2003 SA-20


With the Unveiling of the SA-20

IRVINE, Calif., August 29, 2003 — This year marks the 20th anniversary of Saleen, Inc., manufacturer of premium, high-performance vehicles such as the Saleen Mustang, Saleen/Bonspeed Thunderbird, Saleen Focus and Saleen S7. In celebration of this event, Saleen is offering the ultimate in limited edition vehicles: the SA-20 Speedster. The vehicle will be unveiled to the public at Saleen’s 7th Annual Car Show at the company’s Irvine facility on Saturday, September 13th. The SA-20 epitomizes Saleen’s philosophy; “Power in the Hands of a Few” with only ten of these special edition vehicles being produced.

The SA-20 Speedster, based on the Saleen S281, will be available as a convertible only and will be powered by a 375 HP, 4.6L V8 featuring a Saleen Series IV Screw Type Intercooled Supercharger and Saleen PowerflashTM performance calibration system. The ten vehicles will be factory-custom painted Pearl White with its Five Spoke 18” wheels painted to match. The SA-20 will feature Saleen’s brand-new, never before seen 20th anniversary Tonneau cover with integrated light-bar design. In addition, the vehicle will feature 20th anniversary black and yellow graphics, Saleen’s lightweight, vented, composite hood, S281 Extreme Wing and S281 Extreme Rear Fascia with center exhaust. The interior of the SA-20 will feature 20th anniversary special edition Saleen leather sport seating, console plaque, custom floor mats and custom door panels.

The Saleen SA-20 will mark the third time Saleen has celebrated one of its anniversaries with the release of a limited-edition vehicle. The company celebrated its 10th anniversary with the SA-10 and its 15th anniversary with the SA-15. Each anniversary car was produced in limited quantities of ten. Both cars are extremely rare and highly sought after.

For customers who order the SA-20 prior to Saleen’s 7th Annual Car Show on September 13th, purchase includes airfare for two and one night’s lodging to be present for the public unveiling of the SA-20. SA-20 owners will also dine with Steve Saleen where a private unveiling of the vehicle will be held the evening before the car show.
