Default Menacing ROUSH Stage 3 BlackJack Mustang Set to Stalk the Highways

Menacing ROUSH Stage 3 BlackJack Mustang Set to Stalk the Highways



http://www.roushperformance.com/must...lackjack.shtml

Press Release:
Quote:
If Batman owned a Mustang, the new 2007 ROUSH Stage 3 BlackJack would most certainly be the ride of choice for the Caped Crusader. This menacing 430 horsepower tone-on-tone limited edition pony car comes straight from the mind of Jack Roush himself and is set to stalk the streets of Gotham City, and the rest of the country.

Jack Roush had the vision, and the ROUSH Stage 3 BlackJack Mustang is the result. He personally developed the content of this black-on-black car, and a prototype build was his vehicle of choice while at many of the NASCAR Nextel Cup events during the 2006 season. That particular Mustang recently ended up on the Barrett-Jackson auction block as an extremely collectible one-of-a-kind car. Now, ROUSH Performance is set to offer a limited edition run of 100 ROUSH Stage 3 BlackJack Mustangs, all of which have been pre-sold through their ROUSH-authorized Ford dealer base.

"I am involved with all the vehicles that ROUSH Performance builds, but the Stage 3 BlackJack is really the first one which was entirely my design and I am quite proud of how well it turned out," said Jack Roush. "When I drove the prototype around the NASCAR tracks last season it got a lot of attention, mainly due to the intimidating theme of the car. Of course, the distinctive rumble of a ROUSHchargedTM V-8 engine turns a lot of heads, too. "

Jack Roush’s heritage as the winningest name in racing reverberates throughout the vehicle, starting with the powertrain which is what ROUSH Performance is so well known for. The polished ROUSHchargerTM system with a smaller pulley boosts the horsepower to 430 (with 400 lb.-ft. torque) which is the most in the history of the company. This system includes a Roots-style M90 supercharger, 38 lb.-hr. fuel injectors, ROUSH-designed intake manifold, intercooler assembly with radiator and a custom ROUSH ECM calibration to maximize optimal fuel and spark.

Aesthetics were also a big part of Roush’s vision for the Stage 3 BlackJack, starting with the matte black 21-inch stripe across the center of the black paint and the addition of the seven-piece ROUSH aerobody kit. Polished billet aluminum accessories, such as radiator, oil and strut tower caps, can be found throughout the engine compartment which contributes to the exciting package for street or track driving. Enthusiast drivers will immediately notice the handling of the vehicle has been improved by the addition of the Stage 3 suspension package which swaps out the stock front struts, rear shocks, front and rear springs, front and rear sway bar and jounce bumpers for ROUSH-engineered high performance versions.

Roush was also adamant about including the new ROUSH wheel hop reduction kit to help the rear wheel performance in low traction conditions. This is the only wheel hop kit on the market with a minimal NVH (noise, vibration and harshness) hit and no reduction in bushing life. Other manufacturers trade off anti-hop for a lot of noise, harshness and poor durability of the joints. The stopping rate is greatly improved with the addition of the ROUSH brake kit, a 14-inch, two-piece slotted rotor with four-piston calipers on the front and slotted rear rotors.

Interior upgrades include charcoal leather seating with an embroidered Stage 3 BlackJack logo, white electroluminescent gauges, billet aluminum pedal kit and short throw shifter with black shifter ball. The car comes standard with the ROUSH carbon fiber design dash trim kit and embroidered floor mats. Even the door sills have been upgraded in this model.

A ROUSH Stage 3 BlackJack serialized badge is riveted to the engine compartment, along with a Stage 3 signature badge which is personally engraved with the signature of the ROUSH Performance technician which hand-assembled the vehicle in the company’s Livonia, Mich., facility. To further validate the 100 cars, each will come with a Certificate of Authenticity signed by Jack Roush.

Once you get behind the wheel you will immediately see why we claim that " Between a race car and a road car… Is a ROUSH car."

Based in Livonia, Mich., "The Art of Performance Engineering" takes place at ROUSH Performance. In addition to the Stage 1, Stage 2 and Stage 3 Ford Mustang and F-150 styling, handling and performance upgrades, a complete line of performance parts and crate engines are offered. For more information see your local ROUSH dealer, visit www.RoushPerformance.com or telephone toll-free (800) 59-ROUSH.

Roush stuff has a little too much focus on looks but that is a pretty badass ride.

I am a firm believer in ford needing to make the mustang into a corvette/viper fighter.. and bringing home the falcon.

~60,000 semi-lux 500+ hp mustang that is loud as balls
~40,000 higher end sedan (350 hpish) to fight lexus/bmw/merc entry models

But, like I've always said.. Ford believes making money is a bad long-term business strategy.

that's true about the HP these days. It takes a lot of HP to impress people. My supra puts 800+RWHP and it looks stock while this car looks like a it can take most cars. It would be fun to run into one of these on the road

Another 400+ hp Mustang that maybe, just maybe, might break into the 12s in the qtr mile. Looks cool though.

.
Couldn't disagree more. The Mustang has always been about good and cheap fun. The last thing that Ford needs to do is start raising it's price - even if they do increase it's performance. The car is simply not cut out for it. Hell, look at the Shelby 500 (or whatever it's called) - it's got more power than a Vette yet can't keep pace.

Ford did good when it came out with the Ford GT - now that was a Vette and Viper fighter, but no matter how much power you give the Mustang, it's still a fairly poorly put together, unrefined muscle car.

If Ford wants to go up against the Vette, then bring out another GT-type car... a true sportscar. Same deal if it wants to fight it out with BMW and Lexus - it needs a refined, high power, IRS car - the Mustang is not it.

Truthfully what FMC needs to do is bring everything they do in Europe to the US. Who cares about all that other stuff. They actually could make money with all of those cars. Just my .02.
