Ford Resurrects a Legend With the 2019 Mustang Bullitt
Steve McQueen’s speed machine gets a muscle-y 480hp upgrade.
The Mustang Bullitt is cool. But it would be cool whether it was called the Bullitt or the 5.0 SVO or the GT Dark Green Edition. Its coolness is innate and not tied to the time Steve McQueen ripped up the streets of San Francisco in a mean green Mustang back in 1968.
It’s a curious marketing move, when you ponder it for more than a second. I mean, BMW doesn’t offer an M5 Ronin and Ferrari doesn’t build a 488 Spider The Rock. Although the latter car chase was excellent, once you suspended the disbelief that a Hummer H1 could keep up with a Ferrari F355.
