Post Are you Ford's next Bullitt Mustang? [w/poll]

Filed under: Spy Photos, Coupe, Performance, Ford, Design/Style


Ford has a long history of offering special editions of its legendary Mustang. One of the most vaunted of those trim packages, though, has only been offered twice. The first time was in 2001, and then again in 2008. Yes, we're talking about the Bullitt.

Named for the infamous Dark Highland Green Mustang Fastback driven by Steve McQueen in the 1968 cop melodrama Bullitt, the car was famous for not just its pilot, but the high-speed chase it took part in during the movie. Now, we think we have images of the next Bullitt.

According to our spy photographers, the paint is a "dead-ringer" for the Dark Highland Green that has signified these special edition Mustangs. While we're inclined to agree, it's also worth pointing out that this shade looks very similar to one of the 2015's other new colors, Guard. We've yet to see one on the road (let alone in such dreary conditions), so it's tough to say for certain.

Other key items that might single this car out as a new Bullitt include its wheels. The as-yet-unseen pattern isn't of the Torq-Thrust variety like Bullitt editions, but the cues are clear. The sole item in the grille is an unbarred, galloping pony, while the Mustang bars on the rear badge are straight chrome, rather than red, white and blue. The expected "5.0" badges have been scrubbed for a cleaner appearance, well.

Now, the Autoblog office is fairly split as to whether this is the real deal or simply a 2015 painted in Guard and wearing a set of new wheels, especially as this would seem to be awfully early for Ford to be this far in development on a Bullitt model (which has typically come a bit later in each generation's lifecycle). We want to know what you think. We've got a solid gallery of images at the top of the page, so scroll up, take a look and then head down to our poll and let us know what you think this car is. As per usual, we'd also love to hear from you in Comments.
