With all the amenities and comfort of a new car, Royce has put quite a few miles on the pony but admits that it’s almost too nice to beat on now. Of course, sometimes you just got to see what it’s got. Royce proved it had plenty while tearing up the autocross track at the Columbus Goodguys show. The combination of kick-ass and class was enough to earn it a place as a finalist for Muscle Machine of the Year. Great job Royce!
