This is the big one, the Saleen we’re probably all most interested in. Saleen calls it their “crown jewel,” and what a car it seems to be. 700 Horsepower. 655FT LBS of torque. A red butterfly air induction built into the hood scoop. This car is going to be a monster and should be faster than even the 2013 GT500. The mod list is almost as large as the price tag and very well may be worth it to those with deep enough pockets. We’ll have to wait to see an image of the final product as Saleen has not released an official photo yet, but bet on this thing looking extremely aggressive. WheelsHere’s the Specs Saleen has released on the 2014 Extreme 351:

Albeit a bit confusing and
horribly interestingly named, two things seem to have remained constant between the old Saleens and Steve’s new cars–they are hella fast and look MEAN. I know I’d love to own one. It won’t be too long before you start seeing them on dealer lots and once these beasts hit the streets, we’ll know if the quality holds up to what we’ve always come to expect from a Saleen Mustang.
