Roush Performance’s Stage 3 (RS3) Upgrade on the Ford Mustang already touts some serious upgrades, including the addition of the 50-state legal TVS 2.3-liter ROUSHcharger system that beefs up the Mustang’s output to 540 horsepower and 465 lb/ft of torque. Now, in an attempt to add more sizzle to an already spicy aftermarket program, Roush Performance has come out with a limited edition set of their RS3 Mustangs called the "Hyper-Series."
The Hyper-Series doesn’t touch on any more performance modifications because the RS3 program already has that covered. What it does offer is a set of four limited edition aesthetic packages, each coming with their own four-color options.
Among the choices being offered in the Hyper-Series palette include "Mat it Mango," "Gas It Green," "Punch It Purple," and "Launch It Lemon." All of the vehicles will only come in 25-piece models serialized as Roush-certified builds for each of the Hyper-Series colors. To give an example, model no.1 for the Mat It Mango series will be designated as "Vehicle #1 of 25 - Mat It Mango."
The primary color of the Hyper-Series is black, which is then complimented by graphic accent stripes of the respective color schemes. This particular color is then applied to the exterior graphics, badges, and rear faux gas cap, as well as on the suede door panels, leather seating, and the shift boot stitching. Two shifter balls are also included, as well as a suede-wrapped steering wheel, and a unique accessories package that includes ROUSH apparel and display items to commemorate their serialized Hyper-Series vehicle.
"The 2012 RS3 Mustang has been a big hit with our customers and enthusiasts because of the 288 graphics and paint color combinations that can be selected," says Gary Jurick, VP and General Manager of ROUSH Performance.
"The Hyper-Series introduces four spectacular and unique graphics and interior colors that provide a customized appearance to the RS3."
