2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt Europe – Legend is BACK
At the Geneva Motor Show, The Ford announced a very welcome news about 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt Europe. Do you remember the 1968 film Bullitt, the one where Steve McQueen (COP Frank Bullitt) aboard a ‘ 67 Ford Mustang was chasing the hitman Phil driving a Dodge Charger along the streets of San Francisco? Fifty years since then, the Ford Motor Company has decided not only to bring back the myth of the Bullitt but also to distribute it within the old continent, for the happiness of all fans. At the Geneva Motor Show, in fact, the Blue Oval House announced that the modern-day reinterpretation of the same Fastback Mustang of 1968 will also be distributed in Europe.
2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt Engine Specs
Wanting to glorify a true American myth the V8 engine could not fail. This is the reason why the new Ford Mustang Bullitt takes its cue from the Ford Mustang GT currently on sale, adopting the same powerful 5.0 litre V8 engine, but it accentuates the performance thanks to some small but important modifications. The new throttle bodies from 87mm, the new software of the control unit, the suction ducts (Open Air induction System) of the Shelby GT350 and the valvular sports exhaust (Active valve performance)-which not only improves the performance but also gives the classic Mumbling of the American V8 of the Sixties-contributed to raise the maximum power and torque respectively to 482 hp and 570 Nm so that they reach the 281 km/h. The powerful engine will be flanked only by manual transmission to 6 relations with function rev-matching while in option you can rely on the sophisticated suspension Magnetic Ride
2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt Colors
But they could not miss even the two original tints Dark Highland Green and Shadow Black, the same used for the bodywork of the Mustang of the famous film. Two colours that will be flanked, moreover, by the typical 5-spoke alloy wheels Torq Thrust (19-inch), by the same chromed on the bodywork and by the same red brake calipers (Brembo). Inevitable, finally, the honeycomb grille, specific to this model and before the horse at a gallop, and the badge with the inscription Bullitt instead of the back logo with the inscription Mustang.
Exterior paint choices are limited to Shadow Black and the classic Dark Highland Green – as worn in the movie. Other features that pay tribute to the car McQueen drove are subtle chrome accents around the grille and front windows, classic torque thrust 19-inch aluminum wheels, red painted Brembo™ brakes, and a unique black front grille. Inside and out, the vehicle uses minimal badging; only the circular faux gas cap Bullitt logo on the rear center is visible on the exterior.
The leather-trimmed interior features unique green accent stitching on the dashboard, door panels, center console and seats.
Aside from the two exterior paint choices, Mustang Bullitt buyers are limited to three factory-installed options:
- Bullitt Electronics Package includes navigation, driver memory seats and mirrors, upgraded sound system and Blind Spot Information System with Cross-Traffic Alert that can alert customers of vehicles detected in difficult-to-see places
- MagneRide® semi-active suspension system optimizes driving performance
- RECARO® black leather-trimmed seats
