Picked up the following beast today:-
More pics/info in reply post............
The car is a 2005 Saleen/Ford Mustang.
For more information check out www.saleen.com
The car is a 4.6l V8 producing 325BHP, but is remapped for our fuel so probably a tad a more with 340lb-ft torque. Saleen quote approx a 4.6s 0-60 time though at the moment I am taking it very slowly as I am getting used to the left hand drive side of it all first.
It was a little scary this morning bringing it back from up in the hills with snow covered roads but thankfully I got home in one piece.
Although I've not tried pushing the car yet when I went on the test drive this thing handles amazingly which is no doubt thanks too all the suspension modifications made by Saleen as they change pretty much everything.
For those who wanna listen to the V8 here is a quick WAV I did tonight, the sound is not so great as the car was in the drive and close to a wall so its a bit muffled, but here you go:-
Ide/Revs upto 4000rpm - Right click & Save as
Tomorrow I hope to give the car a good waxing and interior a good clean just hoping the weather stays nice and warm, please no more snow!! Then I shall spend several hours getting used to the left hand drive and the car itself.
YES YES YES YES YES!!!!
I am now in love with you!
Very nice car there.
Looks fast standing still.
Pure automotive sex that...I remember seeing the clip you recorded of it, it sounded superb.
Says it all
That looks awesome
It looks SO evil. Does it make children cry when you drive past them?
Shame they dont offer a right hand conversion, looks mean though
Whats it like to drive, being a left hooker?
I havn't noticed Mr.Gibbo post in ages, and he makes comeback in well, !
Well I had to fill it up on the way home and everybody in the petrol station started coming over and asking what it was and as soon as I got home neighbours were coming over and again asking what it was, LOL.
P.S. Added a WAV sound clip of it, will get better done soon (now working)...........
Audio link is dead btw
EDIT: You edited quick!
Sound Clip isnt download
Very nice car though!!
Awesome car, deffo the sexiest on the forum
You gotta start saving for the Shelby GT500 which is being released later this year too!
That is just mad mate...
How much did that set you back and roughly how long do you reckon it's gonna take to spend the same amount again in petrol !
Looks gorgeous, although not keen on the wheels and sun strip.
What performance like in comparison to other similar sized/powered cars?
I grew up driving on the right side
Left Hand drive cars rule. Also we should drive on the right.
