Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes, the makers of Planet Color Custom Finishes, has teamed with Barrett-Jackson and ROUSH to introduce the Limited Edition 2010 and 2011 Barrett-Jackson ROUSH Ford Mustangs – soon to be available in very limited numbers.

Twenty-five units of these high-performance coupes will be built with special Barrett-Jackson approved touches, and each is customizable to the buyer’s request.

“The only thing faster than this muscular Barrett-Jackson ROUSH Mustang was its bidding across the auction block,” said Craig Jackson, chairman/CEO of Barrett-Jackson, as the first performance Mustang was completed and auctioned at Barrett-Jackson’s recent Las Vegas auto auction event. “With the R2300 ROUSHcharger, forged internal components and a resonator exhaust, this is one good-looking Mustang that really moves.”

The Barrett-Jackson ROUSH Mustang package starts with a special Planet Color Barrett-Jackson Collector Color Series paint. An array of 25 Barrett-Jackson color options will be available, allowing buyers to select both a unique exterior shade and a custom stripe package.

“Barrett-Jackson and ROUSH have elevated these Mustangs from performance symbols to performance legends,” said Steve Davis, president of Barrett-Jackson. “The special touches and the rich Planet Color paint scheme on these limited edition models will undoubtedly make them collectors’ items the day they roll out of ROUSH’s assembly facility.”

These mustangs include an extensive front, rear and side body kit, 20-inch chrome alloy wheels wrapped in high-performance Cooper RS3 tires and a lowered suspension.

According to motorsport legend Jack Roush, “The 2010 Barrett-Jackson ROUSH Mustang ties two leading automotive brands together in an amazing package combining performance and unique styling. People who drive a regular production model ROUSH Mustang are used to getting plenty of second looks, but with the custom Barrett-Jackson paint in the gorgeous colors, these owners will experience envy on an entirely new level.”

Starting with the R2300 performance V8, the cars feature custom intake manifolds, intercoolers and radiators, cold air induction, a thoroughly revised fuel system, an upgrade clutch and a lot more—enough to crank up the power to a rock-solid 540 hp and a stump-pulling 510 ft/lb of torque.

That’s a nearly 230 hp improvement over a stock Mustang GT. This will be a one-year-only engine, as the 2011 car will feature the new 5.0 Liter “Coyote” engine. Thus, each model year car will be truly unique from a drive train perspective.

ROUSH’s high performance shop also came up with a custom interior package, including leather and black suede, featuring a contrasting red Barrett-Jackson logo. The interior also gets an individually painted serial badge identifying the 1-25 sequence numbers. Under the hood, owners will find a serialized Barrett-Jackson badge not far from the ROUSH plaque signed by the actual engine builder.

“We wanted to give customers the opportunity to enjoy the collectability of a very limited edition series of performance cars but still be able to customize it,” added Davis. “By teaming with ROUSH and Sherwin-Williams, we have merged both to give serious enthusiasts literally the best of both worlds.”

“In developing the custom colors utilized on these limited ROUSH Performance  Mustangs, Barrett-Jackson provided us with valuable information on re-styled vehicle colors from today’s top custom-car restorers,” said Adam Chafe, Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes vice president, marketing. “Subsequently, the same vibrant colors, including Red Hot Chili Pepper, Cobalt Blue and Yellow Jacket, will now be available for all automotive enthusiasts in our Planet Color Barrett-Jackson Collector Color Series.”
