The new Ford Mustang GT has only been on the market for a few months and Roush hasn’t wasted any time in introducing what it calls the 5XR Mustang tuning package for $15,390.

Much of that cost goes to the R2300 Roushcharger, taking horsepower to 525-hp (from the factory 412-hp) and torque to 465 ft-lbs. To amplify the stock V8 tone is a Roush exhaust system sporting square tips. Suspension upgrades are also included in the package, which includes new lowering springs and shocks. Wheels are also from Roush in a 20-inch sizing wrapped with Cooper’s RS3 tires.

For exterior modifications, a complete Roush body kit outfits the car, giving it a much more aggressive look to match its added performance. The kit includes a new front bumper, front splitter, side splitters, rear valence and three-piece spoiler. Graphics, badging and a new grille also add to the aesthetics.

Just 150 5XR kits will be made with Roush only selling packages to buyers who purchase a new Ford Mustang GT though an authorized Roush dealer.
