600 Horsepower Saleen Mustang Needs A Home

Auction / 10 Comments

The Saleen Mustang S302 Black Label is a rare beast.

In 2015 Saleen unveiled three flavors of its S302 model Mustang. The White Label edition bumped Ford's 5.0-liter Coyote V8 from 435 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque to 450 hp and 410 lb-ft, and nobody really cared. However, the S302 Black Label and S302 Yellow Label were not only cosmetically different but took power output to a whole new level using the Saleen Supercharger system. In either guise, Saleen customers got 640 horses and 565 lb-ft at their disposable along with plenty of aesthetic and performance upgrades inside and outside of the car. This particular one that's finished in Saleen Maliblue Metallic just popped up on Bring A Trailer.

Features of the Saleen treatment on the 2015 Mustang GT include a unique hood, front fascia, side skirts, rear spoiler, and lower rear fascia. While helping aerodynamics, the body kit also effectively lengths the Mustang by an inch up front and two inches at the back. Adding to its aggressive look is Saleen 20 inch wheels and, through those, you can see the big brake package that includes slotted front brake rotors and cross-drilled and slotted rear rotors. What you can't see without looking underneath is Saleen's S4 suspension package that uses its own springs, shocks, sway bars and bushings all around.

Our favorite thing about this car is that it was displayed at SEMA and the San Diego International Auto Show in 2015, but hasn't been treated as a show car. It only has 26,000 miles on the clock but they look like the kind of miles someone truly enjoyed. The front end has had some fixes and fresh paint from chips and the splitter being cracked, and it currently needs a set of front tires and some attention given to the handbrake.

Our second favorite thing is how the front will confuse people for a moment with its resemblance to the changes Dodge also made in 2015 to the Charger's front end as it flies by.
