Ford Mustang Bullitt, a movie car

Ford Mustang Bullitt, a movie car.

Steve McQueen returns to be present in the American brand, more powerful than ever, after the launch of the third generation of the Ford Mustang Bullitt.

Everything in life has an origin or, at least that's what they say. In the case of the Ford Mustang Bullitt, its beginning was cinema, and never better said. He was born in the movie "Bullitt", starring the legendary actor Steve McQueen and who gives his name to this very special version of the Mustang from which the third generation is launched this year. In this film one of the best scenes of pursuit of cinema cars of all times was lived, that was recorded in 1968 in the streets of San Francisco.

Three decades later the first generation of the Bullitt version was born. There were times that, in my view, were not the best lived in the automobile industry. And although aesthetics, as I was saying, followed the fashion of the nineties more than its DNA, the heart, lungs and voice were pure Mustangs. After appearing in the year 2000 at the Los Angeles Auto Show, how could it be otherwise, in 2001 the first generation of the Ford Mustang Bullitt was born. With a V8 engine of 4.6l and 269 HP and with the option of three colors, more than half were sold with the "Dark Highland Green".

Seven years later, in 2008, the second generation was born based on the model that was launched in 2005 and that undoubtedly returned to the origin of the Mustangs. In this case, with almost six thousand units manufactured only in the color Dark Highland Green and black, the result was clearly closer to the original. In the technical part mounted a 4.6-liter engine in V8 that gave 334CV thanks to the mechanics inherited from Ford Racing.

And in this year the third generation has arrived. Through the GT the Mustang puts on the game panel the most powerful Bullitt in history. With a 5.0 engine in V8 and specially boosted to 482 HP. Do not leave, keep surfing and you will not miss any details ...
