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.

For those satisfied with the performance from Ford‘s Mustang but looking for something more stylish, Roush Performance’s 2012 Ford Mustang Stage 2 is made for you. Leaving the engine untouched, Roush Performance’s Stage 2 Mustang features both their styling and suspension packages, with a huge collection of optional upgrades to make your Mustang hug those corners tighter while also looking better.
The core package is priced at $7,800 and comes complete with Roush’s front bumper, front chin splitter, billet upper grille, side rocker splitters, rear valence and decklid spoiler. Minor accessories for the exterior include square R badges, a front fascia blackout graphic, Roush front windshield decal, R faux gas cap badge and a Stage 2 trunk badge. On the inside, Roush will equip your Mustang with embroidered floor mats, a center console badge/button and their Stage 2 interior medallion.
While the engine performance is untouched, Roush will also give you a Stage 2 engine bay plaque to show off your dedication to high-quality performance products. Their suspension system revamps the Mustang’s handling while a set of 18-inch chrome wheels with Cooper rubber gives you plenty of grip on the road.
Optional accessories range from white face gauges to their performance exhaust and 20-inch wheels. All are individually priced and can be had individually.
