Let the horsepower wars begin !
With its new 2015 Mustang S302 Black Label. When it was announced last year

’s 5.0-liter Coyote V-8 was pegged at 640 horsepower. But as the car spun on the turntable before us at its official debut in Los Angeles last weekend, Saleen announced that the screw-type supercharger actually brings the Coyote’s output to a monstrous 730 horsepower and 600 lb-ft of torque. As with the Hellcat, the S302 Black Label’s horsepower-per-dollar ratio is impressive—especially for such a rare car—at $73,214, including destination. Furthermore, Saleen says it will pay the estimated $2600 gas-guzzler tax on orders placed before the feds finish their paperwork, which it expects to happen by mid-April. For an even more screaming pony car deal, the aforementioned S302 Yellow Label uses the same supercharger and produces nearly as much power (715 horsepower and 595 lb-ft of torque) and does without some of the Black Label’s body, interior, and suspension bits for just $53,484, making it what Saleen considers the ultimate sleeper Stang.
