watching the streamed event.

Could they have picked a more tighter location to place a car and a bunch of people

As for the car, it looks ok. oh no.. molly is now hamming it up.. jeese

anyways the car looks ok, dunno about debuting in yellow but who knows.

740+50 bhp is great. enough to put those hellcats in check.

Those things are not only selling like hotcakes, dodge has been ordered to stop taking orders because theyre getting far too many. Not bad dodge.

As for the new black label i would day visually i was hopeing for more, not to come off as a hater, (im not) i was hoping Saleens flagship car would be a bit more exotic. Indeed it was mentioned the body panels (maybe) carbon fiber. and though the design is mostly standard mustang it does appear saleen may have revised and augmented the sculpted design. so until we get some real photos its hard to tell. Still, im personally always for Saleens looking very different than standard mustangs. I mean aside from the performance if your paying a big coin you want to at least look better than the guy with the base stock car. now dont get mad.. i didnt say it looks stock but i think you know what i mean. Thus far i see new front and rear facias and side skirts, hood, rear spoiler and light treatment. and thus far it doesnt come across camaro-ish. but again we need to see real pics. Ive fallen in love with the new Shelby GT350R, the Front facia design is hardcore!, looking far better than the standard stang. this i hope saleen has achieved as well. Saleens of all models should never look like a standard a fare mustang. Theyre far better cars and should always look the par. I cant imagine how far the bar must be raised with this car. Though i would say i didnt see any carbon ceramic brakes. we shall see..

Ahh.. better pics... now i can see far more.. yep i looks really good.
Way to go Saleen. congrats.
This will be a new chapter at saleen. Thankfully.
And the BASF paint is awesome.
That livestream feed did the car no justice.
Now lets see what it can do on the track. After all, if a 2014 boss 302 only marginally surpassed the performance of a 1998 Saleen s351 then god know what this thing should accomplish.

Doesn't look bad. I just don't think it looks like a Saleen. I'd personally rather take a white label. .....what is up with the challenger hood and "Three" "Zero" "Two" all spelled out?? =p

Car looks great. I really like the front end, and the added body color B pillar is a nice touch. The concave 5 spokes are awesome. I am still not sold on the S550 body style though.

I think they did a great job. Cudos to Saleen on this model. Need to see under the hood and some independent performance numbers. Two things I think could still use work. I am not sold on the Salern rear panel and question the gauge pod.
