    The November 2019 issue of Motor Trend has an interesting article about the 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt tribute car.

    Like the original Bullitt, it comes in Highland Green with black wheels and a cue ball shifter for the 6-speed manual. The body is clean with no wings o badges, except for the bull's eye on the trunk.

    The engine is a re-tuned 5.0-liter V-8 engine generating 475 horsepower-15 more than the GT-and 420 lb-ft of torque and tops out at 163 mph. It was also tuned for a distinct exhaust note through the new tips. The extra power comes thanks to the GT350's larger, freer-flowing intake manifold, its bigger (87mm versus 80mm) throttle body, and an open airbox (needed because of the differences in the Bullitt and GT350 hoods). Performance of 0-60 mph is 4.2 sec. For all of this, the Mustang owner pays $47,590- an additional $11,240 upcharge over a standard GT.

    It's too bad that Dodge never built its own tribute Charger car from the movie.

    from what I have heard, it only comes with a manual transmission, no auto is available. well there is a big difference to the charger though, big ass 2 door car compared to a grocery getter. at least the mustang stayed true to it original creation somewhat...lol
