Looking to redefine its vision of Detroit Muscle this year, Roush Performance has rolled out the new 2012 Roush Stage 3 Mustang.
The Mustang’s 5.0-liter 4-valve DOHC TiVCT power plant is upgraded with a R2300 ROUSHcharger, force-feeding up to 12 psi of inter-cooled energy to the already robust Coyote engine. The supercharger induction system increases the base horsepower from 412 to 540, and achieves 465 foot-pounds of torque.
The 2012 RS3 takes to the streets with an all new graphics and appearance package, with a wide variety of base and stripe color options available.
“In addition to the powerful Roush powertrain and tuned suspension, we’re really excited about the new graphics and design options,” says Gary Jurick, VP/GM of Roush Performance. “The redefined graphics introduce new metallic colors utilizing automotive paint-grade materials. The result is a breathtakingly deep tone to the RS3’s graphics. We’re now providing our Roush consumers a very broad spectrum of graphics and color combinations to consider for their 2012 RS3 Mustang.”
The ROUSHcharged 2012 RS3 vehicle is currently not available for sale into California and other states requiring CARB emissions standards, according to a press release.
The RS3 is priced at around $60,000 and is currently available with a 6-speed manual transmission only.
