Roush Europe Launches the Ford GT based 600RE

Ford might have finished the GT’s career but that doesn’t seem to bother the tuning-world. So after the Edo Competition GT, Roush Europe came out with a super-limited edition of Ford’s retro-looking supercar, available in just 10 units from “Avro Motor Cars” based at the historic Brooklands site in Surrey. Dubbed 600RE, Roush’s black-beauty boasts a number of features including an engine upgrade raising power and torque (though Roush doesn’t give any figures) along with a few subtle visual improvements like the sexy black powder coated rims. –Press Release after the jump

Based upon the Ford GT Supercar, this exclusive limited edition boasts a number of features including an engine upgrade – raising power and torque and providing the Roush 600RE with even greater levels of acceleration and performance. The 600RE has also enjoyed the Roush styling treatment both inside and out and comes complete with additional features to enhance its unique appearance.

Roush Europe’s Marketing Manager James Bassett says: “The Roush 600RE builds upon the success we achieved from the Roush 420RE Mustang. We have again, taken a winning formula and enhanced those areas with features which our customers have asked for. The Roush 600RE is a truly exclusive edition and takes the fantastic Ford GT forward – even further”…
