SALEEN'S NEW S331 SPORT TRUCK HITS THE PRODUCTION LINE' ÚNITING PERFORMANCE AND STYLE WITH FÚNCTIONALITY '
The Saleen S331 Sport Truck threatened to redefine the sport truck segment when the prototype was released at the 2006 Los Angeles Auto Show. Just as promised, Saleen has followed up with the production launch of both supercharged and 3-Valve versions of the Saleen S331 Sport Truck. Designed and engineered by the same technicians that hand-build the Saleen S7, the S331 merges the functionality of a truck with optimum performance and styling of a world-class sports car.
The production Saleen S331 Sport Truck offers a new level of sophistication to the truck world. For the first time truck owners will feel appropriately suited arriving at the lake or symphony, said Steve Saleen, Founder and Vice Chairman of Saleen, Inc. Performance trucks seem to be universally defined as weekend drivers and show cars. The Saleen S331 maintains its position as a Saleen performance vehicle, while remaining a very capable and comfortable daily driver that has phenomenal towing capabilities. Not to mention that it looks as good as it performs.POWERTRAIN
SALEEN SERIES VI INTEGRATED TWIN-SCREW SÚPERCHARGER
For 2007, both Saleen S331 Sport Truck models are available as a Super Cab and feature a 331 CID (5.4L), 3-valve SOHC V-8 engine with a four-speed automatic transmission. (posted on conceptcarz.com) The supercharged model packs a punch at 450 hp and 500 lb-ft of torque, which is due in part to the patented, high-flow Saleen Series VI integrated twin-screw supercharger, while the 3-Valve offers 325 hp with 380 lb-ft of torque. For increased cooling, an aluminum dual-core radiator and high-flow cooling system are also available as options on either model.
Saleen has taken the same technology and design used to develop the proven Saleen Series VI Integrated Twin-Screw Supercharger that has been immortalized on the Saleen S281, and re-engineered it to deliver maximum results for the S331.Source - Saleen
