What Is the Saleen S302E Sterling Edition?

A 25th anniversary should be a time for any company to toot its own horn and laud its many accomplishments. In 2008, Saleen Automotive loudly and proudly reminded the world that it had been producing memorable Mustang variants for 25 years when it unveiled the Saleen S302E (the “E” stood for “Extreme”) Sterling Edition to the world.

Saleen S302E Sterling Edition MustangUpon the introduction of this limited edition Mustang, Saleen's General Manager Marques McCammon stated that this high-performance vehicle played an integral role in what he called “the reawakening of the company.” And when you consider that this one-of-a-kind machine offered features such as 620 horses under the hood and plush Alcantara leather seats, who could argue?

Saleen S320E Sterling Edition Features

Much of the Saleen 302E Sterling Edition’s horsepower boost resulted from the addition of a Saleen Series V1 twin-screw supercharger. Other notable features included a forged crankshaft, individually blueprinted forged pistons, high performance camshafts and high flow fuel injectors.

The 302E was also equipped with a six-speed manual transmission, along with a Saleen Racecraft suspension that offered superior control while cornering. And when it came to acceleration, the 302E never failed to make a lasting impression, as it provided the capability to go from 0 to 60 mph in just under four seconds!

The 320E Came With an Extreme Price Tag

Of course all this power and performance didn’t come cheaply. At a retail price of just under $100,000, the Saleen 302E Sterling Edition definitely wasn’t for everyone. Yet this relative inaccessibility didn’t diminish the popularity of the 302E in the minds of Mustang enthusiasts — Complex Rides ranked it #29 on its list of “The 100 Best Mustangs of All Time” in 2011.
