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.

Ford can't seem to build F-150 SVT Raptors fast enough. The off-road-ready trucks have been one of the Blue Oval's most reliable sellers, with record sales in eight of the last 10 months and a 14-percent jump in 2013. That's impressive enough, considering that the least expensive Raptor starts at $44,000. Factor in the modded F-150's fuel economy (it's rated at 11 miles per gallon in the city and 16 on the highway) and a national average gas price, as of this writing, of $3.55 per gallon, and its success is as unlikely as Ford's home team, the Detroit Lions, winning the Super Bowl this year (sorry, Lions fans, we're just quoting the experts in Vegas...).

Yet for some reason, Raptors spend an average of just 15 days on dealer lots before being snapped up, which is a quarter of the 60-day industry average. According to Ford's truck group marketing manager, Doug Scott, it's capability that keeps the Raptor selling strong. "What's helping drive Raptor sales is that Raptor delivers unmatched off-road performance to our customers. Raptor is also proof of our commitment to offer a truck for every customer and continuously improving them to meet our customers' evolving needs."
To address the strong demand for Raptors, Ford will bump production from three trucks per hour to five. Not much, we agree. But building an extra 48 trucks per day, at most, seems like a prudent way of addressing demand without oversaturating what is ultimately a niche market. Check out the press release below for more.
It's that time in the life of the Ford Focus to get a little work done - a nip-tuck here, some Botox there. Yes, Ford is testing a facelifted version of its global C-segment entry, which first hit markets in Europe and North America in May 2011.

Like the touchup on the Fiesta, expect Ford's gaping grille to make its first appearance on the Focus. Our spy photographers point out that this is likely to be a more comprehensive makeover than previous spy shots suggested, based on the additional camouflage seen here on the front and rear ends of this five-door model. New head and taillights are also likely in order, as are changes to the front and rear fascia.
The interior was also snapped and features a cleaner design with a larger central display. Other than that, it looks like some buttons have been changed, making us think most of the Focus' updates are limited to the exterior.
We at Autoblog love the new little Ford Fiesta ST, and apparently, folks in Europe are pretty impressed with it, as well. According to Ford, the automaker's European arm has already logged 3,000 orders for the new hot hatch since it hit dealerships this March. The US-spec car, which will only be available as a five-door, will go on sale in the United States this summer.
What's perhaps most interesting about the Fiesta ST ordering is that the majority of customers appear to be ordering high-spec cars. According to Ford data, 60 percent of customers have opted for the leather interior with Recaro buckets, and 90 percent have selected the upgraded 17-inch wheels (seen on our test car, above). Spirit Blue has been the most popular color, commanding 27 percent of all orders. As for the technology upgrades, 19 percent of customers have ponied up for the Sony stereo with navigation.
To recap, the Fiesta ST is offered with Ford's 1.6-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine, putting out 179 horsepower and 177 pound-feet of torque, mated exclusively to a six-speed manual transmission. We had an absolute blast flinging the hot Fiesta through the French Alps, and we can't wait for this sharp little hatch to make its way over to the States.
