Pretoria - The Ford Mustang Bullitt pays tribute to one of Hollywood’s most legendary car chases, and soon you’ll be able to get in on the nostalgia too.
Ford South Africa has confirmed that the 2019 Mustang Bullitt edition, featuring a more powerful V8, will become available locally in 2019, in limited numbers.
The car celebrates, and capitalises on, the 50th anniversary of the movie Bullitt, which saw Steve McQueen engage in a hair-raising, tyre smoking duel with a Dodge Charger through the hilly streets of San Francisco. C'mon, watch it again:
In keeping with the theme, only two exterior paint colours will be available: Shadow Black or Dark Highland Green, but you should really go for the latter, which is a recreation of the movie car’s hue.
