    The side profile and back end look better than the front, imo.

    Whats under the hood? Just another blown 3v making ~400 hp like all the other "special edition" S197s, or something else?

    Not sure about that one yet--I'd imagine it'd have to be more power than mid-400 range, though. Saleen already offers a car at that level (The 435 S)

    I can't wait to have a 2011 sleeper... The ONLY mod i want to do cosmetically is replace the GT badge on the side with 5.0 and get the rocker stripe with GT right behind the front wheel... I think that would be sick!

    That actually looks quite nice though still more boring than the new Camaro.

    Nice another version of the mustang that does the same thing they all do with bolt on brakes, suspension, and a supercharger. I will pay $50,000 more for it!

    I know a mexican with a 2002-2004 (i forget what year exactly) saleen s281 and it's pathetic, hardly any faster at all than a regular gt, and probably slower being that he has a big ass sub box in the back with giant speakers :o

    All that said...aren't they going to release a bigger engine soon for the gt's? won't that make the 281 smaller than whatever the new engine is supposed to be?

    there is no such thing as a "sleeper" mustang. That's like saying "Oh my lamborghini is a sleeper because it has stock wheels."

    When most people see a mustang, the first thing they think is "i wonder what kind of mods they have" not "I wonder if they have any mods."

    well sleeper in the sense that it's not flashy cosmetically... as in underwhelming kind of how the bullit pulls it off
