We never hear anything about this brute of a car. It is stunning a lovely shape and a great huge engine to boot.

How does it compare against other Hyper cars?

And what's its top speed????

I quite like them - It would have to be theTwin Turbo, sadly you very rarely hear about them in the UK but over in Florida where I used to live, there was a 1,258bhp example not far from me. It was fast and was a familiar sight at the drag races.

I would think its the type of car that only the best drivers could get anywhere near its limits. Saying that I bet when you did get a nice open road and you floor the loud pedal it would have you screaming like a little girl.
Great looking machines.

I did when I drove one for the first time, and that was on a video game and not even real - Oh how I loved Test Drive Unlimited 1. biggrin

I think it's a stunning car - I like most of Saleen's pieces, but the S7 is just incredible. Much like the Mercedes CLK GTR, I think it's just too rare, and too "race-car" to have ever taken off as a supercar. Let's face it, even if they made these cars in bigger numbers, other than rich Arabs posing in London, you'd hardly ever see them on the road, they are just too hardcore.

I should add, the CLK GTR is one of my all-time favourite supercars, it's an incredible piece of engineering. The fact you can, or could, buy something that is not a million miles from a trimmed and detuned Le Mans car for the road seems wild to me. In a hundred years when we all "ride" automated electric hover boxes to work, people will be aghast that people were ever allowed to drive such things on the road.
