The V8 lives on. You'll have to click through for the vid, but timestamp highlights:


The camera isn't shy about getting up close, and at the 1:30 mark we peer inside to find something surprising – a prominent Bullitt badge on the steering wheel. Some might conclude this is actually a Bullitt prototype, but that's highly unlikely considering the early stage of development. In all likelihood it's simply a parts bin item used for this prototype, but it's an interesting find nevertheless.

The video also lets us hear, without question, a V8 engine under the hood. We clearly hear it on a few occasions, though the best sound bite comes at the 2:28 mark during a brief acceleration run. The engine sounds deep and raspy, which has us wondering exactly what's under the hood. The familiar 5.0-liter seems a certainty, but a 6.8-liter V8 could be in the works as well.

I don’t believe there is a 6.8l in the works
