Roush Unveils P-51 Mustang Tribute, Packs 727 horsepower
The P-51 Mustang is a culmination of Jack Roush’s personal passion for both aviation and performance vehicles, and is the most powerful model ever, according to the company.
Under the hood, the 2017 Roush is powered by a Roush Eaton TVS supercharged Coyote 5.0-liter V8 engine that delivers 727-horsepower (564 kW) and 610 pound-feet (827 Newton-meters) of torque. The engine can be coupled either with 6-speed manual or automatic transmission. Up front, the exterior enhancements include a new front fascia complete with a custom horizontal grille, a new hood, larger side skirts and scoops, an aggressive carbon fiber front splitter and painted P-51 badging. At the back there’s a black coated tips laser-etched with a custom logo ROUSH Active Exhaust System, which offers the driver to choice between three distinct preloaded exhaust sound profiles, as well as a “Custom” setting that can be tuned with a mobile application for virtually endless exhaust sound possibilities. The Roush P-51 package also features ROUSH TrakPak components including a 3-way adjustable coilover suspension and lightweight black forged wheels by Weld fitted with Continental ExtremeContact Sport tires (295/35ZR19), while the manual transmission option also comes outfitted with PFC 2-piece rotors and updated friction pads.
The interior of the ROUSH P-51 welcomes custom P-51 Amaretto Tuscany leather seats, with suede leather inserts on the door cards and dashboard as well as a P-51 gauge logo, red ROUSH shifter ball, ROUSH Performance pedals, and a P-51 interior plaque.
The company will produce only 51 2017 ROUSH P-51 Mustangs for the 2017 model year, with a retail price of $42,500 above the price of the base 2017 Mustang GT. Each will come with a full factory 3-year/36,000-mile warranty.
