Car Tech Video: 2007 LA Auto Show: 2008 Ford Mustang Bullitt

1:41 /

The iconic car movie "Bullitt" approaches its 40th anniversary, and Ford has a special Mustang just for the occasion. Get a first look from the floor at the 2007 LA Auto Show.

[ music ] ^M00:00:05 [ background music ] >> This one is not a tech story. This is more of a love story. Because if you've got red blood in your veins, you better love the movie Bullet, dammit. Forty years now, 1968 to 2008, coming up on the fortieth anniversary of the iconic movie, and here's Ford's ode to it. A new commemorative Bullet Mustang. Subtle cues make it correct, dark highland green is the color, you can also get it in black which I don't quite get, but that's all right. The wheels are very much a classic look on the throwback with a charcoal finish. Other things you might spot are a completely clean grill without a pony emblem on there, that's a good spotter's tip, slightly lower rear end than other Mustangs, GTs for example. Notice the exhaust tips are also bullet. Inside you're gonna find an engine turned finish, on the face of the dash, that's also a throwback to some of the early Mustang trimmed packages, a little more upgraded steering wheel, DVD nav is available, in case you lose your way from Enrico's Cafe to the hotel on the Embarcadero. You with me? Under the hood is not a huge story, it's been breathed on a little bit, three hundred and fifteen horsepower, three twenty five foot pounds, five speed manual only with a really cool chunky aluminum knob that also has the right look and feel with the font on the gear map. You're gonna find this car goes out at about thirty one thousand dollars MSRP, you're gonna pay more than that I'm pretty sure. They're gonna make fewer than eight thousand for US and Canada, and this is a real dealer favorite for loading up the markup, but maybe you'll get lucky. So that's the new fortieth edition Bullet Mustang. By the way, the new fortieth edition DVD of the movie I hear is coming, so I'll at least get that. ^M00:01:34 [ music ]
