This Is the 2019 Roush Stage 3 Mustang Only One Man Will Drive

In the world of custom Mustangs, the name Roush has been on the list of heavyweights for more than two decades. The group’s experience in taking the Blue Oval’s muscle car to new performance levels has spawned over the years nameplates like the RS, Blackjack, or the ultra-powerful Stage 1, 2 and 3.

From time to time, the tuner is asked to create even more exclusive versions of its cars. As is the case with this variant of the 2019 Roush Stage 3 Mustang, built specifically and exclusively for Wade Kawasaki, the CEO of Legendary Companies and one of the big names in the aftermarket industry.

This particular Stage 3 was shown last week at the Monterey Car Week as a Mustang built to the customer’s specification, and paying tribute to the Ford GT40 racing car that stunned the world by winning Le Mans back in the 1960s.

As far as power is concerned, the Stage 3 builds on both Ford’s and Roush’s hardware: it packs a 5.-liter V8 engine amplified by Roush supercharger, cold air intake, and active exhaust system. With these add-ons, the car’s powerplant develops 710 horsepower and 610 foot-pounds of torque.

Visually, the Stage 3 is unique as well. The first thing that stands out is the use of the blue and orange Gulf Racing livery also deployed on the GT40. The car rides on exclusive 20x8.5-inch and 20x11-inch forged aluminum wheels, a reinterpreted version of the ones used on the famous race car.

Carbon fiber parts are to be seen all around: on the fiber side vents, side view mirrors, chin spoiler, and on the rear spoiler.

Matching the colors of the exterior, the interior of the Stage 3 has been fitted with the interior package in orange and a unique Roush plaque.

Roush did not say how much these extra modifications cost. For reference, the stock Stage 3 starts at $21,000 over the price of the base Mustang.
