The Ford Mustang Bullitt is powered by an upgraded 5.0-litre V8 engine, giving the auto a top speed of 163mph.

The Mustang Bullitt rides on 19-inch black alloy wheels, and the vehicle is available in two colours: Dark Highland Green or Shadow black. This year marks the 50th anniversary for the iconic film and to mark the occasion Ford has just unveiled the new Mustang Bullitt. Finished in the same Dark Highland Green, it is also devoid of spoilers or badging.

Ford, after repeatedly denying the model's existence, revealing the limited-edition 2019 Mustang Bullitt on Sunday at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. Two 1968 Mustang GT fastbacks were used in the film. Two identical cars had been used for filming, one went to a salvage yard, the other was sold and until a year ago its whereabouts were unknown, says Ford. A special steering wheel with the Bullitt logo also reminds you that you're not driving a normal Mustang. MagneRide semi-active suspension is available as an option, as are Recaro seats. The new Open Air Induction system along with the new intake manifold of the Shelby GT350 and an 87mm throttle body contributes to the bump in performance of the Bullitt.
