Born of racing. It’s the Saleen DNA. Ten Manufacturers’ Championships, countless wins, astounding podium appearances and a myriad of records achieved. A tradition of performance, appearance and handling. Saleen Automotive Inc., celebrating its thirtieth anniversary as a specialty vehicle manufacturer, designs, engineers and certifies uncompromising performance vehicles and components for the global market.
The company, started by former racing driver Steve Saleen, began in 1983. Saleen used his business degree from USC, coupled with experience in his father’s manufacturing business, to build the company. Obviously his passion for racing also played an integral part. Steve began his racing career by way of autocrossing events throughout the late ‘60s and early ‘70s, then rapidly moved into SCCA pro series first competing in Formula Atlantic before moving into Trans-Am.
By 1984, the first Saleen street car was ready for sale. It boasted special aerodynamics, an attractive and highly functional cockpit and a precise handling suspension package. The result was a car built as a limited edition model with individual serial numbers assuring authenticity. In 1986, demonstrating the performance value of his signature vehicle, the company’s race team brought home the first victory for Saleen, with Ford and sponsor General Tire at the 24-hour race at Mosport Park in Ontario, Canada. The following year Saleen would win their first SCCA manufacture’s championship.
This winning tradition and track proven performance is found within the full range of Saleen production vehicles as well as Speedlab certified parts and accessories. Equipment designed and engineered to enhance the driving experience.
