Saleen Performance Vehicles released a few more details on their new S302 model based on the 2011 Ford Mustang 5.0. Disappointingly, at this stage the performance remains he same as standard, which means you have to live with just 425 hp of the car’s new 5.0 liter V8. But they offer interior and exterior modifications.

On the outside, the S302 come with a new grille and front fascia, new side skirts and a discrete boot lid spoiler at the back. Other feature contributing to both looks and handling is the 20-inch, 7-spoke alloy wheels set with Pirelli P-Zero high-performance tires. There is also a couple of Saleen S302 badges on the body.

Inside the car you get new, leather sport seats with Ultrasuede inserts, highlighted by chevron-like Ultrasuede red tabs in the seatback bolsters, and unique treatments of the gauges, steering wheel, center console and shifter, and some more badges!

So, actually it seems to be the most pointless tuning job ever! Because well, the performance is unchanged and the visual tweaks are very subtle and not much better than the car’s original design! However Michael Timarac, Brand Manager, Saleen Performance Vehicles doe not think so:

“We’ve taken high performance vehicles to the next level with this S302 Saleen. The S302 is being built now and will be in dealerships in the coming weeks.  I’m proud of this product and those who value performance vehicles will agree that the S302 is one of the best American exotic vehicles available on the market.”
