2013 Saleen Pics.

http://urbanacitizen.autoconx.com/Ad...-SD/#phototabs

Like the rear trunk / tail light filler. Like the front Grilles. Honestly the upper grill looks just like a GT/CS grille with the Saleen logo in place of the Tri Bar... I like the GT/CS grill though so... I honestly expected a more race inspired body kit and the rear wing doesnt go well because the rest of the car isnt as for the lack of a better word, different... I was really looking forward to seeing a body kit that was extended, wider, lower etc.

You're right, that one does seen a little bland but there are also more than on model too. Check this one out. May be more of what you were expecting. http://mustangsdaily.com/blog/2012/0...n-302-mustang/

If it went buy me on the road I wouldn't even realize it was a Saleen. They have always had a more aggressive stance and the tail IMO on the new one doesn't look right without other body modifications.

I agree it looks just like the 5.0 they have always put some kind of body kit on them I'm not sure why they didn't this year. I'm not a fan of it how it looks in 2013 recent years it looked really good.

It does not even look like a 2013. The nose looks shorter/stubbier like the 2012, while the 2013 is more elongated looking. I completely agree with you guys. If I were to drop money on a specialty model, I would want it to BE special-just basing on looks.

It just doesn't look like a special edition at all like the past years. Even the roush kinda looks plan.

No, it looks EXACTLY like a 2013. Just with a grille, big wing, some stickers, and wheels. Very little was done cosmetically. After all the years with body kits I wonder why they aren't bothering now?

Might have to do with Steve Saleen owning the brand again. If you look at all the models from when he was in charge you'll notice they weren't too radical.

Meh.... I'll stick with my 2011, at least it doesn't look like a stock 2013.
