Mustang Bullitt Brake Kit Now Available A La Carte


Source: Muscle Cars & Trucks post

DEARBORN, Mich. – With 480 horsepower, 420 pounds-feet of torque and a curb weight of 3,705 pounds, the 2020 Ford Mustang Bullitt requires appropriate stopping power to manage its power, and its weight. Hence the set of Brembo calipers equipped on every Bullitt.

The setup features six-piston fronts and single piston siding in the rear and are uniquely finished in a Gloss Red hue.

Turns out, the colored calipers are coveted by current customers beyond the Bullitt. So, Ford Performance has readied this brake set for both S550 Mustang GT and Mustang EcoBoost Performance Pack muscle cars. Pricing has not been made immediately available.

Here are further details, as provided by Ford Performance:

– Fits 2015–2020 Mustang GT 5.0L
– Fits 2015–2020 2.3L Mustang EcoBoost Performance Pack
– Fits both right and left-hand drive vehicles
– Front rotors are 15-inches with directional vanes
– Rear rotors are 13-inches with directional vanes

Some stock 2015-2020 Mustang EcoBoost and Mustang GT 17-inch and 18-inch wheels may not clear Bullitt calipers and the kit does not immediately fit 2015-2017 V6 or 2015-2017 Base EcoBoost cars To which, the Ford Performance Techline is open for assistance.

Ford Mustang Bullitt Kit includes:

Bullitt Front Calipers
Bullitt Front Rotors
Bullitt Front Brake Pads
Bullitt Rear Calipers
Bullitt Rear Rotors
Bullitt Rear Brake Pads
Front Brake Hoses
Front and Rear Splash Shields
All needed hardware

The Bullitt is expected to close out its run as a nameplate as soon as the 2021 model year. In its place is likely to be the Mustang Mach 1, which could feature the same kind of hardware as the Bullitt that gives it the performance edge over the Mustang GT, which is thanks to an intake manifold borrowed from the more powerful Shelby GT350, a performance open air intake, a bespoke powertrain control module, and a bigger 87-mm throttle body. The theory is that the Mach 1 will be very similar to the outgoing Bullitt, but will be offered in more colors beyond Dark Highland Green and black.
