Article by Christian Andrei, on September 26, 2011

Roush Performance has unveiled the new 2012 Roush Stage 3 (RS3) Mustang, which will be available in limited numbers. Defined as the Hyper-Series, the 2012 ROUSH Stage 3 Mustang is powered by a TVS 2.3L ROUSHcharger system that could provide more than 540 hp of output and 465 ft/lbs of torque.

This dynamic powerplant is mated to a six-speed manual transmission and is complemented by a ROUSH-calibrated suspension that lowers the Mustang by nearly an inch while allowing the vehicle to pull more than 1G of lateral force on a dry skid pad. This Hyper-Series is specified with a ROUSH-tuned performance that is responsible for producing an ear-pleasing roar.

Roush Performance is offering four limited edition appearance packages for the 2012 Roush Stage 3 (RS3) Mustang. Gary Jurick, VP and General Manager of ROUSH Performance, quipped that the 2012 RS3 Mustang has been a big seller not just because of its power and handling performance, but also because of the available 288 graphics and paint color combo.

Jurick added that four distinct graphics and interior color package provide a customized look to the RS3. As standard, the 2012 RS3 Hyper-Series Mustang features a black body paint as a base. Customers could choose from the four available four color options - "Gas It Green," "Launch It Lemon," "Mat It Mango," and "Punch It Purple."

Roush Performance plans to build only 25 examples of each color and each will be serialized as Roush certified builds. In addition, each example will be numbered according to their production spot for each Hyper-Series color (i.e. "Vehicle #17 of 25 - Gas It Green ").

This color is also present on the exterior graphics, the rear faux gas cap and badges, as well as on the leather seating, the shift boot stitching and suede door panels. Moreover, each of the 2012 RS3 Hyper-Series Mustang features two shifter balls that could be swapped out according to the driver’s mood.

Each example of the Hyper-Series RS3 is covered by a the-year/36,000-mile warranty and will be available from Roush Performance starting October 2011. Further information can be obtained at http://www.roushperformance.com/2012-hyper-series-stage3-mustang.

ROUSH Performance announces exclusive 2012 ROUSH Stage 3 Mustang Hyper-Series vehicle package

Lively. Tireless. Active. Fierce. Excited. The vehicle design team at ROUSH Performance continues to build on their theme of DETROIT MUSCLE | REDEFINED by launching a limited quantity of ROUSH Stage 3 (RS3) Mustangs aptly defined as the Hyper-Series. The 2012 ROUSH Stage 3 Mustang is powered by a 50-state legal TVS 2.3L ROUSHcharger® system that delivers over 540HP and 465 ft/lbs of torque.

The powertrain works in concert with the ROUSH-calibrated suspension that lowers the Mustang by almost an ince, and enables the vehicle to pull over 1G of lateral force on a dry skid pad. The ROUSH-tuned performance exhaust delivers a throaty growl that let's everyone know that you're piloting some Detroit Muscle. The Hyper-Series builds on the ROUSH Stage 3's horsepower and handling by offering a set of four limited edition appearance packages.

"The 2012 RS3 Mustang has been a big hit with our customers and enthusiasts. Not just because of the RS3's power and handling performance, but also 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."

Each 2012 RS3 Hyper-Series Mustang comes standard with black body paint as the base. The Hyper-Series palette includes these four color options: "Mat It Mango", "Gas It Green", "Punch It Purple", and "Launch It Lemon". For the 2012 model year, ROUSH Performance will only build twenty-five vehicles of each color. Vehicles will be serialized as ROUSH certified builds, and will be numbered as per their production spot for each Hyper-Series color (ie: "Vehicle #12 of 25 – Mat It Mango").

"The materials used in the Hyper-Series graphics really allow these unique colors to pop and dance in the changing sunlight," continues Gary Jurick. "The primary graphic color is hyper black, to compliment the hyper black wheels, and then the graphics accent stripe appears in the selected Hyper-Series color."

This color is then applied to the exterior graphics, badges, and rear faux gas cap. The dynamic accent color also carries through the interior on the suede door panels, leather seating, and the shift boot stitching. Each 2012 RS3 Hyper-Series Mustang comes with two shifter balls that are easily swapped out depending on the mood of the driver. "The Hyper-Series shifter ball color really 'pops' as you view the interior of one of these Hyper-Series RS3's!" says Jurick.

"We decided to include a second shifter ball that's a bit more conservative, if preferred." The 2012 RS3 Hyper-Series includes a suede-wrapped steering wheel to add a comfortable feel while driving a performance car. Finally, each new RS3 Hyper-Series owner will receive a unique accessories package including ROUSH apparel and display items to commemorate their serialized Hyper-Series vehicle.

The Hyper-Series RS3 is covered by a 3-year/36,000-mile warranty and is currently available with a 6-speed manual transmission only.
