Ford has revealed the latest iteration of its Mustang Bullitt; the 475bhp and a 420lb ft of special edition paying tribute to the famed film car on its 50th anniversary. 

It’s the third time Ford has created a Bullitt edition Mustang - the first came in the Mustang’s fourth generation in 2001, and then again in 2008 for the fifth-generation Mustang, regarded as a reinvention of the model. 

Speed is up over the regular 5.0-litre Mustang’s 155mph top speed, at 168mph, thanks to the uprated power output - the standard car puts out 444bhp.

It’s marked out by Dark Highland Green paint, with gunmetal finished 19in torque thrust aluminium wheels red painted brake calipers and black front grille. At the rear, the Bullitt false petrol cap shows the car’s significance. 

On the inside, there are Recaro seats, the upholstery is finished with green stitching, there’s an 8-ball gearknob and the Bullitt Electronics Package, which adds sat-nav, a premium sound system, blind spot monitor and cross-traffic alert, as well as driver memory seats and mirrors.

Ford will launch the Bullitt in summer, at a price that's well short of a Shelby GT350. It's affordable, one of the reasons Steve McQueen chose the car for the film 50 years ago in October.

Production will be a limited number but enough for keen markets like UK. Ford is not disclosing how many will be made, although it will be more than the Shelby GT350.
