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.

Press release

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.

I like the decent styling of the car. The accessories here are quite awesome and cheap. Well, I’m really impressed with the performance of the v8 engine here.

hmm. I don’t think that the red and white theme for the car looks good. The figure performance is awesome. Aside from the updates in the styling I would be happier to see an upgraded engine performance as well.

Doesn’t seem to make sense, if you have a ROUSH product you do it for the performance upgrades—NO ? Maybe they are under pressure to sell a bunch of stuff because Roush Fenway may have to send a lot more bucks to the RED SOX to help fund that signing of 2 ballplayers for 300 million !

$4,600 for a body kit and a few stickers? Great way to burn some money IMO.A fool and his money .

Roush has always sold an appearance package, and they have been selling this one since 2010. Paul Lienert, needs to learn what he is talking about.

totally agreed, it looks greater if you see it personally but on the advertisements it looks .

The ‘Stang now uses the 2011 Roush Sport Mustang name, and comes with certain visual and tech modifications.

Roush has bundled a variety of aero body components into a relatively affordable $4,600 kit that can be supplemented with individually priced performance hardware.

The Chevy sponsored Cruze ad disguised as an InsideLine story, is a huge disappointment. I hope IL does not continue this practice. What a huge sell out!

I like the imbedded advertisements, which are a lot better than the self-expanding and incredibly obtrusive ads they had before.

I think this wheel design is way to used and I for one I’m getting bored of it.

Never liked the american cars. Probably that’s why the americans prefer the german cars. They are so much more refined and better thought.

This car shape makes me think of the Transformers movie. It has that kind of shape! Anyone else feels the same?

26MPG is nowadays fuel efficient? lol Probably based on a 1 gallon / mile standard is indeed extremely efficient.
