BUL­LITT FILM FACTS

Top Gear (Malaysia) - - Bullitt, Reloaded -

1 There were not two, but three iden­ti­cal Mus­tang GT 390s pre­pared for the film

2 The smoke you see on Steve’s re­verse burnout came from a smoke can­is­ter, not the tyres

3 The crim­i­nal’s Dodge Charger loses no fewer than eight hub caps dur­ing the chase

4 A green VW, yel­low cab and a white Ply­mouth Fire­bird all ap­pear in the chase mul­ti­ple times

5 Bud Ekins, who slides the mo­tor­cy­cle at the end, also jumped the side­car out­fit in The Great Es­cape

6 At the end of the chase, the Charger sup­pos­edly smashes into a gas sta­tion, yet can be seen in the back­ground, be­hind the ex­plo­sion

7 The leg­endary mus­cle-car chase scene won the film an Academy Award for edit­ing
