Striking design and a dramatic iconic visual statement?
All that they designed was a hood.. lol You have got to be kidding me. I could pick out 50 Camaros on this site that look way better than his "Striking design and a dramatic iconic visual statement" What a joke.

My guess is this car will retail for close to 60k or better with all of the options showed in the pics and because of the Saleen name plate. The rendering looked nice, but that is not anything close to what the final product is. They did not put much effort into the appearance of this car at all. If it had been a mustang they would have gone all out with custom bumpers and GFX kits as they always have. I have always liked the look of Saleen Mustangs but this is nothing more than a pathetic attempt of bolting on parts that weren't even made by them and attaching a brand name to it so they can sell them for a high price. Really the only thing custom is the hood and there are alot better looking ones on the market IMO. It was as if they looked at the rendering and said to them selves, "man that looks like alot of work. Forget it lets just buy other peoples parts and bolt them on instead". lol

Well, if the car stickers for $60,000 or more, you won't have to worry about seeing them on the street. Nobody will pay that much for a car that isn't any better than a ZL1. If you add the 2SS option and the RS option, then that car will sticker for about the same as a very nicely equipped Grand Sport Corvette. I don't see a market for a car like that. By the way, that body kit would add well over $10,000 to the price. I can't see anyone spending Z06 money for a car that can't out-perform a ZL1. Time will tell...

620 so that just indicates the stock 6.2? I much prefer my car over that.

Took long enough for this Camaro to be released...
Good for charity, bad as far as pricing.

Don't see the value beyond $55k

Well over 10k to the price would be crazy for such minimal work.. Your probably right though, thats what they would charge but it would not have cost much to actually make the car look like the rendering. The rendering really just looked like a modified Camaro bumper. There is a new vendor on this site who made his own bumper and had molds made and is selling them for $750 and it looks to be a very good quality product.. In reality the rendering would not have been very expensive to produce but I agree if they did anything custom they would have charged an arm and a leg for it. They just got lazy and hoped the name plate would make them sell. Saleen really needs to stick with Mustangs..
