Bullitt Mustang sallies forth as Goodwood tar

 

Until earlier this year, the iconic 1968 Ford Mustang GT driven by Steve McQueen in Warner Bros. Pictures’ classic film “Bullitt” was lost to history

But it will be making its first journey outside the US to appear at the 2018 Goodwood Festival of Speed, between July 12-15.

The chase sequence in the 1968 film has been voted the best of its type for all time. It was filmed using the hills in and around San Francisco and now the car will feature on the famous hill climb event up the driveway of the West Sussex stately home during the Festival. Appearing alongside will be the new special edition, Ford Mustang Bullitt, now available to order in Europe and celebrating the 50th anniversary of the classic film.

Visitors to this year’s Festival can also see the ultra-high-performance Ford GT supercar tackle the Hillclimb course while making it's Hillclimb and Forest Rally Stage debuts is the rally-winning M-Sport Ford Fiesta World Rally Championship car.

Of course, if you can’t make it to Goodwood, the team at the English Ford FordStore in Poole, part of Foray Motor Group’s flagship dealership, will happily introduce you to the delights of the latest Mustang in a more relaxed atmosphere. Call 01202 715577 to find out more.
