Ford Debuts Euro-spec Mustang Bullitt, Complete With 457HP V8 In Geneva

Ford Debuts Euro-spec Mustang Bullitt, Complete With 457HP V8 In Geneva

First revealed at the Detroit motor show in January, this latest iteration of its Mustang Bullitt is the third to pay tribute to the auto that appeared in the movie Bullitt on the famous film's 50th anniversary - the first came in the Mustang's fourth generation in 2001, and then again in 2008 for the fifth-generation Mustang, regarded as a reinvention of the model.

Ford Australia has confirmed it will be introducing the new Mustang Bullitt special edition to local showrooms later this year, giving buyers the opportunity to grab a genuine collector's classic.

Shown for the first time at the Geneva Motor Show and due to go into production in June, the new Mustang Bulllitt special edition was unveiled with the support of third-generation members of the McQueen family, Chase and Madison McQueen.

To help mark the European launch at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, Steve McQueen's grandchildren Chase and Madison McQueen starred in a vehicle chase around the Alps starring the new model, with their father Chad also starring.

Madison added: "Our dad, Chad, taught us to drive in Fords along the Californian coastal roads, so it's been awesome working alongside him and new auto".

It's marked out by Dark Highland Green paint (black is also available), with gunmetal finished 19in torque thrust aluminium wheels, red painted brake calipers and a black front grille.

Instead of the 475hp of the USA version, the Euro-spec Ford Mustang Bullitt is limited to 457hp (464PS) out of its uprated 5.0-liter V8 which is a little bit sad but not sad enough to spoil the excitement. And as a hat-tip to the original car's interior, the gear shift features a white cue ball knob.

The special edition also comes with driver assistance technologies and adjustable suspension so you can get the right setup for you. To that end, an as yet unspecified number of right-hand drive Mustang Bullitts will come to United Kingdom from this summer.
