    "Early rendering of our Steve McQueen edition Bullitt Mustang. 500 hp or supercharged 800 hp. Custom designed wheels with HRE. Over 53 new parts. Only 300 per model year. Stay tuned..."


    I've asked if these are based on the Bullitt special edition - EDIT: Yes, they are :)

    Nice wheels.
    500 hp out of the same engine? Wonder how they got another 20 hp.

    That's a gorgeous car. I love the way the quarter windows are set up, and how the chrome accents complement the wheels. To me chrome accents really look good on a dark green car - that's one of the few times I'd really like chrome.

    What's the wheel setup on these cars?

    The wheels are cool, but I'm curious to hear what the other new parts are. Otherwise it looks like just quarter window louvers and a unique decklid. With the Bullitt edition already available, I don't see the appeal, and I'm sure it won't be cheap.

    Steeda, and a few others, have been heavily involved in this:

    From their FB page:

    Exciting news!!

    We are pleased to formally announce the launch of the official Steve McQueen Edition Bullitt Mustang in a limited production of only 300/year. Using the stunning new Ford Bullitt Mustang as a starting point, this ultra-high performance edition has been purposely re-engineered to deliver supreme performance, improved driving dynamics, and offer an increased exclusiveness for this iconic Mustang. This is the result of many hours of behind the scenes work by our team consisting of Steeda, McQueen Racing, Galpin Auto Sports, HRE Wheels, and Nitto Tires, alongside Chad McQueen.

    The dedicated engineering and performance teams have spent considerable development time to create the most quintessential McQueen Mustang possible – The Steve McQueen Edition. The design spec was classic McQueen: take an already excellent car and enhance power throughout the RPM band, while improving the handling capabilities suitable for both track and on-road, and give the design an even more classic restrained but undeniably cool stance.

    More details to follow throughout the day. Stay tuned and tell all your friends

    I already hear (300) people canceling their “Ford” Bullitt orders and going for this, due to the McQueen authencity and nice upgrades.

    The articles all say “300 per year” - but none of them say for how many years?

    I think the whole McQueen family is awesome and I wish them all the best, but I struggle to see them selling 300 of these a year. $47,500 for a base Bullitt + $21,000 for this package puts you at $68,500. :eyebulge:

    I guess Shelby American is still in business and I struggle to see the value there too so there must be a market, I just don't understand it. :shrug:

    Well, they're selling them in the UK and since we're also a RHD market, I guess they'll be available here in Australia (the worlds second biggest Mustang market).

    I agree, its certainly not cheap. But this may well be the last opportunity to buy a Bullitt Mustang and having the additional McQueen cachet will encourage those with deep pockets.

    It'd be nice if even just a small amount of profit went to the Boys Republic charity though (I didn't see reference to this, although it wouldn't surprise me if this happens anyway).

    I hope they don't cancel their orders......I suspect you'll need one for Steeda to build up from (I don't see Steeda providing the car "turn key"). Perhaps [MENTION=7748]tj@steeda[/MENTION] can confirm? :)

    (certainly our UK Steeda rep indicated you'd need to procure your own Bullitt first).

    "Buying a brand image", which is what any of us are doing anyway to some degree. If I had money to throw around, I actually would have one of these as a collector. However, I don't have it to throw around, so I am good with the "plain old" Ford one :)
