So, is it a black label or a yellow label? Listed as yellow elsewhere.

Gotcha. I have found a few other S620 owners that are looking for other cars. One of them has a white 2012 #11 iirc.

It is I believe, technically, #11 of 13 and the only Yellow Label for 2012. The bumper # is 07, but the "label" under the hood is car 11. I talked with the Saleen Authenticity team who then talked to Sean and that's what they decided. They think my bumper number and another white Camaro may have been swapped. I ordered the Authenticity docs from Saleen to make sure and Steve signed it the document. Lending to the confusion is that it isn't signed..the car. I'd love to see the cars made before mine to see if they're as cobbled together as mine.
Either way, it is pretty "rare" and a fun conversation piece.

The butterfly hood, front spoiler and chevron leather seat covers are Black Label features. I would contact Saleen again.

I would say that you own a Black Label.

It is a Yellow for sure. It has a yellow label tag under the hood. 2012 was kind of a cobbled together effort.
My little tag/label under the hood has a yellow stripe on it, and I believe that I've seen one from a Black Label and it has a black stripe.

I think Dave is correct on this one. Pretty sure the stripe is yellow on all the tags. Can you put up some pics of the dash badge and the engine bay plaque?

Here ya go. I do know that the car dyno'd at what I'd guess is Yellow Label levels at the rear. It made a little under 500 rwhp, but did have a boost leak.

All of the first run SMS tags were Yellow. Regardless of the Label series.

The dash plates were color coded after the 2012 model year. But not all cars have dash plates.

I do have the reproduction window decals or whatever and they don't really specify yellow vs. black. I am kinda reluctant to post those, but I did email them to SOEC registry.

It is all interesting for sure. It had Saleen confused for a bit. It doesn't have a dash plaque or signature. Saleen's records weren't great. Like we concluded, it wouldn't make sense for it to be cloned...but I was worried and curious. They had to involve Sean Saleen to help Lisanne Alba figure it out. I do know a Black Label or X car is right hand drive and in Australia from what I remember.

Mine has less badging, different wheels (mine are Enkei Falcons with Saleen caps, I think), and the steering wheel has a bow tie like a normal Camaro.
