2011 Roush 5XR Ford MustangEnlarge Photo
When it comes to custom Mustangs, Roush is considered by many to be second only to the Shelby name. Today the custom house has revealed its new 2011 Roush 5XR Ford Mustang based around the 2011 Ford Mustang GT 5.0-liter V-8 engine.
Thanks to the edition of a ‘R2300 ROUSHcharger’ supercharger kit, peak output of the 5.0-liter V-8 has been raised to a very delectable 525 horsepower and 465 pound-feet of torque.
To handle the road, a suspension kit consisting of new front struts, rear shocks and rear springs, plus front and rear stabilizer bars has been installed. The package also includes 20 inch wheels shod with high-performance Cooper RS3 tires. Stopping power comes from big four-piston brakes with 14-inch slotted rotors.
Visual differences between the Roush-prepped Mustangs and the regular fleets include a new bodykit, driving lamps and a three-piece decklid spoiler. A custom upper billet grille streamlines the front of the vehicle and provides some additional cooling to the engine.
The 2011 Roush 5XR package has a starting price of $15,390. The customer still has to supply their own base Ford Mustang chassis. Only 150 packages are planned and each come with a 3-year/36,000 mile warranty on the powertrain and ROUSH components. Both Coupe and Convertible Mustangs are compatible with the 2011 Roush 5XR package, though only those models equipped with a six-speed manual transmission.
