To celebrate Steve Saleen's 30 years in the automotive tuning business, Saleen Automotive will release three special-edition models. Each model will represent one of the Big Three's Pony Cars.
The lineup will consist of a Saleen 620 Camaro, Saleen 570 Challenger, and Saleen 302 Mustang. Only 10 examples of each model will be built, making the SA-30 series among the rarest of special editions.
Saleen didn't give any specifics on what differentiates the SA-30 models from less-collectible muscle cars; they will probably get the same suite of modifications as the "regular" Saleen models, with a few changes to signify their commemorative status.
Each model will cost $95,000--probably not including the cost of a donor car--before options. Saleen offers many customization options, so the final build price of some of these cars could be much higher.
Steve Saleen founded Saleen Autosport in 1983, and went from tuning Ford Mustangs to building the Saleen S7 supercar. Saleen left the company in 2007, and eventually founded SMS Supercars so he could continue in the tuning business. He eventually won back the rights to his own name, and merged the two companies to form today's Saleen Automotive.
While Saleen is best known for its modified muscle cars, the company has bigger plans in the works. Earlier this year, Steve Saleen announced that he plans to put a supercar on sale within two years, picking up where the 2008 S5S Raptor concept left off.
