Click above for a high resolution photo gallery of the Mustang Bullitt

It would appear that the Mustang Bullitt does not have the same magic as the Shelby GT500. While it's taken over a year for dealerships to lower prices on the GT500 to near MSRP, customers can get their hands on the Bullitt for well under the starting price of $31,075. Ford's April incentives for the Mustang, including the Bullitt, include a rebate of up to $1,500 and an additional $1,000 off in some regions if you purchase the vehicle with Ford Credit. With the potential of $2,500 in rebates, the $3,310 cost of the Bullitt package sounds like a pretty good deal is reduced to just $810. Check out the source below for the rest of Ford's incentive lineup, including money back on the not-yet-available F-150 Chip Foose Edition.

      PJ:"FWIW, those upgrades are all "sold separately" in the Ford Racing parts catalog. Total cost is about $2,700.

      You'd have to *really* want the "Bullitt" logos..."

      $2700 is assuming that the person does all the work installing the parts themselves, also the car wont reflect the 2700 plus labor or the 2700 for that fact, when u go to sell it, where the Bullitt since it is limited production and came from the factory like that...... will likely bring more money than a gt with upgrades.

      I go to school in the Bay area and have noticed them with huge markups here.
      I was in San Diego last weekend and saw two (one black and one green) for 31K at Perry Ford.

      It doesn't look like a V6 in person, it looks phenomenal in person. And now it's a Hell of a deal. Easily my favorite Mustang variant next to Saleen's Parnelli Jones Edition and the Shelby GT500KR.

      I just bought a new Bullitt, to keep my '08 Shelby GT500 company.
      Believe me, the Bullitt is a great driving car and the stealth look actually stands out from the crowd. :)
        • 6 Years Ago
        I really like the minimalist look of the car, and in fact was considering further minimizing it by changing out the badging on the rear and the steering wheel by having the dealership change those out for standard Mustang or GT insignias. (I love the movie, and love the car, but I think the badging with "Bullitt" on it is a little cheesy.) Anyone think this is a smart or stupid move? I would save the original badging to pass on to any subsequent owner if they wanted, but I just don't want it on my car. Thoughts?

      I still have no idea what the attraction is with this car (the Mustang). It is no wonder to me why the sales of the Mustang are down 30%.
        • 6 Years Ago
        lol@ GM-boy Matt. The stang is cheaper to run by far. The design is the stang is awesome compared to the "Holden G8", a past due design. How many 2005+ stangs have they sold now? 1/2 Million?
          • 6 Years Ago
          Yeah...the Mustang design is great...if you like a design that was out of style 30 years ago...
        • 6 Years Ago
        Oh please.

        They're down 30% from selling like hotcakes. Now they're just selling like... waffles. ;)

        I agree it's not enough car for the money, but the look is spot on.

        Other factors are the increased competition, and the fact that this designs been around for, what, 5 years now?

        I'ts holding its own on sales, I'd say. Refesh can't come soon enough though.

        "I still think the Mustang GT is a screaming bargain from an enthusiast standpoint. No other $25K car allows you to get so absorbed in its character (at least, not since the '08 WRX redesign)."

        See, thats just it...I CANNOT STAND the design of the Mustang. I do not see the beauty in a modern car that is designed to look like it is 30 years old. And the interior looks cheaper than the Fisher Price Cozy Coupe.

        SHIPEY:
        "Other factors are the increased competition, and the fact that this designs been around for, what, 5 years now?"

        No...three. The current, 30 year old body style came out in 2005.

        Plus, the Mustang is a toy car. For my money, I would MUCH rather have the more powerful, equally fast, 4-Door G8 GT. Plus, the G8 GT gets better mileage.

        I'm by no means a Detroit fanboy, but between the woofly exhaust note, meaty shifter and spot-on retro interior, this car just pushes all the right feel-good buttons.

      It probably doesn't help that it looks like a V6 Mustang that someone stole the badges off of.

        • 6 Years Ago
        I agree that it's looks like the base model and not a premium model.
        Sure it's special, it's like a high priced ugly call girl.
        • 6 Years Ago
        I think the Bullitt is the best of the bunch appearance-wise. I went to the local dealer the other day and I -immediately- noticed the black Bullitt sitting there. It may look plain, but that actually sets it apart from the rest more so than making it blend in.
      • 6 Years Ago
      the problem is that mechanically, it is identical to a $25k mustang with some ford racing catalog parts installed at the dealership. this has the same problem that the shelby 350 has, its just not different enough from the GT.

      for 6 grand over the base price, it should get a dohc motor making over 350 hp. keep the sleeper look.
      • 6 Years Ago
      I think the Bullitt is a neat car... I mean its pretty justified.... for those of you who haven't seen the Steve McQueen movie from 1968 may find it a bit of a strange car.. but its limited production... NOT the same as as a $25k mustang gt. Has many upgrades....more than I even feel like listing. Not to menton its low production about 5k a year.
      • 6 Years Ago
      The Bullit looks much better than the V6 or the GT. I like the stealth look and those wheels are nice.
        • 6 Years Ago
        Lets see that puts the car @ $25,500 before taxes! Not bad!
      • 6 Years Ago
      True. Figure another $1,000 or so for professional installation. You're still getting out the door for well under the Bullitt's ~$31K base price.

      Is it true that Bullitts fetch more secondhand than comparably-equipped GTs? I was marginally interested in Fox-body Bullitts the last time I bought a used car, and except for examples that had barely been driven, I didn't notice a price premium.
        • 6 Years Ago
        I wholesale cars for a small dealer and they acually do fetch more money... If they are 100 percent (no paint work and nice shape) they will get a good 2-3 grand over a gt. Thats in wholesale money...which in retail money would be a bit greater, however that all depends on the market...
      • 6 Years Ago
      The 08 Bullitt is really, in the end, a stang GTS or LX.

      This the same old formula as the original Bullitt. Problem is the same formula doesn't work today. People they are trying to get are the ones that would buy the old 1LE package of the Camaro or the likes of an Evo IX RS--i.e. strippers but with extra kick in HP/handling.

      I'm by no means a muscle car guy, but this car is simply wickedly cool. I saw one in downtown Toronto last week.

      I'd take this over a new Camero or Challenger any day.

        The name is sooo lame though i would pry those tags off real quick.
