This is no ordinary Mustang.. This is a Saleen Extreme S302E Sterling edition. One of the baddest mustangs ever built, period. Everything inside and out is ultra high quality, and that of a supercar. It is extremely limited. There were only 25 of these cars produced, 6 of them were destroyed, 9 of them are not in the country. Making this one of 10 here in the states! There are two others available at this current moment being sold by the Mustang museum. Both of them are asking $97k. We have been lucky enough to get our hands on some of the ‘regular’ S302E Extreme mustangs, and they usually go for mid fifties with some decent mileage. We are offering this car at an ABSOLUTE steal. These cars were MSRP’d at $99,950, but many sold for way more money originally. This one sold for $120k new. This is Saleen & Mustang history. This car is in MINT condition, inside and out. All original. It comes with TWO leather Saleen jackets, the 16 ounce sterling silver plaque, and everything else you would hope for. Don’t miss out on this one of a kind super-car.

This is the S302E- STERLING DR #26. Although this car is listed as #26, it is the very first Sterling to be produced. This car was built, and immediately sent to Saleen Speedlabs to create the ultimate race car. This car produces 835 HORSEPOWER at the engine, which creates over 700 wheel horsepower. This car can HOOK it also. After the Sterling was given to the Speedlabs, over $130k was invested into the car to turn it into what it is today. This car is non-duplicatable, but if it was, it should cost close to $200k to produce. It comes with TONS of extras as well, including the original sterling wheels, Saleen seats, and a bunch more! This car is programmed to run on race fuel, or can easily be programmed for 93 octane as well. This car is so powerful it can do a wheelie!!! This is the ultimate mustang, with every top quality part possible thrown at it. The seats are carbon fiber Saleen S7 seats, which cost well over $5k.. if you can even find a set for sale. There are many more details for this car, but I don’t want to end up with a book here. This is a 700 mile, 1 of 1 SUPERCAR being offered. This can easily be a your show car or weekend warrior. Don’t miss out on this VERY special Mustang.

When Saleen (the company) turned 25 in 2008, it produced limited-edition Mustangs to commemorate its Silver Anniversary. Twenty-five Sterling Edition S302E (E for Extreme) Saleen Mustangs were built, plus one special”DR” drag race package, taking the 26th spot.

After the Sterling Edition appearance package was added by Saleen Speed Lab, A high performance JDM 298ci was dropped in. The power plant is fortified with a forged-steel crankshaft, and JDM-spec Manley rods and pistons, which produce 9.8:1 compression under the JDM/M2 Race Systems CNC-ported Three-Valve cylinder heads.

The intake charge a Saleen twin-screw supercharger with 17psi and separate cooling system.

To ensure traction, Saleen struts and springs support the nose, while BMR K-member cradles the engine. Saleen shocks and springs hold up the rear, and a BMR anti-roll keeps the car level. Bogart wheels and Mickey Thompson sit on all 4 corners.

The ultimate Mustang, to many, is a Saleen. More power, more attitude, and more exclusivity. If that sounds like a great investment, it is. Special edition, Saleen-built cars hold their values much better than standard Mustangs. If you’re looking for the best of the best, the top dog in the Saleen chain, it’s here: This is the umber 1 car of a mere 25, 2008 Saleen S302E Sterling Edition. 620 Horsepower, a complete, exclusive-color repaint with painted stripes, a bespoke interior and wheelset, and even a 16 ounce sterling silver commemorative plaque on the dash. The odometer shows only 1452 miles, there are no stories or issues, and the car is perfect. Sterlings originally sold for $100,000 and up, and after the original sale, the value often topped $150,000.

Twenty five years ago, Steve Saleen realized he could do a better job building high performance cars than could a major manufacturer. Then, as now, he utilized the Ford Mustang as a starting point before tweaking the suspension and adding in power. The finished vehicles are not simple bolt-on “tuner” models–Saleen is a licensed small volume manufacturer of vehicles, and a Saleen’s title reflects this. Every five years Saleen has released a commemorative edition for their anniversary which showcases the best technology available for the Mustang chassis. This time around, the 25th (sterling) anniversary, the ante’s been raised to an underrated 620 horsepower, wrapped in special paint with a unique interior and wheelset. Appropriately, this rocket ship’s been named the Saleen Automotive SA-25 Sterling Edition with a production run of only 25 copies–how’s that for exclusivity?

POST-SALEEN SALEEN

By: BOB GRITZINGER on January 28, 2008
Original Article: AUTOWEEK, VOL. 58 ISSUE 4,

$100,000 Mustang Honors Company’s Silver Anniversary

Saleen will offer a commemorative 25th-anniversary Mustang as its first product of the post-Steve Saleen era. The 25th Anniversary Sterling Edition Ford Mustang S302E has a supercharged, 5.0-liter, 620-hp, 600-lb-ft V8, plus custom 20-inch wheels, special suspension and brakes, 25th-anniversary interior and exterior badging and a parts catalog’s worth of extras.

