SALEEN UNVEILS 2021 “BIG OLY” BRONCO CONCEPT

SALEEN UNVEILS 2021 “BIG OLY” INSPIRED BRONCO CONCEPT

AVAILABLE SOON

The Baja 1000 is one of the most grueling endurance races in the world, pitting man and machine against mother nature. To win the race is a feat, to win it twice a monumental accomplishment. One vehicle in particular, “Big Oly,” piloted by Parnelli Jones, conquered the course twice in back to back victories, and has become one of the most well known and respected off-road vehicles of all time.

With the release of the new Ford Bronco, Saleen Automotive is proud to present the Saleen Big Oly Bronco. This homage vehicle not only wears a livery reminiscent of the original, but will also host numerous performance features you’ve come to expect from Saleen.

“With the popularity of off-roading, it makes perfect sense to further our off-road lineup with the Saleen Bronco.” Steve Saleen, CEO, Saleen Automotive

  • Carbureted
  • est. 400bhp at 5,500rpm
  • 5-Speed Manual Transmission
  • Front Independent Suspension – Live Rear Axle
  • 4-Wheel Disc Brakes
  • Purpose built engine
  • A track focused Fox Body Mustang
  • Thought to have been owned by Saleen

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

Upon its introduction in 1979, the Fox-Body Mustang breathed fresh life into Ford’s enduring pony car. After years meandering with the Pinto based Mustang II, the Fox was unleashed from the get-go with a range topping V8 motor, unlike its predecessor. While early iterations continued the trend of speed alluding sticker packages, the Mustang now had the performance to back it up. Advancing into the high-tech 1980s, the range of fastback, notchback, and convertible body styles were supplemented by the introduction of the turbocharged 2.3 liter Lima engine. Reaching its ultimate potency in the much sought after SVO Mustang of 1984, this model superseded even the 5.0 powered GT within the Mustang Range.

With production due to carry on into the final decade of the 20th century, Ford remained diligent in keeping the aging platform up to date and competitive with its Detroit based competition. In 1987, the Fox received a facelift which served to both align the vehicle with the rest of Ford’s corporate identity and clean up the aerodynamic surfaces. The powertrain would continue to receive updates in this time and by the final model year the GT trim delivered a respectable 205hp. Available in just about any flavor an enthusiast could want, it should come as no surprise that the popularity of the Fox platform Mustang continues to grow over time.

This particular Fox has been converted into a potent racer. The car is said to have been built by Roush Racing and acquired from Saleen. Little is known about the specifics of the vehicle, but it looks to have been built with top spec components throughout. With a safety check and some light recommissioning, this beast will be sure to bring endless fun at your local track.

Please note, this vehicle is offered on a bill of sale.

SALEEN GT4 CONCEPT COMPETES IN SRO WINTER INVITATIONAL RACES

High-performance automaker entered its new turbocharged mid-engine car in two professional races, January 18-19 at Thermal Club

Saleen 1 GT4 concept outperformed all vehicles in the GT4 class, while collecting data for homologation process with SRO Motorsports

THERMAL, Calif. (January 21, 2020) – The world’s newest race car designed to compete in GT4 racing made its official track debut this weekend during the second round of the Winter Invitational Series, Jan. 18-19, at the Thermal Club in the California desert.

High-performance vehicle manufacturer Saleen Automotive officially debuted its new Saleen 1 GT4 concept at two professional races, with a factory entry driven by Dominic Cicero, an experienced professional racing driver and head driving instructor at the Thermal Club.

Saleen entered the unique new racing series as an opportunity to further develop its GT4 concept while the vehicle is undergoing homologation approval process with the Stéphane Ratel Organisation (SRO), in advance of the full 2020 GT4 season.

“Our intention with entering these races was to continue development of the Saleen 1 GT4 concept and collect data to assist the homologation process with SRO,” explained Gabriele Cadringher, director of motorsport at Saleen Automotive. “We knew the car would be very competitive within the GT4 class, but the results even exceeded our expectations.”

Competing in both races while still undergoing homologation, the Saleen 1 GT4 concept outperformed every official entry in the GT4 category, while racing alongside larger displacement machines in the GT2 and GT3 classes. Saleen’s number 8 car placed sixth overall in both races over the weekend, proving the new car’s strong performance and durability.

“We’re thrilled with our results this weekend,” said Steve Saleen, CEO and founder of Saleen Automotive. “There’s no greater test for performance and reliability than a live race and seeing our car outperform the entire GT4 field at both races this weekend was gratifying after months of testing and development work. We look forward to finalizing the homologation process with SRO and seeing the Saleen 1 on the grid at racetracks worldwide.”

Saleen’s GT4 Concept was unveiled in October 2019 at the Bellagio Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas as a dedicated racing version of the Saleen 1 production model, with updates designed to comply with GT4 series specifications. The Saleen GT4 concept features updates to the car’s front splitter and fenders, plus new advanced rear diffuser to improve aerodynamics. Per GT4 specifications, a large rear wing is included to add maximum downforce and traction. Saleen’s GT4 concept car also offers front and rear anti-lock braking systems and other GT4-specific equipment.

The Winter Invitational Series by the Stéphane Ratel Organisation (SRO) offers an excellent introduction to SRO’s various series including GT World Challenge, GT Sports Club, Pirelli GT4 America, and TC America. The series includes three events, from December 2019 through February 2020 at the Thermal Club in California. For more information on the series, visit Race.World-Challenge.com.
