While the special edition 2018 JackHammer is based on the Mustang GT, at its core lies a Roush TVS 2650 supercharger boosting power all the way up to a Hellcat-beating 710 horses.
Buying this kit will set you back $14,765, and on top of that, it’s available only for Fastback Mustangs, be it a 6-speed manual or a 10-speed automatic version. The JackHammer comes with multiple bespoke visual identifiers that sets it apart from Roush’s Stage 1 or Stage 2 Mustangs.
One such identifier is the hockey stripe decal, previously available only on Stage 3 Mustangs.
