Classic Car Facts

There is, perhaps, no car on the road that better marries race car and road car than the spectacular cars turned out by Steve Saleen’s legendary plant in Troy, Michigan.  With his lifelong passion for racing and speed, and an engineering and design know-how spanning decades, there is no question that the cars rolling out of his shop are a force to be reckoned with.

One such car is this 2006 Saleen S281 SC.  Having just 29,900 miles, this supercharged, 5-speed coupe is one of only 11 SC coupes so equipped in Satin Silver.  Entering Saleen’s shop as a Mustang GT, this car exited as a 476 HP/435 ft-lbs supercharged beast capable of launching you to 60 MPH in just 4.6 seconds, and reaching a quarter mile in the high 12s.  Saleen powertrain and chassis enhancements include the following:
