Saleen S7 Overview
Saleen bills its 2007 S7 as "America's supercar," and with the power and speed the car offers, the manufacturer may be right. From a design standpoint, though, it looks a little more like "America's Frankencar," with its Corvette-like front end and Mustangesque rear. However unaesthetic the lines might be, they certainly make a statement about where the folks at Saleen see the 2007 S7 in the long lineage of great performance and muscle cars.
Long, wide, and low-slung, the Saleen keeps its curb weight down with a carbon-fiber body; its 3,036 pounds are featherweight in comparison with the power offered by its engine. That engine, a V8 Twin Turbo that puts out 750 horsepower and 750 lb.-ft. of torque, hustles the Saleen around the roads almost like the race car that inspired it.
You won't find a lot of frills on the '07 Saleen S7; it's a sports car designed for speed and power, not for luxury. And it delivers on both power and speed: It'll get from 0 to 60 in 2.8 seconds, and up to 100 in 6 seconds. The racing feel carries over to the steering and braking systems (no ABS here!) and double-disc clutch.
Compared to the Bugatti Veyron, the Maserati MC12, and other European supercars, the Saleen S7 is tremendous value for the money. It's still a lot of money, but you'll definitely get a lot of car in return.
