    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.

    Be more interesting how it'd fair with insurance, for that aspect it'd need to be a separate car, or a power packed mustang 18, because it'll produce a fair sump more horses... THE PLOT THICKENS :ninja:

    But only a bit ;)
    I do like those as it happens, but they're not big enough.

    I would be tempted with a Bullitt as well. Let's face it we are not going to ever get an official Shelby GT anything in RHD, only way is pay someone like Bill Shepherd his considerable mark up to get one, or convert to a Super Snake or go though considerable aggro importing yourself.
    The Bullitt car may be as 'Limited Edition' as official UK Mustangs get, without having your bank account violated in unspeakable ways.

    I've never watched Bullitt. It's on Amazon Prime if you want to see it.

    I know it's a signature piece but not really a fan of the wheel design. Apart from that, as we're not getting the GT350 let's see how much power it develops in the UK market.

    Watched the film last night. Good car chase with great sound. I liked Bullitt's bullitt green pyjamas.

    One observation, the s550 tribute should have two exhausts sticking out 5 inches not four tucked away as per the new car.

    Including louvers, side scoopss etc? :thumbsup:.

    It's more a ford performance dumping everything optional onto it (quad tips, pp3 etc) and badging it bullet.

    My only issue with the design is the actual "Bullitt" branding, bit too novelty for me. But apart from that, I think it's superb.

    I hope it comes here.....but would Ford really go through the hoops of European certification for the revised engine?

    Of course, they could offer it as just an appearance package without the extra 15hp, but the bump, small as it may be, is a key differentiator for me.

    :)

    C'mon Ford, forget the certification, it's not rocket science...just throw a standard Coyote in there, add the Bullitt stuff & send it over! They'll never know :ninja:

    As they have 350 manifold, does the bullit also bump the rev limiter up? Be nice if they were revving to 8000rpm from factory with full warranty which believe me when you have the 350 manifold the car screams to 8000rpm. :)
