After some fear it may not make it Downunder, Ford Australia has confirmed the Mustang Bullitt special edition is on its way.

Celebrating the 50th anniversary of the iconic Steve McQueen film of that name, the Bullitt will be sold in strictly limited numbers through Ford dealers in Australia.

There’s every chance you’ve already seen the movie, but just in case. It features what is arguably the most legendary car chase in cinematic history. The 10-minute sequence in the Warner Bros. film follows Steve McQueen at the wheel of a 1968 Mustang GT fastback as he chases two hitmen through the streets of San Francisco.


Available exclusively in classic Dark Highland Green, Mustang Bullitt is based on the 5.0-litre V8 Mustang GT fastback.

Graeme Whickman, the president and CEO of Ford Australia says, “We’re excited to offer Australian buyers the Mustang Bullitt, especially on the 50th anniversary of the legendary film.

“We have to be quite honest about it – Mustang has far exceeded our expectations, and for that, we hope that the 2018 model – and the arrival of Mustang Bullitt – goes to show that we’re bringing in even more choices, options and flavours to help give customers the Ford Mustang they want.”


Further details and Australian specification of the 2018 Ford Mustang Bullitt special edition will be announced closer to the vehicles launch.
