Ford is Taking Orders for the 2019 Bullitt
To celebrate the 50 years since the automotive cult-classic movie Bullitt, Ford has announced that it's taking orders for the 2019 Mustang Bullitt. This car isn't just some badges, fancy keys, and different floor mats. In fact, they've removed most of the badging and included some stout performance elements with this special Mustang.
The engine shares the intake manifold with the GT350 and breathes a bit easier with an open-air intake and 87mm throttle body. A unique power control module will be added to make all 480 ponies and 420 lb.-ft of torque work to get the car to its 163 mph top speed in a hurry. The car also features a performance Nitroplated, quad-tipped exhaust.
The Bullitt isn't all go and no show. The exterior and interior styling of the car is a reminder of the machine once masterfully piloted by Steve McQueen. Though non-functional, a Bullitt branded gas cap is in the center of the rear-fascia, and most of the badges are removed to maintain a low profile like the original car. The theme is carried through to the interior, which features green stitching in the seats, console and door panels, and the cue-ball shifter.
This Bullitt homage goes on sale this summer for $46,959.
