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
Gateway Classic Cars Philadelphia presents this intimidating 2010 Ford Mustang GT Roush 540 RH. If you have never heard of it you are not alone but once you drive it you will never forget it. This car was only made for one year and is number 30 of the 55 produced. ROUSHs new 540RH Mustang features a 540 Horsepower powerplant. Also known as the Hammer , this car comes armed with massive horsepower, a ROUSH rear decklid spoiler, and short throw shifter with a choice of white or black ball, the 540RH is a stoplight slayer. Proving just how quick this car can be ROUSH engineers recorded an 11.8-second elapsed time at 121 mph during testing at Milan (Mich.) Drag way. The new ROUSH 540RH is really intended to be a sleeper car, Roush explained. It will be purposely built with minimal content as it was designed for the buyer who wanted the ROUSH horsepower but with a blank canvas that can be customized into their own personal one-of-a-kind ride. Remember that for later because this buyer went NUTS. The 2010 ROUSH 540RH has a new suspension package which includes front and rear springs, front and rear stabilizer bars and jounce bumper, and a subtle tone-on-tone striping package. This vehicle uses the same engine that debuted in the 2009 ROUSH P-51B Mustang. To get this type of power from the Ford 4.6L, 3-valve engine, ROUSH technicians replace many of the internal components with stronger parts including forged aluminum pistons (with an increased dish to lower the compression ratio from 9.8 to 8.6), forged steel H-Beam connecting rods and a forged steel crankshaft. The fuel rails are changed, as are the fuel injectors and an upgraded fuel pump. ROUSH also upgrades the clutch and includes a custom-calibration for the ECM to manage the performance of the next-generation R2300 ROUSHcharger . As is standard with all new ROUSH Mustangs, this car will come with the anti-wheel hop kit installed during the assembly process. Now as if that s not enough the owner of this car then spent an additional $30,000 in suspension and performance modifications that were done at local performance vendors. There are literally too many to list but give us a call and we can talk about them. Don t miss the opportunity to own this great car for less than the original MSRP.
