Ford Tracks Down Lost 'Bullitt' Car For Limited Edition Mustang Reveal

Ford Mustang Bullitt 1

Ford is throwing it back to one of the greatest cars of the silver screen with the 2019 Mustang Bullitt, launching this year to celebrate the 50 anniversary of the Steve McQueen classic. Pretty cool stuff, huh?

The 2019 Ford Bullitt was unveiled to surprised spectators at the Detroit Auto show.'s Editorial department is your source for automotive news and reviews.

"We're all in on this and we're taking our mainstream vehicles, our most iconic vehicles, and we're electrifying them", company chairman Bill Ford said.

That extra power comes thanks to a new Open Air Induction System and the use of the Shelby GT350 intake manifold with 87mm throttle bodies.

Other homage items are subtle chrome accents around the grille and front windows, a unique black front grille, classic torque thrust 19-inch aluminum wheels as well as red painted Brembo brakes.

The rumours of a new Bullitt started flying some time ago, but kicked into top gear when a green Mustang with a crosshair emblem at the rear was spotted driving around in Chicago. However, the 2019 Mustang Bullitt is the most powerful so far, even beating Ford's 2018 Mustang GT.

The event triggered demonstrations across the country, which eventually spread to others in the Arab world. Many people face unemployment, with official figures put the unemployment rate at around 15 percent.

The interior includes a 12-inch all-digital LCD instrument cluster with Recaro black leather-trimmed seats and green accent stitching.

AT THIS STAGE THE limited-run Mustang Bullitt will only be available in the US.

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.

Mind you, it's not hard to be cool in a vehicle with understated chrome accents around front windows and special black grille, classic 19 inch aluminium wheels, red painted Brembo brake callipers and - just like the original - no exterior badging at all other than a Bullitt logo on the dummy fuel cap in the centre of the rear panel.

On Canadian models, Ford's MagneRide semi-active suspension is standard.

It went under the radar for many years until it recently resurfaced when inherited by Sean Kiernan from his late father in 2014.
