2010 SMS Supercars 460 Mustang

Steve Saleen feiert zusammen mit dem neuen 2010 SMS Supercars 460 Mustang sein 25. Firmenjubiläum und natürlich auch 45 Jahre Mustang. Da ist es nicht verwunderlich das Steve wiedermal einen Traum von einem Mustang auf die Straße bringt, welche in Sachen Leistung, keine Wünsche offen lässt. Den neuen SMS Mustang wird es daher in zwei Varianten geben. Den normalen 460 und den 460X Mustang. Die kleinere Version hat einen Kompressor geladenen 4.7L V8 welcher 470 PS an Leistung auf die Straße bringen wird und der 460 wird mit dem 5.0L V8 und 655 PS ausgeliefert. In Sachen Schaltung gibt es beim 460 ein manuelles 5-Gang Getriebe und beim 460X ein manuelles 6-Gang! Beide Varianten kommen mit umfangreichen Umbauarbeiten, so wurde wie meistens bei Saleen die komplette Front erneuert inklusive einer neuen Haube mit seitlichen Lufteinlässen an der Hutze, Front- und Heckspoiler, Diffuser und neue 20 Zoll Felgen kommen ebenfalls zum Einsatz. Abgerundet wird alles dank des neues Fahrwerks, neuen Bremsen und einem neuen Interior.

Press Release:

Steve Saleen ponies up, celebrates 25 years in the business and 45 years of Mustangs with 2010 SMS 460 Mustang

Orange County, California. (April 17, 2009) Steve Saleen, his name being synonymous with fast Mustangs, would not be Steve if he kept his hands off Ford’s newest pony. On the occasion of the 45th anniversary of the launch of the original Mustang in 1964, and in reflection on his 25 year association with America’s iconic sports car, Steve celebrates with Mustang aficionados from around the world in launching first sketches of the 2010 SMS 460 and SMS 460X Mustangs at the 45th Anniversary Celebrations in Birmingham, Alabama.

Instantly recognizable as Steve Saleen’s work, the new SMS 460 Mustangs feature a host of visual and technical highlights that set them apart from the crowd. “I previewed many of the features of my newest Mustang with the 25th anniversary car I showed last year,” says SMS Supercars CEO and President Steve Saleen.

The front fascia treatment, the SMS Red Butterfly Air Induction HoodTM, the front and side splitters, the rear fascia and diffuser with the high down-force rear wing showed the way Steve Saleen is looking at Mustangs today. “You have to go with the times. While the Mustang remains an icon, Ford has done a very good job with the 2010 model. I wanted to interpret it using my signature to create the latest Steve Saleen version of this American favorite.”

The SMS 460 Mustang offers a 4.6 liter V8 engine featuring a minimum 470 hp and 427 ft-lb of torque, while the even more powerful SMS 460X Mustang engine with all new internal and headwork delivers 655 hp and 600 ft-lb out of the enlarged 5.0 liter V8. Both use the new (patent pending) SMS 296 Supercharger presented last week at the New York International Auto Show. Transmission options are a 5-speed automatic or 5-speed manual on the 460 or a 6-speed SMST manual on the top of the line 460X.

Performance for both cars is expectedly striking. The 460 Mustang accelerates from 0 to 60 in the low 4 seconds, while the 460X manages the same in the lower 4’s. In addition to engine output, handling, roadholding and braking play an equally important role. The 2010 SMS 460 Mustangs feature Steve’s signature Watt’s linkage suspension with all-new geometry. New SMS brakes front and rear deliver impressive stopping power to match the jaw-dropping performance.

The interior with all-new Alcantara and leather SMS performance seats features the patented Signature Series chevron stripes. Dash and interior panels are covered in hand-stitched high-quality leather. Multiple seat chevron and SMS unique exterior colors are available.

More details about Steve Saleen’s latest Mustang will be revealed in the spring of 2009, deliveries are expected to start mid-summer. Customers interested in buying a SMS 460 and SMS 460X Mustang can either contact SMS Supercars directly at www.smssupercars.com or by calling (714) 400 2121.
