Saleen Releases Gurney Signature Edition Mustang

Saleen has partnered with American racing legend Dan Gurney to develop a limited edition Ford Mustang, which was unveiled today at the New York Auto Show. The car is called the Gurney Signature Edition and it's been designed to mimic Dan's original 1969 Trans Am series Mustang racer. It's characterized by a unique ‘duck bill’ rear spoiler and ‘stinger’ hood and features trademark Gurney Eagle insignias throughout the interior.

All Gurney Signature Edition vehicles feature Saleen's 465hp supercharged 4.6L engine, the same unit found in the S281 model. The cars also come with a host of other performance accessories including a short throw shifter and 3.73 Max Grip rear axle.

With input from Gurney himself, engineers also installed a specially tuned Racecraft suspension, Generation-II Watts-Link rear set-up, and a custom two-tone interior with either red or blue Alcantara seats. Stopping power comes from 12.4in vented discs up front and smaller 11.8in discs out the back. These reside within 20in powder-coated wheels wrapped with high-performance Pirelli Corsa tires.

Production will be limited to just 300 cars and each will feature Dan Gurney's signature on the center of the dash.

  1. Sorry I forgot to count but how many Special/Limited/Signature Editions from the Mustang are now out there?

  2. am i allowed to say that this mustang looks pretty ordinary...

    Give me a Shelby any day !

  3. CK; this is a tuner. so how many tuner editions are there of other GREAT cars such as mercedes and BMW? the mustang was the original tuner car. ford doesnt make many editions of this car. its other people that take it and do something more with it. the mustang was always intended as a blank slate for people to mod.

  4. y does all the special "edition" mustangs have the same shit, racecraft suspension or some sort of sum short shifter and same gearing for the rear.....only difference would be the look....

  5. You are right Chris they are tuner editions but there are not many limited production runs of modded Merc and BMW's out there. I couldn't think of one tuner who makes a limited edition 3 series for example. The last one I can think of is the the E46 CSL. In contrast there must around three or four only from Shelby of the Mustang.

  6. Just read in another blog from New York Ford is releasing another limited production run of the Mustang as "Warriors in Pink". Just 1000 units.^^
