Saleen GT4 Concept Is (Almost) Ready To Race, Priced From $225,000

Saleen is looking to make a name for itself in the world of racing with the recent unveiling of the Saleen GT4 Concept Race Car.

Based around the road-going Saleen S1 (which has yet to hit the market), the GT4 Concept Race Car is fitted with a turbocharged 2.2-liter four-cylinder with 450 HP and 350 lb-ft (474 Nm) of torque.

As befits a racer, the Saleen GT4 features a lightweight carbon fiber bodywork and a series of aerodynamic modifications such as a large rear wing, front splitter and rear diffuser. There are also air louvers on the front air intakes and a set of racing wheels wrapped in racing rubber.

The vehicle unveiled at a recent event in Las Vegas will likely be tweaked before making its competitive debut. Most notably, the concept features traditional wheel nuts and, for the finished item, these will be replaced with centerlocks.

“We developed the Saleen 1 to be fully capable on the track and easily adapt to racing applications,” company founder and chief executive Steve Saleen said. “Our company was founded on racing DNA and the track is where we prove our reputation. We look forward to completing the homologation process with SRO and seeing these cars compete at GT4 events around the world.”

Saleen is currently completing the SRO homologation process for the Saleen GT4. Once everything is done, it will go on sale from a cool $225,000 and be eligible to compete in series across Europe, America and Asia.
