281 Motorsports Saleen Speedster

With most of the Ford Mustangs here at the SEMA show in Las Vegas are either brand new or classic models, this Saleen Speedster from 281 Motorsports really stood out from the crowd. It also happens to be one of the cleanest New Edge Mustangs we’ve ever seen, and we love the Saleen SA20-inspired paint scheme with BASF Pearl White paint. The real beauty of the car is underneath the car, though, with a full Maximum Motorsports suspension setup and some custom pieces like hand-fabricated radiator support. Just as much attention has been given to the engine, with a fully-built 302ci stroker V8 fitted with a Vortech V7 JT Trim race supercharger system.
