2008 Ford Mustang Bullitt

For 2008, Ford has decided to reanimate the cinematic Mustang. Behold the Mustang Bullitt, a slightly tweaked, de-badged Mustang GT, painted Dark Highland Green and dipped with shameless McQueen nostalgia. -- Dan Neil (Michael Robinson Chavez/ Los Angeles Times)
It’s just another, not very imaginative riff on the Ford Mustang GT, aimed at goobers who’ve got it so bad for Steve [McQueen] they can’t help themselves. -- Dan Neil (Michael Robinson Chavez, Los Angeles Times)
This Bullitt -- with a 4.6-liter, 315-hp V8 and a five-speed shifter between the seats -- is way better than the axle-winding lunatic I drove a few months ago, the 500-hp Shelby GT500. -- Dan Neil (Michael Robinson Chavez, Los Angeles Times)
The clutch and shift work flawlessly together, the engine is smooth and tractable. And it’s got an amazing sound. -- Dan Neil (Michael Robinson Chavez/ Los Angeles Times)
Under the hood, a cold-air intake and slightly raised redline (to 6,500 rpm) add up to an extra 15 horsepower over the stock GT (and 325 pound-feet of torque at 4,250 rpm). -- Dan Neil (Michael Robinson Chavez/ Los Angeles Times)
