THE ALL-ELECTRIC ALL-PERFORMANCE SALEEN FOURSIXTEEN
Enhancing the performance, technology, and design of the Tesla Model S.
Saleen Automotive Inc. (OTCQB: SLNN) Monterey, CA â€“ (August 17, 2014)
From the same automotive performance brand that brought the true American Supercar, the S7, Saleen has once again set precedence for a vehicle of epic proportions. The Tesla Model S based Saleen FOURSIXTEEN performance electric car was shown for the first time at the 2014 Pebble Beach Concours dâ€™Elegance.
â€œTesla has created an entirely new class of American automobileâ€, explained Steve Saleen. â€œThere are many similarities to this and how Ford created the â€˜pony carâ€™ class in 1964 with the Mustang, which is how these vehicles stand out from the rest of the pack.â€
Standing out from the pack is Saleenâ€™s specialty. Whether itâ€™s their winning racing pedigree, expertly engineered Saleen vehicles, or instantly recognizable design. The Saleen legacy is perfectly packaged into the FOURSIXTEEN Model S and hinges on the mantra for the performance luxury electric car that â€˜status quo wonâ€™t doâ€™.
Purposefully advanced design
From the outside, the FOURSIXTEEN is a harmonious blend of aerodynamic aggressiveness and subtle classiness.Applying the same championship Saleen DNA used over the last three decades, Saleen has created a car that can drive the streets of Monaco and set records at Laguna Seca. From the Saleen crafted front fascia to the carbon fiber rear diffuser, the FOURSIXTEEN aerodynamic design is as inspired as it is functional.
Front aero management vents helps ensure that the Saleen FOURSIXTEEN model maintains a low pressure field as air acceleration increases around the chassis. Assisting the lower aero management is the unique V-shaped hood architecture efficiently directing hot air away from the drivetrain cooling system all while generating valuable downforce across the front section.
The rear fascia design finalizes the aerodynamic system as air moves across the cabin and onto the Saleen designed high-downforce decklid mounted spoiler. Mid-chassis air is directed across the carbon fiber accents stretching between the taillights. Supplying rear wake diffusion is a Saleen diffuser design that boosts aerodynamic downforce capability.
Just like the rest of the Saleen lineup, this car is more than just an eye catching aerodynamic package. Propelling the new FOURSIXTEEN.....Read More
