A few days after a single image of the 2018 Ford Mustang Bullitt surfaced online, a number of other pictures have been snapped of the car during a commercial shoot in Chicago from members of the Mustang6G forum.
Looking identical to the car that first appeared in sketches at the start of the year, the Mustang Bullitt pictured features a selection of bespoke features from the Mustang GT on which it is based.
Most significantly, the pony car will be sold in Dark Highland Green and includes five-spoke black and chrome wheels. Additionally, the car comes equipped with black tailpipes, red Brembo brakes and a set of Recaro seats. A faux gas cap with a crosshair design can also be seen on the rear fascia where the ‘GT’ badge is traditionally located.
Sources suggest that the Mustang Bullitt will be powered by a largely-unchanged 5.0-liter Coyote V8 from the GT. While the Bullitt may not be any quicker in a straight line, it should be more capable through corners thanks to a plethora of new and improved suspension components.
A global premiere at January’s Detroit Auto Show is to be expected.
