Steve Saleen has made good use of his time since regaining his namesake brand in 2012. The timing couldn’t have been any more ideal too, because a little over a year after returning to Saleen , the all-new Ford Mustang made its debut. Yep, sometimes, timing is everything.
The aftermarket company known for building sick specialized Mustangs has prepared its first interpretation of the new Ford muscle car . It’s predictably called the 2015 Saleen 302 Mustang and like its predecessors, and it’s sure to have all of the familiar high-performance modifications that Saleen has come to be known for.
The full scope of details haven’t been released as of 7/3/2014 and we only get a teaser photo to look at, plus an accompanying video. But make no mistake, a lot of the technical components are there for the new Saleen 302, including what we expect to be a robust performance tune that adds even more power to the Mustang’s already gnarly 5.0-liter, V-8 engine.
Without knowing how Saleen reinvented the Mustang into the 302, a look at the front section photo suggests that Mustang was given the full Saleen treatment, including improvements to its aesthetic and aerodynamic qualities. The vented hood now has a scoop, something the standard Mustang doesn’t have. Moreover, the headlights appear to have been cut in favor of a longer front grille. Even the lower bumper is restyled to include visible intakes and what appears to be slit-like indicators.
We expect Saleen to divulge more details soon. For now, enjoy the photo and the video. Let your imagination do the rest.
Updated 09/18/2014: Saleen announced that the all-new 2015 302 Mustang will make its world debut Saturday, September 20, 2014 during the Annual Saleen Show. Stay tuned for more details.
