FORD AT GOOD­WOOD

Fast Ford - - News -

Vis­i­tors to the Good­wood Fes­ti­val of Speed this year were treated to a mouth­wa­ter­ing ar­ray of ex­cit­ing Fords, with the big­gest crowds gath­er­ing around a pair of green Mus­tangs in the ‘First Glance’ pad­dock. One was a shiny new ’Stang in Dark Highland Green, of­fer­ing 460bhp, Torque Thrust-style wheels and the iconic name ‘Bul­litt’. And the other? Un­be­liev­ably, it was the ac­tual 1968 fast­back used in the movie Bul­litt! Thought lost for years, Ford man­aged to track it down and are treat­ing it to a world tour.

An­other Mus­tang – this time a ’65 notch­back – wowed the crowds with its Siemens au­ton­o­mous tech­nol­ogy, driv­ing it­self up the hill with Lord March sit­ting in the back. Vaughn Git­tin Jr took to the hill in his 900bhp RTR drift Mus­tang as well as the Ea­gle Squadron Mus­tang GT, built for the show and to be auc­tioned off for char­ity. The im­pos­ing new Ford GT also tack­led the hill­climb, as did the mul­ti­ple rally-win­ning M-Sport Fi­esta WRC. And vis­i­tors to the Ford stand got to have a close-up look at the new Fo­cus. The mar­que brought along some­thing for everyone!
