Roush Barrett-Jackson Ford Mustang – Click above to enlarge

Two years ago, Shelby produced a special edition Mustang for Barrett-Jackson in the auction house's trademark black and red colors. This year, the auctioneers are back in the special edition Mustang game, this time with Roush Performance. That means a 540-horsepower, 510 pound-feet Roushcharged Mustang riding on a Roush-tuned suspension and 20-inch chrome wheels.

The car pictured is doused in two hues from the Planet Color Barrett-Jackson Collector Color Series paints: Back in Black with a Red Hot Chili Pepper stripe. There will be 25 examples made from the 2010 'Stang, and another 25 available as a 2011 model, and customers can order them in any of the 25 special colors in the collection.

The coupe will be auctioned with no reserve at Barrett-Jackson's Collector Car Auction in Palm Beach, Florida on Saturday, April 3. For those of you keen to know more, check out the press release after the jump.

ROUSH and Barrett-Jackson to Offer Limited Edition Mustang with Custom Paint and Monster Horsepower

LIVONIA, Mich. – ROUSH Performance® and Barrett-Jackson have teamed together to offer a limited edition, high-performance version of the Ford Mustang. The concept car for the Barrett-Jackson Edition ROUSH Mustang will be sold at No Reserve during the 8th Annual Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction in Palm Beach on April 1-3, 2010, at the Americraft Expo Center at the South Florida Fairgrounds.

"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."

The concept vehicle will be auctioned to the highest bidder on Saturday, April 3 at the Barrett-Jackson event in Palm Beach, Fla.; the car is expected to be shown live during the SPEED broadcast. This Mustang will be painted with a base of metallic "Back in Black" with "Red Hot Chili Pepper" stripes on the front. This car will be the model for a run of up to 25 units based on the 2010 Mustang, and an additional 25 units on the 2011 chassis.

"The only thing faster than this muscular ROUSH Mustang concept set to go across the auction block will be the bidding," said Craig Jackson, Chairman/CEO of Barrett-Jackson. "With the ROUSHcharger, forged internal components and a resonator exhaust, this is one good looking Mustang that really moves."

With a maximum of 25 serialized units built on the 2010 chassis, this car represents the first time that ROUSH will completely re-paint a Mustang from front fascia to rear bumper. Customers ordering the car, or the ROUSH authorized Ford dealerships that inventory a unit, can 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.

"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."

In addition to the custom paint schemes, the 2010 Barrett-Jackson Edition ROUSH Mustang will sport 540 horsepower and 510 lb.-ft. of torque under the hood thanks to the R2300 ROUSHcharger® and several forged internal components such as the pistons and crankshaft. The Mustang will ride on 20-inch chrome wheels with high-performance Cooper RS3 tires; the suspension package includes ROUSH front struts, rear shocks, front and rear springs, front and rear stabilizer bars and jounce bumpers to turn any commute into a slalom course.

It comes fully-loaded with ROUSH body components to add to its appearance; resonator exhaust for a deep V-8 rumble; four-piston front brakes with 14-inch rotors and painted rear calipers with slotted rotors; and new upper and lower billet grille that removes the fog lamps and streamlines the appearance of the new Mustang while improving cooling performance. Interior enhancements include 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 a new interior badge with the serial number engraved.

The suggested retail for the 2010 Barrett-Jackson Edition ROUSH Mustang package is $41,495 plus the Mustang chassis. Each vehicle will be covered with the traditional ROUSH 3-year/36,000 mile warranty, and are available in manual transmission only.

      Soo.. It is a regular Roush with instead of blank stripes, they say Barett Jackson. Probably has a custom plaque in there too somewhere.

      Effort = Epic Fail

      • 5 Years Ago
      Think of all the flash that's wasted on that car. It's an ok car, I'm not gonna lie, but really, 25 different example models?
      • 5 Years Ago
      Pretty sweet looking
      • 5 Years Ago
      Obviously nothing more than a PR move for Roush as the only people buying one will be the executives of BJ and the one drunk rich guy who just wants TV time.
      • 5 Years Ago
      Anyone else think it looks like they took teh Camaro SS bumper and through it on the Mustang
        • 5 Years Ago
        Don't forget the corvette rims
      • 5 Years Ago
      Expensive, yes. But will it sell? definitely. That's all that matters in the eyes of Roush. But to some extent some would say worth every penny. Its a high performance car with loads of power and a Roush tuned suspension makes for a potent street/strip/track car, all with a warranty to boot.

      Personally, I like it. Its got a bit of Boss 302 styling thrown in the mix, with the window louvers, albeit in the wrong window, and the side hockey stripe. The wheels are a bit...standard, and unoriginal, but over the top doesn't work well for many, especially at Barrett.

      However, the stock 2011 Mustang GT is all I could I ever need, thus I'll pass on this at the auction.

      The way a Mustang should look, without all the unpainted tacky plastic! Unless that plastic is hiding on the sides, and of course no back shot. I do not understand why they do not paint it, they did on the previous generation. It keeps me from wanting one. Even Ford tries to hide it in their own pictures!
        • 5 Years Ago
        Yes the plastic is the only thing I don't like about the new Mustang. It almost makes it look like a downgrade compared to the 2005-2009 model. This Mustang is one of the best looking Mustangs I've ever seen, I wish all the GT's looked like this.

      My wife will love it. And for those of you who think Ford didn't play a part in the negotiations to bailout GM and Chrysler; Ford wanted the bailout because the suppliers of parts would have gone out of business and so the auto manufacturers in the US, Ford, Toyota,and the rest would have been screwed because they are not vertically integrated anymore, but rely on outsourcing for their production from common sources. It is similar to the to big to fail banks that become to big and would cause a melt down to the economy if one fails. Monopolization by banks, industry and the retail industry, Wall Mart, is the cause and would be remedied by enforcing the antitrust laws that used to be enforced until Reagan stopped in the 80's and has been ignored since. Monopolies are not good for this country becasue it stops innovation, competition, and jobs growth which has been flat since the late 90's.
        • 5 Years Ago
        Ford mortgaged it's assets and said it didn't need the bailout.

        Ford simply didn't need the government's help like GM and Chrysler did...
        • 5 Years Ago
        Yes, but they would have gone out of business without suppliers. You state the obvious, I'm telling you something you didn't know or refuse to admit. Monopolies are stopping innovation and new jobs. Read the book Cornered.
      • 5 Years Ago
      That is one great looking car.
      • 5 Years Ago
      It's too expensive. It's around $80-$85,000 as that figure of $41,500 is for the conversion, and does not include the base car.
      When you load up the base car with comfort & convenience features, A/C P/W Pwr. Seat super-duper stereo and all the rest, you're in the mid-80's. For that kinda dough, I'd buy a Jaguar XK-R Coupe, and leave behind the overdone decals.
      A Cadillac CTS-V as about the same H.P. as this Mustang and is probably lighter in weight, and at the end of the day, you're driving a Cadillac, not a Ford.
      • 5 Years Ago
      The good thing is the moneys will go to help children I do agree YES it just another Mustang That could be ordered at any Ford Dealership There is a few of them left isn t there ????
      • 5 Years Ago
      Every time somebody bolts something on a Mustang, somehow, it becomes a news item, no matter how amateurish or idiotic the mod is.

      I'm not saying this applies to Roush, although..., but one needs to stop a q-tip when there's resistance, doesn't one. Autoblog got little bit over-Mustangized in the past few days.
