THE most powerful Mustang ever sold in Australia, the Ford Mustang BULLITT, will make its local debut at the 2018 Motorclassica in Melbourne, at the same time marking the 50th anniversary of the film of the same name.
The BULLITT pays homage to the 1968 Mustang GT Fastback driven by Steve McQueen in the original motion picture, and is finished in Dark Highland Green, with a fastback body that is devoid of any external badging.
Just 700 individually numbered BULLITT Mutangs will be available in Australia, with each one featuring a 345kW 5.0-litre V8 engine, producing 556Nm of torque, and mated to a six-speed manual transmission with rev matching.
Torq-Thrust style black 19-inch alloy wheels, Red Brembo brake calipers and chrome window trim enhance the modern good looks of the Mustang; while inside, each example carries an individually-numbered plaque, cue-ball style gear-knob and BULLITT badging.
Motorclassica 2018 will take place over four days, from October 12-14, at the World Heritage-listed Royal Exhibition Building in Carlton, Melbourne, with 550 vehicles across 30,000 square-metres of exhibition space.
Deliveries of the Ford Mustang BULLITT will begin in Australia in October 2018. It i priced at $73,688 plus on-roads. The price does however already include Luxury Car Tax.
