If you have ever dreamed of chasing bad guys through San Francisco, your wait is over. In a press release this morning, Ford announced that dealers can now order the 2019 Mustang Bullitt. Finished in the iconic Dark Highland Green, this 480 hp beast arrives with the 87mm intake from the GT350. It also produces 420 lb-ft of torque, as long as you run premium fuel.
Instead of a dual-mode exhaust that is either open or closed, the NitroPlate system is fully active and responds to throttle inputs. Top speed is up to 163, an 8 mph increase over a normal Mustang GT. If green is too flashy, the latest Bullitt is also available in Shadow Black. American Racing supplies the classic Torque-Thrust wheels in 19″, with big Brembo brakes lurking behind them.
It has been 50 years since Steve McQueen performed the ultimate chase on the big screen, and one of the actual movie cars was found abandoned in Mexico last year. Nothing will ever replace the sound and power of the 390 Big Block, but something tells us this new car would outperform its predecessor in every way.
