Ford Will Show Special Mustang At Detroit?

Ford took the wraps of the Mustang Bullitt at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show.

The new Ford Mustang Bullitt Limited Edition gets the 5.0 litre V8 engine with an impressive 475 hp and 420 lb ft of torque. This model named as "Mustang Bullit" is the company's 50th-anniversary vehicle from the Steve McQueen's movie Bullitt. Wearing a dark green paint job, black wheels and not a single "Ford" badge anywhere one the body, the Bullitt Mustang was just icy cool.

At the Detroit Auto Show on Sunday, Ford introduced a new Mustang inspired by the one that Steve McQueen drove in the 1968 thriller "Bullitt", which made a surprise appearance on stage alongside it. The other vehicle, which was used in many chase scenes, went to a salvage yard. This includes a standard heated leather steering wheel and a 12-inch all-digital LCD instrument cluster that functions exactly as the one in the 2018 Mustang. The seats are covered with leather and accented with green stitching.

Ford on Monday unveiled the new 2019 Mustang Bullitt at the 2018 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, but the special vehicle, launched to mark this year's 50th anniversary of the "Bullitt" movie, was joined by another special vehicle: the actual 1968 Ford Mustang driven by Steve McQueen in the movie.

Parents - monsters tortured their 13 children
They discovered that the couple really did have 12 children held captive in the residence, said the statement . The family had moved from Texas to California within the last several years, according to The New York Times .

Although the special edition is only available in the United States, British customers can still enjoy the spirit of the Bullitt Mustang in the V8 Mustang, which is now on sale in the UK from £41,095.

The Bullitt Mustang will be available in the Summer, but no specific details about when it will be on sale, or price, have been announced. And the Ford Mustang Bullitt comes pretty loaded as-standard, so there aren't many options that need to be fitted. 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.

This is the third time Ford has issued a special edition Bullitt, with prior editions coming out in 2001 and 2008. In fact, it had been in the same family for most of its life, now owned by Sean Kiernan who inherited the most famous Mustang of all from his father in 2014.

Ask just about any Mustang enthusiasts what the "holy grail" of Mustangs is and the 1968 fastback driven by Steve McQueen in the movie "Bullitt" is going to be close to the top of the list.
