They'll be craning their necks on the street when this goes by: The Roush 427R version of the Ford Mustang cranks out 427 horsepower thanks to a Roots-type supercharger.
LIVONIA, Mich. (Sept. 5, 2006)
Yet again raising the standards in the Mustang world, ROUSH Performance
unveiled the new 427R model with a total of 427 horsepower under the hood and ready to unleash with the turn of a
key. This is the most horsepower ever offered on any version of the
number 427 has been intertwined in the Ford product line for many years, both as a car model and one of the most
powerful and legendary engines in their line. It is only natural that ROUSH, as perhaps the best Ford
in the country, is the company to reintroduce the number to the
automotive lexicon using modern engine technology.
Based on the acclaimed
ROUSH Stage 3
, this version is slightly less in content but includes 100 percent
of the fun factor. The 427R horsepower package is highlighted by the intercooled
* system which adds 115 horsepower and 65
lb-ft of torque to the base Ford 4.6L, 3-valve V8 powertrain system. The additional power upgrade comes via a
ROUSH-engineered ECM calibration which has been specially-tuned to work in harmony with the different exhaust system
used on the vehicle.
Further adding to the style and performance of the
2007 ROUSH 427R
is a four-piece aerobody kit which includes a stylized front fascia, front chin spoiler, hood
scoop and rear wing and ROUSH 18-inch cast chrome wheels with high-performance tires and the special 427R striping kit.
The sports-tuned suspension includes all new front struts, rear shocks, front and rear springs and sway bars and the jounce
bumpers. Each component was designed for both comfort and performance by the industry-leading ROUSH automotive
Authenticating the vehicle are special ROUSH fender badges, decklid emblem, a serialized engine bay plate, and a ROUSH
engine build plaque personally engraved by the technician who upgraded the car in the Livonia, Mich., facility. The
ROUSH 427R is available in both coupe and convertible versions.
To assist customers in creating their own personalized one-of-a-kind vehicle, a variety of options are also available which
include white face gauges, interior carbon fiber design dash trim kit, short throw shifter, door sill plates, and ROUSH
sport leather seating.
"The new ROUSH 427R is a natural extension of our product line," said Joe Thompson, general manager of ROUSH
Performance Products. "It has more horsepower than any car we have produced in our company's history and I
expect that this will become one of the most popular vehicles that ROUSH Performance has ever offered."
Based in Livonia, Mich., "The Art of Performance Engineering" takes place at Roush Performance. In addition
to the Stage 1, Stage 2 and Stage 3 Ford Mustang and F-150 styling, handling and performance upgrades, a complete line of
performance parts and crate engines are offered. For more information see your local ROUSH dealer, visit
