Is The Bullitt More Than Just A Slightly Upgraded Mustang GT?

Looking at the numbers, the special edition 2019 Mustang Bullitt doesn't seem all that different than the V8-powered GT on which it's based.

It's only mildly quicker in a straight line, maxing out at 163 mph (263 km/h) instead of 155 (250 km/h), and it only has 15 extra horsepower and the exact same torque figure at 420 lb-ft (570 Nm).

But as this chart, courtesy of CJPonyParts, shows, the devil is in the details when it comes to the Bullitt. In other words, it's the little things that make it stand out not just from the GT, but from any other Mustang currently on sale.

Instead of standard quad-exhaust tips, the Bullitt comes with an active valve performance exhaust, boasting Black NitroPlate tips that give it that signature burble that's sure to wake up all your neighbors.

Other differences to the GT include the Fastback-only body style, the limited color palette and the fact that you can only get the Bullitt with a manual transmission, which has that lovely cue ball knob.

Buyers can also spec their Bullitt with Ford's MagneRide semi-active suspension, black leather-trimmed Recaro seats and an Electronics Package, which adds sat-nav, memory option for the driver's seat and mirrors, a better sound system and Blind Spot Information with Cross-Traffic Alert.
