Look! It's a Roush....and it isn't a Mustang! Roush Europe has pulled the wraps off its new Ford GT-based 600RE for Europe and the UK. It's super-limited -- only 10 will be built, and on the technical side, the conversion includes a pulley upgrade for the blower, Tubi exhaust, and a transmission oil breather. Appearance modifications include black powder-coated wheels, a lighting package, tinted glass, and the expected limited-edition plates and badging. Engine hoses get the color-coordination treatment as well, and optional 4-point harnesses are available for the car's two occupants. No power number is given, but we wonder if the car's name offers a clue. Roush Europe doesn't give a price, either, but you know how that goes: if you have to ask...

ROUSH EUROPE LAUNCHES THE NEW ROUSH 600RE
Roush is a name that has become synonymous with the Ford GT. To mark the end of production of these fabulous cars, Roush have developed a very limited edition series of cars called 600RE. 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.
The vehicle is designed and assembled at the Roush Technical Centre, based in Brentwood, Essex; which is also the only official Ford GT service centre in the UK. The 600RE is being marketed solely through Avro Motor Cars in Surrey.
