2015 Saleen 302 Mustang Preview
First look at the 2015 Saleen 302 Mustang and some rumors about what to expect from the next-generation tuner car.
Saleen is teasing their upcoming 2015 Saleen 302 Mustang with this head-on rendering. Styled by Saleen Design Director Sean Smith, the aggressive new look is a big departure from the run-of-the-mill 2015 Mustang GT and frankly makes the Mustang look tame. And we had just gotten used to the new look.
What we do know is that the 2015 Saleen 302 Mustang will sport a new front fascia that gives the car a wider, meaner look and puts it in line with the rest of of the pony cars on the market by using a full-width grille that's not interrupted by any body colored bits between the headlights. No doubt it was influenced by the '69 Boss 302, and that's alright by us. By the looks of the rendering, the Saleen package will include a new hood with a wide, shallow scoop that continues the lines from the Mustang's factory hood bulge. Also in store is a lowered, track-focused suspension and, if Saleen's history with tuning Mustangs is any indicator, at least 450hp. Ford has already told us that the new 5.0L for the 2015 Mustang GT is much better than the already impressive 5.0L we all love, so our hopes are high. Expect supercharged versions as well.
