IT'S one of the most famous car scenes from the movies and now Ford has announced it will cost £47,145 to get behind the wheel of its Mustang Bullitt.

Decked out to resemble the car driven by Steve McQueen in the Bullitt film 50 years ago, the special edition Mustang has an uprated 5.0-litre V8 under the bonnet developing 459ps.

With the extra power and mated to a six-speed manual transmission the new Mustang is good for 163mph - up 8mph over the standard Mustang GT.

The Mustang Bullitt sees the introduction of a special Dark Highland Green metallic paint finish - it's also available in black - and comes with its own 19-inch five-spoke alloy wheels and plenty of Bullitt features.

Red pained Brembo brake callipers complete the image while inside the car is fitted with Recaro sports seats finished in leather with green detailing. There's also a numbered badge on the instrument panel.

The Mustang Bullitt made its European debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March and Ford has now revealed a right-hand drive production run which will last until June 2019.

Other features on the Mustang Bullitt include a B&O 1,000 watt sound system and a white cue ball gear knob as on the original car.

It's being produced to mark the 50 anniversary of the Warner Bros. film and while the Mustang Bullitt is manual only it comes with an uprated chassis and can be fitted with Ford's new MagnaRide suspension adaptive suspension system for an extra £1,600.

The special edition Mustang - which costs £5,400 more than the standard V8 GT - made its UK debut at the American Speedfest show at Brands Hatch and first deliveries are expected in September.
