Introducing the long-awaited facelifted version of the current Mustang to the South African market early next will be this, the 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt. Inspired by the 1968 movie – which contains one of the greatest chase scenes of all times with Steve McQueen behind the wheel of a Mustang – the Bullitt features a Dark Highland Green paint job with chrome accents, a set of Recaro Ebony Black leather-trimmed seats and unique green accent stitching. Included in this is, of course, a thumping V8... The 5,0-litre, naturally aspirated unit has been stroked to produce 353 kW and 570 N.m of torque.

Ford South Africa will import the Bullitt in limited numbers. Pricing and spec levels will be confirmed closer to the time.

CAR's technical editor Nicol Louw is currently on the international launch. Don't miss his driving impressions later this week.
