Ford Mustang **Roush 427 R** **435 Horsepower** Chicago Cars Direct HD
Test drive of a stunning Supercharged 427R Stage 3 Roush Mustang from Chicago Cars Direct.
Jack Roush knows a thing or two about racing and Mustangs. His road racing career
includes more than 110 wins and 20 national championships, and this vast
expertise is evident throughout the ROUSH 427R Trak Pak.
Designed for the daily driver who enjoys pushing his car to the limits on
open track days, the ROUSH 427R Trak Pak Mustang has plenty of specialized
content to accommodate the unique needs of those who like driving up to the
edge on the racetrack in a safe, controlled environment.
With the addition of the intercooled ROUSHcharger™ the 427R Trak Pak Mustang has 435 horsepower and 400 lb.-ft.
of torque, plenty of power to quickly get up to speed on the straightaways.
The cooling system has been enhanced with a black bar high flow front
grille and radiator cooling shields. There is a functional strut tower
brace under the hood to help strengthen the chassis and decrease unwanted
The suspension system has been completely revamped to easily manage the
twists and turns of a road course. The ROUSH 427R Trak Pak suspension
includes adjustable front and rear shocks, front and rear springs, front
and rear stabilization bars, front and rear jounce bumpers and adjustable
To whoa this pony down ROUSH adds 6-piston front calipers with 14-inch,
two-piece slotted front rotors and slotted rear rotors. The brake pads are
replaced with high-performance racing quality versions, and the new ROUSH
brake cooling system and high temperature brake fluid will ensure that the
brakes will be ready when you need them the most.
The ROUSH three-piece aerobody kit gives the car a menacing look as it
roars past the other cars on the track, and consists of a front fascia,
front chin spoiler and hood scoop. The car rides on 18-inch forged wheels
painted a dark charcoal and mounted to ultra-performance tires for maximum
grip on the racetrack. The functional hood pins, unique graphics and
badging add to the overall styling of the car.
Inside the cockpit the driver will immediately notice the addition of the
new three-gauge dash pod with engine oil temperature, coolent temperature
and a Boost gauge. A shift light has
also been integrated into this dash pod as well. The ROUSH sport leather
seating, short throw shifter with retro-style ball, and four-piece
performance pedal kit help to round out the interior styling.
The number 427 has been intertwined in the Ford product line for many
years, both as a car model and one of the most powerful and legendary
engines in their line. It is only natural that ROUSH, as perhaps the best
Ford engine builder in the country, is the company to reintroduce the
number to the automotive lexicon using modern engine technology.
Based on the acclaimed ROUSH Stage 3 Mustang, this version is slightly
less in content but includes 100 percent of the fun factor. The 427R horsepower package is
highlighted by the intercooled ROUSHcharger* system which adds 135 horsepower and 65 lb-ft of
torque to the base Ford 4.6L, 3-valve V8 powertrain system. The additional
power upgrade comes via a ROUSH-engineered ECM calibration which has been
specially-tuned to work in harmony with the different Exhaust system used on the vehicle. The
resulting total power rating for this vehicle is 435hp and 400 lb-ft of
Further adding to the style and performance of the 2008 ROUSH 427R is a
four-piece aerobody kit which includes a stylized front fascia, front chin
spoiler, hood scoop and rear wing and ROUSH 18-inch cast chrome wheels with
high-performance tires and the special 427R striping kit.
We've driven our fair share of Mustangs, but it's a rare occasion
that we get to drive one at the track. That's part of the reason why we
made the seven hour trek from Southern California to Thunderhill Raceway in
Willows, CA, to get behind the wheel of Roush's new 427R Trak Pak Mustang. What's so special about the
Trak Pak? For starters, it's got a supercharged V8 packing 435 horsepower and an abundance
of race-ready items like an adjustable suspension, carbon fiber wing, and
14-inch brakes that all make it ideal for the weekend warrior who wants his
vehicle to handle the daily grind and track-day floggings. With only 100
being built, this may be one of the few opportunities to see one in the
sheetmetal, let alone to drive it on the track. While inclement weather the
night before threatened to ruin the trip, we were blessed with a rain-free
day, allowing us to explore the limits of the Trak Pak'd 427R. Follow the

Mercedes-Benz ML550 Sport--Chicago Cars Direct HD
Test drive and walkaround of a PRISTINE 2008 Mercedes-Benz ML550 Sport from
Chicago Cars Direct.
