If there's one car today that just exudes "cool," it's the Bullitt. Even without the link to Steve McQueen and the 1968 movie, this Mustang impresses us, a Dark Highland Green GT stripped of almost all badges and looking ready to rumble on 5-spoke 18-in. alloy wheels that are straight out of the 1960s. And fortunately, the dynamics of the car are not. This Mustang works remarkably well, thanks to firmer springs, struts and shocks, a strut tower brace, high-performance front brake pads and grippy 235/50ZR-18 BFGoodrich KDWS tires. And under the hood, the aluminum-block 4.6-liter V-8 benefits from a Ford Racing cold air intake, a snappier throttle and a redline raised 250 rpm to 6500. This — together with a new H-pipe and mufflers tuned to help the car sound like the original movie Mustang — translates to a stout 315 bhp at 6000 rpm and 325 lb.-ft. of torque, now sent to a 3.73:1 rear end instead of the stock GT's 3.31:1 unit. Top speed is 151 mph. Only 7700 Bullitts will be built, and as we suspected the car is quicker than the last GT we tested (January 2007), by two-tenths to both 60 mph and the quarter mile. And it's 0.5 mph faster in our slalom, perhaps because of those BFG tires. More important than numbers, however, the Bullitt is an excellent daily driver, with abundant torque on tap, a robust cue-ball shifter, an easy to modulate clutch and a firm but not unpleasant ride. We're sure McQueen would approve.
