What an amazing car!!!
What an amazing day!!! :hihi:

THE CAR....
Went to a local dealership and this beautiful 427R caught me and my dads eye. Its bright red w/ flat black striping and decals. If you dont know the 427R its basically at stage 4+ Roush. lol Its got 435HP and 400 ft lb TQ, everything the Stage 3/ 427R has plus.... 6-Piston/ 14in Two Piece Slotted Front and Rear Disks w/ 2 separate sets of street and race oriented pads (Also has functionally 3in cooling ducts for brakes), Fully Adjustable Coil Overs in all four corners, Detroit Tru Trac Torsional Diff and Rear Axle vent, 3 gauge pod w/ Oil temp, Coolant temp, BOOST :happyhapp, and integrated shift light, Adjustable Carbon Fiber Functional Race Spoiler, I could go on and on but bacically its and 15,000 in Roush Performance parts added on top of everything the Stage 3 has to offer. :bigthumbsup

THE DRIVE....
Went drive up in the mountains near the dealership and this car is amazing!! Its soooo responsive in every way. I didnt push it but holy hell this thing is a beast! In a public mountain turn the driver will chicken out wayyyy before the cars near its limit, and those brakes always got youre back too.... you could slam on the brakes with no hands on the wheel and the thing would, for one, stay completely strait and perfectly balanced and two crack a rib or two in the process..... And the Roushcharged 4.6l 3v is fantastic..... how it pulls... how it sounds.... the torque..... its all sooooo perfect! :happyhapp O and to top it off... at one point we were speeding (but actually slowing down) coming off the secluded road into a little town when a cop got us going like 20 over but his only response was a slight smile and a nod :shigrin


I know what driving and mustang perfection is!!!
O and my dad just might buy the thing..... because theyll give him 20k off!
Im only 17 and this was a dream come true!!!!! O and if he does but it he said I can dive it for my last week of high school as a grad gift. lol could you imagen! :scratchchin .... showing up to the end of the year auto shop bbq in that thing! Some one pinch me because I must be dreaming :nogrinner

No how you feel. I drove the 5.4 cobra 525hp. The Roush couldn't hold a light to it. Especially when the Cobra is only $42,995.

The 0-60 is identical Trak Pak vs. GT500 and take those two to any race track and the GT500 wont be able to keep up. Even the dealers know its all motor with good enough brakes and not much else. While the Trak Pak has $30,000 in upgrades in all departments. Not to mention they only made 100 trak paks and the one were looking at is the same price. Im sorry but that little 3v 4.6 will take our big bad GT500. :so

Has anyone else driven one of these things?? :scratchchin

I've driven some stout Stangs in the past so I know how you feel! I was laughing when I was reading your post because I could just see you eyes bugging out on the drive!:bigthumbsup

Be sure to nab some pics if you dad ends up getting her.

Well I am a Roush fan but, that car is good but on a 1.8mi road course I was only 1.6s behind it in my V-6 automatic. So either I am the best driver to have ever lived or ehhh. Seriously though for a turn key car it is real fast I just have to wonder how fast I could have made it go.

You are one lucky kid, you know that!? :hihi:

The Roush Stage 3 will beat a GT500 in a road coarse (search Top Gear Roush vs GT500). The GT500 will be a Stage 3 in a straight line.

The 427 will destroy it everywhere!!! :happyhapp





For a second there I thought it was YOURS!!!! Like you bought it!!! :laugh:

No matter how much I love the ROUSH 427R's ( almost traded my GT in for one last year) there is NO way the 427 is going to beat a GT500 in the 1/4.

Lol... Yeah, you're right! I don't know what I was thinking. The GT500s have gobs more power and will still beat the Roush in a straight line. Oh well! :)

This beautiful Roush 427R is bright red with black striping and decals.
The Roush 427R Trak Pak is a very nice car, for sure!
But red with black stripes? Who would ever want that combination on their car?
