Ford unveils 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt ahead of Detroit auto show

Ford unveils 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt ahead of Detroit auto show

► New 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt► Shown at Detroit motor show ► 50 years on from Bullitt.

The new Mustang, which comes out this summer in the U.S., might lack the stripes of the Mustang GT, but it comes with an upgraded 5.0-litre V8 engine that will deliver at least 475 horsepower and a top speed of a top speed of 163 miles per hour. The auto, 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.

"As a designer, it's my favourite Mustang - devoid of stripes, spoilers and badges".

At the show, it was revealed together with the original 1968 Mustang Steve McQueen drove in the movie.

To do that, Ford started with a Mustang GT and tweaked the 5.0-liter V-8 for more power and a better exhaust sound. One was sold by Warner Bros., to a private buyer, and the other went to a salvage yard.

This inspired Ford to create special editions of the green Mustang, taking modern editions of the muscle vehicle and giving it a "Bullitt" makeover, which involved a green paint job and performance tweaks. Performance options include Ford's MagneRide semi-active suspension and Recaro bucket-seats.

The Bullitt features a performance exhaust system and the open air induction system and intake manifold from the Shelby GT350 as standard. The vehicle is also a dream come true for muscle auto enthusiasts since its only mode of transmission is an ivory white cue-ball shifter and it is packed with a six-speed manual gearbox.

The 2019 Mustang Bullitt will be available this summer, though a specific release date and price has not yet been announced. With black five spokes, a Bullitt gas cap and big dual exhaust, the new vehicle looks very much like the grown up version of McQueen's famous auto. There is a Bullitt logo on the steering wheel as well. At the rear, the Bullitt's standard petrol cap has been replaced with the original Bullitt's false one, showcasing the model's significance.

"You know, it was never our intention to keep this vehicle a secret from everybody", Kiernan said. "It just kind of happened with life".

Molly McQueen, the granddaughter of Steve McQueen, launched the new Ford Mustang Bullitt.

Every motor show features new cars restricted to certain markets, but the United States has more than most.
