The 2004 Saleen is a true muscle car by modern-day standards. The base-model S281 produces 290 horsepower at 5,100 rpm. The S281 S/C, which is the supercharged model, yields 375 horsepower at 5,800 rpm. Lastly, the S281 Extreme, which has upgraded cylinder heads and larger fuel injectors, produces 445 horsepower at 6,000 rpm.
Torque is the twisting power produced by the engine and relates directly to the acceleration of the vehicle. The 2004 Saleen S281 produces 390 pound-feet of torque at 4,100 rpm. The S281 S/C model bumps the torque to 415 pound-feet at 3,500 rpm. The, heavily upgraded, S281 Extreme produces 450 pound-feet at 4,500 rpm.
The original msrp was north of $60k. I remember one at a car show with the window sticker still on. Nice yes, worth 60k, no.
