History

The following section is an excerpt from Wikipedia's Saleen S7 page on 22 August 2020, text available via the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License.

The Saleen S7 is a hand-built, high-performance sports car designed and built by American automobile manufacturer Saleen Automotive Inc. Developed jointly by Steve Saleen for the initial concept, direction and engine, Hidden Creek Industries for resources and initial funding, Ray Mallock Ltd. (RML) for chassis, suspension and aerodynamics, and Phil Frank for the body and interior CAD design and development.

It was the first fully proprietary car produced by Saleen and became America's fifth mid-engine production sports car coming after the Consulier GTP, Mosler Raptor, Vector W8, and M12. The S7 debuted on August 19, 2000 at the Monterey Historic Races. The all-aluminium engine is a bored-and-stroked derivative of Ford's 351 Windsor small block with Cleveland-style canted valve heads, not based on the FE big-block. It proved remarkably tractable and flexible for a high-output requirement—550 hp (410 kW) at 6,400 rpm. In 2005, the S7 gained a more powerful twin-turbocharged powerplant which boosted engine power to 750 hp (559 kW) and top speed to 248 mph (399 km/h).

A silver 2004 S7 appeared in the film Bruce Almighty.
