ROUSH Performance, in partnership with the Ford Motor Company, is going to put the very last production 2008 ROUSH P-51ATM Mustang under the gavel and spotlights of the Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Event at West Palm Beach, Fla. This car, number 151 in a limited production run of 151, will be sold on Saturday, March 29 with proceeds going to the Salute to Education Scholarship charity.
"Number 151 is a pretty significant car for ROUSH considering the total inventory of ROUSH P-51ATM Mustangs basically sold out within 24 hours when the dealer order banks were opened up," said Joe Thompson, general manager of ROUSH Performance. "Whoever ends up with this car will truly acquire a part of ROUSH history."
Jack Roush, the motorsports legend, NASCAR team owner, and aviation enthusiast who owns and flies his own World War II P-51 fighter planes, will be in attendance personally overseeing the bidding on the highest horsepower Mustang that ROUSH Performance has every built. He is flying in from the NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Martinsville (Va.) Speedway specifically for the auction.
Shown in the Barrett-Jackson catalog as lot number 667, the ROUSH P-51ATM is expected to be seen going under the gavel live during the SPEED Channel television broadcast that evening.
When Jack Roush pulled off the cover and unveiled the new 510-horsepower ROUSH P-51ATM Mustang at the SEMA Show in October, it took just moments before the telephones started ringing at the offices with dealers and consumers clamoring to get hold of the muscle car.
During World War II, the P-51 Mustang was hailed as a savior of aviation and certainly played a major part in ending the conflict. This long range fighter escorted Allied bombers over Europe and Hermann Goering, the head of Germany’s Luftwaffe, summarized the plane’s role by stating, "The day I saw P-51 Mustangs flying over Berlin, I knew the jig was up."
Owners of the new Ford GT500 are justifiably proud of their car and proud of the 500 horsepower under the hood. Now the engineers at ROUSH and Ford Racing Technologies, the collective leaders in Ford powertrain development, have unveiled a new Ford Racing GT500 Supercharger which boosts the performance to 605 horsepower.
ROUSH Performance, America’s leading powertrain engineering group, has added an additional 30 horsepower to their legendary ROUSHchargerTM system for the Ford Mustang GT; this increases the output of this supercharger system to a total of 445 horsepower under the hood.
ROUSH Performance continues to pay tribute to Ford’s legendary history with the 428R Mustang, a limited edition pony car which follows in the tremendous success of their 427R model introduced last year and which remains in the ROUSH product lineup for the 2008 model year.
When talking about racing and Mustangs there’s no one better than Roush. Roush took the experience from more than 110 wins and 20 national championships and put it into the latest 2008 ROUSH 427R Trak Pak.
Roush Performance today unveiled the Nitemare F-150, a 100 units limited edition that the company says will be the biggest nightmare for all the other pickup.
Based on a standard cab version of the F-150, the Roush Nitemare is powered by a 5.4L, 3 valve engine that delivers 445 hp and a peak torque of 500 lbs. The 2007 Nitemare is a menacing tone-on-tone and its power-to-weight ratio will ensure that this monster has plenty of haul.
The Nitemare also features: intake manifolds, (...) > Full story
