Ford Mustang Bullitt revealed

Ford to bring back yet another classic in the Mustang Shelby GT500

Ford is throwing it back to one of the greatest cars of the silver screen with the 2019 Mustang Bullitt, launching this year to celebrate the 50 anniversary of the Steve McQueen classic. The Bullitt comes with Ford's potent 5.0L DOHC V-8, putting out at least 475 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque with a revised top speed of 163 miles per hour. Now, on the 50th anniversary of the film, Ford has chose to lay another tribute to the fastback in the form of a limited edition 2019 Mustang 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.

Molly McQueen, the granddaughter of actor Steve McQueen, introduces the 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt at the 2018 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, on January 14, 2018.

For as long as Ford has been making special-edition Bullitt Mustang models, the faux gas cap with the crosshair Bullitt logo has been a distinguishing feature. The Mustang Bullitt also gets an active valve performance exhaust system with Black NitroPlate exhaust tips, Open Air Induction System, and the Shelby GT350's intake manifold.

It's been 50 years since Steve McQueen drove the green 1968 Ford Mustang GT Fastback in the iconic auto chase on the streets of San Francisco.

Ford also teased yet another new Mustang version due out in 2020, the Mach 1.

Carillion goes into liquidation
Contracts, joint venture partners and lenders are now hanging in the balance as a result of Carillion's demise. Pentonville Prison maintenance work will carry on as normal after Carillion's collapse.

For true petrolheads, keen for a proper "driver experience" there's a manual gearbox so Bullitt owners can really feel like they are taming a charging Mustang.

The original McQueen auto, one of two identical 1968 Mustang GT fastbacks used in the filming of Bullitt that hit theaters on October 17, 1968, had for years sat in a New Jersey garage. There's subtle badging with only the circular faux gas cap Bullitt logo on the rear visible on the outside of the vehicle.

If you are unable to hide your grey hair anymore, chances are you are familiar with the movie Bullitt. "It just kind of happened with life".

Ford is also offering three options for those who want more; Recaro leather sports seats, magnetic suspension and an upgraded electronics package with sat nav, a higher-grade audio system and additional safety functions like blind spot monitoring and rear cross traffic alert.
