Its unveiling of the revived 2019 Ranger made pickup fans' day; now it's muscle auto fanatics' turn to cheer, with the launch of the long-awaited Mustang Bullitt and the announcement of the new 2019 Shelby GT500. No, the GT500 takes the fastest Ford Mustang back to its tyre-shredding tank-slapping self.

Ford this week launched a limited edition Mustang Bullitt at the Detroit Auto Show 2018, to tie-in with the 50th anniversary of a Steve McQueen film that shares the same name, in which he drove the original 1968 Mustang GT Fastback.

Acer Chromebook 11 adds USB-C, but doesn't fix the screen
Having said that, one of the best things about the Acer Chromebook 11 is that it comes with two USB Type-C 3.1 Gen 1 ports. Meanwhile, its CB311-8H counterpart will use the same LCD panel, but rely on the trackpad for control instead of touch.

The last GT500, built during model years 2013 and 2014, had a 5.8-liter supercharged V8 that produced 662 hp and 631 pound-feet of torque, as well as a top speed of 200 miles per hour. The 12-inch LCD instrument cluster is standard, but the Bullitt package includes a unique start-up screen, and that high tech gauge setup is paired with Ford's premium infotainment system. This is, after all, a cool, classy version of the 'Stang made to pay homage to the starring vehicle from a 1968 thriller movie. It sports 19-inch "torque thrust" alloy wheels with disc brakes and gets a black front grille. And if the dark green colour isn't your thing, well, you can always opt for black. He said that the new Mustang "will be the most powerful street-legal production Ford ever". A new "Open Air Induction System" mated with an 87mm throttle body, the intake manifold from the Shelby GT350 and an engine calibration help the new Bullitt Mustang make "at least" 475 horsepower - up 15 ticks from the standard Mustang GT. Ford did say "at least" 475hp, so official figures could be higher. It was designed by the team at Ford Performance, which integrated a number of track-developed technologies and high-performance equipment topped by an aggressive, highly aerodynamic outer shell.
