The second generation of the Bullitt Mustang arrived on the S550 platform, and shortly after, Steve McQueen’s son Chad and Steeda Performance Vehicles joined forces to offer an enhanced version of the Bullitt inspired by the iconic film. The company took the already epic car to a new level with the addition of a Whipple supercharger, Steeda’s proven suspension upgrades, and a slew of Steve McQueen-themed visual additions. Now, the team has plans to bring something similar to the next-generation S650 Mustang. Below is all the information thus far on the 2024 Ford Mustang Bullitt from Steeda and McQueen Racing.
S650 Ford Mustang Steve McQueen and Steeda Bullitt: Details
The two companies plan to rev things up with the seventh-generation S650 Ford Mustang. Offerings include naturally aspirated and supercharged versions sporting McQueen signature Mulholland wheels, Nitto tires, Steeda suspensions, and several styling and customization options. Naturally, these vehicles will be limited editions and likely come at a hefty price, primarily if sold at an auction a few years from now.
The mission was to create a Mustang that delivered the power to rival Dodge’s modern muscle machines but could still carve up the canyons and come out on top in a chase scene. Since Dodge won’t be making high-performance V8 engine muscle cars after this year, this may be the best way to gain access to that level of performance for the years to come. If the combination of classic McQueen swagger and modern Steeda performance excites you, watch for the first custom-built McQueen Racing Mustangs with three-year/36,000-mile limited warranties to arrive this summer.
Steeda Performance is working on upgrading the next-generation Coyote V8 in the new Mustang, which should boost power to up to 800 horsepower. Whether or not Saleen is an “authorized tuner” for the new Mustang remains to be seen, as Ford is following in General Motors’ footsteps of making tuning less accessible for the aftermarket world.
