Steve Saleen has announced that he and his new company, SMS, will design, engineer and manufacture a new family of high-performance Mustangs. The 2010 Signature Series SMS 460 Mustangs won’t make their debut at the 2009 Detroit Auto Show next month – nor is SMS handing out any pricing, volume or shipping details for the high-performance ‘Stangs.
However, Saleen and SMS felt like they had to be one of the first ones to show that they are already at work with modifying the 2010 Ford Mustang with a press release and an image of Saleen.
Based on the 2010 Ford Mustang GT platform, the SMS 460 Mustangs will feature an SMS Supercharged 4.6L engine that produces 475 to over 600 horsepower. Saleen says that both models will feature extensive design refinements and performance innovations, including the patented SMS Red Butterfly Induction hood and a full compliment of SMS ultra-high performance components.
The drivetrain, suspension, aerodynamics, tires, wheels and interior will also receive an upgrade.
