nice

wished it had more motor, but sounds reasonable

I jsut hope there are plenty of visual ques like the 01 Bullitts. At the moment, only the gas lid and grill are noted with no other body mods.

i wish it had a unique hood, grill delete(like the 03 mach 1) and new free flowing heads. hopefully the new bullitt will only be 32k or less.

yep, i want to know more about suspension and torque.
also, ford could EASILY have made it AT LEAST an even 325 HP if they had wanted to do the "right thing"

It's about what I suspected would be done as a special package. And the 312 h.p. is probably what the Shelby GT has, but was advertised as 325 h.p. I kind of suspected that 325 was too good to be true for a simple bolt on dealer modification. Seems to me that most folks that are into the Bullitt are either interested in just a commemorative edition out of the box (like I am), or someone that it interested in personnalizing it to what they think it should be. In the latter scenario whatever the factory puts out it's going to be changed anyway, so why cross that street? It sounds good, and I'm sure there will be after market parts available to snaz-up the exterior trim if what you get is too subtle...;-)

BTW, I wouldn't be averse to black Bullitt wheels if it's truely Highland Green. Black wheels with black paint wouldn't be bad either. :)

Does this mean my little True Blue will be even more rare, since they are only making Green and Black?

Is there any news about the engine intake? Will the engine look like a stock GT/Shelby GT with a plastic intake manifold?

Except for the brake calipers, it seems that the new Bullitt will definitely look like the 05 Motor Trend car that we saw in SF last year.

Will the car be Highland green, not Dark Highland green?

Not enough added content to sell my '01 Bullitt for it. What is with Ford and their "drippy faucet" horsepower allocations?!!! Any other special edition has to have less than the gold plated,holy watered, Shelby blessed, Shelby GT??!!
