At the renowned event dedicated to the Blue Oval - Carlisle Ford Nationals – which took place a week ago, Saleen Performance Vehicles, the aftermarket expert of Mustang rides has unveiled its latest masterpiece, the 2011 Saleen S302.

The refined pony ride in the first Saleen vehicle for 2010 and draws its basis from the recently premiered 2011 Ford Mustang 5.0. Just like all previous creations of the famous muscle car specialist, the new Saleen S302 is limited-edition, high-end ride aimed at enthusiasts who are looking for an exhilarating driving experience, with refined drivability for real-world road conditions. Available in coupe and convertible variants, the fresh ‘Stang boasts an exterior retrofitted with top-end detailing, bold additions and optimized aerodynamic components. It sports a re-styled grille and front fascia, new Saleen extended rear fascia and trunk lid with a simple, elegant, integrated wing.

In the power compartment, the S302's 5.0-liters V8 block is slightly boosted and delivers 425 horsepower and 395 lb.-ft. of torque, sent to the rear wheels through a six-speed manual transmission and a limited-slip differential with 3.73:1 final drive ratio.

On the inside, the Saleen ride's cabin ambience is fitted with new, leather sport seats with Ultrasuede inserts, highlighted by chevron-like Ultrasuede red tabs in the seatback bolsters, and unique treatments of the gauges, steering wheel, center console and shifter. Furthermore, contrasting Saleen logos in the door panels, and Saleen logos in the door sill plates illuminate when the doors are opened.
