Saleen Performance Vehicles revealed their new S281 model based on 2010 Ford Mustang, prepared for this year’s SEMA show. This package is honestly one of the coolest Mustang we’ve seen for this car, they say it’s a car for enthusiasts who are looking for an exhilarating driving experience, with refined driveability for real-world road conditions. Saleen has took a more elegant approach designing this car than tuners usually do. It comes with modified front and rear fascia that makes it even more muscular.
The car is powered by a 4.6 liter V8 with Saleen Series VI.5 twin-screw supercharger and dual-stage intercooler. It chucks out 485 hp and 460 lb.-ft. of torque. This power is delivered to the rear wheels through a a short-throw, five-speed manual transmission and a limited-slip differential with 3.73:1 final drive ratio.
As for chassis tuning, Saleen has provided this car with a racing grade suspension. It includes specially tuned, single-rate front and rear springs; nitrogen-pressurized front struts and rear shocks with a wide range of damping adjustments; and a specially tuned front sway bar with performance pivot bushings.
The S281 is also fitted with 20-inch, 7-spoke alloy wheels with Pirelli P-Zero Rosso high-performance tires.
For the interior Saleen offers leather sport seats with Ultra-Suede inserts, highlighted by chevron-like Ultra-Suede red tabs in the seatback bolsters, and unique treatments of the gauges, steering wheel, center console and shifter. There also are contrasting Saleen logos in the door panels, and Saleen logos in the door sill plates that illuminate when the door is opened.
