If you’re a Mustang fan, you’ve heard of Roush Performance. For over 20 years this tuning company has worked very closely with Ford vehicles, especially the Ford Mustang. Now that the upgraded 2018 Ford Mustang has hit the showrooms, Roush is seizing the opportunity to make their own concept version. The Mustang by Roush is sporting a more modernized look of the classic Grabber Green color, as well as sharing some styling similarities with the iconic Mustang Boss 429.
The standard Mustang GT is already an intimidating car, but the hard work from Roush has turned their concept car into a mean, green monster. With major changes to the front exterior, the Roush-modified GT has a notably more aggressive stance. The company increased the size of the side vents under the daytime running lights, widened the main intake, added a huge carbon-fiber splitter, and replaced the standard honeycomb mesh grille with horizontal slats.
Some additional exterior changes include a modified hood, wheel arch extensions, and “Roush” lettering. Although there are no photos of the car’s rear, reports have confirmed that the special edition will have a revised diffuser and a large carbon-fiber spoiler. The vehicle will be riding on custom 20-inch wheels that were created by Roush and Vossen, all wrapped up in Continental Extreme Contact tires.
Seeing as how this concept has been released before the SEMA Show, there are currently no pictures available to showcase the interior of the vehicle. I’m sure there is a huge list of upgrades and changes, but the majority of the changes will be kept in the dark until the car makes a showroom debut. That being said, we do know that the inside will be sporting Recaro racing seats paired with Sparco four-point racing harnesses and a carbon-fiber rear-seat delete.
Roush has also been working quite diligently under the hood, modifying the standard 5.0-liter V8 engine. Output figures have not been released yet, but we have been told that a new performance cold-air intake has been added and the exhaust system has been replaced. It would be safe to assume that this engine should pump out more than the standard 460 horsepower, but until official numbers are released, nothing can be confirmed. Keep your eyes open for this awesome vehicle at the SEMA Show and look for plenty more Roush modified Mustangs in the future.
