Saleen Performance Vehicles, which by the way has nothing to do with Steve Saleen and his organizations, released the first details of their new S281 Convertible Mustang, set to be unveiled at at the 25th Annual Fabulous Fords Forever!, hosted at Knott’s Berry Farm in Buena Park, California, on Sunday, April 25th.

So the S281 Convertible which they say is going to offer an exhilarating driving experience, with refined drivability for real-world road conditions, comes with a 4.6-liter V8 engine. This unit gets a Saleen Series VI.5 twin-screw supercharger and dual-stage intercooler, and as a result it develops 485 hp and 460 lb.-ft. of torque.

Also to get the most of this power, Saleen has equipped the car with a short-throw, five-speed manual transmission and a limited-slip differential with 3.73:1 final drive ratio.

More details will become available in a couple days, stay tuned!

“For more than 25 years the Saleen name has stood for excellence in design, engineering, and driving dynamics,” said Mike Shields, CEO of Saleen Performance Vehicles. “The new S281 is an excellent example of what those words mean when we craft concepts into real cars. Our team has done a terrific job; I’m proud of them and proud to be offering this car to our customers.”
