10k: Speeding Bullitt: 2008 Ford Mustang Bullitt

The fifth generation S197 Mustang was launched in 2005 with well executed retrostyle design and more power from the available V6 and V8 engines.  The design was clean and simple in the V6 models, but got some fancy wings and junk in the V8 GT trim, unless you got the limited Bullitt edition from 2008 or 2009.  The Bullitt package was an appearance and power package available only on GT models in dark highland green (or black) and added some serious Steve McQueen cool to the S197.

For an additional $3,300 on top of the GT premium’s $30k+ price tag, buyers could have this 2008 Bullitt package Mustang.  This will probably be a future collector’s item, but today the S197 Mustang is still dropping in price, but at a 60% discount from original price it brings a lot of modern performance/style/reliability/new-stuff for a reasonable price.

Power comes from a slightly upgraded 4.6 liter modular V8, that makes an additional 15 hp from a cold air intake for a total of 315 horsepower and 325 ft-lbs of torque.  The Bullitt edition has a modifed exhaust that is supposed to sound like the GT390 from the movie, but some of the sound clips from the movie were clearly from a paddle shifted race car of some kind Ford GT40, so who knows if the exhaust note will remind you of cruising around the bay area fighting crime.

The inside of the Bullitt edition includes leather seats, a brushed aluminum dash and a Bullitt decal on the center of the steering wheel.  Other Bullitt additions include a cleaned up grill, stiffer suspension, 18-inch black torque-thrust look-a-like wheels and a high gear ratio in the rear-end.
