Saleen SMS muscle car. Anti-Timpost.

Even as the Detroit Big 3 limp along almost as shadows of their former selves, Steve Saleen wants to keep the magic going on some of the classic models those automakers have recently revived in hopes of recapturing the romance of old.

Last year, Saleen launched SMS Limited and quickly went to work on creating highly-tuned performance versions of the Ford Mustang, Dodge Challenger and the Chevy Camaro.

The first to go in production this month are two versions of the SMS Dodge Challenger. An SMS 570 Challenger and an SMS 570X Challenger will come with superchargers that can squeeze between 500 and 700 horsepower out of Chrysler's 5.7 liter V8 Hemi engine. SMS Limited will also be tweaking aerodynamics and suspension to go with the additional power flow and also promises more attention to interiors with premium leather and other top-notch components.

The SMS 570 with 500 hp will be priced at 60,000 US dollars. The 570X, with an additional 200 horses, will cost 10,000 more.

Saleen will announce later this year details on the 460 Mustang, based on the 2010 Ford Mustang. According to the Detroit News, the 460 will come with SMS Limited's patented Red Butterfly Induction hood topping the supercharged 4.6 liter V8.

Details on the SMS Chevy Camaro should follow soon afterward.

These SMS Limited vehicles can be ordered through Ford, Chevrolet or Dodge dealers

Awesome. I hope they all get driven, and not just stuck in some investment collector's garage though.

Of the aftermarket mustang companies I always thought Saleen had the best styling and all around performance. Be interesting to see what they do with other platforms.

Berz out.

First that "Cobra-Jet" and now this.

No wonder these guys are going down the shitter. Who thinks this is a good idea?

I trying times like this they should simplify their model line with LOW COST and RELIABLE (hahahah) vehicles. Not overpowered cock mobiles.

I think you missed the boat here. The big 3 aren't making these cars, a private company called SMS is making them, and then selling them through the dealerships. Pretty good move on both parts really. The big 3 gets to sell hot cars for which they shelled out no R&D money, and a smallish company gets a nationwide sales network.
