First American Supercar for Sale

16 November 2001

The original factory prototype Saleen S7 supercar will be offered for sale at the 31st Annual Barrett-Jackson Classic Car Auction in Scottsdale, AZ, January 16th - 20th, 2002.

Saleen, Inc., a specialty vehicle manufacturer for 18 years, created the first true American supercar to take on the most exclusive cars in the world with the launch of the Saleen S7. Conceived to combine the performance of a track-only racecar with the driving pleasure of a road car, the S7 incorporates the very best in modern racing motor technology with the best in luxury and creature comforts.

Introduced in August 2000 at the famed Monterey Historic Races, the original Factory Prototype #0001 was used to announce the Saleen S7 road-going supercars and the Saleen S7R racecars. The aerodynamic carbon-fibre body, tube frame construction, 200 mile-per- hour road going supercar features an aluminum 7-litre engine putting out 550 hp and capable of 0 to 60 in under 4 secs.
