Steve McQueen Edition Bullitt Mustang

The release announcement of the latest and in terms of sheer coolness definitely the greatest Steeda special edition Mustang yet.

We are very proud to announce the Steve McQueen Edition Bullitt Mustang

Bullitt Steeda McQueen Edition

"Ford’s Mustang has always been a big part of my dad’s legend. I wanted to kick the already strong performance up several notches without losing that essential style that makes this car so desirable.   Less is more.  This Special Edition reflects the lessons my dad ingrained in me about what made his personal cars so desirable.”

Chad McQueen, Professional Racer & Steve McQueen’s only son

 





Too Hot for the Day -- Too Cool for the Night

There’s cool… And there’s Steve McQueen catching air and fishtailing through the streets of San Francisco cool… 

Steve McQueen. Whether on the silver screen or in real life he embodied effortless Cool.

It’s that Twinkle in the eye. A little Swagger. That quiet don’t-mess-with-this-guy-confidence. Nonchalant. Composed. Always calm.

Yet hardwired for action. Friendly. But slightly aloof. Controlled. But with a hint of ready violence lurking nearby.

Steve McQueen was who every little boy wanted to grow up to be.  And every grown man imagined themselves to be.  

The Steve McQueen Edition Bullitt Mustang is the car every little boy wants to grow up to drive.  And every grown man imagines in his garage.


STRICTLY LIMITED to 300 units globally / year and based off the Bullitt Mustang (only available during the allocated window from Ford)
This collectors
edition which be one to treasure forever...




Aside from the fact its GORGEOUS sitting on specially created HRE wheels and Steeda's stunningly effective suspension in the legendary Bullitt Highland Green colour this Bullitt will take performance to the next level.... Just as Steve would have wanted....

With numbers low, contact Haynes ASAP to put your order in for a base Bullitt and let them know you want it to become a Steeda McQueen Edition.

Initial SPEC:

Steve McQueen would be proud - Frank Bullitt would be jealous

Steeda Driving Experience 3 - May 11th 2018

Wow what a day. Attendees were few this time but they were top class! We wanted to keep numbers down and focus on media creation and content as were filming and doing photography a well as some testing of our own. This was the opposite to our previous SMUK day earlier in the year which was packed out!!

Read the report SMUK DAY HERE

One of the vehicles we were filming was the Ford UK Heritage Centre Mustang, which is not only Supercharged to 670 HP but also Steeda equipped and now shod with gorgeous gunmetal Velgen Split 5 wheels. It looked stunning!





Ford were kind enough to support the day by also bringing along their Ford Performance equipped car AND a new MY 18 Mustang for us to take a look at and test drive on the track too! Great stuff and a real privilege. Read our MY 18 Launch Report HERE...

Need less to say Ford have done a great job!

Ford UK & Steeda Line up at Steeda Driving Experience 3

Pete from Michelin was also kind enough to come down, and of course one of the many "upgrades" on the new MY18 Mustang is the fact it is now shod with Michelins from the get go. You're welcome! We at Steeda know that for optimum performance, your need optimal tyres, and that is what Michelin give us.
Phenomenal rear grip, which lasts right to the bottom of the tread. not to mention that oh so sexy Velvet Touch finish!



Customer Nick brought his yellow fully Steeda loaded GT which looked great and he continued to regain his driving confidence, and David and his partner Anna ran a ding dong competition in their fairly stock GT. However stay tuned as big things are coming for this Mustang, with a full raft of modifications on the way, including some limited edition Velgens!



As we say on a Steeda Driving Experience Day: IF you're spinning , you're winning!




Bailey from Haynes Ford came along too, and was glad to get a chance in the new 2018 car too.




Dans S197 was looking killer.... Awesome pic courtesy of Terry Ffrench Graham photography!







And finally the day came to a halt while we were all privileged to watch an incredible display of acrobatics from the queen of the skies, an old WWII Reconnaissance Spitfire!



JOIN US on our next Steeda Driving Experience Day on Friday 21st September! BOOK HERE

MY2018 Mustang Launch - So Much Goodness. Ford LISTENS!

Steeda UK were lucky enough to be invited along by our great friends Ford UK to the new MY 18 Mustang press launch at Santa Pod this week.

They were also kind enough to attend our last Steeda Driving Experience and bring along a new MY18 for me to have a go in so we could get a feel for what was coming! OK OK, the US has had it for a while and is setting records already, but we want to see what the fuss is about here as a LOT that the EU edition Mustang S550 initially missed out on has been rectified with is facelift launch....




They also brought along their Ford Heritage Mustang, which is Supercharged, has a bunch of Ford Performance and Steeda parts on it, and also now a cracking set of Velgen Split 5 Wheels, shod of course with Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tyres! With the new wheels and its new look stripes, we all agreed it looked knock out!

