Who says math and science aren't fun? Not SAE.

Roush Performance and Ford Motorsports are building a limited edition 2013 Roush Stage 3 Ford Mustang that will be auctioned live at the SAE Foundation’s 25th Anniversary Celebration on 16 May 2012 at Ford Field in Detroit. All proceeds will go to SAE’s science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education programs. Roush is a former college math and physics professor.

“Roush is proud to join Ford and SAE in the effort to help the United States continue to improve our country’s skills in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education,” said Jack Roush, NASCAR team owner and renowned builder of performance and specialty vehicles.

What’s said to be a unique pony car has a custom silver body and graphics, a Roush 5-liter supercharged V8 engine using  Ford Racing’s “Aluminator” long block. The engine is rated at 625 horsepower and 540 ft-lbs of torque; numbers you can believe because of SAE standardized test procedures that stopped creative math calculations by performance car marketers.

Also included is a Roush tuned suspension, custom SVT GT500 track pack wheels, Roush custom body components and a customized Roush interior. Interested bidders can contact Renée Hayes at 724-772-8508 or rhayes@sae.org.

The SAE Foundation will honor Edsel B. Ford II with its Industry Leadership Award at the Ford Field event, which also marks the Foundation’s 25th Anniversary.
