2001 Ford Mustang Bullitt GT 2dr Coupe (4.6L 8cyl 5M)
What can I say.. Ford finally made the
no-frills GT we've always wanted. The
emphasis is on under-stated looks,
torque and exclusiveity. Spend 5 grand
on a supercharger and you've got
yourself the ultimate sleeper. Vette
Exahaust note, SVO Intake, red brake
With the exhast and intake mods, I
think even Ford was a little
disapointed that it made only 15 more
horses than the stock GT. That said,
the torque is signficantly more stout
than the GT and there is an obvious
seat-of-the-pants difference between

Love the RWD and V-8 power. Don't get
the V-6. I like the firm leather
seats. Headroom is poor, but expected
in a Mustang. Averaged 18-20 MPG over
last two years on mixed HWY/city use.
Good sound system in the GT. No major
problems with the car in the first 36K
miles other than the CD player jamming
discs. Dealer fixed w/ no problems.
260 HP, 6-CD sound system, leather
Lose the hood scoupe, it decreases
visibility and doesn't look that great.

We bought the car new and 8 hours
later, I had my first speeding ticket.
What a fun car to drive...with a radar
detector. Interior fit and finish is
lacking and the convertible top allows
any and all outside noise to enter,
but that's where the Mach stero system
shines. It drowns out all the outside
noise while you put the car through
it's paces. The V8 provides plenty of
zip. We had a 6 cylinder version of
the 1996 Mustang for 4 years and it
struggled to get out of it's own way.
In my opinion, the 6 cylinder version
of this car is a big waste of your
money. Be sure to include an extra
$250 for a good radar detector.
By far this car shines with the top
down on a sunny day and the stereo
turned way up.

I've owned a 2001 Mustang Convertible
for about a year now and I must say it
is a vast improvement over the boring
Front-wheel drive sedan I owned
before. The power with the V6 is
adequate, though not stellar--but a
few aftermarket performance parts can
solve that problem. The car is also
surprisingly sturdy, handling a
collison with a toyota pick up with
minimal damage. By far its best
attribute is its agility.
