Trivia

  • In 1985, Steve Saleen's secretary miscounted the vehicles produced that year, omitting vehicle number 6 as a result of confusing it with 9. Since 1985, Saleen has had the tradition of not issuing the #6 bumper number on any of its vehicles. Sometimes, a Mustang equipped with a Saleen aftermarket bodykit will bear 6 as its bumper number, signifying it as a "Fake" Saleen Mustang.
  • In keeping with the family name of founder Steve Saleen, the company’s name is pronounced /səˈliːn/ sə-leen, rhyming with "machine".
  • The Saleen S5S Raptor won in the 2016 Community Car Poll for Asphalt 8: Airborne but Saleen declined on licensing the car and brand for the game.
