I received my issue of motortrend this month and it has a great article about the upcoming bullitt mustang. I have to say that the 01' Bullitt is much more pleasing to the eye than the new one. I also think that the new mustang is just way to heavy to be a contender. If you look at the Super snake mustang that puts out 600 horspower its barely faster that a new corvette that puts out 436hp. A 01' Bullitt with 600hp would be in the low 11's :)

Yup, everyone has an opinion about the new Bullitt.

I discovered that the S197 Mustang is not a lot heavier that the SN95. I weighed my Bullitt and an 07 manual GT and found that they were within 100 pounds of each other.

But the new design is a bigger car and feels bigger to me during a test drive. At the track on open track day the new Mustangs look a lot bigger than the SN95s. I like the new style but not the new size.

The '08 Bullitt is great BUUUUT, it just does not stand out compared to the way the '01's did next to a standard GT.

The reason may be that the current style is so sharp and looks like the '68's already.

Whatever, it makes for interesting discussion - just like the football BCS bowl games selection process.

It's bigger, slightly heavier, more powerful, handles better, feels more solid, shifts waaaaaaay better and IMO looks more like the 68 than the 01's.......in a nutshell. Having said all that I'm not getting rid of my 01 and wont be getting an 08 just yet but I definitely see one in my garage sometime in the future.

What's the one thing it needs? A blower. That would be my only suggestion if I had've been able to drive one while cruising around Dearborn not too long ago.....

It's a long shot but if I was made an offer I could not refuse, I may drive home an 08 (in the spring) instead of the 01. But I doubt very strongly that I would be made such a deal. I love the original Bullitt.
