Default 2010 281 Production

The 2010 281 Supercharged was the second product offering by MJ Acquisitions under their Saleen Performance Vehicles banner. Debuting in late October 2009 at the SEMA show held in Las Vegas, this 281 introduced a clean slate exterior design married to a familiar Saleen Series VI supercharger.

Regular production 281 models were released during the spring and summer of 2010 during a time when Ford motor Company was readying the release of a mechanically updated 2011 Mustang.

With regular production 2010 281 Mustangs at market, the many disputes, counter-suits and legal wrangling over "Saleen" were at full swing. Historically, the 2010 281 Supercharged was an unauthorized, Saleen-inspired product without design, manufacturing or marketing input from Steve Saleen.

Below are believed to be the ten* 281 Supercharged models shown, driven and produced under the eye on MJA/SPV**.
