Top speed is a lie. Where do you get your information? I drove this car in the autobahn for three years.

I just bought a low mileage (42k miles) Marauder for my car lot. It's actually a very impressive car. Dominates the highway and pulls like freight train. May not be fastest car ever but it's high speed handling is surprising for a big car and the exhaust note at WOT is badass. If you like that style get one. You won't be disappointed

To all of idiots raving about the M3: No one gives the slightest shit about your pathetic 3.0 liter. I didn't get my Marauder because of it's speed. I got it because it has a cool engine. Cool engines make cars cool not times. Obviously the M3 is going to be faster than the Marauder but who cares? Your M3's are gay xD

Yep. A "Pimp Mobile" has it's virtues. This car is "Donk Heaven." I wouldn't "Donk it," If I had one. I'd add those police bumpers...and never fear traffic.

@hemisrt: I've been shopping for another vehicle after my S-10 Blazer's engine gave out. I was seriously considering a Ford Crown Victoria.
Btscarre1 8y ago
Fastest Panther production car!!! No Crown Vic or Grand Marquis keeps up! Like Chrysler 300 SRT8 and Chevy SS!
hemisrt 8y ago
I travel a LOT. Those used to be GREAT Rental Cars for LONG drives. Plenty of passing power. You will not get a leg cramp. If someone hits you...they die...not you.

Obviously gearbox limitation or some artifical limifer. If the topspeed number is correct at all.
Shaggy 8y ago
Just 117 mph, that's it? A stock Grand Marquis will do 135 mph.
hwyrauder 8y ago
FYI most Google search 0-60 specs for the M/M are from 6.8 -7.5..for a bone stock marauder.(not 8) seconds!!! a bone stock Grand Marquis runs 8.2 and Marauder is a whole lot faster than a G/M.
Shaggy 10y ago
It's just a suped up Grand Marquis.
joezee 11y ago
Again... a STOCK Marauder does 0-60 in just under 8 seconds and the 1/4 mile in 15.5ish at 92ish on an average day.... not some 40 degree winter day in canada for example... EVERY magazine that tested it , got slower times than the 96 Impala.... Impala had same hp and more torque(the factory rating of 260 was not correct).

I have one and couldnt be happier, everyone here is entitled to their opinon. Not trying to knock an M3 because they are nice, and fast out of the box at $58,400 as the BMW website states. But then what? No options to create the car your own way unless you have serious bank to personalize it. NA Cobra engine can be modified any which way from street use to aggressive track car. For as big as the car is, and how much it weighs, it handles a lot better than people think. And as for the muscle car comment, the cars that are out there today wouldnt have much respect if it weren\'t for the early hot rods and muscle cars of the 50\'s 60\'s and early 70\'s. The door to performance was always there, the USA was just a little more curious than the other companies to explore it.

We do not care about boy scouts and the cars they used to drive!!! Someone must have a boring life to talk about this car.
BumRush 13y ago
why would you even comment on this car? or even add it? or buy one? i could understand if you were an undercover police officer or on a stakeout, but really.
Marauder Owner 13y ago
I've had a G35 coupe and at 100 it starts running out of gas, the marauder is just waking up and really starts to run
Taemian 14y ago
$48,000?? Not even close! New, they listed about 35K, but sold for much less. You can get a low milage used one WITH a s/c for about $21,000 now. I'm sure an M3 sells for at least $42k with taxes. And don't even get me started on maintenance and parts costs. The Panther platform has been in police/taxi service for over 10 years in this form. Parts are cheap, aftermarket engine (SVT Cobra)support is great. We just did a 12.7 at the dragstrip with a bolt on s/c and exhaust.

I now its a rip off.
Anonymous 14y ago
its not bad looking, but it aint good looking either, if i was an undercover cop i would sho as hell be rocking one of these, and isnt this like $48,000 US dollars?? and correct me if im wrong but im pretty sure the M3 is no where near double this. and i do believe ANY M3 of any generatin can can this.

um, does anyone think this is good looking at all? I think it's pig ugly. and performance wise i can hardly think a stock version could even contemplate competing with european cars
nice to put a name to your slag?
Wads 14y ago
By apples to apples comparison I wasn't suggesting that this would compare to an M3.... just that it would be good to see where a stock version lines up against other stock cars. Only because FastestLaps is aimed at stock comparisons.
Taemian 14y ago
I just love how most of the slags are coming from people too scared to leave their names. Jeez.
Wads, you make a good point about stock lap times. The point of all these comments was to refute the first few posts. If you want to compare apples to apples with a stock M3, the M3 would win...except the M3 is at least double the price. Hardly an apples to apples comparison.
SO...If you spent even half what you'd spend on an M3 and modded a Marauder, you'd kick M3 butt. Bang for the buck is much higher on a Marauder than an M3, and there is no "planned obsolesence" like with the Bimmer line.
Most of us are car guys. We do more than just plunk down money for our rides. We actually work on them and create the cars the factory would have produced, if not for price point concerns. Why do you think Saleen/Roush/Steeda Mustangs sell so well? Same idea.
Please don't let ego get in the way of your understanding. Life's too short for that.
