Bullitt Mustang and Le Mans-winning 917K to feature at Amelia Island
The 1968 'Bullitt' Ford Mustang Fastback and a 1971 Le Mans-winning Porsche 917K will feature at the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance across March 9-11
The recently rediscovered 1968 Ford Mustang Fastback that starred in the cult Steve McQueen movie Bullitt will feature at the 23rd Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance across March 9-11.
After a 30-year period away from the public eye, the legendary Ford Mustang was unveiled at the 2018 North American International Auto Show last month.
On screen it was one of only two Mustangs used during filming and was the only car driven by Hollywood icon Steve McQueen.
When production wrapped the vehicle was bought by Bob Kiernan and remained with his family ever since, despite McQueen attempting to buy it back several times before his untimely death in 1980.
Kiernan’s son Sean then decided to return the car to the road, while preserving its patina, and it was presented to the media alongside a special 2018 model year Mustang 'Bullitt' Edition built to celebrate the movie’s 50th anniversary.
Now Sean will display the car, which carries an estimated value of approximately $5million, at Amelia Island.
The show will also feature the 1971 Le Mans-winning Porsche 917K, as raced by Formula 1 driver Gijs van Lennep and Dr Helmut Marko – now more renowned for his work as the head of the Red Bull F1 team’s driver programme.
That year it set a new average speed record of 138.089mph which remained unbeaten for 39 years following the addition of chicanes on the Mulsanne Straight. Similarly, the car set a distance record of 3,315 miles that stood until 2010.
The 917K still carries its Martini Racing livery and will be presented on loan from the Porsche Museum based in Stuttgart, Germany.
