In Detroit he was already, now Ford shows the European version of the Mustang in honor of Steve McQueen. As strong as his US brother, our Mustang Bullitt will not.
Cologne - Ford shows at the Geneva Motor Show for the first time the European version of the Mustang Bullitt. The version for the US market was already in Detroit, now we learn how the anniversary model comes to us. Where: One hundred percent sure the specific data are not yet. Ford promises "likely" 464 hp and 529 Newton meters of torque for the heir of the legendary classic from the Steve McQueen strip, which premiered 50 years ago.
This makes the Mustang Bullitt 14 hp more than an ordinary Mustang GT. The performance increase is achieved by a new intake, a new manifold and the engine calibration of the Mustang Shelby GT350. In addition, in the exclusively hand-operated orderable Bullitt Mustang, an automatic intermediate throttle function is being used for the first time during downshifting.
Visually, the anniversary Mustang is based on a paint in "Dark Highland Green" (Metallic Black is optional) and five -speed 21-inch wheels on the movie star from the 60s. Green stitching, a gear knob in billiard ball design and a sound system by Bang & Olufsen complete the overall picture in the interior.
What the Bullitt Mustang should cost, is not yet known. A normal Mustang GT with V8 starts in this country at 46,000 euros. It can be ordered from May, from August will be delivered.
