Ford Motorsports and Roush Performance have teamed up to build a limited edition 2013 Roush Stage 3 Ford Mustang to be auctioned off for a very good cause. The proceeds will benefit the SAE’s education outreach programs during the SAE Foundation’s 25th anniversary Celebration.
The RS3 will feature custom silver edition paint and graphics and with a ROUSHcharged 5.0, connected to a Ford Racing “Aluminator” long block. It will put down a very healthy 625 hp and 540 ft. lbs. of torque. On top of that, it will have a Roush tuned suspension, custom SVT GT500 track pack wheels, custom Roush interior along with Roush custom body components.
“Roush is proud to join Ford and SAE in the effort to help the United States continue to improve our country’s skills in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education,” said Jack Roush, NASCAR team owner; legendary builder of performance and specialty vehicles; and former college math and physics professor. “SAE’s programs are proven winners in helping young people get excited and pursue careers in these high-skills areas. We’re pleased to be part of their winner’s circle.”
The brand new Roush will be auctioned off during a live auction at the Foundation’s 25th Anniversary Celebration that will be held on May 16th at Ford Field. This event will also honor Edsel B. Ford II with the Industry Leadership Award along with recognizing young men and women for leadership growth within the industry.
“This is an exciting opportunity to partner with two great brands like Roush and Ford to benefit our ongoing STEM programming efforts,” stated Miller. “The limited edition Roush Mustang is sure to be a big draw, given the American heritage of this muscle car, married with the performance and aesthetic modifications from Roush. It should be an exciting evening, and the winner will not only drive away with a cool car; the winner will help drive our efforts even further.”
