For all our joking about the seemingly endless parade of special edition, aftermarket, or niche-built Ford Mustangs, there is one that we're all waiting for: the Bullitt. We daydream about donning a turtleneck, popping in the jazzy Lalo Schifrin score and cruising around, looking for bad guys in black Chargers. And while there hasn't been a single photo leaked yet, the car's specs have finally made their way onto the web over at Mustang Evolution.

Like the last Bullitt-edition 'Stang, power output is bumped only slightly -- in this case, it's going to come in at 312 horses, thanks to the Ford Racing Power Pack. Other Bullitt mods include a retuned suspension, strut tower brace, x-pipe, new exhaust tips, V6-style grille (we hope that Ford deletes the pony badge, too), red brake calipers, 3:73 rear, 18" "Bullitt" wheels (our money's on black ones), and, of course, Highland Green paint. The car's also going to be available in black for the non-purists out there.

Pricing is still a mystery, but we now know that the program will go on for seven months and produce 7,000 cars for the US, and 700 for our Canuck friends. The full "Bullitted" list of known leaked info can be read here.

      I too am dissappointed with the new Bullitt. I've been waiting for some news on this car for some time now, and it doesn't fit the hype that I was hoping for. I thought Ford was to make it real special, and they didn't. What a let down! I'll be spending my money elsewhere now.

      I guess Ford changed their minds about reducing the number of special versions of the Mustang?

      How about they strip 500 lbs from this heifer without making it a stripped racer. Why does it have to be so damn heavy?

      Some people are expecting the Mustang to be Porsche light @ $25K. That is imposible, maybe if Ford could charge Prosche prices that car would be a possibility but in the Mustang price range, imposible. That would be a car for Jaguar for the way, not Ford.

      Also I think Ford should launch a Mercury Cougar variant. This might give the Mercury brand a bit of a sporty and youthful image.

      Could someone please fill me in on why there is such a hype for the Bullit?

      It looks like it only has a few minor tweaks. I don't get it.

      HardwareGuy,

      Bullitt was approved and a done deal long before that announcement was made.

      If my film history serves me (may be wrong), the original Bullit Mustang never made more power than the orignal Chargers from the film. So, this version would be somewhat true to the original source material.

      All the items cost and contribute less to the driving experience that the IRS Ford developed for the mechanically similar Thunderbird. Fugedaboudit.

      I really don't know what is Autoblog's problem with Mustang's special editions, seriously. The Mustang is still one of the brightest spots in Ford's lineup today, why do you find strange that Ford is milking it to no end? What makes your position even harder to understand is the fact that these SE Mustangs seem to be working just fine. Try to buy a California Special or a Shelby GT-500 and you will know what I'm talking about.

      It was fine as a funny introduction to a Mustang related entry the first couple of times but why try to make the point every single time you are going to write about a Mustang. I understand that it must be a real pain trying to start writing a new entry but get yourselves a new pair of crutches.
