Cool looking! What are the details so is there a planned race campaign, imsa? Or world challenge? What do the letters in the serialization stand for? The 2 cars how do they differ (one street, one off road?). Sorry if the questions are answered in the video, but it's an hour long. Not much info in the release posted above.

I believe the "P" is for prototype or pilot or preproduction. The "T" for track version, maybe. My guess.

One is a track version. The other is a street version. Both cost the same price. Word is 30 street units. Five track versions. Track version has larger brakes, race seats, roll bar, rear seat delete, suspension differences, fluid coolers, large rear wing and a different tune.

Somehow that sounds contradictory.

From our friend at Saleen Automotive, General Tire and Rick Titus.

How about Steve Saleen putting laps on the all-new Saleen 30th Anniversary Mustang (track edition) today at Pacific Raceways. Our new G-MAX RS provided plenty of grip!!

I assume the track version has a VIN, is it still street legal? Looks like it still has most if not all of its interior (open trunk pic shows it hasn't been stripped)

Street model with track car attributes. Like a GT3 RS. VIN, airbags, interior trim, etc. Like a club racer that is legal for street use.

I was interested in buying one but the front-end is horrible looks nothing like a Mustang. It looks like a Camaro nose and why I didn't purchase a Black Label either. If this car had the nose like the Yellow Label it would be far better looking
