Default 11-025 Saleen/Speedlab Convertible

A couple of people have asked me to post pictures of 11-025, aka the "Killer Rabbit".

We went to the open house at PAS in July and stopped to look at a grabber blue RS3 that
was at the Ford dealer near Mark's shop. I was gabbing with Chesnuts about it and Jess
from SPV overheard us. He mentioned that he had a grabber blue convertible back in Troy.
One thing led to another and we got the car late August. It was shipped to Mark at PAS
to have the clear bra installed and I picked it up a few days later.

At the moment, it's a true '1 of 1' since it's the only grabber blue SPV has made.

Stole these from PAS because they are the best shots of the car :D




If I recall correctly, outside of the standard Saleen conversion, it has the 14 inch brake
upgrade, lightbar, adjustable suspension, strut brace and the painted/carbon wing.

The biggest surprise was putting it next to the 99, the 2 colors are FAR more
alike than I would have guessed beforehand... After driving it for a few weeks,
all I can say is I thought the 99 attracted a lot of attention but it has nothing
on the grabber blue, it really POPS in the sun...

I saw this car in person at PAS. It is an awesome car. I was not a fan of the 10-11 models, but the all white one and this grabber blue are impressive in person. I am almost tempted to say that the Saleen cars are more attractive than the SMS models.

Looks Sweet - are you going to get the Tonneu Cover to complete it?

On the fence about the speedster cover. I have a 2 piece for the 99,
hardly ever use it. Since the 1 piece won't fit inside the car or the trunk,
I would use it so rarely that I don't think it's worth it at this point.

Close, Johnny had them backwards... 349 hp and 355 tq. Kevin said it was still climbing
but hit the 155 mph speed limiter... It's a vert so it has the 3.31 gears...
