Jack Roush has been around Ford vehicles for decades, turning vehicles like the Mustang and F-150 into more extreme and competitive version of themselves. In fact, we’ve had a Roush Performance Stage 3 Mustang at our headquarters for some time, and I can easily say it’s the most fun I’ve ever had in a Mustang, let alone a “pony car.”
That being said, Jack Roush was undoubtedly a shoe-in when it came to being approved for a new Ford GT. While he has surely waited some time for his new American supercar, he finally took delivery of it on June 1. Jack Roush’s example of the Ford GT is #15, and is finished in what looks like Liquid Grey with Ingot Silver stripes going down the center.
Could Roush Performance take the new Ford GT and turn it into an even more powerful car? We’ll just have to wait and see. According to Ford, the new American supercar has 647 hp and 550 lb-ft of torque on tap, thanks its 3.5-liter V6 EcoBoost engine, and has a top speed of 216 mph. If Roush took some tuning these numbers, we could possibly see the GT turn into a true hypercar.
