Saleen Black Label Mustang

Saleen is well-known in the  car community for producing truly excellent custom vehicles. The 2021 Saleen Mustang 302 is just the latest in a long line of exceptional vehicles that Saleen has designed and manufactured.

The 302 is built off of Ford's classic Mustang. It is available in three trims, referred to as the White Label, Yellow Label, and Black Label. The 302 is available as either a Fastback or a Convertible, but both of these enjoy the same engine and other parts. This post will discuss the most prestigious of the already superb trims: the Black Label 302.

Black Label Specs

Like all of the 2021 Saleen Mustangs, the Black Label version boasts a 302CI 4-valve DOHC V8 engine. It outputs a tremendous 800 horsepower and 630 ft.-lb.s of torque - heads will turn everywhere you go in this magnificent vehicle. The Black Label 302 has  a number of other exceptional performance features:

  • Saleen Supercharger with Low Pressure Drop Intercoolers
  • High Volume Intercooler Water Pump with Remote External Heat Exchanger
  • 47 lb.s fuel injectors
  • Saleen's carbon fiber exhaust tips
  • Independent rear suspension
  • Saleen RaceCraft Specific Rate front and rear springs
  • RaceCraft performance sway bars in the front and rear
  • High Performance ZR rated tires (275 35R20 in the front and 305 30R20 in the rear)
  • Saleen Performance brake pads

Performance Features

The Black Label 302 comes standard with a 6-speed manual transmission that enjoys a 3.55:1 Final Gear Ratio Limited-Slip Differential and a Synchronized Short-Throw Shifter. Drivers can, however, opt for a 3.73:1 ratio if they prefer. Those that like to focus on the open road instead of the transmission can opt for a 10-speed Auto Transmission with SelectShift, Paddle Shifters, and a remote start function. These drivers can choose between 3.15:1 and 3.55:1 Final Gear Ration Limited-Slip Differentials.

The transmission is not the only feature of the 302 that is subject to customization. The Black Label Mustang comes standard with silver Monaco 5-spoke alloy wheels (20" x 9.5" in the front and 20" x 11" in the back) that can be swapped out for chrome or carbonite.

This version of the Saleen 302 also has a number of other features that are not available on the White or Yellow labels. These include the following:

  • A front air vane with brake cooling
  • High downforce carbon fiber air splitter
  • Saleen's center induction hood and heat extractor hood vents
  • Carbon side skirts

This is to say nothing of the many cosmetic and luxury features that the Saleen 302 Mustang enjoys. Some of the highlights on this point are the embroidered model designation trunk mat (which is only found on the Black Label) and the wealth of exterior decorations, like the Saleen Championship Wreath decal.
