It's messed up that the movie producers trash this vehicle especially since it's an AMERICAN MUSCLE CAR.

Why do they do that in fast n furious films? :mad:

the S281 Extreme has 200+ more HP that a regular S281 but I don't think the Extreme was available on this generation.

Actually this is a 2001 Mustang Saleen S281, with a 4.6L supercharged V8 bringing out about 375hp. There were 3 used for the movie. One of the three is being auctioned off at the Mecum Auctions in Kissimmee, Florida between January 17-26, 2014. This is a summary of it from Mecum:
"Since its debut in 1996 the Saleen Mustang S281 has been the flagship of the Saleen line of specially modified custom automobiles, making it ideal for a role in the movie “2 Fast 2 Furious”, the second installment in the hit “Fast and Furious” movie series. The car was originally manufactured by Saleen for R&D on the new “Extreme” model that was slated for production beginning in 2002. It was originally painted “Speedlab Yellow”, a Saleen custom color, and then numbered 02-0002E for use as a Saleen press vehicle. After its tour, it was one of three Saleens remanufactured for Universal Studios for use in “2 Fast 2 Furious” and repainted Lizstick Red. The roll bar, camera mounts and “Year One” log on the back window were installed by Universal Studios. At the completion of filming the cars were returned to Saleen. This 11,995 mile S281 sports Ford’s versatile 4.6L SOHC V-8 with special fuel calibration, underdrive pulleys and a performance exhaust system that gives the S281 its authoritative roar at full throttle. Upgraded with a Saleen Series IV Lysholm twin screw supercharger and 2½ -inch exhaust, the car cranks out a ripping 375 HP with the attached power flash, an almost 100 HP increase over the naturally aspirated version; behind that is a quick-shifting 6-speed manual and heavy duty rear end. The chassis is equal to the task of making that power work, with Saleen Racecraft suspension, 18-inch wheels with Pirelli P-Zero tires and slotted and vented 4-wheel anti-lock disc brakes. As with all Saleens, this excellent example features an engine bay plaque and serialized console plaque that verify its authenticity as a true Saleen vehicle. It is also listed in the Saleen Registry and documented with a letter from Saleen chronicling the car’s history and use."

There are so many classic Challengers and Camaros out there, it's not a shame anymore. Check this out:

Production of 2003 S281s: 137
Production of 1969 Camaros: 243,085
Production of 1970 Challenger: 76,935

Your argument is invalid. :)

Also, this car can not be a ricer because ricers are always Japanese cars.

A muscle car like that can be easily beaten by a Skyline

They only used a regular V6 Ford Mustang because the Saleen version cost $60,000.

This looks to be the S281 SC, not just the standard S281. You can see the gauge cluster on top of the dash as well as the special hood.
