No Lightning? No Problem: Saleen S331 in production

This just in from our friends at 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.
