The American P-51 Mustang was one of the most formidable fighter planes ever to grace the skies during WWII, the Korean War, and more. And it is from this classic aerial ace that ROUSH Performance has gotten the name for their latest release. It also happens to be the most powerful pre-titled American car ever built – meaning you can buy it as is from a dealership and drive it off the lot.
The 2017 ROUSH P-51 Mustang, as they’re calling it, acquired this accolade thanks to being equipped with a supercharged 727-horsepower ROUSH Eaton TVS Coyote 5.0-liter V8 engine – which is, frankly speaking, delightfully absurd. To cope with that power, it’s also fitted with a 3-way adjustable coilover suspension, Weld lightweight black forged wheels, and Continental ExtremeContact Sport tires. And you don’t have to sacrifice style for power, either, as the cab is loaded with custom P-51 Amaretto Tuscany leather seating, a ROUSH red shifter ball, performance pedals, and more. But, if you want one, you’re going to have to be quick about it. Only 51 are being made and they’ll retail for $42,500 above the base 2017 Mustang GT price – for a grand total of around $75,695 or more.
