Roush To Increase Production Of P-51A Mustang

Written by tonks on December 19, 2007

Roush P-51A MustangRoush’s P-51A Mustang is getting so much attention that they are thinking about making more than just the 100 vehicles. Orders have not yet begun (they will in January) but Roush is expecting to get more than what was made. It looks like everyone wants to get at Roush’s fastest car.

Joe Thompson, general manager of Roush Performance announced that production would be increased from 100, to 151 cars. “Certainly we anticipated that the ROUSH P-51A Mustang would be a popular car and sell quickly to our dealer base – but I must say that we were a little surprised at just how fast the demand grew for this car so we worked with our suppliers to make ensure that an increased volume would be possible and can now announce that there will be 151 vehicles produced next year.”

While pricing hasn’t even been announced yet, expect an MSRP of just over $65,000. That gets you Roush’s latest supercharger, forged internal engine components, a custom lower and upper intake manifold, a custom fuel rail and high flow injectors, upgraded duel throttle body, and a high-capacity intercooler good for at least 510 horsepower. The P-51A also gets a Roush body kit, 14-inch brakes, upgraded interior, 18-inch wheels and tires, and a paint scheme inspired by the 357th Fighters Group that was legendary in WWII.

Good Morning,
I flew 35 combat mission in a B-17G over Germany during World War II. The P-51 Mustangs literally saved our lives, while flying escort for us on our bombing raids. To name a great car the P-51A Mustang is a real tribute to a “flying legend”.
Respectfully yours,
