CORONA, CA – June 1, 2017 – Steve Saleen, CEO of Saleen Automotive, Inc. (OTCQB:SLNN) announces the 30-Year Championship Commemorative Edition with both a street and race version, featuring a renewed partnership with General Tire. These Black Label special editions celebrate the 1987 Driver, Manufacturer, Team, and Tire SCCA ESCORT Endurance Championships won by Saleen’s race team.

General Tire, which was essential to the success of Saleen Automotive race teams in the 1980s, will once again join forces with Saleen as a sponsor of these vehicles. These special Mustangs will sport Saleen’s signature white wheels with new General Tire ultra-high performance G-MAX-RS. “We are extremely proud to introduce the first summer tire for General with such a legendary brand as Saleen,” stated Travis Roffler, director of marketing for General Tire. “The new ultra-high performance G-MAX RS is a tire that we have been anticipating for a several years. Our dealers have asked for it and we know the market is ready for it. This new Saleen Mustang is a perfect match for the G-MAX RS.”

The special edition Mustangs will be equipped with a 3.2L Liquid Cooled supercharger, producing 730HP in the street version and a whopping 750HP in the track car. Saleen will be introducing a brand new exhaust system engineered for the Saleen Black Labels along with a competition shifter. The race version also will be equipped with rear-seat delete, a 4-point roll cage, 4-point harness, upgraded radiator, and much more.

Continuing with Saleen’s historic racecar designs, also included will be the Saleen trademark white wheels with custom yellow, black, and white Saleen graphics, along with special badging. Saleen will also be bringing back their Racecraft Suspension, including special camber caster plates.

CLOSER LOOK: TRANSITION S302 BLACK LABEL SC (12-015)

Shipped to Riverside Ford on July 16th of 2012, S302 Black Label SC serial 12-015 had a number of identification variances not seen on other production Black Label Mustangs. A vehicle that was (and is) an emblem/identity transition car that shows both “SMS” and “Saleen” features.

Unique Features:
* Previous generation grill emblem used as fender emblems
* 2008-12 ASC/Saleen, MJA/Revstone era 14″ StopTech brake kit with silver “SALEEN” text
* No trunk panel mounted model identification emblem
* 2010-12 MJA/Revstone S-series gauge cluster
* 2010-12 MJA/Revstone S-series sill plates
* Saleen logo’ed Ford Racing supercharger
* Front bumper serial decal with SMS font
* SMS logo seating with SALEEN logo trunk mat
* SMS dash serial plate

Comparatively, 12-016 S302 Black Label SC shipped to Rich Ford on October 27th of 2012 featured a “SALEEN” logo’ed interior kit, S-logo wheel center caps, Saleen font serial bumper decal and 2005-10 era fender emblems, but used the SMS gauge cluster and sill plates.

From that data we have collected, it appears SMS Limited/Saleen Automotive produced 10 Mustangs* with Kona Blue exterior paint. Kona Blue was offered from model year 2010 and canceled during the 2012 production year.

Finally got to take the beast out on the track. A few friends and I went out to Willow Springs on Jan 30th. It was a blast.

My favorite quote of the day: “I’ve never seen a car rocket away from me so fast!”
