2010 Roush Mustang Barrett-Jackson Edition Mustang



Taking a more active partnership with Barrett-Jackson, Roush will be offering a new limited edition Mustang to commemorate their alliance. The 2010 Barrett-Jackson Edition Roush Mustang will be built in small numbers up to 25 units. Additionally, Roush says that there will be 25 more built on the 2011 Mustang chassis.

The concept version of the new 2010 Barrett-Jackson Edition Roush Mustang will be auctioned off at the upcoming Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach Collector Car Auction on Saturday April 3rd. The special edition concept to be auctioned will be based on the Roush Stage 3 Mustang, coming in a custom metallic “Back in Black” paint job with painted “Red Hot Chili Pepper” striping.

“The 2010 Barrett-Jackson Edition Roush Mustang ties two leading automotive brands together in an amazing package combining performance and unique styling,” said Jack Roush. “People who drive a regular production ROUSH Mustang are used to getting plenty of second looks. But with the custom Barrett-Jackson paint in such gorgeous colors, these owners will experience envy on an entirely new level.”

Roush says that this will be the first car they have ever offered in which they have repainted the car. Customers will be able to custom order both the base coat and the side stripes in any combination from the 25 available smoking hot Planet Color Barrett-Jackson Collector Color Series paints. That is pretty exclusive indeed.

“We wanted to give customers the opportunity to enjoy the collectability of a very limited edition series of performance cars but still be able to customize it,” noted Steve Davis, president of Barrett-Jackson. “By teaming with ROUSH and Planet Color, we merged the two, giving enthusiasts literally the best of both worlds.”

The 2010 Barrett-Jackson Edition ROUSH Mustang will feature the TVS supercharged, forged internal 4.6 liter V8 with 540 horsepower. There will be chrome 20-inch wheels wrapped with Roush exclusive Cooper RS3 tires too. Underneath the car comes loaded with a full Roush suspension, brake, and exhaust package

Appearance extras include a full Roush body package, upper and lower billet grilles, leather seats with an embroidered Barrett-Jackson logo, four-piece performance pedals, ROUSH illuminated sill plates, short throw shifter with black or white ball, and interior badge with the serial number engraved.

The price reflects top of the line packaging and custom paint at $41,495 plus a Mustang GT. That puts you somewhere around $72,000-$75,000.
