Yesterday at the North American International Auto Show, Ford launched a limited edition Mustang called the “Mustang Bullitt”.  This limited edition car is celebrating 50 years since the classic film Bullitt.

In the film Steve McQueen drove a 1968 Mustang GT fastback.

The new Mustang Bullitt is powered by a 5.0 litre V8 engine that produces 481 PS. Top speed is 163 mph.

It has a manual gearbox and the gear knob is a white cue ball just like the original car had.

“This new Bullitt™ is, as Steve McQueen was, effortlessly cool.”  “As a designer, it’s my favourite Mustang – devoid of stripes, spoilers and badges. It doesn’t need to scream about anything – it’s just cool.”

Said Darrell Behmer, Mustang chief designer.
