The Ford Mustang Bullitt will go into production for customers in Europe from June.
When this special edition of the famous pony car was first revealed at the Detroit Auto Show in January, it was not known if it would reach Europe so this is good news for European Mustang fans.
Celebrating the 50th anniversary of the legendary Warner Bros. film starring Steve McQueen, the new Ford Mustang Bullitt special edition features Ford’s 5.0-litre V8 engine enhanced to deliver an anticipated 464PS and 529Nm of torque.
The new Ford Mustang Bullitt also introduces new rev-matching technology for seamless gear changes accompanied by a “blip” of the engine when downshifting, and an active valve performance exhaust system enhances the V8’s signature sound.
This Bullitt edition is offered with a choice of Shadow Black or classic Dark Highland Green.
“Our special edition new Ford Mustang Bullitt evokes a unique heritage we’re proud to share with the McQueen family, and are excited to offer for customers in Europe for the first time,” said Steven Armstrong, group vice president and president, Europe, Middle East & Africa, Ford Motor Company.
Special edition styling includes 19-inch Torq Thrust-style wheels, red Brembo™ brake callipers and a faux Bullitt fuel-filler cap. The interior features Recaro sports seats, and each Ford Mustang Bullitt will have an individually numbered plaque in place of the traditional Mustang emblem on the passenger-side dashboard. As a nod to the original car’s interior, the gear shifter features a white cue ball gearshift knob.
Ford’s 12-inch all-digital LCD instrument cluster and B&O PLAY audio system delivering 1,000 watts through 12 high-performance speakers will also be included.
