ZR1 Killer?

Press Release:

SALEEN INCORPORATED REVEALS LIMITED EDITION “DARK HORSE” VEHICLE

It has been an incredible year for Saleen, Inc, America’s premiere niche vehicle manufacturer, with the elite 25th Anniversary Sterling Signature Edition, the unveiling of the S5S Raptor at the New York Auto Show, production of the Dan Gurney Edition, release of the Racecraft brand and the much anticipated reveal of the 2009 Dark Horse Extreme Edition. With a limited production of 25 coupes being built, this has become a classic round up of high end performance at Saleen.

The Product
The Dark Horse provides 620HP with 600 ft.-lbs of torque with Speedlab SuperShaker option supplying exclusive styling while enhancing performance. “The vehicle takes advantage of the ram effect into the SuperShaker air box,” states Dan Agnew, Powertrain Engineering Manager, “It increases pressure in the air box, which adds boost by 0.5 psi and holds air charge temperature relatively constant even with the higher boost.”

Styling
This 25 unit special run combines the power and handling of the Saleen Extreme and the exclusive Heritage body style with interior and exterior cues found only in the "Dark Horse”. The elite Flat Black Exterior graphics and identification, Saleen serialized engine plaque, Navigation System and sport leather seating with Alcantara inserts adds to the exquisite style of this limited edition vehicle.

Content
“The Dark Horse provides the capability of extreme horsepower and provides the detailed look our customers expect. By merging the Super Shaker with the Extreme powertrain we have created a no compromise solution for people looking for both performance and classic Mustang looks,” states Marc Musial, Chief Powertrain Engineer.

The Dark Horse includes:



Saleen Port Matched Series VI Integrated Screw type supercharger

Forged aluminum pistons

Forged steel connecting rods

Forged steel crankshaft


The composition of the Dark Horse provides the most intense Saleen ride yet.

Well that may make people picture a cross between a Challenger and a Corvette, so maybe "Possible ZR-1 Competition" would be more fitting. It is fine as is though, will probably get more attention.

The next ZR1 killer is going to be the next rediculous Ferrari tryrannicar. The "Dark Horse" doesn't have anything going for it except those wheels. Pretty tasty.

Lower HP in a heavier car...hmmmm let me think about it.....yeah...not even close. This car would never even get close to the ZR1 in a straight line or around the track.
