The Mustang Bullitt also offers magnetic suspension, equipped on our $51,385 tester. Using iron filings in the dampers that respond to electromagnets coiled around them, the suspension can adjust its stiffness 1,000 times per second as you go around corners to keep the car flat and stable. That, combined with direct and quick steering, make the modern Mustang Bullitt an incredibly rewarding car to drive.
If the driving dynamics didn’t sell you, the sound certainly will. The Bullitt comes with an active exhaust system, able to switch seamlessly between “don’t wake the neighbors” mode and “holy hell, the world is ending and this is its last cry” mode. The deep, guttural bellow of this V-8 made me grin like a 12-year-old whenever I let it rip.