It costs $100,000- if you can get one. Only 25 will be built, with deliveries beginning in March. Owners get a first-class trip to Troy, Michigan, for an executive-guided tour of the plant (where Dodge Vipers are painted and Ford GTs were built), a Saleen leather jacket, a custom car cover and a photo album documenting the car’s build.

Company founder Steve Saleen resigned last year (“Saleen Minus Saleen,” AW, May 28, 2007). Investment firm Hancock Park Associates bought it in 2003. HPA added Michigan-based American Specialty Cars to its stable in 2007 and merged the two specialty manufacturers.

SALEEN KICKS OFF THE YEAR IN STYLE WITH THE REVEAL OF THE 25TH ANNIVERSARY “STERLING EDITION”

DETROIT, MI (Jan. 17, 2008) – The phrase “Saving the best for last” just got an exclamation point. Just when it appeared all the North American International Auto Show reveals were complete, Saleen Automotive unveiled its 25th Anniversary Sterling Edition Ford Mustang.

“At Saleen, automotive passion is more than a catch phrase, it is a lifestyle,” said Saleen General Manager, Marques McCammon. “Showcasing our Sterling Edition Ford Mustang at today’s Sterling VIP Preview is a demonstration of the things that reflect the way our buyers live. They have a high sense of style, a love for all things performance and an affinity for the exclusive. That is the very theme of the VIP Preview event.”

The Sterling VIP Preview was a night full of announcements from Saleen. Among the more significant was the announced move of the Saleen World Headquarters from Irvine, California to Troy, Michigan. “This is a strategic move for the company,” said Saleen CEO, Paul Wilbur. “Our Troy facility has one of the most sophisticated low volume paint facilities in North America. When you combine that with the phenomenal automotive talent pool that is available in Michigan, it is a natural step.” The executive stated that Saleen will maintain an advanced engineering and administrative staff in the “Golden State” to support ongoing operations, but vision would be driven from Detroit.

No night with Saleen is complete without product and the Sterling VIP Preveiw was no exception. To commemorate 25 years of producing high performance specialty vehicles, Saleen unveiled the Sterling Edition S302E. This 25 unit limited edition version of the Saleen flagship car will deliver the patented blend of Saleen style, performance and exclusivity that can only be rivaled by Saleen’s own S7.

“The Sterling Edition S302E is the cream of the crop,” said Saleen General Manger, Marques McCammon. “Saleen is about details and we left none to chance when we created this car. From the hand painted graphics, to the 16 oz genuine sterling silver serialized dash plaque, this car has it all. This is the very definition of a 100-point car.”

Exterior

Each badge is brushed billet, milled with the 25th Anniversary wreath. The car rides on unique 20 inch forged aluminum alloy wheels with a state of the art DurabrightTM corrosion resistant coating. The hand painted gunsight exterior accent aims your attention from the rear of the car to the 25th Anniversary wreath that adorns the hood. The Saleen engineered front carbon wind splitter and rear air diffuser were designed to enhance the aerodynamics of the vehicle. The vehicles sub 4 second 0-60 performance is arrested by massive 15 inch cross-drilled vented rotors that are also unique to the “Sterling Edition”.

Interior

The interior of the car is wrapped in luxurious black Alcantara and leather, with silver accent stitching on the door inserts, dash and center console. To commemorate the 25th anniversary, a genuine sterling silver serialized medallion adorns the instrument panel. To insure that the driver can always stay connected, it includes a navigation system and iPod connector.

The car’s 620 horses are called into action at the simple push of a button by virtue of the console mounted push button starter, offered for the first time on an E car in this special edition model.

Lifestyle delivery

The “Sterling Edition” is packed with luxury and style that does not stop with the vehicle. In fact, the customer will be welcomed to the brand in a way that is genuine Saleen. “Every Sterling Edition S302E buyer will get the VIP Treatment,” says Saleen VP of Sales, Mitchell Gadd.

In an extreme lifestyle statement, Saleen announced that every buyer of the Sterling Edition will receive a first class round trip visit to the plant for a guided tour, dinner with Saleen executives, a photo album and portfolio of the car, letter of authenticity, a serialized car cover, and Saleen apparel. “Saleen is an experience and the Sterling Edition is a highlight of that experience,” said McCammon.

“We are anticipating a momentous year, beginning with our “Sterling Edition”. We are working on some very exciting projects and are prepared to deliver exceptional, innovative vehicles to the market,” said Chris Theodore, Saleen’s Vice Chairman and Chief Technical Officer.
