2014 SALEEN | FOLLMER EDITION: Recently debuted at Laguna Seca Raceway this past summer, The GF Edition Mustang remembers one of the most successful racing drivers of this era, George Follmer. Follmer has been described as the go-to wheelman when the pressure was on and races needed to be won. The Saleen | Follmer Edition Mustang is styled from the #16 1969 Boss 302 Mustang that George Follmer campaigned the same year. Coincidentally, 1969 also marks the first year Ford Motor Company debuted and campaigned the Boss 302 Mustang. Mechanically advanced Saleen technology can be found throughout this 2014 Saleen | Follmer edition including a naturally aspirated 495+HP (estimated) 302 high revving 4-Valve engine, track tuned suspension, and a 6-speed manual transmission. As part of the Saleen Heritage Collection, the Follmer Edition Mustang is an instant collectible with a production run of only 250 units being produced. Saleen vehicles wearing the Heritage Collection banner reflect the same vintage racing attitude of their respective counterpart of yesteryear. Paint color schemes are offered only in the same color identity as the original, forming the backdrop for the Special Edition graphics that set each vehicle apart from the rest of the pack. Each interior is composed to give the driver the same excitement and feeling of running hot laps before a big race, but with modern comforts. Exterior aerodynamics are representative of the beloved cars that race fans still reminisce about today. The Saleen | Follmer Edition also comes complete with modern engineering features as standard equipment. Possessing the same authenticity of the race-spec motors of the 1960’s & 70’s, powertrain development includes naturally aspirated specifications for each GF Edition vehicle produced for maximum power on-demand. Suspension is balanced for proper weight distribution, and Braking systems are specifically setup for each vehicle from a race-minded viewpoint. Each of these modern Saleen engineered solutions are carefully integrated to each Heritage Collection vehicle to create a well-balanced machine that could easily find itself enjoying a day turning laps at the track or taking a spin around the block.
