Even those approaching the S7 without knowing what it was knew one thing: it is very special.
What the Saleen S7 lacks in name and style recognition, it more than makes up for in brute width and hip-hugging overall height. The pop-up doors show just how light all the S7’s carbon-fiber bodywork is, while the piping for the twin-turbo engine is extremely visible under the rear canopy.
Saleen itself as a company is in dire straights financially at the moment, so this rare beast might go down as one of the all-American hypercar greats.
