The 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt Is Ready to Conquer The World


That very vehicle was on the Ford stand at this year's North American International Auto Show beside the 2019, special edition 50 Anniversary Mustang Bullitt. Pretty cool stuff, huh?

The third generation of Ford Mustang Bullitt is ready to take the wheel, revealing new looks and new specs.

Ford has just announced at the Detroit motor show that it plans to release an all-electric performance SUV in 2020.

Cars.com's Editorial department is your source for automotive news and reviews. There's subtle chrome accents around the grille and front windows, classic 5-spoke alloy wheels, red-painted Brembo brake calipers and a black grille.

Performance figures include a 262 km/h top speed, 12 km/h more than a regulation Mustang GT. The Kiernan's '559 Mustang was the "hero car" used for many of McQueen's close-up scenes.

Mind you, it's not hard to be cool in a auto 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. "I'm just completely buzzing to join with Ford and the new Bullitt and show this vehicle to the world on one of the biggest stages there is".

This model named as "Mustang Bullit" is the company's 50th-anniversary vehicle from the Steve McQueen's movie Bullitt.

"As a designer, it's my favorite Mustang - devoid of stripes, spoilers and badges". The vehicle will come equipped with a manual transmission and a gear shifter that features a white cue ball shift knob in a nod to the original. MagneRide incorporates a semi-active suspension system and the Recaro black leather-trimmed seats are also optional.

There's no word on a specific release date or price, but the Mustang Bullitt will make its way over to the United Kingdom and Europe around the summertime, and we suspect it'll be a good bit more expensive than the standard Mustang GT.

Bought in 1974 from Warner Bros.by studio employee Robert M. Ross, the vehicle had two subsequent owners, a police detective called Frank Marranca (how cool is that?), and an insurance executive, Bob Kiernan.
