Your Ford Mustang Can Now Stop Like A Bullitt

Sports Cars / Comments

With a new Ford Performance brake kit.

Besides the specialized Shelby models, the 2020 Ford Mustang Bullitt is the most powerful example of Ford's legendary pony car. The Bullitt starts at $46,705, making it significantly less expensive than the Shelby GT350 ($60,440) but well over the base price of a Mustang GT ($35,630). Not only does the Bullitt offer unique styling, interior changes, and homages to the original 1968 film, but it also bumps the output of the 5.0-liter V8 engine to 480 horsepower (up from 460 hp in the GT)and 420 lb of torque.

To bring all of this grunt to a screeching halt, the Bullitt is equipped with Gloss Red aluminum Brembo rotors with six-piston fixed calipers in the front and single-piston calipers in the rear. These brakes were previously exclusive to the Bullitt but Ford Performance Parts will now offer them as an odd-on for other Mustang models.

Ford Performance Parts will offer the original equipment brakes of the Bullitt for late model Mustang GT and Mustang EcoBoost vehicles with the Performance Pack. Even though you won't be able to have the Dark Highland Green Paint, Bullitt accents, and additional power, Ford says these brakes will give Mustang owners their "own personal slice of Steve McQueen's legendary legacy."

If you own a 2015 to 2020 Mustang GT with the 5.0-liter V8 or a 2015-2020 Mustang EcoBoost Performance Pack with the 2.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder, this new brake kit will fit your vehicle.

Ford does warn that 2015-2017 V6 and base EcoBoost cars will not accommodate the kit and some 17- and 18-inch wheels from 2015-2020 EcoBoost and GT models may not clear the calipers.

The kit includes 15-inch front rotors, 13-inch rear rotors, front and rear pads and rotors, front brake hoses, front and rear splash guards, and all necessary hardware for installation. Ford has priced the kit at $2,695 plus the cost of installation.
