2012 Roush Stage 3 Hyper-Series Debut

On the heels of the 2012 Roush Stage 3 (RS3) Mustang, now a supercharged powerhouse based on the 5.0 liter Coyote powertrain, the company has announced short runs of not one, but four special edition models.

Dubbed “Hyper Series”, separate production runs of 25 models will be built of four accent colors. Each 2012 RS3 Hyper-Series Mustang comes standard with black body paint as the base color. You can choose an accent color scheme of “Mat It Mango”, “Gas It Green”, “Punch It Purple”, and “Launch It Lemon”. Only 25 five numbered copies will be built in each color.

“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. Accent colors also carry through the interior on the suede door panels, leather seating, and the shift boot stitching. You even get two shifter balls with your Hyper Series so you can swap it out depending on your mood!

“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.”


Also included is a suede-wrapped steering wheel and a unique accessories package including ROUSH apparel and display items to commemorate their serialized Hyper-Series vehicle.

From a performance standpoint, the Hyper Series is based on the top of the line performance package from Roush. Based on the Stage 3 supercharged model, you get a TVS 2.3L ROUSHcharger system that delivers over 540hp and 465 ft/lbs of torque.

A Roush suspension lowers the Mustang by almost an inch, and enables the vehicle to pull over 1G of lateral force on a dry skid pad. A tuned exhaust with crafted shaped tips give you a throaty growl too

Like other Roush Stage 3 Mustangs, the Hyper-Series RS3 is 50-state legal and is covered by a 3-year/36,000-mile warranty. You will need to shift yourself however as it is only available with a six-speed manual transmission.

Get with your dealer now to get in line. Roush is allocating only a few cars to dealers. One of our sponsors, Ray Skillman Ford has reported on the www.FnSweet.com forums that they will be getting serial number #001 of some colors too. That’s a hot tip.
