While perusing the Ford media website today, we were greeted with the image you see above and Ford's first official acknowledgment that the much anticipated Mustang Bullitt will debut at the L.A. Auto Show in mid-November. Of course, we already know a lot about the Mustang Bullitt thanks to specs that were leaked earlier this month. We also know in general how the car will look, including its famous Highland Green paint and completely blank grille. Ford says in its little blurb (read it after the jump) that the car has the "perfect balance of power, performance and a look of quiet intensity."

Despite all the iterations of the Mustang that we've been forced to stomach from Ford and numerous other companies, this is the one we've been waiting for. It's good to know we won't have to wait much longer. After debuting in a couple of weeks, the Mustang Bullitt will officially go on sale early next year, according to Ford.

The Ford Mustang Bullitt™ is back for 2008, making its first public showing at the Los Angeles International Auto Show on Nov. 13. Blending the best Mustang ever with the latest Ford Racing technology, this modern classic lives up to the magic of the movie "Bullitt" by delivering a new-generation Mustang Bullitt with the perfect balance of power, performance and a look of quiet intensity. Bullitt screams into dealerships early next year.

      Where is the Boss 302 or Mach 1? Those are the cars that we really want to see. Don't get me wrong, i'm excited about the Bullitt, but it's not really very different from the regular Mustang. If anything, Ford should debut a mustang concept in detroit previewing the next gen to compete w/ the Camaro.

      >>> *Yaaaaaaaaaawn!* Somebody wake me when it's over.

      The only thing good about this car is that it does away with all of those fake hood scoops, side scoops, and whatever else fake scoops that the Mustang GT has. I mean, really, what is the point of a scoop with a black plastic cover on it?
        • 7 Years Ago
        The fake hood and brake scoops are optional on the current S197 Mustang. The plastic panels blocking off the grilles are annoying however.

      awesome, i love the v6 mustang look - especially in green

      Too bad it couldn't be debuted in the streets of San Francisco chasing down a Charger.

      We get our first Bullitt in early December. Already have several people waiting, so despite the flood of special editions, people still care about the factory models. (I'm at a northwest suburbs of Chicago dealership)

      Can't wait to see this along with the Fusion and MkS

      *yawn*

      When are the 7-Eleven and Oscar Mayer editions being unvieled?

      Too many specials, now they are un-special.
      • 7 Years Ago
      oh of course the Mustang will outsell them all (if it changes in time) there are hundreds of 16 year old blond rich girls and balding 40 year olds who need to toughen up their image! =D

        Ahem. I'm 37 and have plenty of hair...

      When there is money to be made you go for it.
      I'm pretty sure when the Challenger and Camaro come out, we'll see just as many different versions.
      We just have to wait until '09 or later for those ;)
        • 7 Years Ago
        Instead of the Mustang out selling the Camaro and Firebird combined, I wonder if it will out sell the Challenger and Camaro combined?
      • 7 Years Ago
      Isn't it Porsche that has about 30 different versions of the 911? Not to mentions 10s of thousands more to get those editions. In reality Fords mustang lineup is very limited. You can get a V6, GT, GT/CS and GT500.
        • 7 Years Ago
        What are you talking about? Ford makes 10,000+ CS and 10,000 GT500 per year. LOL The 997 GT2 for exmaple they will make 1000 and no more, and very few of the GT3 RS. Its only the small 3rd party companies that are doing a special run of

      As an 07 Mustang GT (Black) owner the only thing I like different about the Bullitt is the color. Everything else, who cares? Seems like Ford will charge a high premium ala Shelby GT for not much performance or looks gain.
