    96 Saleen 59,000 miles well taken care of.


    01 Bullitt 40,000 miles also appears well taken care of.

    Assume @ the same price.

    What would you choose?

    Just Curious.

    Bullitt if the Saleen is just the body kit version. Assuming if they are the same price the Saleen is not Supercharged.

    Yeah assuming the Saleen isn't supercharged, Bullitt hands down. Newer, less miles, and I'm personally not a fan of the whole saleen body kit.

    Saleen S281 4.6 2V NPI.
    They did not come Supercharged until 99 (2V that is)

    Saleen is base S281. Suspension and Aero kit.

    Bullitt is basically stock but IMO has better factory equipment.

    That was originally the plan but these guys want ALL the money for base S281's. I looked at a few Bullitts and I can get one cheaper in most cases.
    Down side being a lot of my parts are 96-98 specific but I know they would sell.

    Personally I love bullitts and really want one but I like the cool factor of the sn95 saleen. I have never seen one in person and have never seen one for sale anywhere near me. Its more special imo.

    The white-on-white Saleen is the SN95 in its most beautiful form, imho. I dream about it.

    That's a tough choice. For down the road resale value, the Saleen. If you don't care about that as much, I would get the Bullitt. Better starting platform, not as old so the suspension parts probably aren't all worn out.

    The Saleen's suspension and body kit being it's big boasting points are lackluster, because the "upgraded" suspension from 1996 is kinda meh now, and is also 20 years old at this point and probably all needs to be rebuilt.
