The S197 Saleen Extreme series represent some of the wildest Mustangs from Saleen Automotive’s extensive history. Leaving no mystery as to why this late-model Mustang continues in popularity 10-years after introduction.
Our feature vehicle, 07-0050E was ordered and delivered through Sill-Terhar Ford in Broomfield Colorado with a staggering suggested MSRP of $96,104.00. Model year 2007 introduced forged 5-spoke wheels as standard equipment for the Extreme series. Additional standard features were HID lighting, Rockford Fosgate® Punch trunk mounted amplifier and styling bar (for convertible models). Optional equipment where chrome finish wheels and Saleen custom Beryllium Orange paint.
By the numbers:
From 2005 through 2008, it is believed Saleen Inc produced 14 Beryllium Orange Mustangs. This exterior color was discontinued for the 2009 model year. Of the 14 produced, 8 were Extreme models. Of these 8, 3 were 2007 model year cars. Of these 3, two were coupes and one was a convertible. This convertible was produced by Saleen’s Troy Michigan facility.
Of the 269 known production records for 2005-2007 S281 Extreme models, 7 appear to have come from the Troy Michigan facility. This is why 07-0050E features body color under the hood. Custom paint cars from Michigan tend to have this trait, while Irvine custom paint cars tend to have flat black under their hoods.
