An­other day, an­other crazy-pow­er­ful Mus­tang … that’s how it looks to be these days, and if that’s how it is, who are we to over­look it? The lat­est in 2018’s string of po­tent Mus­tangs comes cour­tesy of US cus­tom house Saleen, in cel­e­bra­tion of its 35th an­niver­sary.

Saleen Au­tosport was founded in 1983 by car-mad Steve Saleen, with his race knowl­edge fil­ter­ing through to road-go­ing mod­els like the 1989 Saleen SSC, based on a then-new Fox Body Mus­tang.

In the present, 10 of these Black La­bel Mus­tangs — co­de­named ‘SA 35’ — will be made, pack­ing 780hp and 630lb·ft from their su­per­charged five-litre Coy­ote en­gines. While that only rep­re­sents a 10hp in­crease over the stan­dard Saleen Black La­bel Mus­tang, the SA 35 is more of a spe­cial edi­tion, hence the swag of ex­clu­sive fea­tures it comes with, in­clud­ing the cus­tom badges, and ex­te­rior and in­te­rior treat­ment.

All that be­ing said, there has been no in­di­ca­tion of when it will be avail­able, and it is en­tirely pos­si­ble that it will be made ex­clu­sive to ex­ist­ing brand­loyal Saleen cus­tomers.
