ROUSH Hyper Series Stage 3 Ford Mustang

Looks like there is another 2012 Ford Mustang to hit the streets, based upon the already awesome ROUSH Stage 3 (RS3) Mustang crafted by ROUSH Performance.  This 2012 Mustang “Hyper Series” Stage 3 boasts a whopping 540hp and 465ft-lbs of torque, has a fully-tuned suspension capable of pinning over 1G of lateral force, and of course, continues to follow in the steps of warranted craftsmanship we all know well enough from ROUSH Performance products.

So what sets the Hyper Series Stage 3 apart from its vanilla namesake?  A barrage of 4 limited edition appearance packages set to mark the cars with a bit more panache and attractiveness than what’s normally expected by the ROUSH enthusiast crowd.  There are 288 graphics and paint color combos that could be had by any prospective ROUSH Mustang owner.  The Hyper-Series brings on an offering of “four spectacular and unique graphics and interior colors that provide a customized appearance to the RS3.”

2012 Ford Mustang Boss 302 exhaust videos

The 2012 Ford Mustang Boss 302 has truly lived up to its nameplate and the Boss moniker isn’t exactly one to learn; it’s one to earn.  So many of us had been thinking Ford would have come back with a 2012 Mustang to sweep the sweet Shelby Mustang aside temporarily in the spotlight…and we were right.  Hey, what’s not to like?  The car has insanely-hot styling cues, 444 horses underhood, and now, a means to bring upon an even louder, more aggressive presence.
