The Bullitt Come back

Way back in the 1960’s, the Mustang Bullitt hit the Hollywood screen with exhilarating car scenes. And now Ford’s racing pony comes back jam packed with the latest Ford Racing Technology features for its 2008 model year come back.

The special chassis and suspension tweaks make the Mustang Bullitt a versatile race icon. The new 4.6 liter V-8 engine built under its hood turns out a roaring 315 horsepower and 325 pound-feet of torque.

“The 2008 Mustang Bullitt embodies the true spirit of the 1968 movie car,” said Derrick Kuzak, group vice president, Global Product Development. “Like the original Bullitt, this car dials the driving dynamics up a notch for Mustang enthusiasts who love the performance, handling and the sweet sound of Ford power that only Mustang can deliver.”

Early next year, you can expect the Mustang Bullitt to gallop in showrooms and dealership with a tag price of $31,075 which already include the destination charges. Ford limited the production of the Mustang Bullitt to only 7,700 units for the U.S and Canada.

“The 2008 Mustang Bullitt delivers balanced performance,” said Paul Randle, chief engineer. “Comfort is not compromised for performance. Performance is on demand. You can easily take Bullitt from the track to the street and back onto the track with confidence.”

The movie that gave the Mustang Bullitt its name celebrates its 40th year of release by Warner Bros. Pictures and the launching of this all-new vehicle is nothing but a great time. In the movie, legendary actor Steve McQueen drove a Dark Highland Green 1968 Mustang GT that gained cult status among Mustang enthusiasts, thanks to a seven-minute scene that film and car buffs believe defined the modern movie car chase.

“The machined appliqué differentiates the Bullitt from any other Mustang in the line-up,” said Gaffka. “It’s also perfect for the Bullitt. The graphic presentation pings back the feel of the ‘60s while still staying true to the Mustang’s modern interior design.”
