Next month’s Goodwood Festival of Speed will feature a Hollywood icon as a special guest star at the event.

Only recently rediscovered after three decades in storage, the 1968 Ford Mustang GT driven by Steve McQueen in the legendary 10-minute car chase during the film Bullitt will make its first UK appearance at the 2018 Goodwood Festival of Speed, which takes places between 12-15 July.

Owner Sean Kiernan, who inherited the car from his late father, is bringing the car over from the USA in conjunction with Ford, with the car set to tackle the 1.16-mile Goodwood Hillclimb course. It will appear alongside the special Ford Mustang Bullitt, a limited edition version of the current Mustang produced by Ford to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the flim.

Another special Ford Mustang in attendance is a one-off 700bhp example in Eagle Squadron livery, co-created by world champion drifter Vaughn Gittin Jr who will pilot the monster machine up the Hillclimb course.
