I would argue this point, for any Bullitt edition mustang ever created.

This is, a special edition mustang, and not an icon. If they remake bullitt with a steve mander (rather than a steve McQueen) with a 2018 S550 Bullitt, then sure, it's iconic for that. .

Neither of this is to say that the name is not iconic, and the car isn't special, but, for it's potential (speculative etc) price, is it worth it, as an icon, no. As a collectors item, and cool homeage, that's down to each individual (TT is currently selling his kidney, kids, wife, (and their non vital organs) and S197 for this lol)
Haha really @Twin Turbo ??? I thought he may be interested. I do get your point...I guess the correct phrase would be that these Bullitts will be a tribute to an icon.

P.s. you can't be in the Bullitt reboot movie, no where near cool enough

My turn to be pedantic.

"An Icon is a person or thing regarded as a representative symbol or as worthy of veneration."

Everyone here appears to be agreeing that this car, and the previous "tribute" cars, were built to be representative symbols of the original car, which makes them, by definition, icons in their own right.

^ this.


The icon is the original, the ones after are a tribute, they are not iconic cars, the brand name (or movie in this case) is what is iconic. You show a regular person the 68 bullett movie car, they'll probably know the movie, you show someone the MY18 they'll say "It's a ferrari, whys it green"

Spoke with my local Ford Store yesterday to register my interest should there be a UK Bullitt version.
They were not very positive we would get any but we shall see.

I wouldnít trust or listen to what they are saying to be honest. Surprised they have even heard about the US release of it. Most dealers arenít fanatics, they are there because itís a job

I have spoken to quite a few people interested in Bullits, so if you are seriously interested let me know, and I can mention it to some of the people I speak to at Ford etc

If there are quite a few genuine buyers interested, who knows.....

My middle Mustang was a 2008 Bullit, so I can say from experience that once the car is out properly in the States all the special Bullitt bits will be available as normal spares. Wheels, faux gas cap, sill plates, airbag, front grilles et all.

Looks like they use the ecoboost front wings on the line as these don't have the fixing holes for the 5.0 badge on the GT.

The paint code will also be available.

The problem with the automatic may be incompatibility/lack of a suitable tune for use with the 350 inlet manifold. I am sure someone on here knows the technical answer to this one?

Heard through the grapevine (US section) that this WILL be coming to the UK. Apparently Ford said so on twitter. Will see if I can find the tweet

Well, they posted the bullitt image, and some marketing spiel, they've done that with numerous 350's, doesn't mean it'll come.

That said, I don't see any reason it not to, it's more an optioned up MY18 than it is a totally separate car like the 350.

The comment on the US section suggested a specific answer to the question of a RHD Bullitt - posted by a UK user.

Be more surprised if it didn't come over - as you say, it's a standard GT with special edition trim. Only question would be around the increased engine power & how that sits with the powers that be in the EU.
