2012 Roush Stage 3 Mustang-Red
The 2012 ROUSH Stage 3 Mustang, which produces an improved 540 HP, is now available at Al Tayer Motors Ford showrooms in the UAE.
Al Tayer Motors was appointed the UAE's official dealer for ROUSH Performance Products last year.
"We received an enthusiastic response from muscle car lovers who enjoy the enhanced performance offered by the ROUSH Stage 3 Mustang. This year, the added horse power of the new-look car will appeal to motoring enthusiasts who like to do more with their car in their leisure time, such as taking the car to a racing circuit to enjoy the thrilling driving experience it offers," said Ashok Khanna, Chief Executive Officer, Al Tayer Motors.
The cars are priced at AED 260,000/- and are currently on display in Al Tayer Motors' showrooms at the following locations: Sheikh Zayed Road showroom and Garhoud in Dubai; Al Wahda Street showroom in Sharjah as well as in Ras Al Khaimah and Fujairah. They are also available at the Premier Motors' showroom at Khalidiya, Abu Dhabi and in Al Ain.
The 2012 ROUSH Stage 3 Mustang
The powertrain of this vehicle features the 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. ROUSH supports this system with an impressive 3 year/58,000 kilometre full powertrain warranty.
However technology enhancements made to the car enable it to deliver the same level of fuel consumption as earlier giving 21 mpg during highway driving.
The innovative off-road ROUSH exhaust system featured with this vehicle explores the limit of how mean a car can sound, and given that the system has a unique hollow-chamber muffler design, the sound won't change over time like a conventional fibreglass packed exhaust would.
The performance of this car doesn't stop with the engine. High-performance Cooper tires (2XS or ultra high performance RS3 tyres) aid in acceleration, cornering, and safely bringing the car back down to zero MPH when necessary. 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, allowing for personal customisation of three different aesthetic elements of the car: eight choices for the base vehicle colour that include Grabber Blue, White, Kona Blue, Race Red, Candy Red, Black, Ingot Silver and Lava Red; six graphic colours and six graphic accent colours. 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.
Beyond the Stage 3's paint and graphics, the colour options continue with two paint options for the high performance brake callipers. The ever-popular ROUSH Red will continue to be a colour option for the 4-piston, 14-inch rotor system, as will black painted callipers of this system. The wheels of this vehicle also features new colour options, with the all new 20-inch Hyper-Black or 20-inch Chrome Wheel selection.
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.
