Behold: the Aviar R67 – a conceptual all electric version of the 1967 Ford Mustang by Russian startup company Aviar.
The company claims a 0-100km/h acceleration time of 2.2 seconds and a 480km range with all-wheel drive, a carbon fibre chassis (mimicking the original first generation muscle car) and a lightweight custom tubular aluminium subframe.
It may never make it to production, but still.
No ordinary 1968 Ford Mustang, rather, one of two fastbacks driven by Steve McQueen in Peter Yates’ ultra stylish Bullitt (1968).
This is the ‘hero’ car (the battle-scarred stunt double has since disappeared, having been sold to a salvage yard after filming).
Formerly believed to have been lost (or, worse still, scrapped like its stunt double), it’s actually belonged to the same New Jersey family since 1974 and was unveiled this week at the 2018 Detroit Motor Show, close to the 50th anniversary of the cinematic car chase that sealed its reputation.
Yours for between €2.5 and €4.0 million. Were it for sale. Which it’s not.
Meanwhile, less interestingly, Ford has announced a Bullitt-themed 2019 Mustang.
