    I was loking into the S281E but I was asked about the 2003 Saleen Cobra. I never head of it before so I went to the saleen site and it was nowhere to be found. I recently seen it on a site. Check it out. Anybody got any info on these.. specs anything?

    Thanks

    From my understanding Saleen doesnt do anything to the engine, new exhaust and X pipe. Minor suspension work and the body kit :shrug: Pretty much paying for the *****ty Saleen name.

    FYI... you might already know this... but for the same exact price you could get a 99 S351

    Dont forget about those racing seats :nice:

    Saleen does an amazing job but why do they have to be so damn expensive. I would give me left nut to own a S281E or S351. I just can't justify the price compared to a 04 Cobra.

    I heard (From a friend) that there is a sperm bank in OK (i think that was the state) that you can sell a testical for $80,000 tax free. They replace it with a prosthetic one. I dont know how much truth there is into that :shrug:

    There is a 03 Saleen with a super charger. To me it looked just like a Cobra but only had 385HP. It didn't have the Cobra badging though. Cost: $42,000

    Gene (vipergts281) and I saw one up at JD's performance north of Philly. I believe the owner said it was 1 of 6. Curt (cmemach1) has pics of it and hopefully he will post them later.

    if you are serious about it or want addtl info i am sure JD's will be willing to get you in touch with the owner. And get this besides the 03 saleen cobra his other car was a 01 saleen s281 supercharged vert.

    Probably driving somewhere.
    Yup, the guy had a silver with black top 2003 Saleen Cobra. I was under the impression they only made 5 of them. But I just recently read somewhere that there is about 11 or 12 of them. :shrug: He paid for the 03 Cobra from the dealer. And then paid an additional $15,000 on top of that and had it sent to Saleen.

    And I think his other Saleen was a 02, not an 01. :D Either way, the guy had 2 silver vert Saleen's. :hail2:

    He said he plans on selling the 02 and he may buy a GT40. :eek:

    Hy dynoed at 475 rwhp that day I believe. He showed me a previous dyno chart where he got 471 rwhp. That car was definitly bad a**.

    :drool:

    As Saleen201 mentioned, the 1999 S351 was rated at 495 hp. :nice:
