The 427R Mustang is the most popular Mustang model that ROUSH has ever offered, which is saying something when it comes from a company whose core business is producing bigger, better and meaner Mustangs. Today ROUSH announced that it will continue honoring the storied engines of Ford's past by adding the limited edition 428R Mustang to its 2008 lineup. ROUSH has plans to produce only 200 copies of the 428R, which will arrive at
dealerships next month. It's up to any current 427R owners out there to consider whether the following changes warrant an upgrade to something a bit more exclusive. For one, the Mustang's ROUSHcharged (supercharged) 4.6L V8 has been further massaged to produce 435 HP and 400 ft-lbs. of torque, up from 427 HP and 391 ft-lbs. in the 427R. It appears the 428R gets the same ROUSH suspension package, exhaust and brakes as the 427R, but in terms of exterior styling, the 428R features a single set of headlamps up front, as well as a "black bar high-flow grille" with no galloping Mustang. There's plenty of ROUSH badging inside the vehicle and out, and the interior gets branded floor mats and sill plates, as well as ROUSH sport leather seating, a ROUSH short throw shifter with a retro ball top, and white face gauges.

Also revealed with the 428R is news that ROUSH will also introduce a 429R model for the 2009 model year. No word yet on what it will hide underhood, but expect it to be even more powerful than the 428R introduced today. Of course, one might be inclined to note that the world hardly needs yet another variant of the Ford Mustang, but as long as people keep buying them, companies like ROUSH will keep producing them.
