Roush 5XR Mustang GT with 525 supercharged horsepower


Roush is remaking the new 2011 Mustang GT, and called it the 2011 ROUSH 5XR Mustang. The Roush 5XR Mustang is going to be constrained to simply 150 models and will be offered in both coupe and convertible body styles.

Making use of ROUSH’s R2300 ROUSHcharger, the Mustang GT’s 5.0-liter V8 will turn out to 525 horsepower and 465 lb- ft of torque. Power is shifted through the only available 6-speed manual transmission. The good news is that all Roush parts and the powertrain are provided along with a 3 year or 36,000 mile warranty, which ever comes first.

Jack Roush, ROUSH chairman said, “I’m always excited to get an opportunity to work on a new engine, and the Ford 5.0-liter is a great platform. It has 412 horsepower [307 kw] to begin with, but our group was able to coax out another 113 horsepower [84 kw] with the ROUSHcharger. The 2011 ROUSH 5XR runs fast, sounds great, and is another amazing addition to the ROUSH Mustang heritage.”

Other additions to stablize the new power can be found in the suspension department, which include new front struts, rear shocks and springs and front and rear stabilizer bars.As for the outside, it receives stainless exhuast tips, full bodykit, new front fascia with driving lamps and upper billet grille, a front chin splitter, side rocker splitters, rear valance and a three-piece boot spoiler, 20-inch rims wrapped in Cooper RS3 rubber.

To round out the looks, the Roush 5XR also receives body stickers, distinctive 5XR badging within and outside and a lettery of genuineness signed by Jack Roush by his own. Choices include color-matched sports leather-based and four-piston brakes with slotted rotors.

The ROUSH 5XR Mustang is going to only be purchased as a post-title vehicle. The recommend retail price will be $15,390 on top of the price of the base Mustang car from Ford. So, you are looking at spending at least $50,000 on the final product of the Roush 5XR Mustang GT.
