If there is one man that knows how to build a fast Ford, it''s Jack Roush. Ford already offered the public a Mustang GT that produced over 400 horsepower, but that is hardly enough for the team at Roush Performance. With 540 horsepower and less than 7K miles on the clock, this 2012 Ford Mustang Roush Stage 3 is a pristine example of some of Jack Roush''s best work. Starting life as a convertible 2012 Mustang GT, this Roush Stage 3(also dubbed RS3) underwent a host of cosmetic upgrades to live up to the standards of wearing the ''ROUSH'' windshield banner. Buyers were given a wide range of color options for the body and graphics, creating 288 unique color combinations. This one wears a vivid coat of Race Red with black stripes and white stripe accents. Black and red have always gone well together and this car is certainly no exception. With the fully loaded RS3, the lucky owner gets a ROUSH front fascia with driving lights and chin spoiler, a billet grill, side rocker splitters, rear valence with newly designed exhaust tips, and a rear deck-lid spoiler. Reminding onlookers of what they''re in the presence of are familiar Roush badges with subtle ''540 HP'' callouts. And exclusive 20'''' Roush wheels wrap up the showroom fresh look. Roush styling enhancements don''t stop on the outside, the first notable cues inside are the wonderfully designed black buckets that are wrapped in leather with red stitching, and feature alcantara inserts with more dual stitching and a ''3'' branded logo reminding you what stage of Roush performance you''re about to take the wheel of. Where ever you look, there is more ''ROUSH'' branding such as the illuminiscent gauges that features Ford MyColor, the foot pedals, the round shift knob, and the boost gauge strategically mounted in the left air vent. The steering wheel is wrapped in more alcantara, giving a pleasant hint that you''re in a special Mustang. But if you aren''t so sure, there is also a Roush plaque mounted in front of the shifter, ROUSH illuminated door sills, and even a signature by Jack Roush himself on the glove box. Being 2012 Mustang, you can count on all of the luxuries you would expect like keyless entry, an AM/FM/CD player with satellite capability, Ford''s SYNC system, air conditioning, cruise control, power seats, a power convertible top, and many more modern amenities. A Stage 2 package from Roush would stop with cosmetic upgrades and few bells and whistles in the handling department, but the Stage 3 goes a good bit further. The main feature of this RS3 Mustang is the 5.0L V8 that has been fitted with an R2300 Roots-type supercharger that forces intercooled air into the 302 cubic inch motor to create 540 horsepower! Mash the gas pedal to the floor and the ROUSH exhaust system roars to life as you row through the gears of the 6-speed manual transmission. Knowing that straight line acceleration is only part of the equation, Roush Performance installed fine tuned front struts and rear shocks, upgraded springs, front and rear stabilizer bars, and an anti-wheel hop kit. This is a car that is capable to be driven daily or lay down some insane numbers at the open track day. Keeping things under control under hard acceleration and heavy braking are sticky 275/35/20 Coooper Zeon RS3 tires at all four corners(believed to be original to the car) with power four-wheel disc brakes clamped by ROUSH Red brake calipers. First thing''s first, this is a car that was built to terrorize the street and dominate at the track. If you''re a performance enthusiast, it''s a car you''ll enjoy driving for years to come. If you''re a collector that is looking to preserve some limited production late model muscle, well...here''s your car. Call today! This vehicle is located in our Charlotte showroom.
