A couple of weeks ago I wrote about Bullitt wheels for your Mustang. I admitted then, and I’ll say it again… For my money there is simply nothing cooler than Steve McQueen or the Ford Mustang! Nothing!

It would appear that I am not the only person who feels this way… Apparently the folks over at Ford feel the same as evidenced by the release of the new 2008 Mustang Bullitt

2008 Mustang Bullitt

Ford has created the perfect sleeper by eliminating the badging, the spoiler, and doing away with the awkward looking fog lights by adding a unique black mesh grille with metallic surround. Add to this a Dark Highland Green paint job and black leather interior with engine turn aluminum trim and a rumbling exhaust tone that matches the movie car, topped off with a 4.6-liter V-8, with cold-air induction technology, and a modified chassis and suspension and what you get is the 2008 Mustang Bullitt! A Mustang which remains true to its heritage.

If… Like me, you are obsessed with the new Bullitt Mustang but already own a GT you can always add a little Bullitt style to your current Mustang GT! Check out these deals…

Steve McQueen in BullittSteve McQueen and the Mustang… They will forever be married in the minds of the American public. Both represent the epitome of cool. If you own, or have ever owned a Mustang for that matter, chances are you have pulled up to many a stoplight imagining yourself as San Francisco police Lt. Frank Bullitt as played by Steve Mcqueen, noticing the black 1968 Dodge Charger R/T 440 of your nemesis pull up beside you.

As you wait at the light the Charger’s driver fastens his seat belt with sober deliberateness. The light changes to green, the driver stands on the Dodge’s accelerator, you stand on yours and two celebrated American muscle cars show what they’re made of. Seven glorious minutes of the greatest chase ever captured on film is on.

That chase scene did wonders for the Mustang, catapulting it into the stuff of legend in the minds and more importantly the hearts of Americans. Ford offered a limited edition anniversary “Bullitt” Mustang for model-year 2001, and is promising a new edition for 2008. The new Bullitt is supposed to be the best interpretation so far of the iconic 1968 390 GT driven by Steve McQueen in “Bullitt”, the movie that still boasts the best real-world chase sequence ever.

If you own a Mustang you have to have Bullitt style wheels. The problem is they aren’t exactly cheap. However you can purchase OEM Ford™ 17″ Bullitt Style Wheels and Tires for your Mustang at about half the price of purchasing them from a Ford dealership by buying dealer takeoffs. As we talked about before, most dealerships have a surplus of stock factory parts which technically can’t be sold as new because they are take offs, even though the majority of dealer take off parts have fewer than five miles of operation.
