2013 ROUSH RS Ford Mustang now on the docket

ROUSH Performance has another flavor of the month to add to its stables of Ford Mustang tuners.  The 2013 Ford Mustang V6 now gets some TLC from the ROUSH crew and the treatment results in the latest performance installment, dubbed the 2013 ROUSH RS or “ROUSH Six” Mustang.  With the core of ROUSH’s Mustang fleet focused upon performance, muscle, and lap times, the ROUSH RS Mustang tees up a new concept which the market tends to be leaning toward…performance (shaken, not stirred) with a twist of economical smarts.

The ROUSH RS Mustang V6 package carries a price tag of $4,000 and boasts numerous chassis, braking, and cosmetic improvements to take the Mustang coupe and give it some serious flair and panache.  It doesn’t stop there, either–the interior of the 2013 ROUSH Six also gets embroidered floor mats, performance foot pedals, and the typical ROUSH badging around the cabin.

So just what else is in store on this latest ROUSH installment?  Keep reading to get the full scoop in the Press Release, following.

Reversion Ford Mustang spotted in Detroit

After getting a tip on this new/old Ford Mustang spin-off being “local” to one of the StangNet staff, we figured we’d give a shout out to the Auto Kraft folks from Lincoln, Nebraska and their “Reversion Mustang.  The car itself is a complete retro throwback built upon today’s modern day Mustang platform and if you have not been able to catch it in person, you’re missing out.  The Reversion rendition of the Mustang is set to continue its tour through other popular Ford and Mustang events throughout the rest of this summer’s tour, having just completed a stint in Detroit…where several Ford field personnel made sure to pay close attention to the car’s attention to style and detail in workmanship.

Great job on this one, guys!
