Vehicles featured in the Saleen Heritage Collection, unveiled last summer at Laguna Seca Raceway, were special attractions at the recent Chicago Auto Show.
The trilogy of vehicles are a continuance of the coveted Heritage vehicles that Saleen produced in the late 2000s. Ford, Chevrolet and Plymouth are represented in the latest collection.
The Heritage Collection Lineup - Celebrating Man and Machine – includes a tribute to Mark Donohue. The MD Edition Camaro commemorates the diverse and successful racing career of Mark Donohue. As a major competitor during the SCCA Trans-Am series of the late 1960's, Donohue was known to strategize every aspect of his race vehicle from engineering setup to driving toward each victory. The Saleen | Donohue Edition Camaro is largely queued from the #6 1969 Camaro that sparked the flame of major competition for the racing series and claimed the season championship that same year.
"All of our vehicles in the Saleen Heritage Collection were designed and engineered to retain the authentic lineage of the original factory-backed racecars", added Steve Saleen. "In driving and seeing the new Saleen versions of each car I am quickly taken back to the memories I personally have of these cars at Riverside International Raceway from the ‘60s and 70s."
Orders can be placed at Saleen dealers nationwide, or by contacting Saleen directly for a personalized ordering process which concludes at the nearest Saleen Authorized Dealership. MSRP for each Saleen Heritage Collection model is estimated to be in the mid-$70,000s. For more information, visit www.saleen.com
