Mustang Bullitt pays homage to 1968 movie classic

Mustang Bullitt pays homage to 1968 movie classic

Ford has sold Bullitt editions before, including one for the fifth gen; but the one that comes 50 years after the film and the original in the chase (even if it is a 2019) has anniversary appeal.

Like the auto on which it's based, the Bullitt edition features minimal badging, Dark Highland Green paint, retuned version of Ford's 5-liter V-8 that produces 475 horsepower and 420 foot-pounds of torque as well as a white cueball gear knob. Furthermore, the Ford Mustang Bullitt features only two color options, namely Shadow Black and Dark Highland Green. Classic 19 inch aluminium wheels have been developed to hide red Brembo callipers.

The auto also should have a glorious sound, courtesy of an active valve performance exhaust system with Black NitroPlate exhaust tips, as well as a new Open Air Induction System and Shelby GT350 intake manifold with 87mm throttle bodies and powertrain control module calibration for optimal performance. Each BULLITT™ comes standard with the GT Premium Content, as well as numerous performance features found in the GT Performance Package, the 12-inch digital instrument cluster with MyColor® and an active valve performance exhaust with a unique black NitroPlate™ finish.

Dolores O'Riordan death 'not suspicious'
On Twitter Monday, the Cranberries said that O'Riordan's family members are "devastated" by the news and have requested privacy. Suffice to say, I am very sad to lose someone who meant so much to me and to many people across the world.

As with any Mustang, factory-installed options are available including the Bullitt Electronics Package that features things like navigation, an upgraded sound system, memory seats and mirrors and blind-spot monitoring with cross-traffic alert.

Molly McQueen, the granddaughter of Steve McQueen, launched the new Ford Mustang Bullitt. "As a designer, it's my favorite Mustang - devoid of stripes, spoilers and badges".

To celebrate the launch of the new vehicle at the Detroit Auto Show, Ford brought along one of two original Mustangs that were used during the filming of Bullitt starring Steve McQueen.

The president's trip is a foretaste of a tough new immigration and asylum bill to be presented to the Cabinet in February. The number of asylum seekers receiving final approval to stay in France was down slightly, to 35.8 percent.

Ford made much of the car's cool factor in its unveil, and in the looks department it mostly delivers with an air of understated power to distance itself from run-of-the-mill Mustangs.

The $50,000 Mustang Bullitt will go on sale this summer.

Ford has just announced at the Detroit motor show that it plans to release an all-electric performance SUV in 2020. "It just kind happened with life".
