New Reveal : 2010 Roush 427R Mustang

We'd be ling if we said that the standard 2010 Ford Mustang GT is all we want. The whole point of the 'Stang, is buying one, then make it faster, louder, and more exciting. Overall, tuned versions of the Mustang should be better. That's what Roush has been doing over the last generation Mustang. It's time for the 2010 Mustang to shine.
It's the Roush 427R Mustang, and it's the first of 2010 Roush 'Stangs to come. In fact, it's the first specially tuned 2010 Mustang. So this has to show the open-gate to all the tuning companies who plan to tune a Mustang in the future. So what Jack Roush and his successful NASCAR team is come up with a 2010 Mustang, that looks more aggressive, faster in straight lines, and even better at cornering.
In the looks department, Roush has not just added aggressive bulges to make it look superb, but also to aid the air-flow and aerodynamics. The front and rear fascias have been redesigned for better aerodynamics and to help air-flow to the engine in-and-out, but also looks sharp. Side skirts, side sills and a taller rear wing also make the car look better by design, nevertheless also improves aerodynamics. However, the new 18-inch chrome wheels are just to help with the look and feel of this new 'Stang. Personally, I prefer the previous 2005-2009 Roush 427R, it just looked like a growling monster. This new one is not quite as bold, but it still looks menacingly mad. It's up to you readers to decide which one is better looking.
Moving on to power, Roush know that looks aren't enough. Power is everything in muscle cars. The old 2005-2009 Roush 427R Mustang was a simply quick. It could handle 0-60 mph in about 4.4 seconds. And it was even quicker around the race track. This new Roush appears to be no different. Under the hood, Roush’s signature Roushcharger has made it into the 4.6L V8, packing 435 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque. No official numbers yet, but surely "faster than 4.4 seconds to 60' ".
Of course, Roush know that the Mustnag's standard live rear-axle suspension can't handle all that power. So Roush's handling kit includes, new suspension system with improved springs, shocks, dampers and sway bars. Roush also fitted the 427R with new brakes that are fade-resist.
Cost? Well, the whole kit is $14,156 over the base $27,995 Mustang GT model. Do the maths, and the base Roush 427R Mustang would start at $42,151. All this money is worth it though. When it hits the streets, it'll roll to compete with Shelby's GT500, and Saleen's all new SMS Supercars' 2010 Signature Series Mustangs.
