On my way home from the office last evening, I came up behind a brand new Saleen/Mustang coupe with "640 hp" stenciled prominently on the back. Under just mild acceleration is literally shook the ground. :jawdrop I tried to get the driver's attention to ask about his car, but lost him in traffic.

I know that Saleen has three versions of its S281 Mustang-based coupe, ranging from 325 hp up to 500 hp. However, I can find no reference to a 640 hp version. Can anyone enlighten me as to what I saw last night? :-?

Thanks,

Don't know what it is, but it is obviously a heavily modified car. Saleen's most powerful model, the S281E, is no where approaching 640HP, and given Saleen's past record for being optimisitc with their HP ratings, it probably doesn't make the 500 it is advertised at. My guess is somebody has slapped a huge Centrifical on it, or twin turbos to get that kind of number. And given that the 05's rods are made of glass, it's got to be built motor.

Mine's got 647 to the tires, but it is quite heavily modified. :D
