Roush has previously offered 3 different stages to suit your budget and taste. For 2010, the racing pedigree will offer a Stage 4 for the first time, featuring four freaking fast solid rocket boosters.
Using smaller versions of the boosters on the Space Shuttles, the Roush Stage 4 has 22,000,000 horsepower. It does 0-60 in 10 seconds due to the weight, but has a top speed of 3,000 mph. It can easily reach escape velocity to leave the atmosphere.
The “lesser” stages feature the following (from Roush.com):
The 2010 Stage 1™ includes an appearance package which is comprised of several components such as a new front fascia and front splitter, rear fascia, side splitters, and a three-piece rear wing. Cost = $5,952
The ROUSH 2010 Stage 2™ includes an appearance package and suspension upgrades. Mustang comes with an all-new suspension package to greatly enhance the handling of the vehicle and turn that daily commute into a slalom course. The ROUSH chassis engineering team has driven tens of thousands of miles on the streets and tracks to create the best blend of comfort and handling, and claim that this is the best suspension package they have come up with yet for the Mustang. A ROUSH wheel hop reduction kit will be included with all vehicles that have the upgraded ROUSH suspension package installed at the factory. Cost = $7,326
The 2010 ROUSH® Stage 3™ is a collectible performance powerhouse. It once again takes its rightful place atop the hierarchy of Jack Roush’s lineup. This vehicle packs a punch with 540hp and 510 lb-ft and is fully-loaded with the ROUSH® body components; resonator exhaust; four-piston front brakes with 14-inch rotors and painted rear calipers with slotted rotors; and the new upper billet grille which removes the fog lamps and streamlines the appearance of the new Mustang while improving cooling performance. Interior enhancements include ROUSH® leather seats with an embroidered Jack Roush signature; four-piece performance pedals; ROUSH® illuminated sill plates; short throw shifter with black or white ball; and a new interior Stage 3™ badge with the car’s serial number engraved.
The 2010 ROUSH® Stage 3™ Mustang rides on 18-inch chrome wheels with high-performance Cooper RS3 tires; 20-inch chrome wheels with Cooper RS3 tires are one of the few options available on this model. The suspension package includes ROUSH® front struts, rear shocks, front and rear springs, front and rear stabilizer bars and jounce bumpers.
“The ROUSH® Stage 3™ Mustang has traditionally been among the halo vehicles of our lineup and I’m really proud that it sits atop the pecking order once again,” said Jack Roush. “This new iteration of the Stage 3™ represents our highest horsepower and most sophisticated ROUSH® Mustang yet, and is sure to resonate among our fans.”
The 2010 ROUSH® Stage 3™ Mustang will have a limited production run of only 103 vehicles and costs $28,200.
