If you've ever heard of the Ford Mustang, then you've probably heard of Saleen. The name instantly conjures up images of sleek Mustangs and the sexy S7 supercar. The company was founded in 1983 under the name Saleen Autosport by Formula Atlantic and Trans-Am Series race car driver Steve Saleen. The company produced the first of its many tuned Mustangs and 1984, and found their niche. The designs became more and more aggressive and bold throughout the years, culminating in the S302 before ending Mustang production completely to focus solely on Mustang performance parts.
