Developed to celebrate famed racing driver George Follmer and his 1969 Mustang Boss 302 race car, which was also displayed at the Laguna Seca Raceway, the 2014 Follmer Edition Mustang boasts Saleen's "mechanically advanced technology", including a naturally aspirated 470+ HP V8 high-revving 4-Valve engine, a six-speed manual transmission and a track-tuned suspension.
The special edition Saleen Mustang is now available for pre-orders, with first deliveries to begin in late fall 2013. Pricing is estimated to be "in the mid $70,000s".
The following two muslcecars in the Heritage Collection Lineup - the Mark Donohue Edition Camaro and the Swede Savage Edition Barracuda - are scheduled to be unveiled in winter 2013 and early 2014 respectively.
"As a specialty manufacturer and [racecar] driver myself, it is the perfect alignment of passions that allowed us to complete an entire collection of vehicles during today's event", said Steve Saleen, president & CEO of Saleen. "We may actually be the only company that can offer this type of Automotive Collection all under one brand name."
