Roush Stage 3 Mustang 2012 offered by UAE Ford dealer
The 2012 Roush Stage 3 Mustang is now officially available at Ford showrooms in the UAE. If anyone remembers, the Roush Mustang was offered with the cheesy “The Shamal” branding last year, but this year, it will simply go as the “Roush Stage 3” Mustang, with more power for 2012.
Essentially a tuned Ford Mustang GT modified by Roush with custom parts, the 5.0-litre V8 is fitted with an intercooled R2300 ROUSH supercharger at 10 psi. The ROUSHcharger increases the base horsepower from 412 hp to a Shelby-chasing 540 hp, with 630 Nm of torque.
Other Roush add-ons include a hollow-chamber exhaust system, high-performance Cooper tyres, front struts, rear shocks, front and rear springs, front and rear stabiliser bars, jounce bumpers, anti-wheelhop kit, 4-piston brakes and also 20-inch wheels in black or chrome.
A new feature of the 2012 Roush Stage 3 is the personal colour customisations for the paintjob, brake calipers and stickers. The Roush graphics used on the 2012 RS3 introduce metallic flaking in the striping.
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.
Priced at Dhs 260,000 on paper, it is actually going for Dhs 248,000 at the moment. The engine add-ons come with a 3-year/58,000 km dealer warranty, while we assume the rest of the car comes with the usual Ford warranty. The dealer is also offering Roush parts for regular Mustangs as well. The car is on display in some Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Sharjah showrooms.
260k for a car that doesn’t even have xenon headlights!
You drive a car by engine power, not xenon lights, i would rather settle for a normal light setup with cruel engine and nasty exhaust sound, that would fly the skirts up.
