A Roush 402 cubic inch engine built for the Shelby Daytona Coupe

Roush Performance is an automotive company owned and operated by automotive mogul Jack Roush. It was formed in 1995 by Roush to provide engineering from racing to street cars.

Roush produces performance parts for Ford cars and trucks, and has built fully modified versions and tuning kits, such as the Roush GT600 RE (based on the Ford GT, but with 600bhp and other modifications), various Mustangs, and an F-150 pickup powered by propane. These special model vehicles are sold to the public through independent dealerships, typically those carrying a Ford brand name of some kind. The last 10 European Ford GT have been modified by Roush Europe. The 720 Mirage. 720+ bhp, 627 lb-ft of torque and 220+mph.

Roush also modified 10 Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptors for the Bondurant High Performance Driving School, for use as instructor's cars back when Ford was their main supplier. These specialty cars were modified to use the Mustang Cobra 320bhp DOHC engine and 5-speed manual transmission, among other things. The driveshafts were custom made, the interior used an SVT Contour console for the shifter and a Mustang Cobra instrument cluster, the final drive was switched to 3.73, and the suspension was specially modified. A custom Borla exhaust with no emissions restrictions was put in. The wheels used on these cars were 1995 Mustang Cobra R wheels, and they were equipped with a full roll cage, a HALON fire suppression system, and a special racing fuel cell.

In 2007, 2008, and 2009 Roush Performance made only 100 Stage 3 Mustang Blackjack's. These cars have 430 horsepower and have a hand built engine. The interior dash is signed by Jack Roush himself.

[1] The company is also well respected for its engine making, and provide custom built engines for cars like the Superformance Shelby Daytona Coupe or Brock Coupe as it's also known.

The company has served occasionally as a part-time sponsor for Roush's Craftsman Truck Series teams.
