Sure I wish i had his job, but it doesn't stop the fact that he is a complete a$$hole.

I agree Saleen shouldn't be allowed to touch a Camaro. leave that for the cars that actually need an upgrade, like mustans.

True, but if you own a company that boosts the power and looks of "cars" in general, you never jab at cars that might give you business. It sends the wrong message to potential buyers. All he needed to say is that he built the Camaro in Transformers. Sure, the people would have booed but he didn't have to add "Only in a movie will Saleen build a Camaro".

it doesn't matter how old that video is.

Personally, I'll just customize my own car.

At this point I'm even planning to hand embroider my headrests. Thats right, I'll be doing it. Don't need to pay anybody. I just need to learn to embroider first.

Ok SALEEN i relate that name to much to the 'stang, I would love to see what the 'Maro would look like. But I would not give them my money. I rather have Callaway or Nicky touch the 'Maro than Saleen. Just my 2 cents.

So true. They let him slap his name on the rims and the seats and stake his claim to fame? All of a sudden he is a Chevy fan now? Give me a break.

I do not think saleen is a fan now. I just doing it for business. I think it will be good thing for the car. They will start to make parts for the car and it may be good.. (or not) But also it will make the GM more money to take some mustang owner to camaro. I think overall it a good thing. I just hope he does not mess it up!

Info about the challenger. Will add to top too.

Steve Saleen's fledgling new company, SMS Supercars, is getting ready to officially debut its first production car and has released a few more photos and information regarding the 570 and 570X Challenger. According to the new press release, the two models are targeted to start at $60,000 and $70,000, respectively. Yes, that's quite a chunk of change, but SMS is making it worthwhile with an extensive list of upgrades. Starting with the powertrain, the SMS 296 supercharger pushes massive amounts of air to the 5.7L HEMI, and true enthusiasts will be glad to know that a proper 6-speed manual transmission will be doing the shifting. Both models also get a high performance suspension, exhaust, 20-inch wheels, and 14-inch front and 12-inch rear brakes. For the exterior, SMS replaces the front and rear bumpers, side skirts, and hood, and adds a rear spoiler. The 570X model also receives carbon fiber front and rear splitters, a carbon fiber diffuser, and a rear wing that replaces the spoiler. The interior receives upgrades as well, including two-tone leather sport seats, leather door inserts, a leather grip shifter, 200-mph gauge cluster, and auxiliary gauges for the supercharger. Each vehicle will also be personally signed by Steve Saleen. Follow the jump for the press release and check out the gallery below.
