Mere days ago, Steve Saleen and his new(er) organization, SMS Supercars, took the wraps off the 2010 SMS 460 Ford Mustang at the “Mustangs Northwest Roundup” in Seattle, WA.  The latest modified Mustang from Steve’s dreams will be the only one officially authorized to bear the Steve Saleen nameplate as a tribute to the dedication, history, and success he has cultured for over 30 years.  Steve states the SMS 460 Mustang is “…everything I stand for.  It reflects my unrivaled tenure in the Mustang business…”.  Well, Mr. Saleen, if SMS is exactly what you say and the SMS 460 delivers what’s promised, color us excited.  We’ll be waiting to see more of this slick pony car later this year when the launch happens.  What’s more interesting is the SMS460 will come in two trims: the base and the “X”.  The SMS 460 is equipped with a 4.6 liter V8 producing 470 hp and 427 ft-lb of torque, while its bigger brother blasts out (with the help of an upgraded internal assembly and some head work) 655 hp and 600 ft-lb of torque from a 5.0 liter block.  Over 650 hp?  The story gets better and better…  Both SMS 460 flavors get their insane power increases by utilizing the new SMS 296 Supercharger to provide a healthy breath of forced induction.

There’s lots more to these cars, so keep reading for more details in the official Press Release.
