Saleen is easily one of the most recognizable names when it comes to Mustang Performance. The company has been around for decades, building high power and highly collectible Mustangs. But Saleen doesn't go it alone. The have partnered with many other big names in the Mustang world. While now longer owned or operated by Steve Saleen himself, Saleen continues to build new Mustangs for a new world.



Saleen has recently announced an all new vehicle, the 2010 Brenspeed/Saleen Speedlab race car.

The basis for this car is the redesigned 2010 Mustang. This means the engine was the 315 horsepower 4.6 liter V8, rather than the all-new 412 horsepower 5.0. But that doesn't matter anyway, as Saleen ditched the old engine in favor of a new one built from the ground up. The basis for the engine is Brenspeed's own B302 all-aluminum short block. This engine is purpose built for superchargers, and Saleen is happy to oblige.



By topping the Brenspeed engine with a Saleen series VI.5 supercharger, and letting the masters tune the engine, Saleen is claiming its Mustang makes over 600 horsepower. All that power requires some updated styling, and Saleen fits the Mustang with one of its own Speedlab body kits. This is a big debut for Brenspeeds aluminum block engine, and we think it is a great fit.
