October 5, 2005 – Anaheim, CA – California International Auto Show: Saleen Inc., the high-performance specialty automobile manufacturer, announced today that all 2006 Saleen models now come with more horsepower under the hood and additional performance for car enthusiasts.

By continuing to improve design, engineering and manufacturing processes, Saleen continues to answer the call from those who have come to expect power and performance from the specialty auto manufacturer. Each and every 2006 Saleen S281 joins a unique blend of highly-engineered engine and advanced suspension technology.  Add Saleen styling that is shaped by the wind, and you have an exceptional competitive breed of high-performance cars.

“Saleen is made from racing and we’ve been designing and manufacturing vehicles for nearly a quarter of a century. Couple these characteristics together and it explains why we’re able to get more power and performance from our S281s – and that’s why our vehicles continue to answer the demands of those who live for performance and speed,” said, Steve Saleen, president and CEO.

Adrenaline Producing S281 4.6 Liter, 3-Valve Coupe 

The 2006 Saleen S281 3-Valve Coupe jumps to an accelerating 330 bhp. The Saleen S281 does not stop there. Saleen’s S281 lower differential gear ratio of 3.73:1 delivers more off-the-line quickness and thrill-seeking responsiveness than ever before. The combination of aggressive power and performance run deep in the heritage of Saleen.  Quarter window design trim and billet aluminum gear shift knob furthers the design attributes that are just part of the distinctive styling available only on a Saleen S281.

The Saleen 281’s Racecraft suspension continues the legacy with new features at a base price of $42,281.

S281 4.6 Liter, 3-Valve Supercharged Awakens the Senses 

Incredible performance is standard in the Saleen S281 supercharged coupe because in 2006 the car rips at 435 bhp. The engine offers 420 lb-ft @ 4000 RPM and the Saleen Racecraft suspension provides a standard Saleen 14” brake system. Together it’s an investment in quality that makes sense for those who truly love to drive and have a passion for life.
