Mustang Shelby GT500 will have a 700-plus horsepower: Ford

  • With 700-plus horsepower the 2019 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 should be expected to easily clear the 200 mph top speed limit of its predecessor

To mark the 50 anniversary of Bullitt, the iconic cult film which featured a dark green Mustang GT in a starring role alongside Steve McQueen, the new 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt, driven by the actor's grand-daughter Molly, appears in a new video in which she races a Dodge Charger to obtain the last spot in a parking lot. The 12-inch LCD instrument cluster is standard, but the Bullitt package includes a unique start-up screen, and that high tech gauge setup is paired with Ford's premium infotainment system. The Dearborn automaker said the GT500 will be the "pinnacle of Mustang performance and highlights the innovation, ingenuity, and passion of Ford Performance". It's loaded to the gills with retro-modern throwbacks - things like chrome grille and window surrounds, Torq Thrust-style wheels, and a cue-ball shift knob.

Ford will unleash its most powerful production model of all time in 2019 when the 520kW-plus (700hp-plus) Mustang Shelby GT500 goes on sale.

Wouldn't a nice, classic-looking set of analog gauges have been more appropriate? But the original Bullitt movie vehicle didn't have them, and nor did the last iteration of the special-edition Bullitt Mustang back in 2008.


One hundred percent of the 2019 Mustang Bullitt auction proceeds will be provided to Boys Republic to help children in desperate need find within themselves the resources and skills to begin meaningful lives on their own. Buyers shouldn't be given the option of ruining their cars with that nonsense.

Ford already caught the industry napping a little by unexpectedly announcing the Mustang Bullitt at this year's Detroit Auto Show, but some commentators had hoped the Blue Oval would have been bolder and gone further by revealing a new Shelby GT500.
