Motorcycles 2018 Roush JackHammer Mustang Packs A 710-HP Punch To The Gut
2021 Mercedes-AMG GLE53 Coupe packs mild-hybrid punch
A little electricity goes a long way.
Roush will build only 200 examples.
Order forms are now open for the 2018 Roush JackHammer. While the name is, uh, interesting, the performance under the hood is a no-nonsense affair. Roush, the aftermarket tuning company known for jacking up the power of Ford Mustang coupes and convertibles for two decades, has named its latest limited-edition pony car after the company’s founder, Jack Roush.
Roush adds an assortment of goodies to the Mustang. Most notable is the Roush R2650 supercharger that takes the 5.0-liter V8 engine’s output from 460 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque up to 710 hp and 610 lb-ft of torque. Customers can opt for either the six-speed manual or 10-speed automatic; however, the package is only available on the Mustang GT coupe. Underneath the Mustang, Roush adds an adjustable coilover suspension. Continental ExtremeContact Sport tires wrap around gloss-black wheels – the only Roush Mustang to have such wheels.
This 1968 Ford Mustang GT/CS Is One Sweet Pony
A fully restored example with just 30,000 miles on the clock Mosing Motorcars is happy to offer the opportunity to call this beautiful 1968 Ford Mustang GT/CS California Special you own. Just 3,200 of these special edition Mustangs were produced, and this one was given a complete ground-up restoration. In the 51 years this car has been around, less than 32,000 miles have been clocked on the odometer. A 289cui V8 under the hood powers the beast and shifts via a C4 Cruise-O-Matic transmission down to the 2.79 conventional rear axle.
“The JackHammer is a great option for enthusiasts who want a thrilling driving experience in a Mustang that looks menacing and produces incredible power,” said Jack Roush, Jr., professional race car driver and advanced business strategist for Roush Performance. “What makes this model unique is that before the vehicle leaves our headquarters, we install all the necessary components and machine the front engine cover to make it easy to add our R2650 supercharger package.”
Aside from the performance enhancements, Roush adds several visual updates to let the local car meet regulars know this isn’t your standard Mustang. Upgrades include a new lower grille and chin spoiler, inserts under the turn signals, added slats to the grille vents, a scoop on the rear side windows, and the iconic hockey stick tripe along the side.
2019 Roush Mustang Stage 3 First Drive Review | Everything is better with a blower
Roush's hottest Mustang is fast, refined and expensive.In 1975, when Jack Roush was a championship-winning Pro Stock drag racer, he built Ruggirello the meanest street Mustang in America, a little Mustang II with a monster 505-cubic-inch big block and other Pro Stock spec components. Nicknamed "Sudden Death" by Hot Rod Magazine, the silver hatchback with massive 13-inch-wide Firestone slicks was good for 10-second quarter-mile times. It had already become a legend by the time Brock Yates featured the Ford in a 1976 issue of Car and Driver.
Roush offers a five-year/60,000-warranty on the vehicle, which includes the dealer-installed supercharger system. You cannow on Roush’s website. The cost for package starts at $14,795, which is on top of the price of the base car. You can order yours now, but Roush will only produce 200 examples of the vehicle.
