50th Anniversary Ford Mustang Bullitt Must Get Super Bowl 2018 Ad

The original 1968 Mustang from Bullitt in Sean’s secret barn in Nashville Inset the letter from Steve Mc Queen to Robert Kiernan dated 1977

In case you missed it, on Sunday, Ford pulled the wraps off of an all-new Bullitt Mustang - the latest pony auto to wear the iconic badge, meant to pay homage to the 1968 Steve McQueen film Bullitt. Unlike previous Bullitt editions, Ford has bumped the GT's engine power to 475 hp and 420 lb-ft of torque.

The new 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt was revealed at the Detroit Auto Show.

All the Mustang GT Premium and Performance Package go-fast goodies comes as standard kit, including a five-speed manual transmission with a white cue ball - just like the original - in place of the gear-lever knob.

The Mustang Bullitt will be available in either Shadow Black or the classic Dark Highland Green paintwork (worn by the movie car).

The Bullitt Mustang gets classic torque thrust 19-inch aluminum wheels.

Ford had been keenly aware of the movie's 50th anniversary and wanted to do something special to mark it, said Carl Widmann, the chief engineer on Ford's Mustang program. "It doesn't need to scream about anything - it's just cool". In addition, it will benefit from an active exhaust, a upgraded induction system, and a Shelby GT350 intake manifold. It was made known that Canada will get standard some features that are options in the US, including an electronics package with navigation and safety features, and a semi-active suspension system Ford dubs MagneRide.

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.

Due out this coming summer, the Bullitt edition Mustang is equipped with all the right stuff to recreate McQueen's famous chase scene if you ever so desired (don't call us for bail money if you do though!).

Outback there is Black NitroPlate™ exhaust tips and a Bullitt logo on the circular faux gas cap.

There is no word from Ford if it will bring this special edition Mustang to India.

But since 2008 there's been no real hints of the Mustang Bullitt making a return, through reports in December were said to have spotted a new version lurking at a hotel outside a nearby vehicle show. Other cool and unique touches consist of the MagnaRide adjustable suspension and Recaro seats.

Ford introduced the new model alongside an original 1968 Mustang GT fastback that was the featured in the movie. In fact, it had been in the same family for most of its life, now owned by Sean Kiernan who inherited the most famous Mustang of all from his father in 2014.
