For Sale in our Detroit Showroom is a very iconic 2001 Ford Mustang GT Bullitt. For those of you who don't know the history, the cars are named after McQueen's legendary 1968 police drama/car chase flick Bullitt, inspired by the green 390 fatsback that Det. Frank Bullitt used to jump over San Francisco's hilly streets and outwit Dodge-driving bad guys in the movie. Bullitt is one of the most iconic movies ever made, so if you're going to name a car after it, it had better not just be some fancy graphics-and-wheels package. Luckily, this 2001 Bullitt Mustang disappoints in that department. This 2001 Bullitt arrived on the streets as an enhanced version of that year's Mustang GT. Opting for the Bullitt got you some exterior enhancements like a blackened grille, a deleted spoiler, Bullitt badges and 17-inch wheels. There are some handling goodies too, like thicker rear and thinner front sway bars and a front body brace. It also claimed the larger disc brakes from the SVT Cobra. The standard 4.6-liter V8 was given even more Cobra enhancements like a new cast aluminum intake manifold and the 57-mm twin bore throttle body. The result meant slight upgrades to 265 horsepower and 305 lb-ft of torque, and while those numbers seem laughable from a V8 today, it still got the Bullitt moving from 0 to 60 mph in 5.6 seconds which is pretty impressive for the new millennium. This future collectible will not last long and is sure to please its next enthusiast.
