One of the most stunning cars in the Mustang Barn’s Museum!!!
Black with Black & Charcoal Leather Interior.
This is Number 6 of the 25 Coupe’s Built!

You really have to see this car in person and then drive it. It is so
Spectacular that it is one of my most favorite cars in the Museum.


The best part is when you stick your foot into the 620hp Saleen
Motor which erupts with an instant release of a conservative 620hp.


Exterior: Black
Interior: Dark Charcoal Leather

I guess that why it’s called “DARKHORSE”

Yet Another Limited-Edition Mustang

Despite numerous executive departures from Saleen in the last month or two, the company is still making new products. This one could be the last special-edition Mustang… until the reskinned, reengineered 2010 Mustang debuts at the Los Angeles auto show in November with a corral full of them.

The Saleen Dark Horse Extreme Edition follows on the heels-or is it the hooves?-of the Sterling Edition and Gurney Signature Edition Mustangs from Saleen. The Dark Horse offers the same impressive supercharged 620 hp as the Sterling, but comes wrapped in its own sinister black exterior. Under the SuperShaker hood scoop is a 302-cubic-inch Ford V8 with Saleen port-matched Series VI integrated screw-type supercharger, forged-aluminum pistons, forged-steel connecting rods and a forged-steel crank. The hood scoop supposedly delivers 0.5 psi of boost all by itself.

Saleen will make only 25 Dark Horses, as many as five of which will be convertibles. Sticker price is $89,995. They go into production in November, with sales starting that same month.

If you don’t have $90,000 of disposable income, consider Saleen’s Racecraft division. A Racecraft 420S offers 420 hp and a few other amenities for “just” $38,000.

Even more affordable will be the coming Racecraft Focus, expected shortly after the new production Ford Focus debuts in 2010. The Racecraft version will come in a normally aspirated version with handling and cosmetic improvements for $20,199, while the turbocharged version will offer “between 200 hp and 250 hp” for between $23,000 and $24,000. Production plans call for 50 to 75 a month, all of them 50-states legal.



Willow Springs International Raceway, Rosamond, CA — September 24, 2008 — by SOEC/Saleen Forums News Saleen CEO Chris Theodore officially presented its latest limited edition Mustang on the grounds of the fastes track in the west. “Dark Horse is the meanest, darkest and fastest Saleen yet,” said Theodore, who only last month took over the top position at the automaker and shifting gears from the job of chief technical officer.

The Dark Horse powerplant is SAE-rated at 620 horsepower with 600 foot-pounds of torque, though it gets a little boost from Speedlab’s SuperShaker supplying exclusive styling while enhancing performance. “The vehicle takes advantage of the ram effect into the SuperShaker air box,” states Dan Agnew, Powertrain Engineering Manager, “It increases pressure in the air box, which adds boost by 0.5 psi and holds air charge temperature relatively constant even with the higher boost.” The Dark Horse powertrain also features a Saleen port-matched Series VI integrated screw-type supercharger, forged aluminum pistons, forged steel connecting rods, and orged steel crankshaft. While the SAE-certified horsepower rating does not necessarily reflect the full benefits of the SuperShaker, it does exhibit itself on the track with neck-wrenching acceleration.

The new Dark Horse combines the power and handling of the Saleen Extreme with Heritage body stylings. Its black body color, flat black exterior graphics, blacked-out trim and black chrome wheels make up the exterior. A Ford navigation system, sport leather seating with Alcantara inserts, and red anodized shift gate and leather-wrapped shifter are featured in the cockpit.

“The Dark Horse provides the capability of extreme horsepower and provides the detailed look our customers expect. By merging the SuperShaker with the Extreme powertrain we have created a no compromise solution for people looking for both performance and classic Mustang looks,” states Marc Musial, Chief Powertrain Engineer.

The Dark Horse’s suspension features everything you would expect from a Saleen, including a second generation Watts-link. The package is impressive, and provides sure-footedness around the tight road course of the Streets of Willow at high speeds, tight turns and aggressive braking. It is considered the most intense Saleen ride yet.

Originally code-named “WM” or the “Widow Maker,” the Dark Horse will be a limited edition of 25 coupes and begin production in November 2008. Pricing is to be announced, but should run in the $89,000-plus range.

SOEC, founded in 1991, is the premiere organization for Saleen owners and enthusiasts, with thousands of members worldwide.

IRVINE, CA — September 19, 2008 — SOEC/Saleen Forums News — Saleen’s 2009 lineup is getting a new limited edition Heritage-based “Dark Horse” model, and it’s promising to gallop its way to Southern California next week.

This new moniker will feature traditionally aggressive Saleen Heritage designs, including the new SuperShaker intake. Said to produce 620-horsepower and 600 pounds-feet of torque, the stout 302 should be able to breathe effortlessly with its shaker hood.

The Dark Horse will also feature unique interior stylings, and will be produced in a limited edition of only 25. Be sure to check back late next week for photos and details.
