Roush Performance: RST Stage 1 Military Style Mustang
It’s that time of year that everyone in the automotive industry looks forward to – the SEMA show in Las Vegas. The place is packed full of enthusiasts along with some of the coolest builds you will ever come across. This show is the reason half of these builds are brought to life in the first place. As soon as the SEMA show is over, it’s time to start building something bigger and better for the following year.
When browsing the Las Vegas Convention Center, one of the places you don’t want to miss is Roush Performance; the folks at Roush always have something incredible to showcase and this year proved to be no exception.
Check out the 2016 Roush Stage 1 (RST) Mustang that’s capable of 511 horsepower and 465 lb-ft of torque. The Roush goodies installed on this EcoBoost include a turbocharger upgrade kit, a quad-tip exhaust system, triple adjustable coilovers, an EcoBoost cold air intake, and a Roush Perfromance R7 Aero body kit. Stopping power comes from Brembo brakes with four pistons in the rear and six pistons in the front.
The exterior also features aggressive concave Vossen 20-inch forged VPS-308 wheels wrapped with Pirelli P-Zero rubber, a custom 3M matte Military Green wrap, and Dynamikillusions LED headlights, including the beautiful Roush Recaro leather seats.
“The main point of this car is to get involved in the turbo market,” explains Nick Schaffer from Roush Performance. “Historically, Roush is a supercharger company so the turbo market will help expand our forced induction offerings.”
Roush takes pride in the military and thought that this would be a nice tribute to the troops with the color scheme. “We do have quite a few guys that work at Roush that are veterans. Roush Jr. designed it with the help of their veteran employees."
