Ford has confirmed that it’ll soon open the local order books on the 2019 Mustang Bullitt, along with confirming just how powerful the limited-edition Steve McQueen-inspired coupe will be.
In reality? The 2019 Mustang Bullitt has 480 horsepower and 420 lb-ft. of torque. It’ll go twelve km per hour faster than the regular Mustang GT, but should sound more interesting while it does it, courtesy of changes to the NitroPlate quad-tip exhaust system that comes as standard. Ford also used the Mustang Shelby GT350’s intake manifold, and a larger, 87mm throttle body too.
On the outside, there’ll be a choice of two colors: Shadow Black or the classic Dark Highland Green. The chrome work has been toned down, with more subtle accents on the front windows, while the grill has been blacked out too. There’s a splash of colour from the red-painted Brembo brakes, peeking out from behind the 19-inch aluminum wheels.
Ford has, sensibly, done away with much of the badging. The faux petrol cap has a Bullitt logo at the rear center, and that’s pretty much it. Inside, there’s black leather with green accent stitching which spreads across the dashboard, door panel, and center console in addition to the seats. Ford also used a movie-matching cue ball shift knob for the gearstick.
Local pricing and spec levels will be confirmed closer to local introduction.
