Ford Mustang Bullitt Goes For A (Legal) High-Speed Run On The Autobahn

The Mustang Bullitt is a pony car in high demand and there are a number of reasons for that.

First and foremost, it has an eye-catching look inspired by the original and is a real head-turner. In addition, it is outfitted with the most powerful Coyote 5.0-liter V8 currently produced by Ford with a total of 480 horses.

Mated to the Bullitt’s impressive engine is a six-speed manual transmission that sends power to the rear wheels via a 3.73 Torsen limited-slip rear differential.

Ford says the car can reach 100 km/h (62 mph) in a brisk 4.6 seconds and continue through to a top speed of 162 mph (260 km/h). This video of the car on the Autobahn shows it reaching that top speed with little difficulty.

There are some interesting things to note from these AutoTopNL videos. The first is just how long the gearing of the Mustang Bullitt is. The clip reveals that drivers can hit almost 140 km/h (87 mph) in second gear, while third will get you to 200 km/h (124 mph) and the – electronically limited – top speed of 260 km/h (162 mph) can be hit in fourth. Without a limiter and with different gear ratios, the Bullitt’s top speed would probably be closer to the 300 km/h (186 mph) mark.

Of course, there is no practical need to have a vehicle which can hit 300 km/h unless you plan on blasting down the Autobahn. Which, coincidentally, is what the following video is all about, although 260 is already more than enough, if you ask us.

    Hopefully they’ll do one with the limiter bypassed because this was underwhelming.
