Car of the Week: Saleen S302 Black Label

What’s better than a 2015 Mustang? A 730HP Saleen 302 Black Label.

With over 30 years of experience in both racing and manufacturing vehicles, and a history of building some of the best Mustangs available on the road, it was only a matter of time before Saleen built a Mustang as comprehensive and technologically advanced as the 2015 302 Black Label.

“Since I started building cars in 1984 my goal has always been to go above and beyond where anybody has been before”, said Steve Saleen. “This will by far be the most refined and advanced Mustang we have built to date.”

With a 5.0L Coyote engine and a twin-screw supercharger, produceing the most powerful production Mustang yet at 730 horsepower and 600 lb-ft of torque on 91 octane gas.

The S302 has been outfitted with springs, shocks, swaybars, and bushings, all raided from the S4 parts bin, offering complete performance and handling for both on and off the track. Impressive 15-inch dimpled rotors and multi-piston brakes bring the car back down from hyperspeed. “A brake setup of this caliber is perfectly fit on an ultra-high performance vehicle like the Black Label 302”, added Etzelsberger.

Keeping the Black Label planted to the road are 275/35R20 tires in the front and 275/40R20 tires in the rear. These are wrapped around your choice of  of Saleen 20 inch 5-spoke alloy wheels, available in multiple finishes.

The S302 includes a full set of Saleen badging and custom Saleen paint. And to further set this apart from a run-of the mill Mustang each of will get a unique Saleen VIN. And you can top it all off by having your new ride hand signed by Steve Saleen.

The 2015 Saleen 302 Black Label will have a starting price of $73,214. You can order online now over at saleen.com, but we’d expect that all examples have already been spoken for pretty quickly.

“[W]e have always known that we wanted to create the most powerful production Mustang we have ever built”, said Sven Etzelsberger, V.P. of Engineering. “I can happily say that we have accomplished this goal with great success.”

Yes you have Sven. Yes you have. And we congratulate you for it.
