Saleen Sporttruck S331
With no F150-based "Lightning" pickups in Ford showrooms--yet--Steve Saleen saw an opportunity to sell more vehicles while getting his name on something other than a Mustang. As with his raucous pony cars, Saleen's extended-cab Sporttruck S331 features crazy bodywork, a highly modified suspension, and stupendous brakes. The Sporttruck 331 gets its name from the 331-cubic-inch V-8 under the hood, which produces 325 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque in base "three-valve" form and 450 hp and 500 lb-ft when equipped with a twin-screw supercharger. Other cool bits include side exhaust, 23-inch wheels, and a modified interior with unique gauges, race pedals, and five sport seats. Prices will start in the "high thirties" for the three-valve version and about ten grand more if you want the supercharger.
