2008 Saleen Mustang Lineup

2008 Saleen S281RF

I don't know what to say. When Ford Motor Company and Carroll Shelby announced that the GT500 would have a 500hp engine I thought we had hit the ceiling of what was possible for a Mustang. Turns out I was way off.

2008 Saleen Mustang Lineup
In 2005 Saleen unveiled an extreme version of the S281SC which was to be their marquee model, the S281 Extreme. Sure the car looked great but with a measly 500hp what was one to do when they wanted to go fast? (sarcasm intended) Well Saleen answered that question with the unveiling of the 2008 Saleen S302 Extreme Mustang. That's right Saleen took the Mustang GT's 3 Valve 4.6L and punched it out to 302 cubic inches which in essence gives up back the beloved 5.0L! This isn't the 5.0L of 'ole though. Saleen added forged internals, and a Saleen twin screw supercharger that bumped the Extreme's engine to a fire breathing 620 horsepower and 600 ft/lbs of torque. Other updates to the 2008 Saleen Mustang lineup include the H302SC which is an update to Saleen's "Heritage" model stuffed with it's own version of the 302ci supercharged engine and for those looking for something more limited the S281RF. The S281RF is a limited production (only 100 made) model with two unique color combinations.
