Saleen 30-Year Championship Mustang makes 730 horsepower
Saleen, the well-known Ford Mustang tuner, announced two 30-Year Championship Commemorative Edition models, one for the street and one for the track. In 1987, Steve Saleen’s team won the 1987 driver, manufacturer, team, and tire SCCA ESCORT Endurance Championships. Saleen has partnered with General Tire, the supplier for so many of Saleen’s cars back in the day.
The pair are based on the pre-refresh sixth-generation Ford Mustang GT. The 5.0-liter DOHC V8 now breaths through a massive 3.2-liter liquid-cooled supercharger. That bumps the output to 730 horsepower for the street version and 750 for the track model. Both models get new exhaust, while the track version gets a rear-seat delete, a four-point roll cage, four-point harness, and an upgraded radiator.
Other changes include Racecraft suspension and a special yellow, black, and white paint scheme. With all of the modifications, the road car looks very close to the track model. General Tire is debuting its new G-MAX RS performance rubber on the new Saleen car. It will be available to purchase from retailers. The street model will set you back $ 87,000, if you can grab one of just 30. The car goes into production in September.
