Roush Creates 3 Gorgeous Mustangs for your Driving Pleasure
We can all appreciate the muscular good looks of the new Ford Mustang, but we knew it was only a matter of time before those kooks over at Roush gave the Mustang its own custom look. And that they did. While it may not have the power of the Hennessey HPE700, the Roush trio brings handsome, aggressive looks to the table, with a hint of power squeezed in for good measure (click on the links to learn more). Roush Mustang RS
I’ll start with the RS, being the lowliest of the group. Yes, it does have a V6, but, like the factory-bred Mustang lineup, that 300-horsepower engine puts out less than its 4-cylinder counterpart.
The Roush custom gets a new fascia, front grille, decklid, badging, and a few other cues here and there. Nothing too crazy.
Roush Mustang Stage 1
Take a step above the RS, and you’re opting for the 4-cylinder, 310-horsepower pony car that still returns 32 mpg, believe it or not. Like the RS, Stage 1 gets only some minor upgrades.
Those upgrades include an aggressive new fascia, a front chin splitter, a rear deck spoiler, and a fancy new Roush exhaust system. Not to mention the newer, bigger wheels and tires.
Roush Mustang Stage 2
But say neither the RS nor the Stage 1 strike your fancy— you want something with looks and power. Look no further than the Roush Mustang Stage 2.
This hotted-up Mustang GT gives you everything you’d expect in a V8-powered pony car — 435 horsepower and 25 mpg — but with it, a more aggressive look than the previous two, and even more Roush bodywork. That includes a high-flow grille, a race-inspired front fascia, and high-performance Cooper RS3 tires, just to name a few.
None of these upgrades will cost you more than $8,495 on top of the standard Mustang price for the Stage 2, $5,895 for the Stage 1, and only $4,495 for the RS. Not bad, not bad at all.
