The new Ford Mustang Bullitt crosses the Atlantic, giving European customers the chance to own one of the most popular special versions of the American pony car.
Instead of the 475hp of the US version, the Euro-spec Ford Mustang Bullitt is limited to 457hp (464PS) out of its uprated 5.0-liter V8 which is a little bit sad but not sad enough to spoil the excitement.
The V8 engine features an open-air induction system, an upgraded intake manifold, 87mm throttle bodies and a control module calibration straight from the Shelby Mustang GT350 to produce 457hp (464PS) and 390lb-ft (529Nm) of peak torque.
Paired to it will be a six-speed manual transmission with Ford’s new rev-matching technology which blips the throttle as the driver downshifts.
Customers will be given two exterior paint options: Shadow Black or the classic Highland Green. A set of 19-inch Torq Thrust-style alloy wheels, along with red Brembo calipers, chrome accents around the unique grille and windows, as well as a Bullitt-style fuel cap complete the exterior features.
Inside you get the latest 12-inch all-digital instrument cluster, a white gearshift knob and green stitching on the seats and a premium 1000-watt B&O PLAY audio system. Ford will also offer as an option black leather-trimmed Recaro sports seats.
