0 2017 Roush Stage 3 Mustang Drive

Push the button and the 2017 Roush Stage 3 Mustang burbles to life. From inside the cabin the exhaust is a bit deeper than a stock Mustang, but otherwise this 670-horsepower machine behaves like a stock Mustang. Grabbing the round shift knob and gliding it into First gear to pull out onto the legendary Sebring International Raceway and the exhaust comes alive. Something special is about to happen…

“The 2017 ROUSH Stage 3 Mustang is a direct reflection of our culture at Roush Performance,” said Roush VP of Products, Justin Schroeder. “Our people are passionate about creating the high-performance lifestyle.We live it, and want to enable our customers to live it as well.”

We were recently invited along with a gaggle of enthusiast media, social media influencers and Roush customers to experience the company’s latest top-tier Mustang on the storied Sebring pavement. Though we have driven earlier versions on the street, the chance to drive one in anger on this track is not to be denied, and it served as a fine venue to test the mettle of the Roush vehicles.
