History has no straight lines. Instead it moves in a circle - forever repeating itself, always returning to the same moments. It comes as no surprise, therefore, that the iconic Mustang Bullitt is making its way back to Seattle.
In 1968 Ford - and Steve McQueen - introduced drivers to the Mustang Bullitt. This pony powerhouse (which was a modified GT 390 Fastback) made its debut on the silver screen, revving through the streets of San Francisco in a film that shared its name; and it quickly became one of the most infamous platforms ever created, delivering staggering performance thanks to its sport-tuned suspension and roaring V8.
Now it seems as though the Bullitt will return to North America.
According to Fox News, a new Mustang was recently spotted in Chicago. Though it bore no badging, critics believe it to be the successor to the 1968 Bullitt - with its unique color palette (dark green paneling and silver-rimmed wheels) proving reminiscent of the original. This particular combination isn’t offered on any current pony platform and instead seems tailored for the specialty market.
This would adhere to Ford’s previous Bullitt pattern - with the company releasing limited-edition versions in both 2008 and 2009. Fox critics are certain that the Big Blue Oval is planning a major relaunch of its most iconic V8.
