Thanks to Chris, Jess and Pete for their insights.

I like the car Pete did, and it is certainly different from a "standard" Saleen.

It is nice to see some of the things that have historically been left untouched getting addressed with Saleen parts. I am looking forward to the suspension parts list...

That looks hot!

I like the wheel choice and the ride height/stance.

Any other photos of this car?

The SMS car does look like the 05-09 Saleen, as a matter of fact.....it looks like the 99-04 Saleen, the S7, and the S-331 truck. We love the family resemblance. That is why I can always tell its a Saleen from a mile away.

I understand what you are saying though, it really tough since everyone here is so passionate about cars. We are kids of divorced parents and we are going to take sides. That's just how things ended up. I think the SPV Saleen looks good. To me personally, I will never accept it as a "Saleen" car. I think it will be a touchy subject as long as it is branded that way. It's something that myself and others will have to get over. I have definitely tried to be more reserve with my comments.

The dyno vehicle is known as #18 and appears to have been built on a Track Pack GT chassis... the photo vehicle is #03.
