In the automotive world, there are a select number of small batch manufacturers that start off with a good vehicle, obsessively massage it, and manage to improve it greatly. The idea is not to completely redesign, but rather to rebuild it in a manner that says, "this is the way they should have build this car."

25 years ago Steve Saleen took this path with the Ford Mustang and since then, he has been successfully tweaking Mustangs into serious, limited production performance cars. Since the founding of the company in the early 1980s, Saleen has won the Manufacturers GT Championship nine times and has produced over 12,000 EPA certified vehicles. In addition to these cars, it has equipped over 600,000 additional vehicles worldwide. Impressive.

To commemorate its 25th Anniversary, Saleen produced just 25 Saleen Automotive SA-25 Sterling Edition Mustangs – hand painted, loaded with performance options and as exclusive as it gets, these Sterling Edition cars are as rare as the S7, but based on one of America’s Muscle car staples, the Ford Mustang.

The power plant in the Saleen is a quick revving 302 Modular V8 with 620 HP and 600 lb-ft TQ. As a power adder, the engine uses a port matched Twin Screw Supercharger with Dual Stage Water-to-Air Intercooler system connected to one of Saleen’s Cold Air Induction systems. At the front of this unit is a Hi -Flow mass air flow sensor and K&N style filter. Engine internals include forged aluminum pistons, forged connecting rods, forged crankshaft and performance camshaft. The aluminum cylinder heads have been ported on a 5-axis CNC machine. This nasty powerplant exhales through a stainless exhaust with a really race sounding note. Gone is the 5-speed transmission, and in its place is a new 6-speed unit. The rear is a trick Speed-Sensitive LSD and the car utilizes a performance clutch with a lightweight flywheel.

The handling on the Saleen is lightening quick courtesy of the Racecraft suspension. The car rides on tuned coilovers, beefed up sway bars and has a Watts linkage rear suspension. The brake system features massive 15" rotors up front with 6 piston calipers and 11.8 inch rotors in the rear. The wheels are custom forged 20" one piece wheels that really set set off the stance of the vehicle.

The Saleen is practical enough for everyday driving, fast enough for the track, and extremely collectable. No matter what your needs are, this car has it all.
