Special 2013 Roush Stage 3 Ford Mustang Goes to Auction
Roush Performance and Ford Motorsports are building a limited edition 2013 Roush Stage 3 Ford Mustang that will be auctioned at the SAE Foundation's 25th Anniversary Celebration. All proceeds will benefit SAE's education outreach programs.
This one-of-a-kind vehicle features custom silver edition painted body and graphics, a Roush 5.0L Supercharged Engine featuring the Ford Racing "Aluminator" long block with a 625 hp engine and 540 ft-lbs of torque, Roush tuned suspension, custom SVT GT500 track pack wheels, Roush custom body components and a customized Roush interior.
As TorqueNews.com managing editor Patrick Rall pointed out earlier this month in his piece on the 2013 Roush Mustangs, "The 2013 Roush Mustang Stage 3 package which takes the exterior and interior goodies from Stage 1, the handling goodies from Stage 2 and adds an engine upgrade package that pushes the output from the standard 420hp and 390lb-ft of torque up to a far healthier 565 horsepower and 505lb-ft of torque. Helping the Roush Stage 3 engine make this power is an Eaton TVS R2300 supercharger and a PCM calibrated by Roush engineers to not just make all of that power – but to do it safely enough for Roush to offer an awesome 3 year, 36,000 mile powertrain warranty."
Notice a slight discrepancy between the Roush Stage 3 Patrick wrote about and the one being auctioned off? The SAE version apparently has 60 more horsepower and 35 lb. ft. more of torque as if the "stock" Roush Stage 3 Mustang wasn't already powerful enough.
