2005 Saleen S7 Twin Turbo

Previous Vehicle Next Vehicle

The Saleen S7 hasn't exactly been setting the sales world on fire since its introduction in 2002, not the least because the company has been busy establishing itself as a prime contractor for the Ford GT project. Nevertheless, Saleen hopes to revitalize its mid-engine supercar with a turbocharged version of its 7.0-liter Ford V-8. Thanks to twin, water-cooled Garrett turbos, this high-tech, all-aluminum engine now delivers 750 hp @ 6300 rpm and 700 lb-ft of torque at 4800 rpm. Although the car itself looks the same, the front fenders and rear diffuser/spoiler package have been reshaped to reduce aero drag and deliver more downforce, while new suspension incorporates anti-squat and anti-dive geometry. Most of this will probably matter only to competitors in the FIA GT series, where the S7 consistently wins races. The MSRP starts at $550,000-some $100,000 less than a Ferrari Enzo, the ever-optimistic Saleen folks point out.
