Roush Performance one ups the Dodge Hellcat with the Jackhammer Mustang
It looks like Roush Performance has just beat Shelby in making a Mustang that can rival the mighty Dodge Hellcat. Draped in red and black is the Roush Jackhammer, a supercharged stallion that produces well over 700 PS and nearly 830 Nm of torque.
Based off the V8-powered Mustang GT, Roush worked their magic on the pony car by installing an assortment of engine upgrades. But perhaps the most important upgrade put on the Jackhammer is the Roush TVS 2650 Supercharger. With it, this souped-up Mustang now cranks out nearly 720 PS and 829 Nm of pulling power. It's both available with either a six-speed manual or ten-speed automatic transmission.
“We engineer American-made vehicles with the raw power, looks and legacy that passionate drivers crave, and with this car named after my father, we made sure not to hold back,” said Jack Roush Jr., Advanced Business Strategist at Roush Performance.
Besides the supercharger upgrade, the Jackhammer also gets an improved cooling system, heavy-duty half-shafts, adjustable coilover suspension, strut tower brace and 20-inch Ebony Black alloy wheels wrapped in Continental ExtremeContact Sport tires.
The exterior of the Jackhammer was also given attention and gets Roush's signature hockey stripes along the side. Both the front and rear get a more aerodynamic bumper while the hood itself comes with Roush heat extractors. Topping it all off are the gloss black trunk spoiler, side air scoops and the Roush badging at the back.
Only 200 examples of the Roush Jackhammer will be made.
