2015 Roush Mustang Looks So Much More Aggressive

The 2015 Ford Mustang has been pretty universally praised for its good looks. But Roush has taken it to the next level and made the iconic pony car sexy in a sort of aggressive way.

As pictures from a photo shoot at Automobile demonstrate, this is the best body kit yet produced by Roush. It begs the question: why doesn’t Roush just design Mustangs to begin with?

OK, so maybe Roush can’t design an entire car. I have to give the Ford engineers some credit. The Roush team, though, has created a gorgeous front fascia and grille that extend the front end and sharpen the soft curves of the stock model. Roush has also added new hood vents and an optional hood scoop.

Automobile reports there are also new hood vents and an optional hood scoop, in addition to rear fender vents and a redesigned rear fascia and rear spoiler that make for a significantly cleaner appearance out back.

The good work continues on the custom Roush 20-inch cast wheels. They are slightly lighter than stock and are wrapped in Cooper RS3 tires for extra grip. The RS3 is an ultra high performance all-season tire within the Cooper performance family that is rated highly for both its wet and dry traction.

The report also says Roush will offer various levels of tuning kits, including RS, RS1, and RS2 for the new car. But given the 2015 Ford Mustang’s expanded engine lineup, the structure is a bit different.

 RS kits are for Mustang V-6 models; RS1 kits focus on the turbocharged Mustang EcoBoost; RS2 uses the naturally aspirated 5.0-liter V-8; and we can assume that, like with previous Roush Mustangs, RS3 adds a supercharger to the V-8 with various stages of power available.
