Ford just unveiled the limited edition and Australian-exclusive Mustang R-SPEC featuring a supercharger and created in collaboration with Herrod Performance.
How would a Ford Mustang 5.0L, sold with an aftermarket supercharger and a warranty backed by the manufacturer itself, sound? Sounds too good to be true. Well, not in Australia as Ford, in collaboration with Herrod Performance, created the Ford Mustang R-SPEC.
The Mustang R-SPEC is fitted with not only a supercharger but also with Ford Performance powertrain components, suspension upgrades and specific Active Exhaust system.
Powered by a 5.0L V8, the R-SPEC pumps out 700 horsepower and 610 pound-feet of torque, thanks to the Ford Performance Roush 2650 supercharger kit.
The beast, which was developed through a collaboration with Herrod Performance, the largest distributor of Ford Performance Parts outside of North America, includes a five-year/unlimited kilometre warranty backed by both Ford and Herrod.
The Ford Mustang R-SPEC will be limited to 500 copies which will be individually numbered. The R-SPEC treatment features, other than what we mentioned above, some unique black exterior parts and graphics, R-SPEC specific 19” Ford Performance black wheels and an exclusive trunk lid spoiler.
“We have been working hard with Herrod Performance to deliver a supercharged Mustang to Australian customers,” said Kay Hart, President and CEO, Ford Australia and New Zealand. “Now, working with Herrod Performance, we’ve been able to bring this special edition Mustang to Australian customers through our extensive dealership network, and with the peace-of-mind of five-year, unlimited kilometre warranties backed by Ford and Herrod.”
This limited-edition Mustang will arrive in Australian showrooms in early 2020 with an MSRP of $99,980 AUD. The pre-orders start tomorrow, October 10th, 2019.
