2005 Mustang GTX?

Dropped in to get the stang's maintenance done this morning and I noticed
a bunch of Mustang "gtx" cars on the lot along with an S281 (drool!). Does
anyone know what a GTX is?! I couldn't find it on the web anywhere.

Isnt that what Roush is calling their level 3 kit now? Could be wrong, no
one around here can even ORDER an S281, but I heard that buying the full
boat from roush gave you gtx badges.

I'm not sure, they looked like v6 Stangs, and they don't look like the
Roush Stage 1 at all. I'm still drooling over that 281, I'm going to make
sure I look at it again when I pick my car up! ;-)

I'll ask, but I expect it to be around $35K naturally aspirated and $65K
blown. Found out what the GTX is, it's apparently something this
dealership is doing on their own. It's an interior/exterior upgrade
package for both the GT and V6.

Are they even allowed to do that?? What exactly is in this upgrade that
doesnt come in the appearance packages?

I'm not sure if they are or not, but they put stripes on them and they
have GTX "badges" which are really the same material as the stripes. Some
of them have the billet like grill inserts, though I think they are just
painted. I didn't really look in one, I'm not sure if I like it or not.

That Saleen was $48K natural, awful expensive IMHO for a body kit and 25
horses.
