You may remember last summer when we brought you news from Stangs Unleashed about 2008.5 Mustang Bullitt rumors. Well Stangs Unleashed says Ford has a date set for the Bullitt's unveiling (though won't tell us when). The site also divulges more detailed information about the car as well as a spy photo of the supposed Bullitt's 4.6L, DOHC 400HP engine. According to Stangs Unleashed's sources, the aluminum blocked motor will feature Ford GT-type cylinder heads and valve covers, and special exhaust and intake manifolds.

The site goes on to provide further details of the car that seem to indicate the Bullitt will be set up more for road racing than drag racing, which should make Steve McQueen happy. One more rumor Stangs Unleashed throws out concerns Carroll Shelby. Could Ford be planning to ship semi-finished Bullitts to Shelby for further road-racing mods? Stangs Unleashed stops short of saying definitely, but hints heavily at the possibility. The site is also careful to point out any of these details could change before an actual product (Bullitt or otherwise) is released.

      I just got the email from my local ford dealer and they are taken names for the bullitt now. I'm number five on the list not bad considering I started in on them when the news came out last sep. they have no info but I will post it as soon as I get some here

      hey sambo, the supercharger and such weighing 150+ pounds doesn't help either.

      2 different ballgames though. You won't see 500rwhp and a flat 450+ tq curve with a bullit mustang with just a CAI and tune.

      I'll be happy to see them when they hit either way.

      Er, eh... I had a black Bullitt. I paid sticker. That was 'mildly retarded'.

      Ford's idea was broaden Bullitt sales by offering blue and black. Some idea for a limited edition car.

      I'd preferred DHG, but guys were buying 2 and 3 DHG Bullitts at a time for storage. The only Bullitts on lot were black.

      That was baddest car I'd ever owned- 10.5" wheels on the back, a tall chrome Hurst stick and a white ball knob.

      When the '01 was released, Ford said it wouldn't make any more Bullitts- Ford had to pay Warner Bros for the use of the name.

      I'm glad to see they're going back and building Bullitts. I wonder what those guys with the warehouse full of DHG Bullitts think...

      this is all bulls***. the motor in that pic is not a 400 hp anything. its a relic from an engine program that got killed over a year ago. look at the pic, that engine has been laying around for a while.

      i dont know if the 400 hp spec ed mustang is true or not but good sources have contradictory information.

      This 400hp should be put in all Mustang GT's after the bullitt run is done. 400 normally aspirated hp, YUMMMMM. Now if they could get the car down to 3100lb range I'd be All over it.

      Hmmm
      I cant imagine for the life of me.. owning a Bullitt. The power that thing has.. and the looks.. sweet jesus.

      As for the guys with a warehouse.. theres a little thing called BARETT JACKSON. Im sure, theyd get their money back.. and then some.

      But Ford has to do a Bullitt Mustang.. its jsut the way its done. But what I dont think ford should do.. is continue this plethoria of Mustang fever.

      Almost every car that went across the auction block.. was a Mustang. There were a good coupla 1000 auctioned off. I love the mustang as well as the next guy.. but damn. Its all becoming.. bland.

      Yeah, the story is total bullshit. It's already been refuted by people in the know.
