wheels. The 5.0-litre V8 of the GT is tuned to produce “at least” 475bhp and 570Nm in the Bullitt edition. The top speed increases to 163mph (262kmph) over the standard car’s 155mph. The homage car is equipped with a manual transmission, and the gear shifter features a white cue ball shift knob as a nod to the original.

The upgrades also include an active valve exhaust system with the new Black NitroPlate exhaust tips. It lends the muscle car the signature V8 burble. The new Open Air Induction system along with the new intake manifold of the Shelby GT350 and an 87mm throttle body contributes to the bump in performance of the Bullitt. Ford has taken efforts to provide a special MagneRide semi-active suspension as well as Recaro black leather-trimmed seats with contrast green stitching to let you know that you are driving a special Mustang. There is a Bullitt logo on the steering wheel as well.

The Detroit stage was also graced by one of the two original Bullitt Mustangs which were lost in history. Post the Detroit debut, the new 2018 Mustang Bullitt will be up for grabs by this summer, said Ford.
