Now Is Your Chance: 1,300-Mile 2005 Saleen S7 Hits BaT

Tired of looking at that Saleen poster hanging in your garage? Well, your prayers have just been answered. Up for sale on BringATrailer is a 2005 Saleen S7 Twin Turbo with only 1,300 miles. This isn’t your average Saleen, this example has been modified by Saleen with the Competition Package. 

2005 Saleen S7

The Saleen S7 was produced from 2000 to 2007 and it was the sixth all-American production car to come with a mid-engine. Featuring an all-carbon body, the S7 weighs in at only 2,865lbs while putting down 750hp from the factory.

This S7’s 7-liter twin-turbocharged V8 has been tuned to 850hp and comes packing a ton of extras with the Competition Package. This includes revised a carbon-fiber front spoiler, a rear diffuser, and a body-width rear wing.

From the factory, the car came with a six-speed manual transaxle and a limited-slip differential. In addition to having center-locking forged wheels, the car also comes with A/C, a backup camera, and a paint protection film installed in 2020. 

Right now the car is sitting at a bid of $440K with just under 5 days left on the auction. Now is the time to grab your dream Saleen and aside from being a collector item, it’s one purchase you won’t regret.

The Saleen S7 Will Return With 1,500 hp

That Will Make Its Top Speed 289 mph

Some cars just won’t die. At the top of that list right now is the Saleen S7. The car originally came out in the year 2000, and now 19 years later, the Jiangsu Secco Automobile Technology Corporation will bring the model back again—it has done so in the past—with even more horsepower.

This time, the car makes a whopping 1,500 horsepower from a 7.0-liter Ford Windsor V-8 with two turbochargers. The engine will also produce about 1,327 lb-ft of torque, according to Jalopnik. That kind of power will rocket the S7 from 0-60 mph in just 2.2 seconds and give the car an insane top speed of 298 mph. 

The company has said it will produce the vehicle in limited numbers. The last time the company decided to sell the S7, they made only seven models. It’ll be interesting to see how many it decides to make this time around. We’re hoping for 70, but we highly doubt that. 

There’s no word yet either on the price of this insane car, but you can bet it’ll be an expensive machine. The Saleen S7 isn’t the only car that the company is working on. It also has the S1 and an SUV and an electric minicar, according to Motor Authority. We’re pumped to see a new higher-performance S7, but we want to see those new cars be made a priority, too.
