Roush Performance Products


Roush Performance Products to make European market debut at National Kit & Performance Car Show, Donnington, 15-16 October 2005

Roush Performance Products (RPP) - body and styling kits, brake and suspension upgrades, up-rated powertrain components and fully developed engines - are to be introduced and marketed in Europe by Roush and Mountune Racing. Roush Performance products is a division of Roush Industries, Roush Europe’s US-based parent company. The range of products will make its UK debut at the forthcoming National Kit and Performance Car Show at Donnington in October 2005.

In addition, Roush is developing a retail distribution organisation, initially through a number of selected outlets, already involved with UK and Continental European sales of specific car imports - such as the new Ford Mustang.

The V8 Ford derived packages - already hugely successful in the US, will be offered alongside Mountune Racing’s rapidly growing off-the-shelf range of fully developed and dressed ‘Power-to-Go’ performance engines. The move will place Mountune Racing at the forefront of the market for SVA compliant street performance units - and off-road and race engines.

The V8 series engines are built by Roush to similar specifications as the successful race and competition units - and are available in various levels of dress and finish. The entry-level 5-litre engine typically delivers over 400 bhp, rising to a massive 700 bhp for the larger 5.8 litre and 7.5 litre versions.

Already, Mountune Racing offers an increasing number of developed engine options including Ford Duratec 1600cc, 2000cc and 2300cc 4-cylinder, delivering 195bhp to 320bhp. The company also offers the 3-litre Jaguar V6 in power ratings up to 400bhp - and is developing a short-stroke 2.5 litre unit for rally applications such as the 6R4.

Mountune Racing has also added a number of other manufacturers’ engines to its performance range - including a Mitsubishi Group N unit with Pectel engine management for Evo 6, 7 and 8 - and the recently introduced 2-litre and 2.4 litre RST-V8, which is assembled and marketed as a joint venture with Motopower.
