Have you seen the 1968 movie called Bullitt staring Steve McQueen and this Highland Green 1968 Mustang GT fastback? If you haven't, you better go out and get the movie and watch it. The movie has the best car chase scenes ever filmed. The scene featured this Mustang chasing two hit-men in a black 1968 Dodge Charger R/T 440 Magnum. It was 9 minutes and 42 seconds long. Speeds exceeded 110 mph and Steve McQueen did most of the actual driving!

2001 Bullitt Green Mustang GT Bullitt with a 270hp, 281 cubic inch, 4.6 liter, electronic fuel injected, single overhead cam, V8, special Bullitt engine. Ford had a Bullitt optioned 2001 Mustang which was based on the 1968 fastback driven by Steve McQueen in the detective movie Bullitt. Bullitt modifications included unique side scoops, 17-inch American Racing aluminum wheels, a lowered suspension, modified C-pillars, special quarter panel molding, rocker panel moldings, brushed aluminum fuel cap door, special Bullitt badging, polished-rolled tailpipe, and came in Dark Highland Green and True Blue and Black. The original 1968 Mustang fastback used in the movie was Dark Highland Green. The movie's director called for speeds of 75 to 80 mph, but the cars (including the ones containing the cameras) reached speeds of over 110 mph on surface streets. Filming of the chase scene took three weeks, resulting in 9 minutes and 42 seconds of film. During the chase scene, the Charger loses six hubcaps and has different ones missing at different times. The production company was denied permission to film on the Golden Gate Bridge.
