SMS Supercars to launch white yellow and black label Mustangs

SMS Supercars will shift its focus a bit on the 2012 Mustang lineup, offering 3 different color labels, much like one might find when sniffing after fine spirits.  The introductory White Label Mustang will incorporate some simple touches to that of the Mustang GT and will post a price of $35,540.  Upgrade from White and move on to the Yellow Label and there’s a bit more to play with: the SMS supercharger setup (takes the car to 545hp) and a set of SMS-styled 19″ wheels ‘n rubber.  The top-end moniker to cap it all off is the Black Label SMS Mustang.  It takes the title of leader with its optional 575hp supercharged power plant, a total suspension redo, a complete SMS body kit, and lots of leather to boot.  The price tag set here is $48,000 for the n/a version and $58K for the supercharged monster Mustang.

Saleen’s SMS 302 Ford Mustang revealed

2011 sms 302

First things first.  Steve’s fledgling company has taken a while to get their SMS line from rendering to reality.  If we were telling you about this in July of this year, it would have made it a full year since we first set eyes upon the SMS 460 Mustang, the crown jewel of Steve Saleen’s startup company SMS Supercars.  Well, now that we got the worry that we’d never see the car come to light out of the way, we are certainly glad it has.  Steve and his group have geared up this latest installation, dubbed the SMS 302 Mustang for the upcoming 2011 Mustang displacement, and will offer it in two appealing formats.

Saleen’s latest – the 2010 SMS 460 Ford Mustang

SMS 2010 Mustang 460

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.
