The Bullitt Mustang Wasn’t Even The Best Car In Bullitt

Ford introduced the latest edition of its Bullitt Mustang inspired by the 1968 Steve McQueen classic cop flick at this year’s Detroit Auto Show, the first of which went to auction and sold for $300,000.

The 2018 Ford Mustang Bullitt has shown up just in time for the 50th anniversary of the film and its epic car chase scene.
