Roush solo ofrecerá 60 unidades en EEUU, y 10 más para el resto del mundo.

Hace casi un mes Roush nos habló de sus planes de producir el Mustang más potente de su historia. Y ahora lo tenemos frente a nosotros, el Jack Roush Edition Mustang 2020 de Roush Performance, una máquina de respeto. No solo es lo más potente que ofrece Roush en este momento, sino que con 775 caballos de fuerza, supera incluso al Shelby GT500.

Mientras que el Shelby usa un V8 de 5.2 litros, Roush conserva el 5.0 del Mustang GT, pero trabajándolo por todos lados. Entre otros elementos, instalaron el supercargador Fase 3 R2650 Eaton de Roush, junto a un sistema de escape activo de Roush con tubos en forma de H, cuatro configuraciones de sonido y mejoras en el sistema de enfriamiento, además de transmisión y diferencial. Con 775 hp y 670 libras-pie de torque, el Roush supera al Shelby en ambas áreas.

La edición Jack Roush no solo se trata de más potencia. Su suspensión MagneRide calibrada especialmente para el modelo, hace uso de unos resortes más bajos y frenos Brembo. La carrocería recibe un paquete aerodinámico R9 Aero, una diferente apertura para la parrilla inferior, un alerón frontal inferior, entradas de aire en los laterales delanteros, extractores de calor en el capó, un difusor trasero y un panel negro con el letrero ROUSH en el maletero, sobre el que descansa un alerón de fibra de carbono, el cual también tiene capacidad aerodinámica activa. Un juego de vistosos rines y un interior decorado en cuero con insignias de Roush completan el paquete.

Para quienes quiera a su Jack Roush Edition Mustang a la pista, hay un paquete opcional llamado Competiiton que incluye rines livianos, llantas exclusivas de pista, un Jack Pack, con una montura para rines y neumáticos y una caja de herramientas llena de elementos desconocidos que presumiblemente harán mejor tu experiencia en pista.

Roush solo construirá 60 unidades delJack Roush Edition Mustang 2020 para Estados Unidos, y 10 más para mercados internacionales. Creemos que la gran mayoría de los compradores destinarán sus unidades para paseos de fin de semana y  a engordar sus colecciones. Creemos que el precio superará al del GT500, aunque Roush no lo especifica.
