So SMS has rolled out their new 2011 Mustang design.

As in the past Saleen will be offering two versions of the SMS (previously Saleen) one that will basically sport some exterior mods and interior mods and a supercharged version that will, according to an SMS press release, produce 535 hp and 450 ft-lb of torque with the blower.

Of course the NA version will come with the 440hp and 400 ft-lb of torque due to Ford’s new 5.0 liter power plant, but you’d get that with a regular GT as well.

Of note, both SMS models come standard with new SMS performance suspension components. The package will include S4 Specific Rate Front and Rear Springs, S4 Front Struts, S4 Rear Shocks, S4 Front and Rear Sway Bars with High Durometer Pivot Bushings and the all-new SMS unique S4 Watts Link rear suspension.

A Watts Link will likely be a welcome feature for many high performance fans, although I’d like to see how much the package will cost before I get too excited.

Below are some more pics… somehow though they managed to make the rear look worse… Saleen’s rear valence offering is MUCH MUCH better I think.
