Talk of a 2018 Ford Mustang Bullitt has divided many pundits throughout 2017 but it now appears as if the car is the real deal and that it’s edging ever closer to its launch.
A member of the Mustang6g forums recently stumbled upon a 2018 Mustang that looked strikingly similar to the alleged Bullitt variant first spotted as a sketch in a promo video starring Dwayne Johnson. The forum member says a commercial was being shot in Chicago when he snapped a single image of the pony car.
While the image isn’t the best quality, it does show that the Mustang Bullitt will be sold in an eye-catching shade of dark green dubbed Dark Highland Green and come installed with five-spoke wheels with black spokes and chrome accents. It’s difficult to tell if the rumored rear window louvers are also present.
According to reports, the Mustang Bullitt will be sold exclusively with the GT’s 5.0-liter Coyote V8 and available alongside both Ford’s 10-speed automatic transmission and six-speed manual ‘box.
If Ford has started shooting the commercial for the Bullitt, we wouldn’t be surprised to see it launch at the Detroit Auto Show in January.