So what is the fuss about with the 18 update? Surely it just looks a bit different up front?

Orange Fury Mustang with 5 spoke forge option

Answer: A LOT! Ford has clearly listened to EU and UK market feedback carefully and a number of 'minor' misses which meant a LOT to customers have been rectified; such as:

1. DRL Running Lights!!!! YES!!!! The Tribars finally light up!

2. Hood Vents! Yes we finally have them, and yes they look GOOOD!

3. An exhaust! OK well the old GT had an exhaust, but nobody noticed... this a MUSTANG 5.0 V8 dammit! Now with the active valved quad tip system people will sit up and pay attention! IF you want them to! Good neighbour mode, means you can calm down the V8 thunder when you want.

4. Michelin Tyres as standard! Yes a LOT of people were not impressed by the OEM Pirellis and now things have stepped up by bringing Steeda's chosen tyre partner in Europe on board as the OEM provider! We wholeheartedly agree!



5. RECAROS! Sport seats options at last!

6. A better selection of OEM wheels. OK they are still 19" but at least there are some choices now. We still say a set of Velgens will trump the lot!  8)  - OK perhaps this one was just me? But anyway....


Of course this isn't all, but all of the above directly answers EU customer feedback and we applaud the Blue Oval for taking note and stepping up in a big way!

So what else is new?

7. BULLITT! Ah yeah the Highland Green (and black????) beauty is back in S550 guise, with looks, power, handling and more. This special Edition launches in June for pre order with deliveries beginning towards the end of the year. Perhaps if you can get a friend to order a black one, you can recreate the chase... (just don't tell them before they buy that the black car will lose...and crash and burn). There is a LOT of excitement around the arrival of the Bullitt version.

OK, OK back to the "normal" changes......

8. POWER! The new high tech injection V8 takes thing forward with the magical combo of more power (450bhp or so) AND more MPG! The 2.3 Ecoboost is returned to have a little lower BHP but better torque so better all around performance and eco figures.

9. Transmission upgrades. The auto goes beserk adding 4 MORE cogs to create a 10 speed BEAST! which Steeda has been doing wonders with .. Check our "Silver Bullet " development car in action below: Also the 6 speed manual is upgraded to a twin clutch system and the ratios have been jiggled a bit...





10. MAGNERIDE! Yes the GT350 hyper accurate magnetic, electrically controlled damping system is now a very nice and affordable option. A great starting point for someone who wants a capable comfortable car, 

11. TFT hi tech dash display. Adjustable and sexy. We like it, bringing the Mustang firmly into the 21st century!

12. DRAG MODE! Need we say more?

13. Orange Fury! And more great colours!




14. Gadgets! Doodads like lane assist, auto brake, auto headlights, etc. Things we loved in the Mondeo now make an appearance in the pony car. great! 

15, 16 etc OK there was a load more stuff, but that's the main stuff I can remember! 

IMPRESSIONS OVERALL.

Well Ford has smashed it out of the park. 
The package is (and was!) a great starting point, but now, especially with the exhaust and magneride, someone can drive away thinking, great, no need to get stuck in straight away!

Of course the option to personalise it, style it and to improve performance is still there (just see the silver bullet above!) and we at Steeda are here to help you create your perfect Mustang, but Ford have just given us an even better tool to sharpen! Hats off fellas!

iNews- The Q500 finds another fan! + Q500 Dyno Run testing

A great review from iNews!

READ THE REVIEW HERE:

Highlights:

"It immediately feels more focused and connected, although the ride is also better at dealing with rough roads. It’s more incisive, has lots more grip, and the extra sharpness of the steering is also welcome."

"Chuck in an exhaust system that’s pure Bullitt and you’ve a fully-honed sports car that’s a world away from a regular Mustang. It feels like Porsche’s given it the once-over and perfected it into something more eager, agile and immediate, "




We also took the Q500 down to our Friends and approved Steeda installers Perfect Touch for a couple of dyno runs and have set up a
STEEDA DYNO SHOOT OUT DAY on Saturday June 23rd (9am til 4pm)

Pistonheads - Another cracking Q500 Review!

Well Pistonheads, the UKs premier car enthusiast discussion forum and website, just published their review of the Q500 and they love it as well.

"there can be little doubt the Q500 is a world away from a normal 5.0-litre model in terms of eagerness, agility and immediacy. It's not flighty or edgy, rather a vast improvement that makes the Enforcer immensely more satisfying to drive"

You can read the full review here:

Pistonheads Q500 Enforcer First Drive

And feel free to add to the comments with your good (hopefully!) Steeda experiences!
