Ford Mustang BULLITT to be unleashed at Australia’s most prestigious car show, Motorclassica
Inspired by the 1968 film BULLITT where Steve McQueen drove a Mustang GT, the new Mustang BULLITT is the most powerful production Mustang to be sold in Australia, powered by a supercharged V8 that develops 345kW/556Nm and is mated to a six-speed manual with rev-matching capability. All cars will be finished in Dark Highland Green (like the original), and will be fitted with black 19 inch wheels and Brembo brakes with red calipers.
Chrome highlights help to accentuate the Mustang’s muscular lines. Insider, there’s an individually numbered plaque – only 700 examples will be made – and a cue-ball style gearshift knob.
“We’re so pleased that enthusiasts will be able to see Mustang BULLITT in the metal for the very first time at Motorclassica,” said Kay Hart, President and CEO, Ford Australia. “The event is a must-see, and we’re delighted to be part of what’s a cornerstone event on the automotive calendar, and a great way to introduce Mustang BULLITT to Australia.”
“The Ford Mustang has become one of the most collectable models in the car enthusiast’s canon and its longevity is testament to its enduring ‘cool factor’,” said Paul Mathers from Motorclassica. “Unsurprisingly, Mustang enthusiasts and Motorclassica have enjoyed a close relationship over the past nine years, which is why we are so incredibly proud to be chosen by Ford to host the Australian launch of the new Mustang BULLITT, a car that is destined to become a much desired collectable classic in the years to come.”
The Mustang BULLITT will be priced from $73,688 when it rumbles into dealerships from October.
Motorclassica will be held at the stunning Royal Exhibition Building in Carlton from 12-14 October.
