Updated on

Caroll Shelby and Jack Roush, some of the best known tuning experts around came together to create a masterpiece neither one could do alone in the Ford Mustang SR-71. This car will be up for sale and auctioned for charity. This insane ride came to be after inspiration by the Lockheed Martin SR-71 Blackbird with “SR” standing for nothing less than Shelby and Roush. As far as performance modifications, the Roush & Shelby Mustang SR-71 comes with a 5.0L Ti-VCT V8 engine complemented by a 2.3L Whipple Twin Screw Supercharger and a Roush intake. These tuning experts also updated their SR-71 with a new exhaust from Ford Racing, a new handling pack, and reinforced roll cage. We are all waiting anxiously for the release of these Ford Mustang performance figures.

The exterior speaks for itself. This beast was fitted with 20-inch wheels in rear with 19-inch rims up front. The Shelby and Roush team added a custom glass roof surrounded by a matte gray finish with unique accents and graphics. As for the interior, these engineering experts upgraded the navigation, put in new custom design floor mats, a new steering wheel, and instrument cluster from Ford Racing. To top it off, Recaro race seats signed by Jack Roush and Caroll Shelby were installed to create a one of a kind unique ride called the Roush and Shelby Ford Mustang SR-71. This vehicle will be auctioned off on July 29th to support the Young Eagles program of the Experimental Aircraft Association.
