In celebration of the 40th anniversary of the original 1968 Steve Mcqueen film Bullitt, Ford released a limited edition production run Bullitt edition Mustang GT for 2008. The image wasn't the only thing being celebrated. Ford packed the 7,700 Bullitt edition Mustang GTs with a 4.6 liter V8 capable of producing 315 horsepower at 6,000 RPM and 325 lb-ft. of torque at 4,250 RPM.

Now we've seen many releases from AUTOart on the various Mustang releases, but none so iconic as a 40th anniversary edition of the car that set the bar for car chases in 1968. AUTOart packs in the details with this Mustang release as they always do. What makes this one interesting is the little details they managed to put into this model for the collector to take in front and center.

Some of the more prominent changes include Bullit kick plates you will find when you open the doors, a Bullit steering wheel, and rear badge replaced with Bullit badge and cross hairs. On the interior you'll also find a hand machined aluminum swirl pattern replicated dash inserts with chrome accented gauges and shifter knob. Another exterior detail is that the Bullitt version has unique dual exhaust.

Although the Bullitt was originaly produced in Dark Highlands Green, AUTOArt also released this black version as a companion to the official green version. The black version is the only other color Ford offered for non-purists. It features black painted wheels with matching brake calipers and visble disc brakes. Both feature Bullitt details and unique mesh ponly-less grill. The green version does however feature the Dark Argent Gray wheels and should have matching and brake calipers.

The model is of course done with AUTOart's high quality and detail packed attention we've come to know. The glossy black paint on this sample was perfect as always. The model comes in a clear plastic box with base and easily unscrews from the packaging. For all you Mustang and Bullitt fans, you owe it to yourself to have one of these in your collection.
