The Bullitt Mustang is more than a token gesture

Cars
[MUSIC] This is the bullet Special Edition Ford Mustang and we have a full car fiction film on it after this message but this film has a twist See our friends over at our sister channel CNET challenged us to shoot this film entirely on an iPhone. Now we usually invest a lot of money in great cameras and writing tools to get the most stunning car films. Well, that kind of thing that we put on the channel. But can we get close to that quality just with an iPhone. Everything that you'll see in this film, including the shot you're looking at right now Has been shot on an iPhone 11 Pro. Let's see how it goes. In 1968 Steve McQueen starred in bullet, an action thriller with one of the most famous movie car chases of all time. The car that McQueen drove was a 68 Mustang GT fastback with a 390 cubic inch VH Four speed [UNKNOWN] transmission. To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the film, Mustang Bullitt, a modified version of the five liter V8 GT version of the current generation of Mustang. But can you ever really recreate the romance of the classic muscle car? Is there anything you can do to recapture the magic of those classic rights? [MUSIC] [SOUND] I think the bullet time is a little bit of a red herring. I mean, it's nice to celebrate the movie and the paint job gives that little A bit of nostalgia. The few bits of chrome trim. Yeah they're a nice little touch. It really is a token gesture towards the movie. But that's not to say that it isn't worthwhile. You see where they've only made slight tweaks to the exterior and To the budging. They have made fairly significant change to the engine. Now 458 brake horsepower. But where it makes a really big difference is the sound. You see where the Mustang already sounded Great with its five liter VH. This bullet edition Well, they've just ramped up just that little bit and now sounds like this. [SOUND] [SOUND] Get this thing over 4200 rpm. Let's see that, and when you heard that fruity sounding engine note to the fact that most time has inherently something about it. That's old school. You feel the car more. In the car than you feel you should in a modern car. You're bouncing around a bit and it's just enough steering feel to make it sharp through the corners but there's a sense that you really have to get to know the car to drive it properly. The chassis responds really well on a twisty road like this You get rewarded for just investigating the car a little bit more, that kind of bounty nature, that throaty exhaust, how that engine now rumbles away in the background making it feel so ferocious, the way the acceleration builds It's not that modern hypercar thrust you back in your seats but that swell of power all through that soundtrack of a V8. The package together has some, some character some drama. Last thing is never going to beat many sports cars in kind of performance Stop drops, top speed acceleration. 0 to 60 is 4.6 seconds is no slouch, but there's a lot out there that can compete. It's as close as you can get in a modern car to kind of reliving that classic car nostalgia. It's not a classic Mustang, you get completely different driving experience from that but there are a little bit here and there from that story when you're driving a classic car when you tell yourself that you're doing it. That this car inherits, exaggerates and [UNKNOWN]. I might not be getting the drama of the moving bullet. But this Bullet Special Edition has its own story to tell. [MUSIC] There you have it. This was our film on the Bullet Special Edition Ford Mustang, shot entirely on the iPhone 11 Pro. Now Now there's a behind the scenes video on the CNET YouTube page, which shows the Carfection production team using the iPhone. How they did it. What difficulties they ran into. Where they succeeded and where they fell short. Definitely go over and check that out. There's a link in the description that will take you right there. If you're a regular viewer, what did you think? Do you think it held up against The look of our normal films, could you definitely tell if we hadn't told you that this don't even shot on an iPhone.
