Want to Own an Original Decepticon S281 Saleen Extreme from 2007 Transformers Movie?

Whatever your opinion is about the fifth gen Mustang, if we’re talking about an example of Ford’s pony car that’s not only dressed like the Decepticon character “Barricade” that appeared in the original Transformers movie in 2007, but is in fact, one of the actual models featured in the film, deserves our attention.

This particular model is said to be camera car No2, with the studio having created a total of three cars for the movie – you may remember that one of the three S281 Saleen Extreme Ford Mustangs from the Transformers blockbuster was listed for sale in 2010, but we’re not sure if it’s the same one featured here.

The Saleen-tuned model is based on the 2005 Mustang and comes with a 4.6-liter V8 mill modified to deliver 335-horses, along with many other upgrades, ranging from the full body kit to the 20-inch wheels and the customized interior.

As you can imagine, you can’t take the car out for a ride without hiding or removing certain Police car features and decals, but the seller has taken care of some of those issues with magnet signs that cover the original police insignias.

If you’re interested, the ‘Buy it now’ price on ebay is $80,000 or about €59,200.
