While everyone waits patiently (or for some folks, impatiently) for Ford to release the new Bullitt Mustang, Blue Flame, a Japanese firm that imports and distributes Mustangs over yonder, has taken the initiative to offer its very own Bullitt package. And it looks really good. Available for both V6 and V8 Mustangs, the obvious cosmetic changes (optional blacked-out grille, side window louvers, side scoops, spoiler delete, Bullitt badging, Highland Green paint, etc.) are paired with additional features like Eibach springs, Saleen pedals, and an upgraded Pioneer stereo. Those looking for more can opt for performance and handling upgrades from Ford Racing and Saleen at added expense. Based on the pictures on Blue Flame's site, it's a very nice conversion.

If that's not enough, the company has a slick BOSS package on offer as well. Follow the jump for that one.

Thanks to Scott for the tip!

Like its Bullitt, Blue Flame's BOSS package is very easy on the eyes, but unlike the movie-inspired car, the BOSS kit is only available for V8 Mustangs. The main visual updates are a black chin spoiler, black rear spoiler, black rear window louvers (of course), wide hood stripe, hood scoop, quarter-window covers, a side stripe package, and retro-look wheels. Like the Bullitt, power can be at stock level (300 hp), or Blue Flame can fit all manner of performance upgrades from the Saleen and Ford Racing catalogs. We also have to say that the optional painted mirrors with integrated indicators look good on both cars.

In Japan, these cars -- Bullitt and BOSS alike -- must draw attention everywhere they go.

      They both look great. I'd love to drive them in a place where you don't see them all the time, too.

      That's a HOT car, in both pics. I'd take the black one though, looks so much meaner. Are any of these parts available for anyone with a stock Mustang?
      • 7 Years Ago
      the bullitt does look sweet though.

      I'll take a Bullitt, if I can have a lip spoiler on the deck. I'll add my own louvers to the rear window. It may not be a Bullitt trait, but, I love the look.

      Sadly, the interior still sucks and exudes a quality you can find in any fisher-price toy.

      Can I pose a question to the ones in the know out there....

      Does Japan have a law which requires cars to have side mirror turn signals?

      Like the Japanese CR-V has mirror signals, while US spec doesnt have it. It's the same for a few more cars too. I see the same thing here in this post (for the both packages). What's the dilly?

        I used to live in Japan and go back regularly to see my In Laws...

        No, Japan doesn't require turn signals in the mirrors. There are several cars sold over there that don't have them...

        One problem for the Mustang is parking. The car is simply very wide for most parking spaces. Also, the mirrors don't fold. In Japan, most car mirrors not only fold but most have power folding mirrors.

        Last March I actually saw TWO Mustang GTs in Akihabara.

      Yes and they sell 5 of these a year in Japan.

      Wow, those mirrors look SO much better than the current Mustang's truck mirrors.
