The 2005 Roush Mustang features power,
styling and handling capabilities that are at the core of Jack Roush’s
automotive performance values.
“The design direction of the stock
2005 Mustang GT couldn’t have been any better for our application. Our
design theme, since we created the first Roush Mustang, was connected to
my traditional design preferences,” said Jack Roush.
The new 2005 Roush Mustang follows a
traditional design blueprint that is prevalent in all Roush Mustangs.
With a new front bumper and a lower chin spoiler and splitter, the front
end design of the new Roush Mustang is well connected to its racing
heritage. Roush has created multiple options for the buyer on the
functionality of the front fascia openings.
To complete the front-end design,
Roush added a hood scoop that was reminiscent of his days as a driver.
“I pulled the hood scoop from my
collection of old Mustang hoods. I pulled one (hood) that I had stored
away from a ’69 Mustang. I sat it next to the clay model as a constant
reminder of what my favorite Mustang scoop looked like,” said Roush.
Lowered by 1-inch in the front and ½-inch in the rear, the new Roush
Mustang has an aggressive stance on its newly designed 18-inch chrome
wheels and performance tires.
Roush designed a side rocker molding
to complete the lower design theme. Although a visual trademark of the
Roush Mustang for years, the side exhaust option will not be available due
to package envelop constraints.
“There were only a couple of inches of
clearance for us to work with on the rocker panels. Instead of risking the
design with functionality issues, we decided to enhance the rear bumper
treatments,” said Roush, “You’ll see that our design team has made it
From the standpoint of true Mustang tradition, the fastback rear design
treatment from the factory plays more favorably into the Roush design
theme than any other Mustang aftermarket designer.
For the Mustang’s rear design
treatment, Roush adds: an aggressive rear wing, a nostalgic quarter window
scoop, a rear bumper treatment with the Roush brand name embossed between
the custom exhaust tips.
“The attention we gave to the rear
styling of the Roush Mustang was significant. We’re very proud of the
results. The visual impact of a lowered aggressive stance that grips the
road with larger aggressive tires and unique exhaust tips will appeal to
all American Muscle Car Enthusiasts,” said Joe Thompson, General Manager
of Roush Performance.
