Up for sale is my XP8 Explorer. This is one of the 119 total production out of the three years Saleen produced these. It is black with gray leather. It's a factory supercharged 5.0 liter or 302 with close to 300 hp. Automatic transmission, AWD, factory lowered 1", factory Borla exhaust, and Racecraft shocks. It has a little less than 85k miles on it.
It is missing two of the four original magnesium Saleen wheels as these were prone to crack. I have the two but it rides on a set of powdercoated factory Explorer wheels in black. I had the front bumper painted solid black instead of with the insert as I liked the blackout look, the factory paint was known to peel. I have the template for the number sticker that is supposed to be on it - can get it put on after the auction if buyer desires. All the other cladding is in place and in good condition, even the rare rear spoiler. It has the carbon fiber overlays on the interior pieces and the correct number plate on the center console. It has the correct carbon fiber mirror, too. The factory radio/CD was rebuilt as they are known to have display issues. I also have all four Coco mats - the driver's has a worn spot but the company Cocomats.com will still repair them. Everything works except for the antenna, motor still hums so gear must have broke. Two years ago I replaced basically the whole front suspension to tighten it up so it still drives good to be 10+ years old. The exterior paint has a few bad places where the cladding has rubbed the paint off the vehicle and some scratches but I would still say it's 6.5-7/10. Very minor surface rust underneath but in good shape as I POR15 undercoated everything. Intake has the correct original Saleen cover plate and radiator support/console both have number specific Saleen plates.
The truck has SC rebuilt paperwork (I have the before picture). It had a bent control arm and torsion bar and wheel hit fender. Definitely did not deserve rebuilt status so someone must have done some convincing. Only used Mobil 1 oil. Has new back brakes and newer front brakes. Tires are about 70% front and 40% rear, all matching. Close to 35% tint on all rear windows. I installed a factory roof rack from a newer explorer as the Saleens did not come factory with them.

XCAR has put together what it believes is a first - a drag race between Ford's legendary, Le Mans-winning GT40, the more recent GT supercar it inspired and the little-known GT70 rally car. The three mid-engined monsters were all built for very different purposes, and not surprisingly, they come to battle with very different powertrains.

The GT40 is powered by a thumping, naturally aspirated V8. This example, which looks like a Mark IV model, is likely powered by a 7.0-liter engine, although it's not entirely clear how much power it's putting down. The GT70, meanwhile, was Ford's response to the Lancia Stratos. Considering that the Lancia is one of the greatest rally cars in history and many of you are probably just hearing of the GT70 for the first time, you can imagine how much success Ford had with it. Only six were produced before a change in regulations doomed this mid-engined rally car.
The Ford GT, meanwhile, doesn't really need an introduction. 550 horsepower is on offer from a 5.4-liter, supercharged V8, which keeps the GT competitive even against more modern supercars. 60 miles per hour arrives in well under four seconds while the top speed sits at 212 mph. Not bad for a car that went out of production in 2006.
Happy Mustang Day. Are you tired of hearing about the 2015 Ford Mustang yet? No? Good, here's a bunch of mechanical data on Ford's sixth-gen muscle car, along with cutaways of the GT's 5.0-liter V8 and the new 2.3-liter, EcoBoost four-cylinder shown above. We also have a smattering of info on the Stang's updated transmissions and an exploded-parts-diagram view of its all-new independent rear suspension.

Ford is set to make waves offering the Mustang with a turbo for the firs time since the small-volume SVO of the 1980s. Displacing 2.3 liters, the engine's twin-scroll turbo should help the four-cylinder turn out a projected 305 horsepower and 300 pound-feet of torque, while also returning the best fuel economy in the Mustang's engine lineup. As we said in our Deep Dive, the EcoBoost will be slotted in as a premium engine, above the 3.7-liter V6 but below the 5.0-liter V8.
Speaking of that high-revving eight-cylinder, it's receiving a new cylinder head with high-flow ports. The intake and exhaust valves are larger and the cams have been replaced, among other tweaks. It should rev even higher thanks to a rebalanced crankshaft and forged connecting rods. Ford is still claiming a projected 420 hp and 390 lb-ft, although as many of the changes for the 2015's V8 come from the 2013 Boss 302, we're going to assume there's some sandbagging at work.
As Ford celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Mustang with the unveiling of the all-new sixth-gen design, one Chicago women can lay claim to a piece of Mustang history. According to CBS Chicago, Gail Wise was the first person in the US to buy a Mustang in 1964, and she did so two days before the car was even unveiled to the public.
Wise, then a 22-year-old teacher, went into the Chicago Ford dealership wanting to buy a convertible, and a salesperson ushered her over to car covered by a tarp. That car was a baby blue Mustang convertible, which she still owns today - along with the documentation. After sitting for almost 30 years and undergoing a full restoration, the car now looks to be in original condition. The report says that this $3,400 purchase could be worth anywhere between $100,000 and $250,000. While this worked out well for Mrs. Wise, we wouldn't recommend anyone going into a dark, back room of a dealership hoping to get a jump on the purchase of a 2015 Mustang.
