2008 Bullitt Mustang GT

Bullitt Mustang Update: Ford Says Window Sticker isn't Real

Yesterday we brought you the news of what appeared to be the first window sticker for the 2018 Ford Mustang Bullitt GT, but according to Ford Motor Company, that sticker was not produced by the automaker – although my expectations of seeing a new Bullitt Mustang remain.

The folks at Mustang6g.com have discovered a whole lot of early information on the 2017 and newer Ford Mustang, so when a window sticker for the 2018 Ford Mustang Bullitt GT surfaced on that website, it was big news. That sticker seemingly confirmed that the Motor Company is planning to roll out a new Bullitt Mustang tribute car for the upcoming model year, which would mark 10 years since the last Bullitt Mustang was offered for the 2008 model year.

Unfortunately, according to Ford, that 2018 Ford Mustang Bullitt GT window sticker was not created by the Motor Company and it is not legitimate. However, my hopes of seeing a 2018 Bullitt Mustang are not yet dashed.

The Fake Window Sticker

So, Ford Motor Company is stating that the 2018 Ford Mustang Bullitt GT window sticker posted online is not legitimate, but that doesn’t mean that there is no new Bullitt on the way. There could be a 2018 Mustang Bullitt GT coming and the legitimacy of this window sticker has little to do with the future of the vehicle. Some people seem to think that Ford’s debunking of the sticker means that the Bullitt Mustang simply isn’t coming, but we have to look back at the hints earlier this year.

Back in February, Ford released a behind-the-scenes video with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson making a Ford commercial. During that look at what goes on behind the camera, we get a look at some interesting artwork on the back wall which undoubtedly shows some sort of Bullitt Mustang design. The dark green exterior color is right, the black wheels are right and what appears to be a faux rear gas cap with “Bullitt” scribed across the middle pretty much seals the deal that this mysterious car is a Bullitt Mustang…even if only a design study. You can watch the video below, with the alleged Bullitt Mustang appearing around the 3-minute mark.

However, that artwork in that video is just too well done for me to believe that it is the Ford Motor Company teasing us without any future plans for a new Bullitt Mustang. Those aren’t sketches – they are near-final product design images with all sorts of detail, so I believe that we will see a new Bullitt Mustang, even if it is not for the 2018 model year.
