US tuner Roush gives Ford GT one final push – to 600bhp
2 May 2007

Ford might have stopped production of its GT retro supercar, but American tuning firm Roush will still provide you with an even more extreme GT.Roush has applied its spanners to the GT and produced the GT 600RE, which, as the name suggests, packs 600bhp.As well as the 50bhp upgrade, there's 532lb ft of torque at 3800 rpm (an increase of 32lb ft), a Tubi exhaust system, black powder-coated wheels and tinted glass. All for the bargain price of £141,000. Only 10 GT 600REs are being produced, all made by Roush’s European division in Essex, and on sale exclusively at Avro Cars in Surrey. You don't have to have the all-black 'Batman's weekend wheels' look of the GT pictured, either, although we think it adds to the car’s appeal. All the standard GT colours are available, and stripes are still an option, so there's really nothing stopping you…
