(from Roush Press
Release) Roush/Superformance Special Edition MKIII-R
What happens when you take the most sought after 1965 licensed
reproduction Cobra replica and shoehorn in an engine built by a
company that has more Ford wins than any other manufacture?
You get the Roush/Superformance Special Edition MKIII-R!
The Roush/Superformance Special Edition MKIII-R was built
specifically to tour the country and represent the bread and butter
of what Roush Performance Engines and Superformance LLC have to
offer. The plan was to build a one off display vehicle, but the
project’s high interest quickly changed everyone’s mind and suddenly
the car was slated for production. The Special Edition car was
introduced to the public at the 2007 SEMA show in Las Vegas Nevada.
The MKIII-R showed the public what it has always wanted to see - two
industry leaders working together to produce the best of both
worlds, a stunning double diamond with the roar of a lion under the
hood. A car that is truly pleasing to all of your senses!

pieces were all collected, Hillbank called on Exotic Automotive

The MKIII-R started its journey in South Africa, where it was built
completely minus the engine and transmission by Hi Tech Automotive
RSA and shipped Hillbank Motor Corp. After 5 weeks on the water it
arrived at Hillbank and was quickly sent over to Exotic where it
began the transformation process.

quick jacks, all the way down to the Tonneau cover rivets and roll
bar and sent them out to be coated in a black chrome finish. With
