Ford Mustang Bullitt Limited Edition revealed

Ford Will Invest $11 Billion In Electric Cars By 2022

It features a six-speed manual with a white cue-ball shifter as its only transmission - automatic buyers need not apply.

As was anticipated last week, Lot No. 3006 at this week's Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale auction will be for VIN 001 of what appears to be an extremely limited run of 2019 Mustang Bullitts.

Like the auto on which it's based, the Bullitt edition features minimal badging, Dark Highland Green paint, retuned version of Ford's 5-liter V-8 that produces 475 horsepower and 420 foot-pounds of torque as well as a white cueball gear knob.

"This new Bullitt is, as Steve McQueen was, effortlessly cool", said Darrell Behmer, Mustang chief designer. "As a designer, it's my favourite Mustang - devoid of stripes, spoilers and badges". Eagle-eyed McQueen fans will also note the lack of badging on the new 'Stang - just like the King of Cool's 1968 ride.

There are only two colours - Shadow Black and Dark Highland Green as on the movie vehicle. There's subtle chrome accents around the grille and front windows, classic 5-spoke alloy wheels, red-painted Brembo brake calipers and a black grille. "It has to have the right attitude, it has to be unique in some way from a Mustang GT, and more than anything, it has to be bad ass".

After Cinevista Studio inferno, fire breaks out in building at Lower Parel
The fire started from courtroom number 34 on the third floor of the building and fortunately, did not spread to the other parts. This incident comes after the massive fire in Kamala Mills compound that claimed the lives of 14 people on December 29.

Two identical 1968 Mustang GT fastbacks were used in the filming of the classic Warner Bros. movie "Bullitt" that debuted in theaters on October 17, 1968.

The whereabouts of the two vehicles used in the making of Bullitt had been a mystery; the hero vehicle driven by McQueen in the movie was sold by Warner Bros to a private buyer, and the other - used in numerous jumps during the famous chase scene - was sent to a salvage yard. It was long presumed lost, but the 1968 Mustang GT fastback in fact changed hands a few times, an ultimately was inherited by Sean Kiernan in 2014.

It's been rumored for a while that Ford might unveil a new Mustang Bullitt at the Detroit Auto Show, and the company not only rocked up with a stunning looking new version of the model, it did so in positively theatrical style.

"You know, it was never our intention to keep this vehicle a secret from everybody", Kiernan said.

The vehicle reappeared and was on hand to welcome the new Bullitt 'Stang to the world.
