This is a modified 720bhp Bullitt Mustang

Fast Ford tuner Steeda ships a modified Bullitt to a UK customer for the first time

Published: 09 Dec 2020

Fancy a modern-day Bullitt Mustang but not content with the standard car’s 459bhp 5.0-litre V8? Not to worry, as fast Ford tuner Steeda has just shipped a modified version to the UK for the very first time. 

Yep, the Florida-based tuner has a European branch, and one of its offerings is a completely revamped version of the modern movie car special. The headline is essentially this – in partnership with McQueen Racing and Steve McQueen’s son Chad McQueen, Steeda will fit a 3.0-litre Whipple twin screw supercharger for power outputs of either 720bhp at Stage One, or 800bhp at Stage Two. Crikey.

The one above is the first one in the UK and is a super-sensible 720bhp example. That’s far from all the work Steeda carries out though. There’s a substantially revised suspension setup, with new springs and a ‘Stop the Hop’ package that stiffens up the rear subframe.

There’s a short shifter thrown on there too, as well as retro-look 20-inch wheels and a sharper front bumper. We’re big fans of the ever-so-slightly updated look, and the Bullitt’s Dark Highland Green paint will never cease to be cool.

Just 300 of the Steeda Bullitt kits will be available Worldwide and other options include a green Alcantara wheel, a rear seat delete and a lightweight sports exhaust. Prices start at £26,000, but that’s only after you’ve sourced the standard Bullitt Mustang. Ouch.

What do we think, Internet? Fancy an 800bhp movie Mustang on UK roads?
