What do you think of Roush offering a Mustang with a V6?

I wish they did a 2011-2012 version.

I think it's awesome!

Remember starting at 4k. I like the look but it seems like too much money for what you get. I guess that is the way it is when someone puts a name on the side. I bet they would upgrade a 2011 or 2012 V6 if you come up with the right scratch.

I prefer the look of the 11-12 Roush Mustangs, personally. Their 20x10 wheels look great!

I think it looks really sharp. I'm planning a ROUSH centered build for my '13 Sterling Gray V6 in the coming weeks. I'll keep you updated. It should have the 20's off a '12 RS3, suspension and such. I'm quite excited!

Looks amazing! I'm surprised it has those brembo pkg wheels, though. I like the wheels, just wouldn't expect to see on a Roush.

It's the take offs from their GT cars. They get a GT Brembo, make it into an RS whatever, then they stick springs and the take off wheels on a V6, add some graphics and a grill, and charge 4k for it. Awesome business idea, but in my opinion, way too over priced for what you get.

you would think they would offer some kind of power adder to juice it it up a bit atleast. Smart business move but not really getting much for your $4000. I still like the idea though and I think that we will start to see more performance companies taking interest in the new V6 since it does Produce almost the same numbers as a stock 4.6. Also the SVT Cobras from 96-98 were rated at 305 hp. Should be interesting to see what happens over the next few years.

Rex420, I thought the same thing. At least put a CAI, cat-back and tune on the thing if you're going to charge $4K.
