No.

It's a riced out from the factory Focus with sloppy suspension and crappy brakes.
OOh, but it has a number on the bumper. Push the 'collector' status of the car and you might find a sucker.


/sarcasm


There really isn't much of a market for them, that I've ever seen. Sure it's a rare version of the car, but you really don't get much in the way of performance from them, as you'd normally expect from Saleen. I guess if you're looking for a starting price to sell it for, look up the price of a comparable Focus and add $2,000. Let the interested buyer talk you down from there.

I got suckered into buying one in 09. Lol I put mine on ebay tonight so hopefully someone wants it. I needed a car for good gas mileage which it does get but other than that its just not practical.

If I was in the market for another Focus I'd be all over the Saleen. I love the way they look.

No. Saleens are worth more in a junkyard.

I'll give you $50.

Found your ebay add. Car is in great shape. I don't think you'll have any problem selling it at all. I bet if you put it in the BST section here you'd have it sold in no time.

Just some constructive criticism, if you're serious about selling it and trying to get the most money for it (why wouldn't you), clean it real good first, inside and out, and take good pictures of it. It can make such a big difference.
