I thought I saw something about the release date being in the summer. If dealers are open in your arw area you could call and ask or send an email to an internet manager per their dealer website.

Here's a Factory supercharged 2012 Roush at $45,000. that I found on Autotrader. I'd be interested what you guys can see specifically has been done by Roush at the factory. What's your opinion of the car? Here's the link to the Autotrader ad:

from the ad you linked, which looks like it was taken from the Roush page

The powertrain of this vehicle features the 5.0L 4-valve DOHC TiVCT engine further enhanced by the R2300 ROUSH supercharger, feeding 10psi of intercooled energy to the already robust Coyote engine. The ROUSHcharger increases the base horsepower from 412HP to an impressive 540HP. The suspension system consists of finely tuned ROUSH front struts, rear shocks, front and rear springs, front and rear stabilizer bars, jounce bumpers, and anti-wheel hop kit. ROUSHcharged 5.0L Powertrain System (540 hp / 465 ft-lb) Includes TVS 2.3L ROUSHcharger intake manifolds, intercooler & radiator, air induction system and ROUSH calibrated ECM ROUSH Square Tip Performance Exhaust ROUSH Front Fascia with Driving Lamps ROUSH Front Fascia Blackout Graphic ROUSH Front Chin Splitter ROUSH Billet Upper Grille with R Badge Square R Fender Badges ROUSH Side Rocker Splitters ROUSH Rear Valance ROUSH Rear Decklid Spoiler ROUSH Rear Blackout Panel with Jack Roush Signature ROUSH Stage 3 R Faux Gas Cap Badge ROUSH Stage 3 Decklid Badge ROUSH Stage 3 Graphics Package ROUSH Front Windshield Banner Performance Tuned Suspension System Includes front struts, rear shocks, front and rear springs, front sway bar, and jounce bumpers

Thank You PNYXPRESS!

I got the mechanical mods, but I was curious about the styling mods.

Styling-wise, looks like the standard Roush graphics, wheels, gauges, wheels, and interior plaque. Doesn't look like the car has the Roush seats, they look Ford factory, and no short throw shifter that I can tell. Price feels high, even with the mileage.

I'm not interested in the car, but just for my education..... is this a Factory Roush?

Yes. Serial number is 0426. "Roush S1" for the GT is the entry level package. It allows you to have the serial number, and then pick and choose the options you want above an beyond the looks of a Roush car. It's just the emblems and body. No supercharger, brakes, suspension, seats etc.... Though any of them can be added as a Roush option.
