Back in 2001, Ford released a special edition Mustang to commemorate the famous 1968 Steve McQueen film Bullitt. The 2001 Mustang Bullitt was styled more subtly than the regular Mustang GT but got improved handling and some extra power.
In 2008, Ford brought the Mustang Bullitt back following a similar formula. We’ve also heard rumors for a while that Ford plans to offer a Bullitt version of the current Mustang, but it never materialized. That, however, may be about to change.
