No, Saleen is a tuning company, like veilside.
BTW, the Ford GT is far superior to any of those exotics, Read this article to see why
The DeTomaso Pantera was designed and built by ford too, and is considered the precurssor to the ford GT40
The new GT uses a supercharged Mod 5.4L V8, vastly superiour to any foreign built V12, and much lighter to boot. The whole reason the GT hasn't changed is because it was way ahead of it's time when it first appeared as the GT40. Still, ford found room for improvement.
They have never abandoned racing, and have factory backed cars in virtually every form of sanctioned racing, most of those exotics are backed by wealthy individuals, and BTW, you can talk smack about the fords, but the race results tell the truth, the GT is a superior car.
I too would like to see the Enzo race the GT, it would give it a good run, but i'm pretty sure the GT would clean it's clock in the long run.
Don't confuse prestige for performance, the ford GT has both, and if I could afford one, I would buy one in a heartbeat, it's vastly supperior to that euro junk imho.
