Saleen builds SMS 570 Dodge Challenger
Steve Saleen, founder of the iconic Saleen tuner outfit that churns out numerous Mustang variants, has left his own company and created a new tuning house. Called SMS, they publicly revealed the production-version of their first model in a new line of Signature Series performance vehicles. The new model is called the SMS 570 Challenger, based on the Dodge Challenger R/T.
The SMS 570 plays host to unique features such as the patented
SMS Red Butterfly Induction hood, alongside SMS upgrade components for the drivetrain, suspension, aerodynamics, tyres, wheels and interior.
The street legal SMS 570 Challenger and SMS 570X Challenger will be
based off the 2009 Dodge Challenger R/T platform and will feature their own SMS 296 Supercharger atop the 5.7-litre Hemi V8, with power ratings from 500 hp to over 700 hp, depending on tune.
Each of these limited edition vehicles will be personally signed by Steve Saleen as part of the Signature Series product line, complete with unique badges and graphics. Production numbers will be limited per year depending on the model, with pre-orders taken on a first-come first-served basis.
American base prices for the 2009 SMS 570 Challenger and SMS 570X Challenger are targeted at US$ 60,000 to US$ 70,000 respectively, with production commencing soon. Both models will carry a bumper-to-bumper factory warranty.

Just a heads-up, but satwa/deira tint is always crappily put on, since they put it on in 20 minutes. The expensive professional places take 3 to 4 hours, and do a better job, and the front or rear ones are one piece. It would be a shame to put cheap tint on any new car.
On another note, comment no.7 by Mshuqom is directly from Saleen’s SMS.
