2023 Ford Mustang Roush P-51B Widebody Sped Undisguised In Silver

The sixth-generation Ford Mustang is almost over, but Roush isn’t done with the pony car. New spy photos capture the stunning Mustang with a bright silver finish and wide arch fenders. This is a new Roush model called the P-51B, and our spy team caught it completely in public with Jack Roush himself checking it all out.

We can confirm that this is actually the new Mustang Roush P-51. Look closely at the fenders and you’ll see a badge on the outline of the famous WWII P-51 fighter that inspired the car. The shape of the P-51 is also featured on the faux fuel cap on the back of the car, but if you’re still unsure, please take a look at the C exhibit on the quarter panel. Just behind the actual fuel cap, you’ll see P-51B clearly screened in bronze. Nothing is clearer than that with a spy photo.

What do we know about this fighter-themed Mustang? Badges, fender vents and wide wheel arches are clearly visible. Looks like the side spoon will replace the quarter glass behind the door window. New side sills connect the flared fenders, and a Mach 1-style chin spoiler stands out at the front. Our spy sources say it will only be available in Vapor (silver) with a Tuscany leather interior.

However, this shouldn’t be just an appearance enhancement. We can see what looks like a Roush-branded intercooler behind the front fascia. The previous P-51 model tuned by Roush featured a supercharged V8 engine, with the latest from a few years ago producing 727 horsepower. There’s no reason to believe this ground-based Mustang won’t pack at least as much firepower if not more. The Stage 3 Roush currently produces 750 hp, and the 2020 Mustang Jack Roush Edition produces 775 hp. Will the output for the P-51B be more than that?

Ford will debut the all-new seventh-generation Ford Mustang on September 14 at a major event ahead of the 2022 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. It’s unknown if the Roush P-51B will arrive before or after the event, but either way, the wait won’t be long.
