Supercharged Saleen S281 #07-0014



If you thought you couldn't have a Saleen Mustang because you didn't want a manual transmission, Saleens are available with an optional automatic transmission. If you thought a performance car had to be a stick to be fun to drive, you haven't driven a Supercharged S281 Saleen Mustang with 475 hp. No manual shifting means no lost time between shifts and no hitting the wrong gear at crucial moments. Don't knock what you haven't tried. You won't get tired knees when you’re stuck in that annoying traffic jam. Just relax and enjoy the instant, smooth, powerful response. 


Out of 1,628 2007 S281 Saleen Mustangs produced, this one is #0014. Its Saleen ID is #07-0014. To get the low number, it was ordered on August 14, 2006 and produced at the Irvine, California Saleen, Inc. facility. It is a supercharged grabber orange speedster with Saleen leather seats. It has optional automatic transmission, 20” Pirelli tires, 7 spoke chrome wheel and tire upgrade, HID headlamps, and speedster package (light bar and tonneau cover). From the Saleen authentication letter: “The records also indicate your Saleen is 1 of 1 with these exact colors and options. There were 1,628 manufactured in 2007. Of the 1,628 produced, 415 were S281 S/C. 115 convertibles, and 8 were produced in grabber orange and 3 were automatic.”  Out of the whole 2007 production of 1,628 S281 Saleen Mustangs, 176 were automatic, 52 were Grabber Orange, and 227 were convertible.

I have 19 photos of the car on the production line at Saleen in Irvine, California. I also have 18 photos of the car coming off the truck when it was delivered to the Ford dealer. A feature article showing the photos was in the Saleen Owners and Enthusiasts Newsletter, Summer 2007 Edition. A four page feature article appeared in the April 2010 Mustang Milestones, presented once a year by Mustang & Ford Trader.


The dash and tonneau cover have been autographed by Steve Saleen. The inside trunk lid has been autographed by Liz, Molly, Sean, and Clint Saleen. It has appeared as a display car at numerous shows with Steve Saleen. The color Grabber Orange with the tonneau cover attracts admirers from a distance. It stands out in the crowd for its awesome, distinctive look. 


The car is a S281 Saleen Mustang Convertible with an extremely desirable low ID number, #14, and photo documentation that is generally unavailable.
