Given that the 21st century has seen a sort of return to the roots aspect for the Mustang, it was probably only a matter of time before the Boss 302 made a return. Over the last few years there's been steady and growing interest in the concept of a new-age Trans Am Special.
Jim Clarke led the charge with the creation of the 5.0 HO V8 for the Mustang in 1982 and was responsible for the continuous improvement of the 5.0 throughout the '80s. What Jim and his team accomplished is truly amazing.
Classic Car Overview
There are interesting cars, then theres This vehicle was an exclusive, built at the Roush Livonia Michigan facility to be featured in an unproduced movie called Run. How about Development Vehicle for M90 Mustang Powertrain Certification. The director/writer/producer was to be John McTiernan who made some flicks you may have heard of. His resume includes Predator, Die Hard, Die Hard With A Vengeance, and The Thomas Crown Affair. The car was originally part of Roushs fleet for product development and testing. When the studio approached Roush to create vehicles for the film, the Roush crew customized this car and two others. This is an intriguing vehicle with or without the Hollywood connection. As a 2005, it predates the 427R by three model years. But the car served as a development vehicle for the M90 supercharged powertrain. Roushs engineers were all over the car, tweaking all systems to perfection. The 4.6L overhead cam engine has been fortified with the M90 ROUSHcharger, intake manifolds, intercooler, air induction system, radiator, the Roush calibrated ECM and custom fuel system. Everything works in harmony to generate a solid 445 horsepower and 409 pound/feet of torque. When you open the door, youll see that this Mustang means business. Theres no back seat, but instead a hefty roll cage with carbon fiber wrap. A flat-bottom racing steering wheel provides the ultimate in control. A big Roush racing memory tach is mounted in full view, and Roush gauges also monitor boost, plus oil and water temperature. Carbon fiber adorns the dash and center stack, while the seats are Corbeau/Roush units with RJS racing harnesses. This is a super fun ride. A five-speed manual with Roush shifter helps to keep you in the power band, and a drift style handbrake system is for, well, you know. Lets just say that movie stunt drivers love these. The exterior was treated to a complete Roush 427 body kit and 427R striping. A big change that separates this car from the pack are the flared rear fenders. They accommodate extra large rubber. The Roush crew did such a great job that the flares almost go unnoticed, but the wheels are staggered with 18s in the front and big 20 inchers in back. Track worthiness is definitely enhanced with massive 6-piston front brakes. Perhaps Roushs most compelling custom touch is the PPG Argent Chromium paint, which sells at a cost of $1700.00 per gallon. Jack Roush is a legend in NASCAR, NHRA Drag Racing, and as an engineer and innovator. His signature appears center stage on the dash confirming his approval of this one-of-a-kind creation. Although the odometer shows 30,000+ miles, the car has only seen about 2000 miles since the Roush crew performed their magic on the paint and all the performance upgrades and mods. Movie star, track star, or highway star, this very special 2005 Roush Mustang 427R is ready and waiting for you to enjoy now at Maxmotive.
