2008 Roush 428R Mustang

Roush Performance continues to pay tribute to Ford's legendary history with the 428R Mustang, a limited edition pony car which follows in the tremendous success of their 427R model introduced in 2007.

'We are continuing to honor and celebrate the heritage of the proudest models of Ford racing history - the 427, 428 and 429 (engines),' stated Jack Roush. 'These are iconic numbers in the Ford world and it is an honor to put them onto Roush Mustangs and insert them back into the muscle car world.'

'The 427R is easily the most popular Mustang model that Roush has ever introduced to the market,' said Joe Thompson, Roush Performance's vice president and general manager. 'That vehicle will remain the cornerstone of our lineup, but to celebrate Ford's history of automotive breakthroughs we will build a 428R in 2008 and a 429R in 2009. These cars are intended to be a collector's edition with limited production that pays respect to Ford Muscle Car history.'

2008 Roush 428R Mustang
The 2008 Roush 428R Mustang is limited to 200 vehicles, each a potent street slayer with 435 horsepower and 400 lb.-ft. of torque thanks to the famous ROÚSHcharger system, which, in the 428R is a chrome powdercoat which glistens when the hood is raised. Other under-the-hood goodies include Roush billet radiator and intercooler radiator caps, oil cap, and strut tower caps which add to the sparkling engine compartment.

The looks of the car continue on the exterior also, with the Roush front fascia, chin spoiler, hood scoop and rear wing adding to the muscular look. The locking hood pins show the world that there is something lurking under the hood, and the black bar high-flow grille adds to the aesthetics.

As for handling, the Roush suspension package makes it simple to manage the left and right turns. Changed by the Roush technicians are the front and rear shocks, front and rear springs, front and rear sway bars, jounce bumpers and an anti-wheel hop kit is installed at the Livonia, Mich., factory. Roush 18-inch cast wheels and high-performance tires grip the road, and the offroad exhaust system gives the Roush 428R the necessary growl expected from a V8 Mustang.


The interior of the 428R gets the Roush treatment as well as Roush sport leather seating is installed, the white face electro luminescent gauge cluster, and the Roush short throw shifter with retro ball makes quick gear changes. Rounding out some of the interior upgrades are Roush sill plates and floor mats.

As with all Roush vehicles, the 428R comes with unique fender and decklid badges as well as a pair of engine bay plaques to authenticate this as an official Roush vehicle. Each vehicle comes with a Certificate of Authenticity signed by Jack Roush. The ROÚSH 428R is available with either a five-speed manual or automatic transmission. (posted on conceptcarz.com)
