Alcatraz tv show to reenact Bullitt chase scene with 2013 Mustang

Alcatraz Bullitt Chase Scene

The Ford Mustang has the honor of being involved with perhaps the most iconic chase scene in history, with Steve Mcqueen piloting a 1968 Mustang Fastback in the movie Bullitt. The chase scene has spawned various reenactments in different forms, although none can really capture the magic of the original.

That said, the Fox television series Alcatraz will be doing their very best effort to replicate the Bullitt chase in an upcoming episode. The show recently filmed various scenes of the chase in the streets of San Francisco using a brand new 2013 Mustang.

“We’re just trying to recreate every single shot and add some more -so a lot of sliding around the corners, a lot of getting close to things,” says stunt driver Jack Gill. “It’s really easy to drive around slow, but when they say come around it at 70 miles an hour,  it’s a little different.” said Gill.

“They knew exactly the streets we need to recreate the car chase, so we’re actually on some of the streets, which is fun,” says director Jack Bender.

The chase scene will be aired on the Alcatraz season finale on March 26th.

    I watched the move drive and day tryed the same thing but what killed it for me was the 5.0
    Was a auto not a 6speed. So this tv show might just have 1 of the best scenes with a mustang
    In a long time. I can’t wait to watch this and to have a 2013 5.0 in Jesus’s name I will. Thanks for the Info.
