The Californian Saleen tuning company has updated their stable of Mustangs on steroids. Based on the fifth-generation 2007 Ford Mustang that was first introduced two years ago, the new Saleen H302 and H302SC seem to be inspired by the legendary 1967 Shelby GT500 ‘Eleanor’ that was immortalized in a classic Gone in Sixty Seconds movie starring Nicolas Cage and Angelina Jolie.
The new pair of muscle cars, named Saleen H302 and H302SC, is equipped with a powerful 302 cubic inch engine developing up to 580 hp and 525 lb-ft of torque.
The entry-level Ford Mustang Saleen H302 sports almost two times less powerful engine.
With the same displacement of 302 cubic inches, the powerplant produces only 390 hp because it lacks H302SC’s twin screw intercooled supercharger.
Both vehicles are equipped with Saleen Racecraft suspension, a short throw six-speed manual transmission, 14-inch front vented slotted brake rotors with four-piston calipers with ABS and a traction control system.
The H302 comes with a set of 19-inch forged aluminum alloy wheels in both silver and chrome, while the H302SC sports more exclusive painted seven-spoke 19-inch forged wheel.
The H302 will go on sale in October at a price of $56,999.
The gorgeous Saleen H302SC will start selling in December and will carry a damn hefty price tag of $74,999. Hell, you can get a Porsche for that!
