2010 Saleen S-281. Best Saleen Ever?

Saleen Releases More 2010 S-281 Pictures

In my opinion this Saleen is rocking. I think I would take this over any other Saleen that has come out. I love it.

It is definitely sweet. It does look badass, the rear is much more tolerable thanks to its cleaner, more unique look with the blackout panels, exhaust, and overall design.

I've always been a fan of the old 98 S351, but this one could top it...we'll see when they release more info.

my concern is steve saleen left and did an SMS model, and the saleen looks quite close to this~ I wonder why they styled it so close.

I've never been a fan of the Roush or Saleen editions, but I have to say this car is gorgeous and I would love to have it in my driveway.

Re: 2010 Saleen S-281. Best Saleen Ever?

looks good, but given a choice i would go with the SMS.
remember the reason steve saleen left is because he didnt feel that the company was being inovative at all. they just kinda kept rehashing the same stuff.
just based on that i would think the sms is superior.

but looks HOT lol

Re: 2010 Saleen S-281. Best Saleen Ever?

the main reason steve saleen left and came up with sms was money. he was locked in with FORD to do mustangs and trucks as much as i hate to say there is a huge market in the dodge challenger and the chevy camero that he could not tap into. by starting a new company that mods mustangs, cameros, and challengers he will make a fortune. the reason the sms mustangs looks so close to the saleen mustangs was in the agreement when he sold the company and if you all remember when the saleen company now said they would no longer honor the warrenty steve stepped up and said sms would a very stand up thing and it helps with his marketing the challenger and camero potental customers as well. the saleens/sms are super nice looking but lack the handling of a roush or brute power of a gt500,which for the money its hard to beat the package FORD put together although any of the 3 i would LOVE to say i own...
