THE 2008 BULLITT

Recommended Posts

Thought I'd compile everything I've learned thus far about the Bullitt from a variety of sources, most of which are very reliable. Below are the exact statements that provide the latest details about the car, some from other Mustang forums, some from communiques I have received personally from different insiders (those are in actual quotations) >>

 

-- The 'Bullitt' IS actually at Cobo.

 

-- 7,400 units to be produced.

 

-- 325 HP.

 

-- "The Bullitt is Highland Green only...and it is a dead nuts '67 Highland Green!!!!"

 

-- "NO fake hood or side scoops on the Bullitt. They are trying to duplicate the original a little closer...which was what I think they accomplished."

 

-- "The 2008 is mostly a FESM (Front End Sheet Metal) update....but again..minor."

 

-- So far, the parts showing up in Ford's cataloguing system include:

 

- Bullit Grille

 

- Bullit Package to Have Unique Brake Calipers! Front And Rear. Will use same Pads and Rotors as Gt but Unique.

 

- Strut Brace Bullit Specific.

 

- Bullit Faux Trunk Gas Lid

 

- Bullit Door Sills

 

 

Finally, apparently, the two pics below are "very, very close to the actual car" >>

Hope this helps! :beerchug:

 

Anyone with additional confirmed info please feel free to add to this thread - let's make it the official thread for concrete Bullitt updates!

Well - this should get some folks lathered up!

 

Looks sweet.

 

Spoiler delete - retro rims - (one pic shows a chrome outside mirror and door handle?) - lowered - the blacked-out grille looks good from a distance, but not sure how that going to look up close - seems to have a different hood - recessed louvers (which I might go for if available) - and a clean looking front clip.

 

These will sell very quickly.

 

Maybe my '09 driver? :hyper:

 

Needs a bit more h.p. though.

 

Great post, BC - thanks, man.

Very nice, hope it makes to production as shown, the grille and the height, they seem to make the car. :banana piano: couldn't find a highland green banana :hysterical:

 

That green matches the Grinch to a "T".

 

Is that concrete info. :ohsnap:

So is anyone else surprised that there were NO details of the Bullitt at the Detroit Auto Show? I was sure we would see something displayed at Detroit but we got zip.

 

Of course, I would personally prefer details on a Boss 302 with a hot 5.0 Cammer under the hood but I'm that's just my personal preference

Latest word is that the Bullitt will bow next November. Yeah, I know, that's pretty damned late...but that's the latest word.

 

A 2008MY run only for 5 or 6 months of production. Numbers are going to be low, only about 6-7K cars produced ?
