Saleen announced a new model, the new and exciting 351 Mustang at the Los Angeles Auto Show. 13 years have passed since the first Saleen production car has been powered by a 351 CID power plant. This new one contains a lot of new technologies.
Under the hood, the new Saleen 351 Mustang hides a 351 cubic inch V8 engine capable of generating 700 horsepower and 655 lb. ft. of torque. This output is possible only if it paired to the Saleen 296 supercharger system. To transfer the output to the wheels, the engineers have provided a 6-speed transmission that comes with a high performance Saleen clutch system, but also with a 3.73:1 final drive ratio. This last one makes sure power goes where it is required. The model uses Saleen S4 suspension and a 15-inch brake package to handle the power. To send the power to the road, the new model was equipped with Saleen 5-spoke alloy wheels covered in high performance tires. The 351 Mustang will feature the Red Butterfly Center Air Induction system which has become a signature of the Saleen brand. Additional design components include full carbon fiber front and side splitters, as well as a carbon fiber red diffuser which contains the F-1 style tail lamp.
The first high-performance Saleen Mustangs went on sale in 1984. Steve Saleen himself being a race car driver has launched his racing career in 1969. In 1970 intended to win the first race he entered, but then moved to a professional racing career competing in the Formula Super Vee to the Formula Atlantic and more. He entered the luxury supercar niche in 2000 with the Saleen S7 at the well known Pebble Beach Concours de Elegance in California. In 2001, the carmaker introduced race version, the S7R.
Since 1984 Saleen offers a range of White, Yellow and Black Label high-performance vehicles. Each component used in the manufacturing process is built from scratch. The team is made of a wide range of designers, R&D engineers and production team members.
