McQueen ’Stang

New Mustang goes like a Bullitt

Ford Mustang

Ford is due to unveil its special edition Mustang at next week's Los Angeles motor show.

Designed to commemorate Steve McQueen's legendary turn in the 1968 movie Bullitt, this dark highland green version boasts a 4.6-litre V8 that kicks out 315bhp - 15 more than the regular one - as well as chassis, suspension and brake upgrades.

It also features some other very cool touches, including a Bullitt filler cap and debadged grill, just like police detective Frank Bullitt's original.

The exhaust note has even been modelled on the sound heard in the movie, from a specially mastered DVD.

7,700 will be produced, starting early in 2008.

Now share it...
