Set to hit the North American market later in the summer, the Ford Mustang Bullitt GT has been unveiled to coincide with the Detroit Motor Show. Powered by a 5.0l V8 engine it will deliver 569Nm of torque and feature a 6-speed manual gearbox to match the original.
Featuring a unique exhaust sound thanks to a performance exhaust system and a Shelby GT350 intake manifold, the Ford Mustang Bullitt GT will ride on 19” black alloy wheels and the choice of Shadow Black or Dark highland Green paintwork. Chrome will feature around the front windscreen and grille, with distinctive green stitching in the interior.
The Bullitt features a performance exhaust system as standard as well as the open air induction system and intake manifold from the Shelby GT350. Ford says this has been designed to give it a unique exhaust note.
Ford has previously released a Bullitt edition of the Mustang. In 2001 a limited edition Bullitt Mustang had a 4.6l V8 engine, 0-62 time of 5.6 seconds and 265bhp.
It has yet to be announced by Ford if the Ford Mustang Bullitt GT edition is to be released as a right hand drive for the UK market. Jennings Ford will continue to monitor if and when any news is released.
