I’m excited to finally draw the curtain on my Roush Performance Inspired 2015 Mustang GT. My first car was a 2011 Scion tC slammed on Vossen CV3. I loved it until I saw the photos of the 2015 Mustang, in December of 2013, and I set my goal. In October 2014 I picked up one of the very first 2015 GT’s in South Florida and traded in my 2011 Scion tC. It was a dream come true.  I’m glad to share this build with everyone and to be working with Roush Performance to get this build started.

The 2015 Mustang GT is overall one of my favorite cars of 2015. The redesign of the Mustang definitely caught my attention and I fell in love with the car—but it just wasn’t enough after Roush Performance stepped in the spotlight with their 2015 Mustang full Aero kit. Roush has been one of the top notch aftermarket companies in the Mustang scene since the company came about in 1995. I’ve been a big fan of Roush and the competition they bring to the table with Justin Pawlak Racing the Roush Mustang in Formula Drift.

When it came to modifying my car, I installed the Roush Performance full Aero Kit, including the front fascia, hood scoop, hood vents, side skirt winglets, side scoops, rear quad diffuser, rear spoiler, and to top it all of the ROUSH rear deck lid panel. One of my favorite aspects about the Mustang is the 5.0L Coyote motor, that was brought back with the 2011 S197 Mustang. It was a must to install Roush’s quad tip exhaust and it really brings the coyote motor to life!

The modification that brought this build to life was definitely the wheels. The Vossen Forged: Precision Series VPS-302s were definitely the perfect fit for this car, given the classic 5-spoke design. The VPS-302s measure 20×10 with a 275/30/20 up front and 20×11 with a 305/30/20 in the rear, wrapped in Toyo T1R tires. The 5-spoke design has definitely been a top favorite in the American muscle car scene and our split design just set it over the top. The Brushed Smoke tinted clear is an awesome finish with the black and the details with the brushed marks in the wheels definitely flow with the aggressive look of the car.

This build has just begun and I’m really excited to see what’s in store for the future. It’s an awesome experience to have companies like Roush Performance and Toyo Tires incorporated in this build and I can’t wait for the next step!
