Roush is back to bring us yet another special Mustang to add to its lineup. Coming straight from its unveiling of the 5XR, Roush is now bringing us the final muscle car for the 2011 model year called the Sport Mustang. Based on the 2011 Ford Mustang 5.0, this Sport model adds a dramatic Aero Body Kit and signature graphics.
Roush’s exterior package includes a new billet grille that provides some additional cooling to the engine, a new front fascia and front splitter, rear fascia, side splitters, and a three-piece rear wing which add appearance and aggressiveness to the car.
Roush wanted to keep the engine for the Mustang the same so the 5.0L V8 Coyote engine still delivers the standard 412hp and 390 lb.-ft. of torque. What they did add was a slew of options including sport graphics ($530), lowering springs ($580), four-piece performance pedals ($200), sport leather seating ($1,725), and convertible light bar ($910). According to the tuner, future options will be available and include a new sport exhaust system and a new sport brake kit.
Press release after the jump.
The 2011 ROUSH® Sport™ Mustang sends an immediate signal that this is no ordinary Mustang. ROUSH’s dramatic Aero Body Kit and signature graphics grab your attention, providing an exciting enhancement to the ageless appeal of this Ford classic.
The ROUSH billet grille cleans up the front end while providing some additional cooling to the engine, and the added components such as a new front fascia and front splitter, rear fascia, side splitters, and a three-piece rear wing add appearance and aggressiveness to the car.
The new rear fascia is a one-piece design which improves the fit and finish; the part is injection-molded by ROUSH Manufacturing in an OEM-level TPO plastic which, in the black color with decorative grain, will help reduce rock chips.
The heart of the 2011 ROUSH Sport Mustang is the all-new Ford 5.0L, V-8 engine. Nicknamed "Coyote" during the development phase, this powerplant generates 412 horsepower (and 390 lb.-ft. of torque), yet still can obtain 26 MPG on the highway. Employing twin independent variable camshaft timing (TiVCT) and cold air induction, the new 2011 Mustang engines deliver more power, greater off-the-line low-end torque – and increased fuel efficiency. There’s no such thing as compromise for these ponies.
