If you’ve been watching JJ Abrams’ Alcatraz TV series on FOX you most probably have noticed the Bullitt Mustang appearing in the background. There’s no coincidence the producers chose a Bullitt Mustang as Detective Rebecca Madsen’s car of choice, after all, the series shares the same streets of San Francisco as the famous chase scene from the movie Bullitt. So it’s quite fitting that the season finale has included a tribute to this original scene, this time with a 2013 Mustang.
A few years back the guys over at Mustangs Plus commissioned a great project to recreate a Bullitt Mustang using one of the then new Dynacorn bodies. Working with Dynacorn and The Restomod Shop they managed to finish the project to an amazing standard and produce a great recreation clip of the chase scene from the movie.

We’ve all seen the famous chase scene from Bullitt but have you seen it re-enacted in 1/32 scale? I bet not. Well now one devoted UK slot-car fan has set about creating such a thing. User ’emigre’ has been painstainkly building the ultimate set with stunning detail. The professional photographer has been using his know-how to achieve some stunning shots which you can see in the video after the jump.
The guys over at Autoblog have posted up a fantastic and some would say rare behind-the-scenes video from the movie Bullitt. The movie is best known for one of the best car chase scenes in movie history. Check out the full 10-minute “making of” documentary after the jump. Oh and I’ve included the original chase scene for good measure.
