Packing 540-hp and 465 lb-ft of torque, Roush’s RS3 Hyper-Series Mustang features a 50-state legal TVS 2.3L Roushcharger, Roush-calibrated suspension, and a Roush-tuned exhaust system. The limited edition RS3 Mustang has been named the Hyper-Series, and Roush makes Ford‘s top sports car a true performance enthusiast’s dream.
The Roush Stage 3 Mustang’s performance will be paired up one of four available Hyper-Series limited edition appearance packages. The appearance package outfits the RS3 Mustang with unique graphics and interior color combinations. The exterior base paint will be black on all four packages but will have four color options to accent it: “Mat it Mango”, “Gas It Green”, “Punch It Purple” and “Launch It Lemon”. Roush will only produce a limited quantity of 25 for each color option and of course, each will be numbered and labeled appropriately.
Your exterior color choice will also transfer to the interior as suede on the door panels, leather seating and shift boot stitching. Roush will also give each RS3 Hyper-Series owner two shifter balls that can be easily swapped out by the driver depending on their mood.
Last but not least, each vehicle will also feature a suede-wrapped steering wheel and each owner will get Roush apparel and display items to commemorate the purchase of their new Mustang. Each Hyper-Series RS3 comes with a 3-year/36,000-mile warranty and is only available with a six-speed transmission.

Ford and Roush go together like peanut butter and jelly. You can have one without another, but it’s just not the same. Ford’s new 2011 Mustang 5.0 has already been getting tons of acclaim and now Roush will be taking it to a whole new level in performance. For a retail price of $5,999.00, your 2011 Mustang can have upwards of 550-hp and 470 ft-lbs of torque!
The Roushcharger Tuner Kit (part # 421140) is based on the popular TVS2300 Roushcharger and comes with a 90mm pulley that puts out approximate seven pounds of boost. To ensure the forced inducted 5.0L stays healthy, 47 lb fuel injectors, high-flow fuel rails, high-flow Roush air land and a twin 60mm throttle body are also included in the kit.
And those wondering about reliability and warranty, Roush offers a 90-day parts warranty but notes that it will not maintain the factory Ford warranty. Those willing to wait until fall, Roush will be releasing a kit that will come with full tuning and warranty.
Official press release available after the break.
The Roush Shelby Mustang SR-71 has finally been officially revealed, and the car looks, well, just like the concept renderings we brought you not long ago. With a supercharged 5.0L V8, full Recaro bucket seats, a custom paint job and a Ford Racing handling pack, this one-off Mustang is like nothing else ever produced. The vehicle will be auctioned off for charity Thursday, July 29th at 7:30 PM (Central Time) at the EAA Museum in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. All proceeds benefit EAA’s (Experimental Aircraft Association) Young Eagles program, a foundation that Ford has supported for the past 15 years.

ROUSH is the first to market with a complete performance package for the new 2010 Mustang GT. The ROUSH 427R Mustang comes with more power, a new look and improved handling.
Power is increased to 435hp and 400 ft-lbs of torque thanks to a ROUSHcharger, which features a significantly improved intercooler setup over previous ROUSH models. The intercooler is a single core cross-flow unit with better cooling and is much larger than past versions. The reservoir is also twice as large as on past models. Even better, the intercooler sits higher in the vehicle to help reduce damage from road debris. ROUSH also went to great lengths to insure all the parts were top quality, not only for durability, but also to give that OEM appearance.
The ROUSHcharger comes with a 3 year/36,000 mile warranty.
Also a part of the 427R package is a new suspension setup and 18-inch cast (sigh… not forged) chrome wheels. A set of 20-inch wheels is a $1,115 option. The ROUSH suspension also comes with a ROUSH wheel hop reduction it, when the new suspension is installed at the factory.
The 427R package wouldn’t be complete without a new aero kit to set the car apart. The 427R kit comes with a new front fascia (with integrated lights) and front splitter, a rear bumper, side skirts and a three-piece rear wing.
The complete 427R also includes other odds and ends and is priced at a reasonable $14,156.
