Nice find, hopefully they finally reveal it at NAIAS. Too bad the chance that it's coming to the europe is pretty low
Hard to tell, that photo looks like a guy sitting forward in a rhd driving seat and girlfriend in the passenger seat lol

They had amazing weather in Chicago for December. The lighting is nothing special, its what we have here. It really does not do any color justice.

Either the brake rotors are larger but the calipers aren't painted or those are 18" wheels. The 14" brakes don't fill in that much area behind a 19" wheel.

The tires appear to me to have thinner sidewalls than what one might see on 18" wheels.

based on past versions of the torq thrust wheels, does the wheel design even allow clearance over brembo brakes? it can't be a bullitt without those wheels so the brakes have to go...

Or its a preproduction model as is usually the case when they are doing these kinds of shoots. I can't imagine it not having some sort of upgraded brakes....

I agree, and they are definitely larger than 14" brake rotors. I am going to say they will be PP brakes but just not painted the same. Can't speak for the S197 Bullitt but the SN95 Bullitt had essentially the same brakes as the Cobra and Mach 1, but the calipers had their own unique paint job (red /w running pony).

I know this because I have those brakes on my SN95.

S197 Bullitts didn't have anything special as far as brakes outside of slightly different pads, IIRC.

As an owner of both previous Bullitts, I hope this one is even more so of a performance upgrade with more rubber on the road like a PP. I doubt I'll bite on this one though, since I've got my '15 set up to my liking. Unless the new Bullitt is really something special....

Not with a huge lip like that but the new wheels will most likely be 19" versions of the ones that were used on the 08/09 Bullitts. Less lip = more clearance.

Shelby from 16-18, Bullitt in 18, possible Mach1 in 19, GT getting a PP2 starting in 18.. DAMN good time to be a Mustang lover.

I don't agree. Those appear to be the same calipers as mine (base GT).

Maybe they're GT350 brakes? Brembo logo on those would be faint enough to not show up in that shot, and the caliper color is right. Sounds like it would fit with what they've done for Bullitts in the past. Also, if you squint at the spy shot, it looks like the rotors are actually drilled too.
