Saleen Yellow Label Mustang

Saleen was founded decades ago by Steve Saleen, a professional racer. The company specializes in making performance parts for performance vehicles, and in building their own custom cars. Only a small number of these are available every year, and you will only find them at authorized Saleen retailers like Ames Ford in Iowa. We can also install Saleen Performance parts on your Mustang or F-150, bringing some of Saleen's magic to your Mustang GT.

Saleen makes a truck that is based off of the Ford F-150, and has a new vehicle that builds off of the resurrected Ford Bronco. Their signature offering, however, is the iconic Saleen 302 Mustang, which is available in a variety of trims. These are referred to as the White, Yellow, and Black labels. Below, we will look at the standout features of the Yellow Label Mustang from Saleen, and compare to the White Label and Black Label models.

Ames Ford is Iowa's only Saleen dealer, and drivers in Des Moines can experience their legendary performance right here in Ames, IA. Our dedicated Performance Department can answer all your questions, and help turn your dream Mustang into a reality. So contact us today to learn more. 

Yellow Label vs White Label vs Black Label

What are the differences?

The main rule to follow with Saleen Performance vehicles, is that horsepower increases as you move from White to Yellow to Black Label. The Yellow Label represents the biggest jump up, due to the addition of Saleen's famed Supercharger. And as you will see in the charts below, there are also some performance and interior features that differ between Saleen trim levels.

Performance Statistics

The Yellow Label 302 Mustang has a beastly 302CI V8 engine that outputs a stunning 745 horsepower with 610 lb-ft of torque. These numbers would not be out of place in a professional racing vehicle, but Saleen makes them available to Iowa drivers with their custom Mustangs.

Going from 0-60 in a blistering 3.7 seconds, the Yellow Label Mustang is a true joy to take to the track or on a weekend joyride.

The 6-speed manual transmission that's standard on the 302 will keep Ames, IA drivers in complete control of the vehicle. The synchronized short-throw shifter that's included makes the driving experience even better, and Saleen's signature style will turn heads just like those first Mustangs that rolled down Main Street. Saleen also offers a special 10-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters and a remote start, letting you focus on the scenery of Story County's country roads..

Interior and Technology

The performance specs of the Saleen Yellow Label 302 Mustang certainly impress, as does the interior of the vehicle. It features Saleen-embroidered headrests, as well as their signature leather and Alcantara-wrapped steering wheel. Each Saleen 302 Yellow Label also gets custom gauges. These are just some of the touches that make Saleen's signature vehicles such a pleasure to own.


Additional Performance Features

The Yellow Label 302 also comes with 20-inch 5-spoke Silver Aluminum wheels, High Performance ZR Rated tires, and special S-slotted rotors. Other performance upgrades from Saleen include the independent rear suspension, RaceCraft springs in the front and back of the vehicle, and sway bar. The Saleen Yellow Label Mustang is a great example of style and serious substance in one package.


The Saleen Yellow Label 302 Mustang is one of the most impressive sports cars on the market, especially for its price range. Unlike other vehicles with performance capabilities like the 302's, this vehicle is actually affordable for many Iowa drivers. You'll catch everyone's eye when you roar down the road in one of these beasts, especially in Saleen's custom colors.
