2019 Ford Mustang GT Bullitt Debuts at NYAS

There are few on-screen cars as memorable as the 1968 Mustang Fastback coupe from the movie Bullitt. Driven by Steve McQueen through the streets of San Francisco, this powerful and sleek machine became the dream of every car lover across the world. The original and main 1968 Mustang Fastback used in the film, changed hands a few times and ended up with a family in Nashville. Currently the original is worth upwards of $4 million and is only the twenty-first vehicle to be part of the National Historic Vehicle Register. With all this history, it makes sense that Ford decided to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Bullitt by releasing the 2019 Ford Mustang GT Bullitt. Introduced at this year's New York Auto Show, this gorgeous modern muscle car, now available from participating Southern California Ford Dealers, is worth a closer look.

Performance Beyond Imagine

Once you get over the beauty of the 2019 Ford Mustang GT Bullitt, you'll swoon a second time when you check out what it can do on the road. The Bullitt is equipped with a
5.0-liter Ti-VCT V8 that kicks out 480 horsepower at 7,000 rpm and 420 lb.-ft. of torque at 4,600 rpm. The Active Valve Performance exhaust system with quad tips, 12.0-1 compression ratio, and 3.73 TORSEN limited-slip rear axle only enhance what is already a monster of a muscle car. The 6-speed manual transmission with Rev Matching helps you get a EPA-est. 15 city/25 hwy* MPG with seating for four.
