The American Mustang tuners at Roush Performance have announced details about their plans to upgrade the all new 2011 pony car. There will be two different versions of the modified Mustang, appropriately called Stage 1 and Stage 2; with both starting out with the blue oval’s new 5.0 Liter power plant producing 412 HP and 390 lb-ft of torque. The Stage 1 package will consist of nothing more than a few aesthetic changes including the Roush body kit, meanwhile the Stage 2 kit adds a few new suspension parts to improve the 21st century pony car’s handling package.

According to the man himself, Jack Roush, "the 2011 ROUSH Stage 1 and Stage 2 Mustangs will represent an incredible value by blending appearance and handling with an amazing base Ford engine package... I expect that the 2011 Stage 1 and Stage 2 Roush Mustangs could come close to matching the performance of some Roushcharged Mustangs we have offered in prior model years which will make them extremely exciting to drive and at a reasonable starting price point." While this is well and good for now, Roush fans are accustomed to a blower under the hood, and they can rest assured because the team is hard at work with a few power adding parts which will be available sometime this summer.

Ford’s in house high performance division, Ford Racing, and the NASCAR specialists at Roush Fenway Racing have just unveiled the new 2010 NASCAR Nationwide Mustang . The 21st century thoroughbred will have no problem catching up with the competition when the new car makes its racing debut next July. This will not only add a bit of enthusiasm into the NASCAR circuit but it should undoubtedly help the blue oval move a few more units. Despite contemporary automaker’s reluctance to spend money on competitive racing programs, the old adage “win on Sunday, sell on Monday” still holds true today.

2010 Roush 540RH

Starting off with the same 540 HP supercharged 4.6 Liter V8 as their Stage 3 Mustang , Roush adds back a few of the 2010 pony car ’s factory components to create a real stop light drag racing sleeper. That is because almost all of what makes the Roush 540RH, or the Hammer, so special is hidden underneath the car’s sheet metal. Taking advantage of the Mustang GT’s excellent balance and capable power plant, Roush uses the same parts that makes their highest performing modified Mustang so spectacular and then adds it back into a more mundane looking Mustang that will only make you give it a second thought after the pony car gallops off into the distance and the whine of the supercharger fades away with it. So if flying under the radar of the local law enforcement while keeping up with Cobras is something that interests you, the $46,145 Roush 540RH is definitely worth considering.
