    ACTION! FORD DEALERS BRACE FOR SUMMER BLOCKBUSTER AS ORDER BANKS OPEN FOR EXCLUSIVE 480-HORSEPOWER MUSTANG BULLITT


    2019_Bullitt_480_004.jpg

    DEARBORN, Mich., March 29, 2018 – Like the 1968 hit movie “Bullitt,” Ford dealerships across America are bracing for a late summer blockbuster as orders have officially begun for the limited-edition 480-horsepower 2019 Mustang Bullitt.

    The iconic 2019 Mustang Bullitt traces its roots to the legendary Highland Green 1968 Mustang GT fastback Steve McQueen thrashed in the action thriller “Bullitt” 50 years ago. Complete with classic cue ball shifter, the 2019 Bullitt bundles the latest Mustang GT Premium and Performance Package content in a sleek, understated design – while packing a hefty punch.

    The new Mustang Bullitt delivers even more power, thanks to its performance open air intake, Mustang Shelby GT350 intake manifold, plus a larger 87-millimeter throttle body and unique powertrain control module calibrations delivering 480 horsepower and 420 lb.-ft. of torque* and deliver a top speed of 163 mph – an 8 mph increase versus the latest Mustang GT. A fully active black NitroPlate™ quad-tip exhaust comes standard.

    Bullitt customers have two color choices – Shadow Black and classic Dark Highland Green. Appointments include subtle chrome accents for the unique black grille and front windows, classic torque-thrust 19-inch aluminum wheels and red-painted Brembo™ brakes.

    There’s minimal badging inside and out. All that’s visible on the exterior is the circular faux gas cap Bullitt logo at the rear center. A leather-trimmed interior features unique accent stitching in green on the dashboard, door panels, center console and seats.

    “The new Bullitt will be every bit as cool and charismatic as the original ’68 Mustang,” said Corey Holter, Ford car group marketing manager. “Since its introduction earlier this year, Ford dealers have been fielding calls from customers wanting to know when they can order this unique piece of automotive history.”

    I mean, this Mustang is nice and all, but I’d go Hellcat if your just choosing between these two. But if you have Hellcat money, wait for the new GT500...

    How does that work? If you get, say 15, people coming to you to order the Bullitt, you can order 15 from Ford? Is there a cap?

    Correct. Ford hasn't put any restraint on them, yet. Free for all.

    You need rear seats?

    I say Charger cause a 707hp sedan is ludicrous.

    Crazy to see a GT level mustang at 480hp.
    Good times are afoot for performance
    Gone are the days of the 260 2Vs and 300hp 3Vs.

    Indeed.
    Well my first thought was 48K for the Bullitt because I wasn't sure of how much the loaded GT's are sold for, but for what the car is I'm not surprised by the price. I put 42K because I was mistakenly price referencing a different type of car at the time of me previous post. I would just imagine the Bullitt being slightly above a loaded up GT....which I have no idea the prices of those. All cars nowadays are expensive it seems.
