2015 Saleen Black Label 302 Mustang Debuts With 730 HP

Motor Trend logo Motor Trend 3/23/2015 Conner Golden

Earlier this year, renowned Mustang-modifier Saleen Automotive released information on three new variants of the new 2015 Ford Mustang with varying levels of performance, starting with the White Label and Yellow Label models. This weekend, Saleen revealed its highest-performing tuned 2015 Ford Mustang yet, the 730-hp Black Label.

While the Yellow Label 302 has to make do with a not-insignificant 715 hp and 595 lb-ft of torque out of its supercharged 5.0-liter V-8, Saleen ensured the Black Label went even farther. Saleen fettled with the supercharger from the Yellow Label model and installed higher-flow fuel injectors, to result in the Black Label pumping out a neck-snapping 730 hp and 600 lb-ft of torque from its modified 5.0-liter.

Fifteen-inch brake rotors in the front with multi-piston calipers bring the Black Label 302 back down to saner speeds, while the 275/35 R20 front, 275/40 R20 rear tires help put the tremendous power to the ground.

Saleen adds extensive aerodynamic improvements to the Black Label 302 over the normal 2015 Ford Mustang GT, with the add-ons extending the car's length by nearly 1.5 inch in front and 2 inches to the rear, increasing downforce. A new rear wing adds to the trademark Saleen appearance and aerodynamic performance. A host of external carbon fiber spoilers, foils, and splitters contributes to the aggressive appearance as well as downforce.

Seats get wrapped in suede, and a host of Saleen badging is placed around the cabin. Each Saleen Black Label 302 comes with Saleen serialization and VIN.

Prices for the 2015 Saleen Black Label 302 begin at $73,214, a whopping $40,089 over the price of a base 2015 Mustang GT. That being said, until we get more performance details on the upcoming Shelby GT350 and Shelby GT350R, the Saleen Black Label 302 is currently the apex predator in the Mustang lineup.
