2019 Mustang Bullitt debuts in Detroit


#1

Ever since Steve McQueen chased a hubcap-shedding Charger through the streets of San Francisco as Lieutenant Frank Bullitt in the 1968 movie named for the title character, Highland Green Mustang fastbacks have been just a little bit cooler than the rest. With the 50th anniversary of Bullitt approaching, Mustang fans have been expecting a new homage to the movie car based on the current, S550-chassis pony car. There were rumors and there were red herrings, but now the real 2018 Bullitt Mustang has been unveiled and it’s gorgeous.

As long as you like the style of the Mustangs, which I don’t, and don’t mind a car stuffed with computers that no mere mortal gearhead can diagnose or fix, it’s a cool car.

Can we see the McQueen '68 at the auto show for the next week?

Thank You Kyle, I hope I can get up close to see it and not from too far away

Too bad they didn’t follow the fashion of the original. From all appearances the original was not a loaded Mustang. It was a simple 390 4 speed car with some aftermarket wheels. It should have been a base Mustang with the v8. Like my 87 5 litre LX hatchback.
