The Saleen 302 Mustang, as it will be called, marks a refreshing return to form for Saleen, which recently branched way, way outside of its typical purview by commencing modification work on Tesla’s electric Model S sedan.
As intriguing as that project may be, Saleen is a company that was built on Mustang tuning, and we’d have been shocked if it had passed up the opportunity to tweak Ford’s latest pony car.
For starters, there’s the 302 name, which suggests that the Saleen 302 Mustang will get 302 cubic inches of displacement, or the same as the stock 2015 Mustang GT’s 5.0-liter V-8. Saleen doesn’t specify what, if any, mods it has in store for the V-8, but the hood will have a scoop, so there’s that.
Speaking of vents and body openings, the Saleen 302 certainly has a lot of them, at least up front, where the 2015 Mustang’s face has been transformed into a rather, uh, Chevrolet Camaro–like mug.
So far, that’s all we know about the Saleen 302 Mustang, but buyers can begin placing orders for the car now.Expect deliveries to begin—and more information to trickle out—later this year.
