Ford Mustang owners have their fair share of aftermarket parts makers and tuners to choose from, as well as entire, turnkey cars sporting both styling and performance upgrades. Among them, the Mustang GT Roush Jackhammer has to be one of the coolest. Unfortunately for some, the Jackhammer isn’t exactly what most would call cheap, adding at least $14k to the price of the donor car. But this 2018 Ford Mustang GT Roush Jackhammer up for grabs at Cars & Bids might just wind up representing a pretty big bargain.
Sitting with a high bid of $16,500 with 6 days to go (as of this writing), this Roush Jackhammer also has just 5,800 miles on the clock. As such, it’s pretty much brand new, barely broken in, and ready to provide many miles of tire-smoking enjoyment for its future owner. It’s also finished in Shadow Black on Ebony Black, which gives it an appropriately sinister appearance.
Unlike many other tuner Mustangs out there these days, the Jackhammer is available with a six-speed manual transmission, which this car has. The row-your-own gearbox sits behind Ford’s 5.0L Coyote V8, which in this case has been treated to a Roush TVS R2650 Phase 1 supercharger kit, which bumps output up to 710 horsepower and 620 pound-feet of torque.
That power flows back to a Torsen limited-slip rear differential fitted with 3.73 gears for what promises to be brisk acceleration, all while the owner enjoys the comfort of a leather interior and all the latest technology SYNC 3 has to offer. We imagine it sounds the business as well, thanks to a Roush Performance exhaust, and a set of extreme-duty Trakpak half shafts provides a little extra peace of mind when the car is launched from a dig.
In addition to a full Roush Jackhammer body kit and graphics, this sweet Mustang also rides on adjustable coilovers and 20-inch Black Jack wheels, while a host of Roush badges inside and outside the car let the world know that it’s something special. The only question left to ask is – just how much is someone willing to pay for this tasty package?
