So I made a tactical error last night.
Right before I slept I opened up my iPad and decided to look up “Superformance Los Angeles”. This Google search then brought up the main Superformance website. Which then brought me to a local dealer in Irvine called Hillbank Motorports. Which in turn brought me to their used inventory.
Which finally brought me to this:
For those of you who are in the know, the picture above is of a used 2009 Superformance MKIII dealer demo that holds a Roush 427SR with Custom Valve Covers and Air Lid Cover combined with Tremec TKO600 5 speed transmission.
As you can guess, sleep went out the window.
This was the car for me.
This was the car I could imagine myself driving down PCH going 100 – I mean – the speed limit just listening to the roar of the engine underneath my feet.
This was the car I would slow down when I would pass by a highly mirrored glass building so I can see myself drive by.
This was the car that would make me forget about having responsibilities while I drove it.
And then of course, I went back to the Superformance website and found there is an even better, more badass version of the MKIII called the MKIII-R.
The original MKIII is a rolling chassis (see: no engine) with the following specifications:
According to the official Superformance MKIII-R press release, the MKIII-R has these additional features:
- Roush emblems and shifter nob
- American Racng 18″ pin drive wheels
- Custom Roush Floor mats and Wind Wings
- Custom Wilwood upgraded power-assisted vented disc brakes
- Custom sway bars
- Bilstein shocks and H & R Springs
- Cobra seats with custom embroidery
- Black Chrome Trim
So in essence, my original dream got shattered by a better dream. Which really isn’t all that bad.
