“Since regaining the Saleen brand, I really want to bring it all together with the heritage that Saleen is known for”, said Steve Saleen. “With the current Saleen [302] Mustang model it provides all the right features to bring back and update the S351 model.”

Power for the Saleen 351 Mustang comes from a Saleen engineered 351 cubic inch V8 engine which will produce 700-hp and 655 lb-ft of torque when paired with the Saleen 296 supercharger system. The engine is mated to a 6-speed manual with a high performance Saleen clutch system

“Everything about this project has been mindful of the goal to create the most potent Mustang on the market”, said Al Wagner, V.P. of Engineering. “I think we have certainly pushed the bar in the production Mustang segment with our 351 offering. Once the project came together I couldn’t help but thinking; if the 302 mustang is using a coyote engine, the 351 is definitely the gray wolf of the class.”

Sounds pretty beast to us.
