Introducing the 2010 Saleen S281, a model from Saleen Performance Vehicles based on the 2010 Ford Mustang.

The S281 comes with the Mustang's 4.6 liter V8 engine fitted with a VI.5 twin-screw supercharger and a dual-stage intercooler from Saleen. Power output is 485 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque (623 Nm), managed through a 5-speed manual gearbox. The S281 also features a limited-slip differential.

Suspension tuning is also part of the S281 package, with single-rate springs at both the front and rear, nitrogen-pressurized front struts and damping adjustable rear shocks. A performance-grade front sway bar with pivot bushings is fitted too.

The S281 rides on 7-spoke, 20-inch alloy wheels wrapped in Pirelli P-Zero Rosso performance tires.

On the inside are leather sport seats with ultra-suede inserts and sporty touches added to the dash and gauges as well as the steering wheel and center console. Contrasting Saleen logos are placed on the door panels and door sill plates.

The S281 first premiered at the SEMA auto show in Las Vegas earlier this month.
