This Ford Mustang Jackhammer has 710bhp

Roush's whacking great supercharger takes the 'Stang past the Ferrari 488

This, girls and boys, is a 710bhp Ford Mustang. Doesn’t look like it, right? It looks subtle. Well, as subtle as Mustangs can feasibly get.

It’s called the Jackhammer, and it’s a product of Roush Performance, who’ve tuned all manner of Fords over the years. Including last decade’s Ford GT.

To the latest, facelifted Mustang, Roush has strapped a newly designed supercharger to the ‘Stang’s 5.0-litre V8. That lifts its outputs to 710bhp and 610lb ft, considerable rises over the standard 460bhp and 420lb ft.

You can only have it as a coupe, but you do have the choice of six-speed manual or ten-speed automatic gearboxes. You need the former.

While it’s relatively subtle compared to something like the Sutton CS800, there are still visual nods to the power beneath: Roush puts on ‘hockey stick’ side stripes which it doesn’t apply to its less powerful upgrades.

Other goodies include 20in wheels, height adjustable suspension and – helpfully – a five-year powertrain warranty. Roush is only making 200 Jackhammers, so you get rarity, too. A louder exhaust and even fancier suspension lies on the options list.

The cost? Prices start at $14,765 plus your base ‘Stang, so even with a few fancy options, you’re looking at around $55,000 all in. A Ferrari 488 GTB, which is 50bhp lighter, costs four times as much…
