Shootout Video: ROUSH 427R vs. Saleen S281

LIVONIA, Mich. – Apparently Valvoline recently commissioned "The Great American Pony Car Shootout" which pitted a ROUSH® 427RTM against a Saleen S281.



The cars were put through a full battery of tests, including 0-100-0 mph to check acceleration and braking, a slalom course, and hot laps around Thunder Hill Raceway.  The two Mustangs came from the showroom at Grand Prairie Ford in Texas.

As the test driver Derek Hill said, the goal was to determine "Which one is a thoroughbred and which one will go to the glue factory." Watch the video to learn which is which.
