In the long ago time of the year 2000, Saleen unveiled the S7. It was fast, gorgeous, expensive, and it had rumors swirling around it regarding its origin. And now, inexplicably, Saleen has announced that it will create seven limited edition S7 models called the S7 LM.
The Saleen S7 is a mystifying car, a $375,000 American mid-engine supercar that sprung up out of nowhere in the year 2000. But what if it wasn’t exactly nowhere? Acting on a tip, I spent months trying to figure out the S7’s true origins. And I’m still not sure what to think.
The Saleen S7 is, without a shadow of a doubt, one of the most gorgeous cars of the last 25 years. Maybe even last 50. It sounds ridiculously perfect, too. And now’s your chance to own all of it. Yes, all of it. Up for sale now are all remaining inventory, parts, memorabilia, molds, designs and intellectual property…
I've said it before, and I'll say it again. The Saleen S7 is in the pantheon of the prettiest cars ever made, and is certainly among the tops of the modern era. Sure, it might not have drove that well, but as a piece of art it was a delicate beauty.
American cars are normally known for massive production numbers. Ransom Eli Olds brought the assembly line to car production, and Henry Ford put pretty much everybody into a Model T. Which is why I love when an American manufacturer goes against the grain, and makes cars for the select few.
You know, sometimes I walk into the club and I'm like, "The club can't even handle me right now." This is exactly like that, except instead of the club, you have a dyno, and instead of me, you have a Saleen S7 with all-wheel drive tuned to 2,200 horsepower.
If you want a 200 MPH+ car, your options are limited. If you want one that also waves the Made in America flag, they're even more limited. But don't worry, Nice Price or Crack Pipe has got your back.
We heard about the release date yesterday, but today we've stumbled upon some of the screenshots from the latest addition to the Midnight Club series. These screenshots feature the likes of the Nissan R34 Skyline GT-R, Saleen S302 Extreme and S7, Dodge Challenger SRT8, 2010 Chevy Camaro and a 2008 Cadillac CTS even…
UPDATE: The official Iron Man Super Bowl commercial! Apparently it's not just automakers like Hyundai and Chrysler with money to burn this Super Bowl Ad Watch weekend. Nope, it's also the movie industry — it looks like Iron Man will be getting some love in a commercial airing this Sunday during the big game.…
