We will get to all the specifications of this Dan Gurney Signature Edition 2008 Saleen Ford Mustang GT fastback, but you likely know all those fine details. What you don’t know is that this example is #44 out of 82 produced. She has less than 350 miles from new. This car’s single owner is meticulous and has pampered the car while keeping it in secure climate controlled storage when they are not displaying it at shows or to other car enthusiasts.
Take the latest generation Mustang and let the premier OEM endorsed tuner employ the knowledge of a legendary driver and you have the recipe for an amazing machine. This car has been written up in MotorTrend, Automobile, and AutoWeek (Plaque Included) magazines.
Performance wise, this car is fast, with 465HP coming from the supercharged engine. That translates into a 0-60 time of 4.3 seconds and rounds out the ¼ mile in 12.9 seconds, going 111.3 MPH – not that we recommend trying that at home ;-). Yes, Dan Gurney’s signature is found on the dash but you know it is “his” car when you look to this car’s handling characteristics. MotorTrend’s tests show an amazing time of just 25.5 seconds on their exclusive Figure 8 test and a stunning 0.96 Gs of lateral grip. Vented disc brakes (14” front 11.8” rear) stop the car in 108ft (60-0 MPH). If you want all the specs, click here for a PDF copy of the car’s brochure.
The exterior is beautiful and optioned in the Vista Blue clearcoat paint and white graphics. Note the #2 stickers are actually magnets that can be added or removed on a whim. The front fender Eagles are also included but were not factory applied.
Like the exterior, the interior is fresh and flawless with no wear – the floor mats are still factory wrapped, as is the air compressor. Manuals, window stickers and literature abound. As you would expect, there are no mechanical or other issues with this factory perfect example.
Saying there are no other cars like this is a bit of an overstatement, there are 81 others like it – in two other color combinations – on the planet. There might even be another for sale, somewhere. We believe there is not another Saleen that is as clean, well cared for, or has as few miles as this example does. If you are looking for an amazing car and what will become a classic, this car deserves your attention – act now before it gets away!
