Florent's Bullitt Mustang "Art and Revs!"

Like so many of our Steeda customers, Florent is cool. Florent is the founder and owner not to mention race driver at "Art and Revs" a Luxembourg based specialist in both restoring, racing and selling historic race cars and other super special cars.
Their garage tells a story by itself!Art and Revs GarageAnd I think it is safe to say Florent has one of the coolest offices in the world..

So for a personal set of wheels what could be cooler than a Mustang Bullitt?

Florent had heard about the Steeda Steve McQueen limited edition but sadly it was too late as they have been discontinued, but he has turned to Steeda to give him a subtle styling boost with our awesome Mullholland 20" wheels, which he repainted into a similar look to the Steve McQueen colour scheme, and added a  comprehensive Steeda chassis and suspension overhaul. I think you will agree, look achieved. Subtle but stunning. And credit to that plate choice!
Florent Art and Revs Steeda BullittFlorent asked us for help to make his Bullitt drive like some of the legendary sports and race cars he is used to, but to keep it great for the road and every day driving, especially as he uses it a lot as his winter car. So to give his car the handling prowess that he is used to, we recommended our legendary Dual Rate Ultimate Handling springs to complement his Ford MagneRide shocks, as well as our must have IRS Full Pack, comprising the Steeda IRS Alignment Bushes, IRS Subframe Support Bushes and IRS Subframe Braces. We also added to the rear end with our polybush equipped Steeda Vertical Links. For the front end, we chose our two point front G-Trac brace and our Steeda Strut Tower brace. 

Picture below illustrates the difference in build quality and strength between the OEM Mustang Vertical Link and the Steeda Billet Vertical Link.

Florent was impressed!

"We fitted the parts and the rear suspension is a real surprise, it is now very precise and has a great traction and lateral grip ( use Michelin PS4 ). Today it is 2deg, quite humid and the car moves pretty fast already!"

And here is a nice video to show why you should take what Florent says seriously when he is talking about handling and speed. Here he is is crushing the Goodwood Festival of Speed Hill Climb in a Monster Oreca Playstation Viper, equipped with an 8 litre V10 monster of an engine!

To further enhance the driver feel to the car we added our Steeda Tri-Ax Short-shifter and Shifter Base Bushing Bracket Kit. Again Florent was impressed!

Finally to add a little sound and fury to match those Bullitt vibes he has added a Steeda tune and Steeda X pipe, as well as some enhanced brake pads to help control any speed that somehow gets built up....  It's safe to say the rear view of this Mustang will be the one that is most commonly seen!

Florent knows, Speed Matters! which is why he chose Steeda.

Florent wants to take things further and his next step is adding a set of Steeda roll bars to tune the car to his driving style more, and some front end control arms, plus he is planning a gearbox change to get a more aggressive gear ratio, so stay tuned!

We loved his great feedback, and frankly we really want to go visit him in Art and Revs to marvel at all the automotive gems he is surrounded by! Big thanks to him for the pictures and feedback.
