    The Ford Mustang Bullitt™ is back for 2008, making its first public showing at the Los Angeles International Auto Show on Nov. 13. Blending the best Mustang ever with the latest Ford Racing technology, this modern classic lives up to the magic of the movie “Bullitt” by delivering a new-generation Mustang Bullitt with the perfect balance of power, performance and a look of quiet intensity. Bullitt screams into dealerships early next year. Please visit www.media.ford.com in November for more information.

    Ford had the opportunity to really make something special here, but all they're doing is putting the same shit that's on a Shelby GT onto this car, and re-badging it BULLITT w/ some minor cosmetic tweaks.

    BFD.

    Not unlike the Camaro SS.

    The SS should have always been what the Z28 was, and the Z28 should have been a stripped down 1LE with higher HP.

    Whatever...

    The bullit is more geared for the name and extra price dealers can get on it, not really about the performance. If you want performance go Boss 302

    That 20 hp and same suspension comes standard on the Shelby GT, and Hertz GT-H.

    And I have that same shit on my car from FRPP aftermarket--it's less than 2500$ in parts.

    What I expected was more than a repackaging of an already proliferated setup!

    The SS was rated 20hp higher than the Z28. Not sure if this was sandbagging though.

    teh twuf. Ford has always had the 5.0 crate engine laying around but im pretty sure they weren't going to use it/make it better untill Chevy announced the coming of the Camaro. Either war 425-435 n/a out of a 5.0L is damn good, and should sound insane

    I saw a blue and white car that looked exactly like this a month or two ago and it was the loudest mustang I have ever heard. I don't know if it was a custom or if it was a road test or what but it was freaking loud going down the highway.

    Not even close faggot :ugh2:. 305 -Z28 / 320-SS in '98 with power gain of 5hp in '01 for both. TQ was 335-350 range for both. Fuck all the new shit with 30 different offerings of similar crap. 03/04 cobra is still the only thing worth buying and that looks good.
