Whether it’s the original or the remake, there’s no mistaking the signature roar of Ford’s “Bullitt” Mustang. According to Road and Track, the Mustang GT helped invent the modern cinema car chase with its appearance in the 1968 Steve McQueen film “Bullitt,” and to commemorate the film’s 50th anniversary, Ford recently revealed a souped-up 2019 special edition called the Mustang Bullitt.
The classic green Ford Mustang GT that served as the “hero car” in the 1968 Steve McQueen film Bullitt is heading to Washington, D.C., where it will go on display in celebration of the 54th anniversary of the Blue Oval’s iconic pony car.
One of the surprises of this year’s Detroit Auto Show was the reveal of the last surviving 1968 Mustang that was actually used in the Bullitt movie. The car was displayed next to the new model, and was around for the public days. But in case you couldn’t make it to Detroit to see it, you’ll have another opportunity in Washington D.C.
