Supercharged ‘Stang also gets cosmetic upgrades
We know Ford is bringing out a Mustang Shelby GT500 with more than 700 hp next year, but f0r those that can’t wait that long for a Hellcat-challenging Mustang, there’s another option. The folks at Roush Performance have put their R2560 Supercharger in the Mustang to give it 710 hp and 610 lb-ft of torque.
Based on the Mustang GT, the 2018 Roush JackHammer Mustang comes with a host of special upgrades. It gets a Roush adjustable coil-over suspension, Continental ExtremeContact Sport tires, special badging, and standard gloss black wheels. On the sides, you’ll find a hockey stripe design, and buyers can opt for a performance stripe over the hood and top of the car as well.
The Roush upgrade is available on fastback Mustangs equipped with either the six-speed manual or 10-speed automatic transmission. On the configurator, now live, customers can choose between 11 different exterior colors as well as other options such as leather seating and a quad-tip performance exhaust finished in black.
Prices for the JackHammer Mustang start at $14,765 above the cost of the base vehicle. The cars also come with a 5-year, 60,000-mile limited powertrain warranty. The upgrade is installed at the delivering dealership within hours of purchase, Roush says. But interested parties should act quickly because only 200 copies will be made.
