The Ford Mustang is an iconic vehicle recognizable by car enthusiasts no matter what generation is spotted on the road. The ’80s are probably best known for the Fox Body Mustangs, and Saleen was at the helm of these iconic body styles, with wheel, graphic, and bodywork packages unlike people had seen before. If you didn’t know, Saleen has remained at the forefront of all things Ford since the ’80s, and after 40 years, the company is introducing the SA-40 Edition, which celebrates Saleen’s 40th Anniversary. It will also be the last of the S550 Saleen Ford Mustang, as the S650 Ford Mustang production is starting soon.
Saleen Ford Mustang SA-40 Edition: Details
The Saleen Ford Mustang SA-40 Edition will be limited to just ten units and finished in Speedlab Yellow. The car will feature black and white accents throughout the 40th-anniversary interior with an all-new Saleen design tonneau cover with carbon-fiber hoops. While the SA-40 Speedster looks fantastic, it also shares the same genetics as the Saleen 302 Black Label convertible, which hosts 800 ponies under the hood, making this limited edition car exhilarating to drive as well. Additionally, the SA-40 package extends past the aesthetics and includes exclusive wheels, Racecraft suspension, and Saleen brakes.
The first Saleen SA-40 won’t be going to auction. Instead, Saleen has decided to use it to benefit cancer research through the Cruise for a Cause sweepstakes. The Cruise for a Cause allows enthusiasts to win it through donations.
Take the time to admire how spectacular and beautiful the SA-40 Saleen Ford Mustang is. Its unique aesthetics are bound to turn heads even if they aren’t into cars. How many vehicles feature the iconic Fox Body spoiler and carbon fiber hoops behind the front seats that appear to be something inspired by a Hot Wheels car? It’s epic, and with a price tag of around $142,000, we’re sure these things will disappear before you can say “Happy Birthday, Saleen.”
