Special Ford Mustang Bullitt Arrives In The UK, Priced From £47,145

Easily one of the hottest cars on display at this year’s Detroit Auto Show, the new Ford Mustang Bullitt is already available to order in several markets. And, as of today, in the United Kingdom, too, where the official MSRP is £47,145 ($63,303).

Given that it pays tribute to the iconic model driven by Steve McQueen 50 years ago in ‘Bullitt’, and that it’s slightly more powerful and offers more kit than the usual Mustang GT, the £5,400 ($7,251) premium sounds like a good deal.

What makes the 2018 Ford Mustang Bullitt so special? That would be the unique and ever wonderful Dark Highland Green metallic paint along with the special design schemes in the grille and splitter, rear ‘Bullitt’ badge and 19-inch alloy wheels that feature a special pattern and glossy black look. The special edition of the Mustang also benefits from red Brembo six-piston front brake calipers.

The list of extra equipment over the regular Ford Mustang GT includes Recaro leather seats, green details and stitching, a white cue ball gear knob and special Bullitt instrument panel badge with the unique chassis number. Audiophiles should be delighted by the standard B&O sound system, which delivers 1,000 watts through 12 speakers.

Powering the Ford Mustang Bullitt is the same 5.0-liter V8 engine found in the Mustang GT, which now delivers 459PS (453hp / 338kW) and 529Nm (390lb-ft) of torque to the rear wheels through a six-speed manual transmission.

    Nice car. I would remove the “Bullitt” badge on the rear, which I think is tacky.

    Beautiful car. If I were to get a Mustang, this would be it.

    Wish you could get the 10 speed automatic with it. But I’m sure the purists prefer the manual only.

    That’s quite expensive for a Mustang, no?

    Truly beautiful. They’ve nailed the facelift!
