Limited Run Of Steve McQueen Edition Bullitts Pack Up To 800 HP

Before the 2019 Mustang Bullitt even hits the streets of San Francisco, you can order one that is of a higher caliber. Created by a who’s who of performance aftermarket heavyweights —SteedaMcQueen RacingGalpin Auto Sports, HRE Wheels, and — this special edition is even backed by the Hollywood legend’s son.

“Ford’s Mustang has always been a big part of my dad’s legend. I wanted to kick the already strong performance up several notches without losing that essential style that makes this car so desirable. Less is more,” Chad McQueen, professional racer and Steve McQueen’s only son, said. “This special edition reflects the lessons my dad ingrained in me about what made his personal cars so desirable.”

If the 2019 Mustang Bullitt isn’t special enough for you, you can step up your game with Steve McQueen Edition in 500- or 800-horsepower versions.

They also feature complete Steeda performance suspensions that lower the car by 1 inch in front and out back. (Photo Credit: Steeda Performance Vehicles)

Featuring numerous special touches, including Steve McQueen Edition door sill plates, emblems, and serialization plates, this special edition is subtle in its styling, which fits with the Bullitt Mustang DNA. It does feature a lower stance and some gorgeous Steve McQueen Edition 20-inch FlowForm Wheels by HRE that set it apart from the already special third-generation Bullitt Mustangs it is based upon.

Chad McQueen officially announced this special edition Bullitt at the Friends of Steve McQueen car show at Boys Republic in Chino Hills, California, on June 2, 2018.

Don’t be fooled into thinking this one is all about image, however. The Steve McQueen Edition 2019 Mustang Bullitt would definitely make its namesake smile. And, the Dodge wouldn’t have a chance at escaping this Highland Green machine. Nope. This car features a full complement of performance upgrades from the engine to a full Steeda suspension. Plus, you can add a lot more firepower underhood courtesy of an optional Whipple supercharger upgrade that pushes it beyond 800 horsepower.
