    The black things in front of the front tires appear to be functional also. They look like a vent of some sort from the close up pics of it. Once you know what it is, it looks better :) I still don't exactly know what the black indents on the rear bumper are yet though :confused:

    See the other thread. I explained the cut outs in the rear skirt.
    With this car, form follows function on alot of this car. For example, the front air dam was designed with air to air intercooling in mind. Front brake cooling ducts are also possible.

    i have posted on every roush thread and will do hear i well. But with not quite as much prejudice. I love this car but I do agree that the grill should be black or maybe even chrome??? any thougts there?? also I am disappointed that the hood is a simple scoop. one would think that roush racing would cowl and put some scoops on it. Kind of like the Mach II hood for the 99-04. A hood like that would be awesome. But like i said before, I am aleready in line to get one. great car.

    Tell me you dont like this I cant figure out how to get up the pics go to saleen.com

    The first thing to capture any viewer’s attention is the S281’s dramatic styling—boldly new from stem to stern.

    Its signature long hood and short rear deck emphasize the Saleen muscle under the bonnet and its traditional rear-wheel drive. Those proportions also give the Saleen a ready-to-launch-itself-down-the-road appearance even when the S281 is standing still.



    Saleen has its own “design language” and you’ll notice a family resemblance between the S281 and the Saleen mid-engine exotic S7 supercar in the shaping of the lower front grille opening, the rear spoiler and the rear diffuser. These features are designed for optimal aerodynamics and top-speed performance, objectives the S281 achieves because of lessons previously learned from extensive wind tunnel testing and racing of the S7.
    Up front are integrated turn signals along with available HID (High Intensity Discharge) headlights. And one finds it hard not to notice the Saleen alloy rims. They are big, wide and clothed in equally aggressive rubber that completely fills the prominent wheel wells. They shout “speed” and “style” with a capital S.

    Under the hood of every S281 is a high-performance 4.6-liter V8 engine. In the 3-Valve model this engine produces 325 horsepower. In, the supercharged S281 SC the horsepower leaps to 400. And for the S281 E, which will be introduced next spring, the engine produces a mind-boggling 500 horsepower. Now you know why the E in the name stands for Extreme.


    Out of sight, but not out of mind are the components that endow every S281 with handling, steering and braking performance that beg comparison with Corvettes, Porsches and BMWs. Features like Saleen Racecraft springs, shocks and anti-roll bars. And available 14-inch brakes, the same size as on the Ford GT, a car that Saleen helps assemble with Ford in Saleen’s Michigan manufacturing facility.

    Inside the S281 you’ll find a focused driving environment that is as much as part of every Saleen as its Saleen engine, suspension and its race-proven aerodynamics. The seats are specially bolstered for greater support when cornering. The Saleen high-grip racing-inspired brake and throttle pedals, ideally positioned for easy heel-and-toe downshifting, and a Saleen short-throw shift lever are the makings of a world-class driving experience.

    The interior also features unique Saleen gauges, trim and S281 floor mats and a special Saleen numbering plaque on the dash. S281 SC and E models also include a Saleen twin gauge pod with readouts for supercharger boost and air temperature.

    Pricing for the 2005 Saleen S281 starts at around $38,000 for the 3-Valve and just under $45,000 for the supercharged model.
