Wild new Mustang unleashed

Is this the best-looking Mustang of the modern bunch?
We reckon so, and it's got some serious endorsement from an American racing legend.
The Parnelli Jones Mustang is a limited edition model from US tuning, racing and supercar company Saleen.

There's also a power hump in the bonnet, rear spoiler and slatted rear window cover on matt black to give that essential 1970s feel.

Running on 19in alloy wheels with broad tyres front and rear, the Parnelli Jones looks the business.

Inside, there's some special seat trimming and a Saleen/Parnelli Jones steering wheel boss.

But this ain't no cosmetic makeover. Under the bonnet, Saleen has brought its knowledge to bear to pump up the 302ci (5.0-litre) V8's grunt up to 370bhp and 370lb ft.

A new exhaust finishes off the engine tweakery and has a seriously addictive V8 rumble.

Only 500 Saleen/Parnelli Jones Limited Edition Mustangs will be built and prices in the States are expected to start around $55,000 (£33,000), with delivery this September.

Parnelli Jones may sound like a delicatessen in Swansea to some Brit ears, but he is one of the US's most successful racers and steered a Mustang to victory in the 1970 Trans Am championship, the equivalent of winning the British Touring Car Championship nowadays.
