2007 Saleen/Parnelli Jones Limited Edition Mustang

This Stang looks pretty sweet, but at $50 grand with only 370hp, this makes the GT500 look like a bargain. Oh, but it was built by Saleen! That explains the price tag.

New York Auto Show: 2007 Saleen/Parnelli Jones Limited Edition Mustang
Posted Apr 13th 2006 1:15PM by John Neff



Not satisfied with Ford’s own "California Special" Mustang? A muscle car brought to you by Hertz not making your blood boil? Then perhaps Steve Saleen can light a fire under your ass with his new Saleen/Parnelli Jones Limited Edition Mustang that not only does a great job harkening back to the past with visuals inspired by Jones’ own Grabber Orange Boss 302 Mustang from the early ‘70s, but also adds to the Mustang’s moxy with a 302 cid V8 that produces 370 SAE hp and 370 ft-lbs. of torque at a low, low, low 4,000 RPM. Further engine upgrades allow Steve’s new Stang to rev higher than most Mustangs ever will.

Other special touches include 302 valve covers, a black striped “shaker” hood, a 1970 replica rear wing and rear window quarter panels. There are even removable and reusable static cling decals included, one of Parnelli’s famous number 15 and the other a blue oval logo.

Suspension and brake upgrades as well as an interior tweak that invites the orange inside round out the 2007 Saleen/Parnelli Jones Limited Edition Mustang. While we don’t know how many units will be produced, we do know they’ll be sold in the mid-to-high $50,000 range.

Well, the GT500 should start at more than $10,000 less with 80 more horses.

Saleen = Ripoff

If it were much less I'd buy one. I am willing to paint my focus those colours.

So the price will be closer to $60k!!! I'll take a "run of the mill" 400hp S281 SC for $45k.....If I could afford either.
