This just in from our friends at Fast-Autos.net: production on the Saleen S331 sport truck is well underway at Saleen's irvine, CA production facility, and they were able to get inside for an up-close look at the process (check out the photos after the jump).
Unveiled at the Los Angeles Auto Show in January, the S331 comes in two flavors: regular and supercharged. Both editions use Ford's 5.4L SOHC 3-valve V8 for motivation and come in the Super Cab body style
The normally-aspirated version is good for 325 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque, while customers who step up to the supercharged edition are rewarded with 450 horses and a Dodge Ram SRT-10-matching 500 lb-ft of torque. A Saleen exhaust, Racecraft suspension, 23" wheels, and six-piston brakes round out the mechanical improvements. Visually, the trucks are dressed in a sharp-looking Saleen body kit that emphatically reinforces their sporting nature. Inside, a new instrument cluster, upgraded leather sport seating embroidered with the Saleen logo and a host of other available options give the S331 a custom feel. Look for prices in the high $30Ks for the normally aspirated version. The supercharged S331 will retail in the upper $40Ks.
