2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt made its first appearance at Detroit Auto Show on 14th January 2018 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the 1968 thriller, “Bullitt,” which shot the green Mustang GT to instant fame. The 2019 version of the car combines modern technologies with a classic build, and its Highland Green color is a nod to the famous 1968 Mustang GT.
Appearing in one other shade, Shadow Black, the car packs quite the muscle under its hood. Its 5.0 liter V8 can produce up to 475 BHP and 420 lb-ft torque, allowing it to reach a speed of 163 mph, which is approximately 8 mph faster than the Mustang GT. The car is also a dream come true for muscle car enthusiasts since its only transmission mode is an ivory white cue-ball shifter packed with a six-speed manual gearbox. It has Mustang GT’s entire Performance and Premium package, and to add to the power of its engine, the car also features a Shelby GT350 intake manifold, Open Air induction, and 87 mm throttle bodies. The car has an active exhaust system and black exhaust tips.
To customize the car according to their own tastes, however, buyers can choose black Recaro leather-trimmed seats, MagneRide suspensions, and the Bullitt Electronics Package, which includes navigation, memory settings for the seats and mirrors, upgraded audio system and Blind Spot Information System with Cross-Traffic Alert. A 12 inch LCD display houses the car’s infotainment system.
While no dates and prices have been announced for the Bullitt, it is anticipated that the cars might be made commercially available by this summer and may be more expensive than a standard Mustang GT.
