02-0041 S281 Extreme Speedster
02-0041 S281 Extreme Speedster

Offered here is a 2002 Saleen Speedster S281-Extreme showing only 791 one owner miles on the odometer. As any Saleen aficionado well knows, very few Extreme Speedsters were produced. This one of only 20 fitted with a 425 horsepower Saleen built S281E Engine. Unlike the stock Ford motor featured in the S281-SC, the S281E engine was machined and up-fitted for severe race duty by Saleen.

02-0041 S281 Extreme Speedster
02-0041 S281 Extreme Speedster

The MSRP tipped the scales at $70,637.00 in 2002, or 30% more than the Corvette Z06 offered the same year. The dollars went to racecar engineering and fine tuning prep for a car that was more than track capable, the Extreme was track ready right off the showroom floor. This particular example is signed by Steve Saleen himself, on the glove box. The overall condition is a near to new a 15 year old car can be. The most notable blem can be found on the passenger side fender call out (see photo). The owner has a pair of NOS fender callouts that you can keep or install as you see fit. This beauty is everything a true collector is looking for, one owner, garage kept, fully documented, freshly serviced and ready to run!

CUSTOM PAINT EXTREME CONVERTIBLE (07-0050E) HITS THE OPEN MARKET

PHOTOS: 07TURBO

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.

PHOTOS: ANGEL MUNIZ

01-0643 S281 Supercharged Speedster
01-0643 S281 Supercharged Speedster

Angel Muniz of New York is a lifelong “Saleen Freak.” Having owned two previous S281 “New Edge” coupes, Angel recently upgraded to a modified Supercharged Speedster. As a child, Angel loved reading car magazines, wishing he could one day own a vehicle worthy of a centerfold feature. For the past year Angel was on the lookout for a “special” Saleen Mustang and found 01-0643, an S281 Supercharged Speedster with a rare optional Ford white leather interior and white top. Angel’s surprise bonus to this find was the history of 01-0643 being a former Street Thunder magazine and calendar car.

VIDEO: RICHARD GONZALEZ AND HIS S281 SC (06-1316) MEETS LOU COSTABILE

From our friend Lou Costabile.


Published on Aug 6, 2016

On “My Car Story” we’re in South Barrington IL at The Arboretum of South Barrington for the Supercar Saturdays Event on 8-6-16.

We’re looking at a 2006 Ford Mustang Saleen S281 CI Engine Supercharged in Torch Red Paint.

The car’s Owner is Richard Gonzalez. Richard is with his son Gino today at the car show. Richard purchased the car in 2015. He shares he likes the car because it was a “Dream Car” for him. His Son Gino likes it because, “It’s Red, Fast & Really Rare”.

I’m glad to see dreams do come true.

CLOSER LOOK: S281 (96-0002) RETURNS STATESIDE

PHOTOS: JAEDA CROSBY

96-0002 S281 LOA
96-0002 S281 LOA

Currently, Saleen Automotive offers a dozen custom exterior paint colors on their line of performance vehicles. Though in the late 1990s during the SN95 era, there was one available non-factory hue. A single color that could represent green, blue, purple and gold. This lone color was Extreme Rainbow, the initial optional Saleen custom color developed with partner BASF.

BASF introduced a line of “Extreme Colors” in 1996. Of these first three Extreme hues, Rainbow was the most varied. Officially offered by Saleen as an option for the 1997 model year, they would go on to produce a total of 19 vehicles in this chromatic paint before this color disappeared after the 2009 model year.

One such vehicle is 96-0002, this special SN95 S281 coupe is among the earliest Saleen Mustangs to showcase this unique paint option. Current owner, Jaeda Crosby, located 96-0002 through a fever-pitched search for an original Saleen Extreme Rainbow Mustang. Given both the limited production and limited availability of this color, Jaeda had few leads and numerous dead-ends in trying to locate a vehicle in the United States. Perseverance sent Jaeda to the United Kingdom where #02 had lived since 2004.

Produced during October 1996 and shipped on the 25th of that month, #02 features an interesting list of early Saleen optional equipment. Beginning with the newly introduced S281 coupe, #02 hosts the following: Heat extractor hood, Speedline magnesium wheels, tire upgrade, 13″ front brake upgrade, and Saleen/Recaro leather seating.

For the 1996 model year Saleen produced 444 Mustangs, 424 were S281 models, 413 were based on the GT chassis, 191 were of the GT coupe body, 177 GT coupes featured 5-speed manual transmissions and 27 GT coupes with manual transmissions featured Opal Grey interior. Of those, 4 had the Saleen/Alcon brake upgrade, 20 were equipped with the optional 3.55:1 gears, 3 had the Tire Upgrade while 96-0002 was the lone S281 coupe, GT chassis, Manual Transmission, Opal Grey interior vehicle to receive the optional Saleen vented hood, Saleen/Recaro leather seating, Speedline Magnesium Wheels and Optional Custom Paint.

Of the 444 street Mustangs produced for the model year, one was painted a Saleen custom color. 96-0002 is this car.
