Watch This: An Iconic Chase Redone With a Modern Mustang
MAR
26

It’s the chase scene that lives on in infamy…. You know the one we’re talking about – a 1968 Ford Mustang GT Fastback blasting through the streets of San Francisco.

If you’re wondering how that chase might look with today’s Mustang, get a load of this: The popular Fox TV show, Alcatraz, has re-created the iconic scene with a 2013 Mustang for the season finale, airing March 26, 2012, at 9 p.m. (8 p.m. central). Note that we said recreated; this is about giving a nod to both cinema and Mustang history, and to have a little fun trying it again, not to try to top it.

You can catch a sneak peak of the Mustang making its way through San Francisco at www.fox.com/alcatraz, and you can check out other Mustang videos at the official Mustang YouTube channel!

Which car do you think was cooler blasting through San Francisco, the 1968 or the 2013 Mustang?

Ray S The Mustang is the wrong color and the Daimler Charger has two too many doors! LOL! Seriously though, some classics - film/music/TV/fashion - should just be left alone; this chase scene clearly falls under that header...

Alex P You can't beat the classics. The chase just looks so much more authentic with the '68. Just watched both a couple minutes ago and man does McQueen have skill. His tires were smoking in reverse for crying out loud!

Gregg S Loved the green VW coming down the hill as in Bullitt. Fantastic director/producer attention to detail and nostalgia.

Sam Herbert I'm sorry but although the Mustang is sweet, I think it's typical that they use an older (2006-2010) Charger. They should've used a 2011 or 2012 Charger R/T (the one in the old Bullitt was a 1968 R/T, brand new at the time).

Chris S Clicked on FOX link above and did not get clip. Tried clicking on a couple things on the FOX site and no clip. If a link can't go directly to the video, t's not worth trying to search for it.
