Limited Edition: Ford GT 600RE

Last week in London I went to a place I also visited in January this year. This specific place was home to a Aston Martin DB9 Volante, Bentley Turbo RL and Lamborghini Murcielago so I was hoping to find the Murcielago again and get some shots of it. Unfortunately the Lamborghini was not present but as I walked a bit further down the parking lot, I ran into this amazing black on black machine!

It's a black Ford GT which has been tuned by Roush. The name of this tuning company sounds familiar, they also tuned the new Mustang GT a while ago. The 600 in "600RE" stands for 600 bhp so it got 50 bhp more than the normale GT. By increasing the power of the car, it automatically has more torque. Roush also tuned the Mustang, which was given the name Mustang 420RE.

You will get the following when you decide to buy the Roush package:

- Upgraded supercharger pulley system
- Unique vehicle numbering and identity plaques
- Unique keyed light pack
- Tubi exhaust system
- Tinted glass
- Transmission oil breather system
- Colour keyed hoses
- Black powder coated wheels
- 4-Point Harness Pack (optional)

The engine is a supercharged 5.4 liter V8 which produces 600 bhp at 6500 rpm and has a torque of 678 Nm at 3750 rpm. This Ford GT 600RE weighs 1540 kg, has a topspeed of 206 miles per hour and will do 0 - 60 mph in 3.3 seconds!

For now, this is the only GT 600RE built so far. Roush said they will build no more than 10 of these so it's a very unique and exclusive car!
