EXCLUSIVE! First Drag Test: 2008 Bullitt
MM&FF Road Test and Drag Strip Abuse coming in the February 2008 issue, on Newsstands December 25, 2007
It's time to put the rumors to rest. Ford has once again brought the Bullitt Mustang to market, and only MM&FF can bring you this exclusive test of the 2008 Mustang Bullitt. From the mods to the muscle, we tell all in the February 2008 issue, on-sale 12.25.07. Here are a few pics from our photo shoot, where we re-created the chase scene from the cult-movie classic, starring Steve McQueen.
The hill-jumping, oil-pan-scraping, tire-shredding chase between Frank Bullitt's Mustang and the villain's Dodge Charger is arguably the best driving scene in big-screen history, and while we didn't get airborne with the Bullitt, we did drive it through the great state of New Jersey and gave a full evaluation of this 315 horsepower Mustang. We'll keep the drag strip performance a secret for now, but we will say that this Bullitt spun the chassis dyno to 288 rwhp and 308 rwtq. Look to Muscle Mustangs and Fast Fords for a full-on feature and the scoop about Ford's latest Pony car.
