2011 Ford Mustang GT: Bring Back the Bullitt
May 06, 2011
I've always thought the two iterations of the Mustang Bullitt (2001 and 2008-2009) were super cool. If Ford were to offer one based on the latest model, I'd be very tempted to buy one should fortunes ever allow. The way our long-termer is equipped comes close to what I think a new Bullitt should get. Actually, a Boss 302 but without all the visual extravagance would make a great Bullitt.
But here's my official list of what I'd want: the Boss 302's 444-hp engine; slightly firmer suspension tuning; the Brembo brakes; Torq-Thrust style wheels; the shorter rear-end gearing with the limited-slip; the Recaro front seats; and the Bullitt specific de-badging and Dark Highland Green paint.
