435 horsepower is a hefty figure. Pair that with two-doors, rear-wheel drive, and a manual gearbox, and you have yourself a recipe for fun. But apparently not enough fun for the folks at Roush, who unleashed their 670-horsepower Stage 3 monster Mustang unto the world in 2016.
 
A year later, and the performance train is still chugging full steam with the introduction of the 2017 Roush Stage 3 Mustang. Everything about the 2017 model is pretty much the same—but that’s more than ok.

The standard 5.0-liter V8 is fitted with a 2.3-liter Eaton TVS supercharger, bumping the factory horsepower from 435 to 670, and torque from 400 lb-ft to 525 lb-ft. In case you needed reminding, that’s a serious upgrade over Ford’s top-of-the-line Shelby Mustang GT350 (526 horsepower vs 670; 429 lb-ft torque vs 525).
 
It’s not just pure power, though, that makes this Roush Mustang even more desirable than anything from the factory. An aggressive new look, and an active exhaust system are part of the package, while a three-way adjustable coilover suspension tuned by World Challenge professional driver Jack Roush Jr. is optional (and probably necessary).

For what it’s worth, you’re getting a lot of Mustang. And here’s what it’s worth: $22,590, not including the price of the Ford Mustang GT (base: $32,645). As pricey as it may be, it does come with a 3-year/36,000 mile warranty, and can be serviced at any of the Roush certified dealers across the world.
