This Sure Looks Like a New Bullitt Mustang

Since the Voodoo bearer hasn't received any chassis or visual updates for the 2018MY mid-cycle revamp of the pony, we can't wait to see what Ford Performance has planned for the naturally aspirated machine. Ford declined our request for comment on the photos, but there are good reasons to believe the Bullitt is coming back.

Rumors about this new engine (allegedly nicknamed "Predator") are that it will have a cross-plane crank (unlike the flat-plane crankshaft of the GT350), and also that it may be making around 800 horsepower.

We expect we'll see something about the Bullitt Mustang as early as the Detroit Auto Show. And previous Mustang Bullitts have been popular enough to warrant a new edition; the previous 2008 edition proved so popular Ford extended production for a second year. This looks very much like the medallion on the 2008 Bullitt, which featured a round crosshair design with the logo from the movie Bullitt.

A new Ford Mustang Bullitt has recently been spotted during filming for a commercial in Chicago.


The auto that we (and most of the automotive world) believe is the 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt was photographed during what appeared to be a commercial or promotional video shoot in downtown Chicago.

The classic Ford Mustang in the movie Bullitt was based on the Mustang GT, with black wheels and dark green exterior paint.

The lid may have just been lifted on one the most tightly kept secrets in the muscle vehicle world: the identity of the powerplant residing under the hood of the upcoming Ford Mustang Shelby GT500.
