This is the one you want, the Steve McQueen Edition Bullitt Mustang, which is tuned by Steeda.

Why though?

Well, the Steeda Q500 is a machine worlds apart form a standard 5.0 litre Mustang. The handling is so crisp and direct, the whole car feels tighter due to the numerous under the skin upgrades. The Steve McQueen Edition builds on that. Steve would want a car that handled right, right?

Only 300 are available worldwide, so this is a super limited rarest of the rare unicorn.

Some of the coolest features include the rear quarter window louvres and those stunning HRE wheels which are a modern take on the originals.
