Saleen FourSixteen Ordering Sheet

Though it theoretically costs only $152,000 to order a Saleen FourSixteen (aka Saleen Tesla Model S), if you tick all the boxes, then the price skyrockets to over $245,000.

Problem is that most of the mods that Saleen made to the Model S on the performance side don’t come as standard in the FourSixteen.

For example, to get the upgraded final drive and locking differential, those add $12,400 to the $152,000 base MSRP.  The coil-over suspension adds $6,000 and those trick carbon-ceramic rotors with upgraded calipers and pads will set you back a cool $14,550.

So, what does the base $152,000 buy you?  Mostly just the exterior modifications (body changes), enhanced cooling, Saleen badges and that’s basically it.

You don’t have to take our word for it though.  Check out the Saleen FourSixteen ordering guide to see how much the options really cost.

    That would make THREE 85 kWh Teslas!
    I would get three different colors I drive the one that matches my cloths!

      What happens if you want a color, that only saleen offers? Maybe you need to buy one, but then the 150k model should be enough.

      But i thought why didn’t they put a radar in it and made a cruise control, that would be really more luxury class style.

        I tell you what. I’d to Elon and tell him take this money and make me a 170 kwh car. A car that needs charging every 600 miles!

          Um, I guess you don’t understand why 85 kWh is the maximum you can buy from Tesla, eh?

          Hint: it’s about space.

            I think that the added weight is more important. Model S is a big car and there is plenty of room for extra batteries.

            Anyway, strong rumors are telling that Tesla and Panasonic are working on higher energy density batteries that can provide significantly more range — and quite soon, perhaps already in 2015.

    Was hoping for drive-train mods – a super cooling or summat.. seems hard to reconcile with super-performance if the natural limits still remain – why do I need F1 brakes for a car that tops at 120-ish and doesn’t like to keep doing it long enough to abuse the brakes it has? Cooling, it needs.. hello?

    Great car to ‘soup up’ but seems they shied away from their near re-invent of the Mustang that made them famous.

    1. Phr3d says:

      OOPS, nm, just read the fuller bio of the car
      shaddap, Phr3d

    So the cooling bits come as part of the ‘base’, but the diff and final drive don’t? Le shrug. I doubt one would need the uprated brakes given regeneration.

  4. Ellison says:

    You can bet I’m spending $14,500.00 on the brakes and another $25,000.00 on the paint.

    Not!

  5. Foo says:

    Garbage mods for people with more money than sense.

  6. Bill Howland says:

    Now how many people would pay the $250,000 and still complain that a $76,000 ELR is overpriced?

    I know, its cheap compared to a $500,000 Roadster that is 1/3 second faster than a Roadster Sport – and that’s with a dinky battery.

    The Mercedes EV Roadster also has crappy range for the 1/2 milion price.

    Just once I’d like to see an established car company put in a decently sized battery pack, beating the Tesla or Volt.

    Ford’s, and Porsche’s 20 mile ranges and Toyota’s Prius 8 mile range aren’t what I nor many other prospective plug in buyers are looking for.
