Roush is to the Ford Mustang, what Cinderella’s Fairy Godmother is to pumpkins. They can take an already brilliant 2012 Ford Mustang, and turn it into an object of desire. 12-year-olds dream of one day owning a tire-shredding Roush Mustang. The 12-year-old’s father sees his son’s poster, and considers raiding the college fund to buy one. So when we hear news of a new Roush Mustang, excitement soon ensues.
However…the new Roush Mustang is more of a…tiara. For a mere $4,000, you can have Roush outfit your new V6-powered 2012 Ford Mustang with a subtle bodykit, Roush lowering springs with “progressive rate jounce bumpers” (for better handling), 19-inch Roush RS wheels, RS badging, embroidered floor mats, and billet pedals. Options for your 305-hp pumpkin coach include special leather seats, a leather-wrapped sport steering wheel, and a hood scoop.
While the 2012 Roush Mustang RS may be more about ‘show’, than ‘go’. The 2012 Ford Mustang RS is certainly better looking than your boss’ daughter’s Mustang GT.
