Steeda Releases New Steve McQueen Edition Mustang Bullitt

The new Bullitt is awesome. No question about it. But Steeda Autosports knew it could be even better. Steeda has “taken the Bullitt to the next level” and designed a Steve McQueen Edition Mustang Bullitt package.

Steve McQueen is a legend in the automotive world, and most certainly in the Mustang realm. Though he’s been gone for decades, the rebellious badass remains a figure synonymous with Mustang performance and the ultimate thrill ride.

His character, Frank Bullitt, in the 1968 film “Bullitt” was a San Francisco Police Lieutenant with an affinity for a Dark Highland Green 1968 Mustang.

It goes without saying then that Steeda would intend to memorialize such a figure in the creation of a specialty Mustang. Steeda worked alongside McQueen Racing and Chad McQueen to design and build the official Steve McQueen Edition Bullitt Mustang, of which only 300 will be built per year. The stunner features a new Ford Mustang Bullitt as its base, with substantial chassis, suspension, and drivetrain upgrades. Steeda counts the addition of over 27 individual components, all designed, engineered, and manufactured in the USA.

“The Steve McQueen Edition Program Team had no limits in their quest to incorporate key components that strategically work cohesively together delivering maximum performance,” says Dario Orlando, President of Steeda. “The entire Steeda team is proud to bring our over 30-years of experience in designing, engineering, and manufacturing high-performance Mustang components to this exclusive developmental team.”

Working together to design a “modern reincarnation” of the wheel found on the original 1968 movie Mustang proved successful. The resulting Steve McQueen Edition aluminum wheel features a staggered wheel fitment, wrapped in Nitto NT555 G2 High Performance tires (275/35R20 in the front, and 315/35R20 in the rear).

There is a specialty Whipple supercharger option available, good for 775 horsepower. You can catch a picture of the blower below – how cool is that green?!

“Ford’s Mustang has always been a big part of my dad’s legend,” said Chad McQueen. “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. This Special Edition reflects the lessons my dad ingrained in me about what made his personal cars so desirable.”

Again, only 300 serialized versions will be available globally per year, so gets yours while they last!  If you already own a new Bullitt, Steeda can perform an upgrade, but you can also have a recently-ordered vehicle shipped directly from Ford to one of Steeda’s assembly locations. Haven’t ordered your Bullitt yet? No worries! Steeda will work directly with the dealership of your choice to place your order.
