The 2019 Ford Mustang GT Bullitt that was unveiled at the Detroit Auto Show in January will have a starting price of $47,495 when it hits the streets this summer.
That makes it the most expensive Mustang GT, but it comes with a few exclusive features that should make it worth it to fans of the model and the Steve McQueen film that inspired them.
Chief among them is a power bump over the standard GT from 460 hp to 480 hp that comes courtesy of a unique intake system and tune for its 5.0-liter V8, which is exclusively matched to a six-speed manual transmission. It’s also faster, with a top speed of 163 mph vs 155 mph, and has a set of Brembo high performance brakes, which should come in handy at that speed.
The Bullitt is only available painted Shadow Black or the classic Dark Highland Green, both versions stripped of most exterior badging and equipped with dark five-spoke wheels and exhaust tips. The interior is trimmed in leather with green stitching and features a cue ball grip on the shifter and a full digital instrument cluster.
The options list is short, but includes the Mustang’s computer controlled MagneRide suspension system and deep Recaro bucket seats.
The order books are open now. Ford hasn’t announced any limits on production volume, but will only offer this Bullitt for two model years.
