427R Test Drive

So me and my Twin brother were out looking for a car for him, andwe drive pass BIG Valley Ford. My brother goes "Dude look they have the new 2010 Mustangs out there. We had to stop. We walked over to the cars and musch to my surprise and delight the had Both the GT500 and 427R

Both cars look Sick. But I think the Roush was better looking. That thing was just to damn cool. The dealer guy goes you wanna test drive one? I yelled out oh hell yea. I want to drive the 427.

I have never ever been afraid to drive anything, but this thing scared me. the sound of the supercharger, the roar of the exhuast. oh yeah just pure 100% kick *** car. it was very very smooth. Roush did an awesome Job. I want one.

Re: 427R Test Drive

Yah I bet that was a great ride...wish the local ford dealer sold them, they're only an SVT certified dealer. I wouldn't mind owning one, but I'd still take the GT500 over it. Has more potential and better stock features...But, if someone was to give me a 427R, I wouldn't object!

Re: 427R Test Drive

There's a ford dealership in the next town over from mine that has a piss-ton of Roushes and Saleens. It's like an insta-woodie as you drive by. They even have the Saleen F-150's, which are very nice.

Re: 427R Test Drive

Before I test drove the the 427R, I asked which one he liked and he said the Roush. Mainly becuase it was lighter and less money. And there is big difference in price. the Roush was 51,000 and I think the GT500 was 69,000. I really don't remember. I wish I had taken pictures of both rides. Like I said Both cars looked sick.

Oh and I forgot in the last 30days I have driven a V6 AUTO. GT AUTO W/3.55gear GT MANUEL 3.73 gear and a 427R w/ 3.55gear

Yah, that sound's like dealer markup on the GT500.

Wow, that's a lot of mustang for 30 days. Over 1200 combined hp too.

Re: 427R Test Drive

My favorite so far is the 427R. Just barley step on the gas and so long. short shifter was sweet, but the stick sits to high. I would then say the AUTO GT. Don't get me wrong the Manuel GT was lots of fun and had a better gear. But that Auto was just as fun plus I didn't kill it at the light trying to take off . lol . I just need to get use to that clutch pedal. Sorta feels sloppy compaired to my 2004

I bet they're letting those Saleens go for cheap since there's no warranty on any of them!

I'd love to snag a Saleen F150, they look so much better than the Roush.

Re: 427R Test Drive

No warranty on a Saleen?? that blows. Both the Shelby and the Boush had the warranty. I wonder why Saleen doesnt have one

Re: 427R Test Drive

wow 69k for a gt500 ha ha... idiots... the GT500 is a better choice especially for the money spent (when the money spent is a normal amount, not a stupid ADM added on)
