Roush 427R Trakpak
Here's an opportunity that sure doesn't come around very often. This 2008 Ford Mustang Roush 427R Trakpak represents the modern day muscle car in a skillfully enhanced form. Roush engineering has worked their magic on Mustangs for well over 40 years and they've hit it out of the park with this specimen, combining plenty of exhilarating performance enhancements that come at no detriment to the car's excellent street manners to make it a blast to drive. The rarity of this model is worth noting as well - Roush produced a scant 100 of them this very year, so the collectability factor here is substantial.
This '08 wears a great color combo, with its metallic gray exterior ornamented by a single broad stripe running the down the length of its scooped hood. The body modifications that come via the Roush aftermarket Aerobody kit, including the front fascia, chin spoiler, hood scoop and rear wing, confer an unmistakable air of customization without taking things too far, aesthetically speaking. Relatively light usage, consistent sheltering and careful navigation over the years - the car has logged just 47,000 miles and comes with a clean AutoCheck report - have left this top tier Mustang looking nice and fresh. Its paint is still clean and shiny, the ground effects are in good form and the set of ultra-sharp forged wheels are free of curb rash. As you'd expect from the aftermarket wizardry of a company that puts a high premium on handling - Roush had already extracted a 1.0 skid pad reading from a Mustang under their care more than 20 years ago - this street machine sits low to the ground.
The black leather interior mixes the model's already considerable functionality and style with some strong added touches to make for a very compelling driving environment. The nicely contoured front buckets are embroidered with Roush's signature and show only the slightest of wear, the rear bench seat looks nearly unused and both loom over an expanse of carpet that's still in clean condition and punctuated with branded floor mats. Up front, the dash area has been enhanced with a sharp carbon fiber trim kit and is in great shape, with a trio of white faced gauges taking their place at the center, combining with their factory counterparts in the instrument cluster that are all crystal clear and functioning just as intended. This is not only a distinctive cockpit, but a well-equipped and comfortable one as well - there's an AM/FM/Cassette stereo on board that combines with a CD changer and the air conditioning blows plenty cold to keep things comfortable.
Beneath the hood is a fuel injected 4.6 liter V8 that's been fortified by Roush's own take on the supercharger, the Roushcharger, as well as an upgraded intake manifold and air induction system and a specially calibrated engine control module, upping its output to a full 435 horsepower and 400 lb./ft. of torque to make this car one quick Pony. The engine sends a deep, commanding note out of its aftermarket exhaust as it pairs with a 5-speed manual transmission for an exhilarating “hands on” driving experience. The emphasis on world class handling is evident as well - there's adjustable coilovers at both ends, as well as a number of other suspension modifications. Power disc brakes that feature sizable rotors for heat dissipation bring this exceptional Mustang's set of 18” Roush forged wheels to rapid stops as needed.
The chance to own a Mustang that's been optimized at the hands of renowned professionals is compelling enough, and the thoroughly clean condition of this 2008 Ford Mustang Roush 427R Trakpak makes this chance all the more rare. Call today!
