Steve McQueen-alarm: Ford reanimeert Mustang Bullitt

Vijftig jaar geleden reed Steve McQueen Ford Mustang Fastback tijdens de legendarische achtervolgingsscène van de film Bullitt. Ford grijpt de verjaardag van de film aan om een gelimiteerde Bullitt-versie van de huidige Mustang te maken.

Zoals het hoort heeft de Ford Mustang Bullitt Special Edition een handbak die de vijfliter V8 met de achterwielen verbindt. De motor levert 481 pk en is goed voor een topsnelheid van 262 km/u. Eveneens een knikje naar het verleden is de witte 'cueball' knop die op de pook zit. Om Steve McQueen niet in zijn hemd te zetten, heeft Ford alle extra's qua prestaties aan de auto gehangen: het GT Premium en het Performance Package zijn inbegrepen.

Om de echte V8 pruttel en grom toe te voegen heeft wagen actieve kleppen in de uitlaat en zit er een extra grote luchtinlaat op. Verder heeft de auto een verwarmd stuur (een must) en een 12 inch LCD dashboard. Net als het origineel, heeft deze Mustang aan de buitenkant zo min mogelijk merkjes en plaatjes zitten. Er is keus uit twee kleurtjes verf: Shadow Black of Dark Highland Green.

Dit is een van die Mustangs waarvan je hoopt dat hij nooit door een idioot wordt weggereden bij een Cars & Coffee.

De originele auto die Steve McQueen reed in de film bestaat nog steeds. Hij was bijna vier decennia 'verdwenen', maar bleek gewoon bij een eigenaar in de garage te staan. Nadat deze Robert Kiernan een paar jaar geleden overleed erfde zijn zoon Sean de Mustang en hij wist niet hoe snel hij contact met Ford op moest nemen om te kijken wat ze samen met de Bullitt konden doen. De auto is niet gerestaureerd en in originele toestand gebleven (precies zoals Steve McQueen het graag wilde).
