Page 1 of 1 When Steve McQueen raced through the streets of San Francisco in the movie Bullitt, he probably had no idea that it was the making of a legend. Today, the Ford Mustang has appeared in more movies than most of Hollywood's brightest stars. In memory of one of the greatest car chase scenes ever, Ford brought the magic back with the special edition 2001 Mustang Bullitt GT, a performance derivative inspired by the classic Warner Bros. Pictures film.
The 2001 Mustang Bullitt GT features exterior enhancements that visually and emotionally connect it to the 1968 fastback from the film. These modifications include unique side scoops, 17-inch Bullitt-style aluminium wheels and a lowered suspension. The C-pillars and quarter panel moldings have been modified to create a unique look. Rocker-panel moldings enhance the low-to-the-ground appearance. A bold, brushed aluminium fuel filler door is prominently placed on the quarter panel. Bullitt badging and polished-rolled tailpipe tips further distinguish the car. Bullitt is available in Dark Highland Green, True Blue and Black.
Bullitt's suspension translates this power into crisp road manners. The vehicle is lowered three-fourths of an inch to generate a firmer, better-balanced ride and improved handling characteristics. Thirteen-inch Brembo front rotors and performance calipers provide impressive stopping capability. The calipers are painted red and are visible through the 17-inch wheel spokes when the car is parked or when it is cruising the streets of San Francisco.
Inside, Bullitt features performance bucket seats with Dark Charcoal leather trim. A brushed aluminium shifter ball, shifter bezel, door sill plates with Bullitt nomenclature and aluminium pedal covers accent the interior's performance appearance. The instrument cluster gives a modern look to 1960s interiors with unique curved numeric speedometer graphics and a white-lit background. Page 1 of 1
