ENGINE
Saleen 2.3L DOHC 4-cyl 150hp engine
150 ft. lbs. torque

Nitrous compatible elements

RACECRAFT Suspension

High performance Pirelli tires 215/45ZR17 (Front) 215/45ZR17 (Rear)
Strut tower brace
Saleen valve stem caps
Saleen aluminum alloy wheels 17 x 7 front and 17 x 7 rear

STYLING & INTERIOR
Saleen sport cloth seats

Saleen close ratio shifter

Saleen shift knob
Saleen N2O graphics and identification

It should be as badass as an SVT but with more styling cues & nitrous ready. The engine is the 2.3L out of the PZEV & it has stock internals. The engine can't handle very much nitrous oxide!
The base price is 25g which is enough money to buy a WRX. It has a handful of options which can get you to 30,000 which is enough for a Cobra, Evolution, RX8, or 350Z.

I agree, if it is a 2001 it must be a regular focus that someone put a body kit on. As far as I'm aware, the saleen focus is a new thing this year, correct me if I'm wrong
