Mustang came No. 1 in the US News Ranking list for affordable sports cars this year. It has stayed on top of the mind of its cult comrades for much longer. As the 2012 Roush Stage 3™ Mustang barges into the UAE, it knocks down all defences of Mustang enthusiasts with a 5.0L 4-valve DOHC TiVCT engine further enhanced by the R2300 ROUSH supercharger, feeding 10psi of intercooled energy to the already robust Coyote engine. The ROUSHcharger increases the base horsepower from 412HP to an impressive 540HP. (Wow! That’s like rocket proportions.) ROUSH supports this system with a safe-to-be-reckless 3-year/58,000 kilometre full powertrain warranty.
Hold your mustangs before you feel guilty (although it’s almost an impossibility with a rider of the pony car!) Tech-wiz scrooges have made it possible to deliver the same level of fuel consumption as earlier giving 21mpg (11.2L/100km) during highway driving!
Now, boom-boom being as important a component to speed of a rocket, the innovative off-road ROUSH exhaust system explores the limit of how mean a Mustang can sound. With its unique hollow-chamber muffler design, the sound is here to stay, unlike a conventional fibreglass packed exhaust!
And supporting the performer from backstage are… high-performance Cooper tires (2XS or ultra high performance RS3 tyres) lending a strong hand in acceleration, cornering, and safely returning the car to speed zero. The suspension system consists of finely tuned ROUSH front struts, rear shocks, front and rear springs, front and rear stabilizer bars, jounce bumpers, and anti-wheel hop kit.
A new feature of the 2012 ROUSH Stage 3 is the colour options package. With eight exotic-sounding choices like Grabber Blue, Kona Blue, Race Red, Ingot Silver and Lava Red, the result is an impressive 288 unique colour combination possibilities. The ROUSH graphics used on the 2012 RS3 introduce metallic flaking into the automotive paint grade striping, providing a breathtakingly deep tone that looks more like custom paint than applied graphics. Colour options are available for the high performance brake callipers, chrome wheels and more!
The RS3 comes fully-loaded with body styling upgrades, including the ROUSH front fascia with driving lights, chin spoiler, side rocker splitters, rear valence, rear deck-lid spoiler, and newly designed square exhaust tips. Interior enhancements include ROUSH leather seats with an embroidered Stage 3 logo, four-piece performance pedals, ROUSH illuminated sill plates, newly designed shifter ball in either black or white, and a new interior Stage 3 badge with the car’s serial number engraved.
Al Tayer Motors will also offer existing Ford Mustang owners the option to buy a wide range of original ROUSH performance products to further enhance the horsepower, handling and appearance by customising their cars.
The 2012 ROUSH Stage 3™ Mustang is now available at Al Tayer Motors Ford showrooms in the UAE and Premier Motors’ showroom in Abu Dhabi and Al Ain – priced at AED 260,000/-