Outside the change isnt so evident; the new M looks a lot like the old,
re-rendered in hi-def. The corners and bodyside lines are a little more
creased; the trim and sparse chrome bits a little more defined. The
saw-tooth grille insert is reminiscent of machined industrial equipment.
Jeweled taillamps and HID headlights complete the high-tech theme. One
thing hasnt changed, thoughthat oversized, tri-pointed star on the grille
is still suitable for Flava-Flavs accessory drawer.
Under the skin, the M has grown up, too. Engine choices are mostly new or
updated, from the bread-and-butter V6 ML350 to the tested ML500, with
prices increasing concurrent to horsepower. Weve driven the
268-horse ML350 model (at around $39,000 to start), and found it to be
smooth if not exactly powerful. Zero-to-sixty acceleration is claimed to be
an utterly adequate 8.4 seconds. In other words, its entirely sufficient
for the soccer mom stereotype that we often see behind the wheel of these
And then theres that V8. The heart of the $48,500 ML500, weve enjoyed this
same motor in a number of Benzesand even in this second-heaviest of
applications (the new R-Class non-minivan is just a smidge stouter), its a
beaut. With 339 lb.-ft. of torque, theres no shortage of off-the-line
gruntand the 302 horsepower rating means the
M pulls to way beyond our own limits on public roads (self-imposed
restraint is prudent when piloting somebody elses spanking-new luxury
vehicle, especially a tall one). Even more go is available with the 510hp
AMG ML63, but we figure in an SUV, enough is enough. The ML500 hits 60
m.p.h. in under 7 seconds, which even we never found lacking. (For sciences
sake, we will reveal that the 0-60 time of the ML63 is said to be 5 seconds
flat, with top speed limited at over 155 m.p.h.)
In true over-engineered Mercedes tradition, the rest of the greasy bits are
more than up to the job of harnessing all that go. 255/55 rubber on 18-inch
rims give grip suitable for sports-cars; 50-series tires on 19s are
optional. Vented disc brakes of 13.8″ and 13″ diameter front/rear
provide plenty of contrasting whoa. The transmission is that famous
7G-TRONIC seven-speed automatic, which reacts quickly yet serenely to
driver inputs, never really feeling stressed. And the suspension, comprised
of double wishbones up front and 4-link coils out back, plus gas-charged
shocks, is softly compliant on rough roads, yet far from tippy or floaty
We didnt go too far off road, but weve tested MLs before and found them
more than capable of traversing rougher terrain than most owners will ever
see. Still, Mercedes outfits the ML500 with 4MATIC full-time
all-wheel-drive, so the truck can at least back up the claims its rugged
shape makes for it. For extra off-road prowess, Mercedes further fits a
standard hill-ascent/descent control system, ESP and Traction Control, and
four-channel ABS with off-road programming for better stopping on loose
Of course, your average Benz pilot probably never pops the hood, much less
investigates the hardware under the car. For these folks, the true allure
of a vehicle like thisbesides the status afforded by that aforementioned
badgeis the opulence to be found inside. And as youd expect, the new ML
doesnt fall short.
Youd expect leather seats and wood trimand you wouldnt be disappointed. But
you can feel the difference between Nappa leather from Italian bulls and
leather from, say, Flints finest milk cowsMercedes hides feel twice as
thick and yet twice as pliant as your average cow skin. The wood, too,
feels not so much like an appliqué as a structural part of the dashboard.
Even the interior bits your average driver doesnt often touch are
high-class; the dashtop, for instance, has more give than some cars
For a mid-size SUV, the ML is pretty roomy, too. Clever packaging gives
this new model more passenger space than the outgoing soft-roader,
especially in critical areas such as leg-room and elbow-room. An 8-speaker
standard stereo, tilt/telescope multi-function steering wheel, automatic
climate control, auto up/down windows, rain-sensing wipers and ambient
lighting round out the best of the M-Class standard fare. Throw in the
coffee table-sized sunroof, power everything, and full gauges with a
gorgeous backlighting glow, and you get a truck that imparts a serious
feeling of wealth to the drivereven if its just a loaner.
