The production of the Mustang Bullitt follows the 50th anniversary of the iconic movie “Bullitt” with 55 all-new and highly exclusive Bullitts hitting South African roads by the beginning of August this year.
The Mustang Bullitt will be offered in Shadow Black or Dark Highland Green with chrome accents around the black grille and front windows. The Bullitt’s simple, yet classic design also features red-painted Brembo brake callipers and minimal badging. “This new Bullitt is my favourite Mustang. With zero stripes, spoilers or badges, it doesn’t need to shout. It’s just cool, like Steve McQueen,” said Darrell Behmer, Mustang chief designer.
This unique sports car will be powered by an enhanced 5.0-litre V8 engine offering 338 kW and 529 Nm of torque. The engine has been enhanced with an Open-Air Induction System, 87 mm throttle bodies and powertrain control module calibration. It also comes equipped with a 6-speed manual transmission with rev-matching technology. The Active Valve Performance Exhaust System allows you to control the volume of the Mustang’s exhaust with a Quiet Start option and a Track Setting for that extra energy boost. Other modes include Normal and Sport.
The leather-trimmed interior flaunts contrasting stitching on the dashboard, door panels, centre console and seats. Each Mustang Bullitt will also feature an individually numbered plaque on the passenger side of the dashboard. In an ode to the original Mustang, the gear shifter features a white cue ball shift knob. Other standard features include a leather heated steering wheel and a 12-inch all-digital LCD instrument cluster with a unique Bullitt welcome screen.
The Mustang Bullitt is sure to stop traffic and with the addition of an enjoyable driving experience, it will make you feel like Steve McQueen himself.
