In its most basic configuration, the Saleen Racecraft 420S could be had for less than $40,000.
Here’s a look at what that gets you:
Engine: The most significant upgrade to the Saleen Racecraft 420S is the addition of a twin-screw supercharger to the GT’s stock 4.6L V8. The supercharger’s unique design minimizes intake piping while maximizing engine cooling thanks to a high-flow inlet tube and K&N air filter. Altogether these enhancements deliver a total of 420 horsepower, compared to the GT’s 300.
Steering and suspension: To get the most out of the newly improved engine, the 420S features a custom suspension and steering rack designed to deliver a smoother, more refined ride quality. Components from Saleen’s Racecraft line of suspension products have been incorporated, including upgraded front and rear springs, struts, shocks and an anti-roll bar up front. A set of 18” Parnelli Jones rims has also been added.
Styling: On the outside, the Saleen Racecraft 420S is distinguished by its black-and-white color scheme and large “RACECRAFT” decaling along the lower rocker panels. The inside of the car gets a number of improvements, including silver Saleen tachometer and speedometer gauges, a leather/alloy shift knob and an embroidered Racecraft logo on the front headrests.
