What were you driving 15 years ago? If it had over 400 horsepower from the factory, you were a superhero. Sure the Ford GT and Lamborghini both offered mid-engine performance, but both brands were upset by our friend Steve Saleen. His S7 Supercar had been in production since 2000. Knowing the abilities of Ford’s 351 Windsor block, he worked in secret to shock the world. The Saleen S7 Twin Turbo arrived in 2005 with 750 Horsepower and 700 lb-ft of torque. Given the displacement of 7 liters (427 ci) it is still among the most potent production V8 engines ever offered.
Not only did it have immense power, but the S7 Twin Turbo also arrived with revised aerodynamics. Drag was reduced by 40% with a corresponding increase in downforce by 60%. With only 468 miles, this car has no signs of age inside or out. It has been stored in a climate-controlled collection, waiting for you. The chassis stiffness is better than many new production cars, as it is tig-welded 4130 steel. There are no silly electronics. It has 3 pedals, a CD player. A/C and power windows. The Windsor block and Cleveland heads offer decades of reliable fun, so we hope you exercise them once in a while.
