Ford Ups The Price Of The 2020 Ford Mustang Bullitt

Have you had your eye on the 2020 model version of the iconic Mustang Bullitt? Well, you can still have one, but it’ll cost you $1,215 more than the original price. Cars Direct reported on Wednesday that the increase brings the price to $48,905. The puzzling part about this? The increase does not include any new equipment or changes. The automaker says that the additional cost is due to market demand.

The Bullitt packs about 20 more horses than the Ford GT’s 480-hp. Other differences between the Bullitt and the GT are a larger throttle body, open-air induction system, and an intake manifold from the Shelby GT350. Oh, and the top speed? 163 mph. In the big picture, the price increase isn’t too extreme, and certainly won’t deter buyers who’ve had their mind made up about the Bullitt.

David Spade’s 1987 Buick Grand National

The Buick Grand National is an American Classic. So it seems fitting that Joe Dirt himself would have one. The car has also been featured on Jay Leno’s Garage. Good new is, it’s had about $7,000 in body updates and engine improvements since the episode was filmed. Those upgrades are clear considering the body looks nearly perfect, and the turbocharged 3.6-liter V6 under the hood is practically music to our ears. That 245 hp and 355 lb-ft of torque just isn’t messing around. Check out these highlights from the episode for all the goodies.

Dodge Challenger Hellcat Gets Powered Up

Nothing like a German take on an American muscle car, am I right? German tuning shop GeigerCars recently got their hands on a 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and named the final product “Cerberus.” It’s important to note that in standard form, the SRT Hellcat is absolutely insane (enter, 717 horsepower). And then we have the Demon, with an output of 840 horsepower. And still, GeigerCars insists on increasing the power even more, 890-hp and 751 lb-ft of torque, to be exact. This power is achieved thanks to tweaks made to the supercharger and ECU.

Other noteworthy upgrades include:

  • Reinforced 4-inch propeller shaft
  • Brembo braking system with six-piston calipers and four-piston calipers at the rear axle
  • Devil’s Rim wheels
  • Widebody kit
  • New hood based on the Demon design

Interested? Geiger cars is charging  €129,000 or $144,570. To be clear, that’s more than double the cost of a standard Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat which would run you at least $58,995.

The Ford Maverick Grabber: A “Jazzy Firecracker”

The Ford Maverick Grabber is one of those obscure muscle cars. Can we even consider it a muscle car? Or does it strike you as something else? Today we’re recognizing the Maverick Grabber simply for what it is – a cool car. Released in 1971, this Ford had the right look without all the weight beared by the competition. That weight (or lack there of) was the Grabber’s ticket to some added speed and the Ford 302 CID V-8 didn’t hurt either. Arguably the best aspect of this car was the aesthetic. The advertising read: “It’s not a superbomb, it’s more of jazzy firecracker.” So there you have it.
