There was a time in Australia when Ford used to make muscle car. Unfortunately, this is not the case anymore as the local production has been phased out along with Ford’s FPV Falcon. Now, if an Australia customer wished to own a muscle car then they would have to import it from America. For example, the newest Ford Mustang Bullitt is one of them, but it is not cheap. The exact price of Ford Mustang Bullitt in Australia is AUD $73,688 which is by no extent cheap in any currency. If we try to convert the price in American currency at current exchange rate, it stands at $54,350.
The price is a premium of $7,755 over the special edition version in US. In other words, it is expensive by AUD $11,000 than Mustang GT fastback. Keeping aside the whopping price, customers from Down Under would be getting their hands on upgraded Mustang. Ford Mustang Bullitt will be powered with 5.2 liter V8 engine that transfers power to the rear axle. This particular engine offers 462 horsepower and 556Nm (410 lb-ft) of torque and is mated with six-speed manual transmission. Interestingly, the US version of Mustang offers 480 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque. It will make this Mustang Bullitt one of the most potent muscle car ever offered in Australia.
Other features in Ford Mustang Bullitt for Australia are MagneRide suspension, variable exhaust, a host of driver-assistance systems, and others. The exterior is covered in Dark Highland Green paintjob and sits in 19 inch gloss black wheels that are complemented by the usage of Brembo brake calipers and few special badging to go around. Ford Australia will import 300 vehicles and each one of them will be individually numbered for the market. Mustang has been the bestselling sports car in Australia for last two years and best seller in the world for last three years.
