Roush Performance is an American automotive company, founded in 1995 and primarily involved in the engineering, development, and manufacturing of high-performance components for street and competitive racing applications. The company's namesake is automotive mogul Jack Roush, who also owns and operates it. Modifications to Ford vehicles are completed at their Livonia, Michigan factory and include upgrades such as suspension, body, interior and engine, depending on the particular model.
This is a one owner from new, 87,000 miles Mustang GT with the stage 2 Roush conversion. The vendor, when ordering new from the dealership in California before shipping to the UK, decided that he wanted just the 'performance' from the conversion kit, rather than the styling incorporated in the whole Roush package. Roush therefore upgraded the suspension including stiffer roll bars which, our vendor reports, vastly improves the handling from the standard GT, along with upgrading the brakes and the ever important supercharger. A short-shift gearbox was fitted and a bespoke Roush exhaust has resulted in a mean sounding American muscle car that certainly packs a significant punch, producing 435bhp (+135) and 400lbft (+80).
The vendor has enjoyed every mile of the 87,000 completed and has kept the car in great condition in his ownership but the time has come to reluctantly move on. Prior to the auction, the Mustang will be MoTd and benefit from a full year's Road Fund Licence. These upgrades by a famous company to an already fairly serious American 'muscle car', have created one of the meanest, leanest, hardest and fastest road cars that you are liable to experience.
