The 1968 movie Bullitt is considered a "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant" film; of the many aspects that made it so was the iconic car chase between Steve McQueen's characteristic Mustang and a Charger through the streets of San Francisco. In 2000 a Ford Mustang Bullitt appeared as a concept car, with the production version going on sale in 2001. The car was made as a homage to the Bullitt movie and featured certain upgrades and modifications from the rest of the Mustang flock. While the original Ford Mustang GT that was used in the Bullitt movie might be hard to get, this 2001 Ford Mustang Bullitt is a closer reach for you; this is #252 of 5,582 Bullitt special editions built and comes with 46,000 miles on the odometer.
Interestingly the 2001 Ford Mustang Bullitt was offered in three exterior colors, the iconic Dark Highland Green, Black, and a True Blue color. This car, of course, sports the Dark Highland Green that was used for the Mustang in Bullitt. The car also uses the "New Edge" design, which gives it a sleeker and sportier look. The hood is host to a massive hood air scoop, while lower, the honeycomb pattern grille is finished in black with the Mustang Pony superimposed in the middle. The Mustang also features GT and special Bullit badging throughout. Other exterior changes include a Bullitt-unique 17" 5-spoke wheels backed up by red painted brake calipers and a brushed aluminum fuel filler. The seller is also offering Cobra R-style wheels with some negotiations. The interior is finished in a Dark Charcoal color with articulated sports seats featuring leather appointments. It also features a tilt steering column topped off by a sports leather-wrapped 4-spoke steering wheel.
The 2001 Ford Mustang Bullitt makes 265hp of power and 305 lb.ft of torque thanks to its upgraded 4.6L V8 engine. The 2001 Bullitt's 0-60 mph is clocked in at a respectable 5.6 seconds.
