2017 ROUSH Level 3 Ford Mustang 5.0

49

This bad-to-the-bone ‘Murican muscle car is actually a locally built vehicle, thanks to the capable folks over at Laz Performance.

The base 5.0 Mustang comes with a respectable 306 kW. With the addition of the R2300 TVS supercharger and new active exhaust, the ROUSH Level 3 Mustang produces a very hefty 500 kW, with 800 Nm of across-the-board torque.

Our RoadTest data showed a 0-100 time of just 4.42 seconds, along with a 0-200 time of 13.65 seconds.

The ROUSH Level 3 kit also seen the car’s appearance and handling vastly altered, with a set of new adjustable coil-overs. The looks are taken car of by a new body kit, which includes a new bumper, -hood scoop, -rear wing, -side intakes, and race-inspired -rear diffuser.

The cost of the Level 3 kit comes in at R650 000. On top of the R850k list price, the total comes in at around R1.5 million.

That price does at least include a comprehensive 3 year/60 000 km warranty.

Certainly not a cheap pony then, but certainly one of the fastest, baddest, and loudest Mustangs on the road!
