Awesome, probably more of a recruitment or PR tool than beat cruiser, but it's cool.

Saleen Automotive Delivers 730HP Saleen Mustang Police Vehicle

CORONA, CA--(Marketwired - May 10, 2017) - Steve Saleen, CEO of Saleen Automotive, Inc. (OTCQB: SLNN), delivered a Special Edition Saleen Mustang Police Car to the Riverside Police Officers' Association in Riverside, California, which represents the Riverside Police Department's frontline Officers, Detectives, and Sergeants. This specially built Saleen Mustang will be used to bring awareness and attention to their fallen officers and promotion and avocation of the Police Officers' Assistance Fund, which provides financial assistance to officers' families in Riverside and surrounding communities. It will also be a tool in recruiting new officers, engaging the community, and generating a cohesive camaraderie with Riverside Residents.

The Saleen Mustang boasts the latest in technology starting with a whopping 730HP, powered by a twin-screw supercharger with a unique exhaust. It sports a fully revised suspension for extreme cornering, and wears Saleen big brakes, giving it ultimate stopping. The interior is fitted with Saleen gauges and necessary police equipment with full police lighting built into the cockpit for sports a revised front end, Saleen rear wing, and is equipped with the necessary siren and external speakers. Steve Saleen stated, "This is one of the fastest police vehicles ever built. It is one of the most exciting projects Saleen Automotive has been involved in. If you are attempting to elude the police in the Riverside Department's jurisdiction, beware; your chances of getting away are quite slim."

Detective Aurelio Melendrez, who also serves as vice president of the Riverside Police Officers' Association, said, "We are excited and pleased to receive delivery of this Special Edition Saleen Mustang. It brought incredible smiles to those in the department who were on hand to take delivery. We are honored and thrilled that Saleen Automotive has shown their support of the Riverside Police Officers' Association/Riverside Police Department in this way." Melendrez stated that the majority of police officers' deaths across the country are attributed to automobile accidents; after driving the Saleen Mustang he felt the vehicle was the best accelerating, handling, and stopping (police) vehicle he has ever driven. The technology that led to this vehicle's extreme performance is something he hoped to see become used in a more widespread format, to improve officer safety and vehicle response. The Riverside PD employs roughly 350 men and women. Drivers of this particular Saleen Mustang have been specially trained to handle the speed, cornering, and overall handling. As with any tools assigned to department employees, only those qualified will handle the car. To date, Steve Saleen has trained a handful of department employees. Melendrez feels Saleen's continued work building police vehicles and training officers with this exceptional technology would keep officers safe. He is hopeful to continue a collaborative effort between Saleen and Riverside PD.

New Saleen S302 Mustang RPOA Memorial Vehicle


The Riverside Police Officers’ Association Assistance Fund is pleased to announce our recent partnership with several prominent businesses in the Inland Empire. With the help of our partners, we were able to create a memorial vehicle to increase awareness of the Law Enforcement members killed in the line of duty and to celebrate their lives.

Without the right team to bring it together, the concept of the memorial car had previously been little more than a lofty goal and one that would take a significant investment in time and resources.

But then in early 2016, Steve Saleen, owner of Saleen Automotive headquartered in the city of Corona, approached RPOA with the idea of creating a Model S302 Saleen Mustang as the memorial car. Steve started working with his partners in the racing community to move the project from concept to reality. Saleen Automotive personnel donated their time and expertise over the next year to design and outfit a base model 2016 Ford Mustang, which was provided by Fritts Ford of Riverside.

A Riverside based business, West Coast Lights and Sirens, immediately offered to assist with the project. Danny Gonzalez, in cooperation with Federal Lights and Sirens who donated their equipment to the project, installed the equipment and wiring for the car.

The memorial car continues to be a work in progress. It was recently back at Saleen Automotive for the next phase of the project. The goal has always been for the car to be completed for a public unveiling at the 2017 Riverside County Peace Officers’ Memorial Ceremony on Monday, May 22, 2017.

The memorial car is intended to raise awareness of the risks faced everyday by the men and women who wear the police uniform, and those who have made the ultimate sacrifice. With awareness comes the financial assistance for those injured or killed in the line of duty.

The Riverside Police Officers’ Association Assistance Fund is a 501(c)3 charity that was created in 2011. It is a separate entity from the RPOA and is governed by a 5-person board of directors. Its goals are to provide financial assistance to law enforcement officers injured or killed on duty, to promote youth programs, and to support the elderly and veterans in the Riverside community.

On Friday, May 5, 2017, at 9:00 a.m., the memorial car will be taken to the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department’s Emergency Vehicle Operations Center (EVOC) for testing by Steve Saleen and other professional drivers. All news media are welcome to attend. The EVOC location is at 18901 Institution Road, San Bernardino, CA 92407. Any media inquiries should be directed to rpoamail@sbcglobal.net.
