    Take a drive on the Autobahn all out with the 2019 Bullitt. Exhilarating to say the least. I cannot wait to order my 2020MY.

    The driver wasn't flooring the accelerator on the first run to reach top speed. Pretty impressive on the Bullitt's performance and getting up to speed. I'm actually a fan of the tall gears and the H.P. at higher revs. You can really see the torque kick in at higher revs. Too bad Ford has put an electronic limiter. I was a little disappointed. I believe with different gearing and no limiter the car could reach 186 MPH to 188 MPH.

    Acceleration:
    15 MPH to 162 MPH (roll): 31:82 seconds (not killing it)
    60 MPH to 125 MPH (3rd): 10:15 seconds

    Gear shifts:
    2nd to 3rd -- 82.02 MPH @ 7190
    3rd to 4th -- 122.41 MPH @ 7460

    Top Speed Gear:
    4th -- 161.55 MPH @ 6780
    5th -- 161.55 MPH @ 5520
    6th -- the driver did not attempt

    I saw this. Good acceleration and all but I'm really not a fan of the tall gearing. Unless you live on the Autobahn you are ruled by 70mph speed limits and driving at max of 90mph for a couple of seconds in public areas, and for me with the curvy roads in the UK I don't want it to feel like I'm driving an automatic when hustling the car because I would never need to shift out of 2nd gear. The gearing is way too long for someone like me who wants to enjoy hustling the car around bends while enjoying the scenery, and won't really be using the car for drag racing or highway pulls like so many Americans do. I think a 4.09 or 4.30 ratio is ideal as the fuel economy hit shouldn't be too material to care about for those of us in Europe that spend over $6/gallon to fill up.

    I agree with you. We each have our own tastes. The car has good acceleration and for the cost you cant beat it. Well if you do have the money spend the couple hundred thousand for this: https://youtu.be/ecc4c1DvyEA (1:03)
    0 kmh to 260 kmh is just under 11 seconds (10.54)


    I like your chart. But my gear ratio is a bit different. Mine is:


    Bullitt Ration:
    1st gear ratio: 3.66
    2nd gear ratio: 2.43
    3rd gear ratio: 1.69
    4th gear ratio: 1.31
    5th gear ratio: 1.00
    6th gear ration: 0.65

    Final drive ratio: 3.73
    RPM: 7500
    Tire Diameter inches: 28 (I rounded up)

    Gear Speed:
    1st (mph): 46
    2nd (mph): 69
    3rd (mph): 99
    4th (mph): 128
    5th (mph): 167
    6th (mph): 258

    No. Those are the ratios for pre-2018 cars. The Bullitt has the same gear ratios as the 2019 GT with the MT-82. 4th is 1:1. 5th and 6th are overdrives. Rear end in the US is 3.73, as opposed to 3.55 in the EU.
    1 : 3.24
    2 : 2.1
    3 : 1.42
    4 : 1.00
    5 : 0.81
    6 : 0.62

    IMO driving top speed on the autobahn is not always fun. The speed differences between the cars are to high and lots of people looking in the review mirror don,t get how fast you are. I found myself in some dangerous situations when driving more than 130mph. People just change the lanes and you find yourself testing out the brakes. I once had to slow down from 155 to 60mph and just slightly made it. Exellent brakes and lots of adrenaline.
    The long gears are great for cruising. 100 to 110mph in 6.gear is real fun.
    But for fast acceleration the gears are to long. The EU modells not only have the 3.55 rear axle, they also lack power (454 hp) and tourque (390ft-lb) because of gasoline partical filter. So I had a mild tune to reach at least stock US numbers. The car has now 484hp and 420ft-lb of tourque. You can feel that, more low end tourque. Top speed is now 280km/h (175mph). Not tried out by now.

    I agree with dagobert. I've spent a lot of time on the unrestricted speed sections of the autobahn between Frankfurt and Munich; hundreds of trips in my personal or pool BMW's, and my own 911's. It requires hyper attention, and speed above about 130 mph isn't that much fun in traffic, even when some are going 120-130. For those who haven't driven there, most autobahn sections are only 2 lanes each direction. The right lane can be tractors and Fiat Pandas, and the left lane is for passing the trucks, farm tractors and grandma.
    It's a great experience, everyone should try it while the autobhan still has unrestricted speed sections, but it isn't Disneyland.

    When getting your german dl, don't you have to learn all the warning signals and whatnot? I remember my pops complaining about US drivers not knowing how to warn people behind them of what is up ahead (like they did in germany). Nowadays, I guess waze takes the brunt of warnings and whatnot on the US side.

    Yes. Thank you. I was incorrect or in this case the write-up was incorrect. I have learned to go to the source for correct info... Ford Company.
