Saleen and Ford have worked together since 1984 to produce even faster Mustangs. For the 2015 model year, Sleen has presented the S302 Black Label Mustang that allows the Mustang to challenge the brutal Challenger Hellcat. With over 700 hp under its hood, and a upgraded suspension system, the 2015 Saleen Mustang does actually have the advantage over the Hellcat. Alongside all that power, it also comes with a factory-backed warranty, allowing the buyers the same peace of mind that comes with the Hellcat.
As far as the exterior goes, Saleen spent time in redesigning the Mustang’s bodywork and creating the 2015 Saleen Mustang Black Label, improving its aerodynamics to come with the perfect balance of low drag and high downforce. In the end, the car came out is 1.5 inches longer up front and almost 2 inches longer in the rear, with a bigger airfoil to increase the downforce. Specific improvements include a functional center-induction hood, custom front fascia with a high-flow air intake, a front air vane with brake cooling, a high-downforce front splitter, a unique back fascia fitted with exhaust exits, and the recognizable Saleen back wing. A lot of carbon-fiber body components have also been installed, in order to keep the weight of the car low. As far as the wheels go, silver-painted five-spoke alloy wheels measuring 20-by-10.5 inches are there, and they are wrapped in 275/35R20 Z-rated rubber on the front and 275/40R20 Z-rated tires in the back.
The cabin comes with a few modifications as well. The 2015 Saleen Mustang S302 changes include new leather seating with Alcantara inserts and contrasting chevrons. Furthermore, there is also a Saleen steering wheel badge, Steve Saleen’s signature on the dashboard, a set of white gauges, illuminated Saleen doorsill plates, and a group of Saleen badges that finish off the interior, while a plaque on the dash shows the model’s build date and serial number.

The real magic happens under the Saleen Mustang 2015 hood, where a retuned version of the Ford Coyote 5.0 l V-8 lurks. With a twin-screw supercharger, high-performance recalibration, high-volume intercoolers, 54-pound fuel injectors, a cold-air intake, and a Saleen-tuned exhaust system, this engine is capable of pumping out 730 hp and 600 lb-ft of torque.

A 6-speed auto transmission with paddle shifters comes as optional.2015 Saleen Mustang accelerate from 0-60 mph for only 3.5 sec.with top speed of amazing 200 mph (Est.).
With all this amount of power, comes the need for an upgraded suspension. So, 2015 Saleen Mustang Black Label fitted its S4 suspension package, which comes with high-rate front and back springs, stiffer front and back shocks, customized front and rear sway bars, and stiffer sway-bar bushings, while the S4 fully adjustable suspension comes as an option.
When talking about 2015 Saleen Mustang brakes, there are 4-wheel disc brakes with 13.9-inch vented rotors gripped by 4-pot calipers up front and 13-inch vented rotors out back. But the customers can also choose the 15-inch slotted and drilled front rotors with 6-piston calipers, and 14-inch slotted and drilled rotors in the back, with 4-pot calipers.
