Thumbs up 2018 Bullitt Mustang (and Features) Confirmed in Window Sticker

An anonymous source has sent us confirmation that the 2018 Bullitt Mustang is real and likely coming soon! As you'll remember, the S550 Bullitt was officially unofficially teased in a video featuring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. (Since it's the first solid evidence of the S550 Bullitt, we're breaking this off from the larger thread).

We now have much more than a teaser...

Name:  2018-Bullitt Mustang Window Sticker.jpg
Views: 13996
Size:  374.8 KB

This is a Ford test sticker confirming the "2018 Bullitt GT" along with a few key details. It should be noted that these test stickers have VIN numbers pulled from an auto generator (similar to some early window stickers for the 2018 F-150 which had Ford Fusion VIN numbers). For the curious, this particular window sticker has a VIN that comes back as a 2009 Bullitt.

The 2018 Bullitt will be offered in "Highland Green Metallic" which is sure to be a close match to the familiar "Dark Highland Green" used on Bullitt Mustangs of old. It will come with the 5.0L Coyote and have at least the option of pairing it with the new 10-speed automatic transmission. On the exterior it's got heritage features to make it a proper Bullitt remake, namely, rear window louvers and rear faux gas cap which should carry the crosshairs design gleaned from the previously mentioned video.

As this is a test sticker, many of the finer details regarding the exact packaging and content remains incomplete (or in some cases inaccurate). Also, the listed sticker price should be ignored as the base price and options prices are missing.

We’re less than two weeks away from the anniversary of Steve McQueen’s Bullitt movie release date of October 17th so the stars may be aligning for Ford to make it official by teasing the 2018 Bullitt to the public. We’ve got our ears (and photographers) on the ground and will update everyone if we capture anything exciting to share… Stay tuned!

**BTW, the final window sticker will have a custom background specific to the Bullitt, similar to the ones seen on the GT350, Raptor, RS, etc.

No need to install those rear window louvres, @Bullitt

Will be interesting if there will be an EU Bullit

Yeah, but for the guys who gave us Yanks rock-and-roll, you're our favorite. I hope the Mustang returns the favor somewhat!

All it's going to be is a full loaded GT with a unique color, stripe, and wheel package. And a crap ton of "Bullit" decals pasted all over the interior and exterior. I don't see why it shouldn't make it to the UK.

Good point, I based my comment on the GT350 not coming over, but as you say it would be far easier for Ford to do this.

Oh gosh, I can see myself getting caught up in all the excitement and ordering one

Could be 2020 by the time Ford UK cotton on though...

It could have a 390 V8 too. 6.4L to be exact. And 485-500 hp/440 lb-ft of tq. Btw, the term: "ft-lbs" does not apply to mechanical engines.

nice, but 56k? come on. Its at least 10k overpriced and a good 15k out of my budget. I wonder if they will offer it in base with a manual? Seems like the bullet should be manual only.

Just an idea, but I really hope that Ford uses the digital cluster for the Bullitt and gives the digital gauges it a really cool retro theme.
