On the Mustang front, the past seven days have been the week of the Bullitt. The media rush is in stark contrast to the Bullitt's understated demeanor, but with its 315 HP engine and track-tuned suspension, Steve McQueen's chase machine reincarnated deserves it. Yesterday we showed you Popular Mechanics' video of the Bullitt in action, and today we've got Ford's shot of its newest Mustang in motion pictures. The Blue Oval's piece has a lot less substance, but it still features the Bullitt sliding on pavement as if it were wearing ice skates. Check out the Mustang slip and slide after the jump.

      The thing is, that the original movie has the worst edition for a car chase, the angles and scenes repeat continuously.

      If this is the official video, is as lamest as the original film. So basically is the same.

      Honestly.......who cares. This has to be the ugliest of all the Suckstangs. With all the half-assed crap ford forces on us they'll never see my $.

      THAT VIDEO FRIGGIN' SUCKED!

      promising beginning...
      now where's the rest? :o)

      The video is lame. The car is very true to the original.
      I've become bored with endless special edition and speed shop variations of the Mustang until the Bullitt arrived.
      I'd be proud to have this Mustang in my garage.
      If only there were an automatic.
      Before the flaming begins on my comment for an automatic let me explain that shifting quickly becomes painful as a result of repairs to my right elbow after complex dislocation. I can only drive manual transmission cars without pain if they are right hand drive.

      It isn't that bad for a small production... but for Ford, I'm not too convinced. Even that Chinese (Ethiopian) commercial looks better than this.
        • 7 Years Ago
        That commercial was totally awesome.

      I'm really getting sick of hearing about this Bullitt. We get it - it's a throw back to Steve McQueen's Mustang. But it's just another damn Mustang among the multitude of special edtions that Ford keeps pumping out. Stop reporting about it already.

        As with every Mustang post someone seems to have to point this out to all the "haters" out there.

        Ford hasn't been cranking out a multitude of Mustang versions. There are only four. The GT, the V6, the Shelby, and the GT500. The rest are all created by after market companies.

        That aside I find the Bullitt version really boring. Looks like a V6 with a V8 in it. Frankly I found the movie really boring too. I mean the car chase was cool but the rest of it was zzzzzzz. In one scene we watched him shop for groceries, nothing else happened in the scene he just picked up some stuff at the store. Why do I want to see that???

      This is a nice looking car. I would have liked to see the video, but then the quality on it doesn't seem to have been too good.

      Man, everybody's a critic! There's a difference between a fully-produced :30 spot with an agency and media buy attached and a quickie video that's pretty much viral content. Geez - at least they used tripods and dutch angles and stuff!

      Say what you will about the Mustang, the fact is that most of the special editions are AFTERMARKET, and the crush of Mustang stuff out there is a testament to the vehicle's popularity.

      Oh, and this Bullitt edition looks badass - even better than the Bullitt edition they sent the SN95 Mustangs off with, which was the best that car ever got, too.

        Oh come on Dan. You know this is pretty weak for Ford, especially considering what they have done in the past. The music, the BULLET with gun shot intro that reminded me of a late 80's arcade game (the artwork in the beginning looked cool...and then that came in). The middle section is fairly good, but could use a little punching-up, and the end... exactly what was that? It could have been so much more.
        • 7 Years Ago
        Well, yes, it could have been executed better - Golgo 13 had a better intro sequence on the old 8-bit NES, but still. The thing just debuted .. like.. a couple days ago. This was obviously part of that effort.

      No way this is an official Ford video. Where is the Mustang racing through the streets of San Francisco?? They had better go back and redo this one big time.

      i've made better videos with my cell phone camera, what a piece of crap.
