Jack Roush’s love for aviation and performance vehicles inspired the creation of the Roush P-51 Mustang, modeled after the agile and powerful P-51 Mustang airplane used by the United States during World War II to combat the German Luftwaffe.
The 2017 Roush P-51 package, built on the 2017 Ford Mustang GT, boasts an impressive 727 horsepower and 610lb-ft of torque – the highest ever for a Mustang road car from Roush – achieved through a Roush Phase 2 supercharger package, new throttle body, fuel system, high-performance quad outlet exhaust system, and engine tune.
Available with manual or automatic transmission, all 51 of these limited edition models come equipped with heavy-duty “TrakPak” half shafts to put the power to the ground via unique 19-inch Roush TrakPak wheels.
Live now on Bring A Trailer is a low mileage example of a 2017 Roush P-51 Mustang and is #29 of 51 units ever made.
Roush-designed, the P-51 package takes inspiration from the North American Aviation P-51 Mustang fighter planes of the 1940s. This particular model has an Ingot Silver Metallic finish with an Olive Drab hood, hand-painted badging, front grille ambient lighting, and fog lights. The aerodynamic body kit includes a high-flow upper grille, carbon-fiber front splitter and rear deck lid spoiler, revised side skirts, and hood, quarter panel, and rear quarter window scoops.
The car has black 19″ Weld wheels with Roush-logo center caps and 295/35 Continental ExtremeContact tires with 2016 date codes. The Roush TrakPak three-way adjustable coilover suspension and four-wheel discs with Brembo front calipers provide a smooth and powerful ride.
Inside the cabin, brown leather-trimmed, perforated front bucket seats extend to the rear seating surfaces and door panels. The black dashboard has satin-finished carbon-look trim, push-button ignition, dual-zone automatic climate control, a Shaker Pro audio system, SYNC with MyFord Touch, and Ford Track Apps.
The P-51 package includes a numbered dash plaque identifying the car as serial number 17.0029.P51., exhaust mode selector, P-51 embroidery in the backrests, and Roush-branded red shift knob, door sills, and floor mats. The digital odometer shows 1,400 miles.
The 5.0-liter Coyote V8 has a 2.3-liter TVS supercharger that boosts output to 727 horsepower, according to Roush Performance. The package also includes Roush-branded ignition coil covers and hood support struts.
The car has a six-speed manual transmission, extreme-duty half shafts, and a Torsen limited-slip differential with a 3.73:1 axle ratio. The Roush active performance exhaust system with quad outlets and H-pipes replaces the resonator, ensuring the car roars with power.
