Let’s all remember the audacious Saleen S7

Yes, America had a supercar built by a tuning company

It’s quite easy to forget that America once had a supercar built by a tuning company specialized in turning regular Mustangs into monsters.

The Saleen S7 came to life in 2000 with a body made entirely out of carbon fiber and aero-tweaked in such a way that the car generated its own weight (1,300 kg/2,865 lb) in downforce at 160 mph (257 km/h).

Although initially fitted with a naturally-aspirated 7-liter V8 sourced from Ford, the supercar was later offered in a twin-turbo version that made 750 hp instead of the 550 hp churned out by the n/a engine.

Luckily, Doug DeMuro got his hands on a Saleen S7 fitted with the said naturally-aspirated powerplant, so there’s not point in continuing the discussion here.
