LMC is very proud to offer for sale this 2007 Saleen S7
In August 2000 during the Monterey Historic Races, Saleen unveiled an entirely original production vehicle that would usher in a new era of supercar design and performance and dominate racetracks worldwide, the Saleen S7. The S7 boasted a completely unique space frame aluminum bespoke chassis with carbon fiber bodywork originally developed for competition. Very much like its Ford predecessor the original GT40, the street version of the S7 was very much a street legal racecar with its primary design purpose to win races. On the track, the S7R quickly earned the respect of some of motorsport’s most seasoned professionals, achieving class wins at both the 12 Hours of Sebring and the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
“The S7 was immediately competitive in motorsports from day one, winning over 100 professional races at the world’s top racetracks including Daytona, Nürburgring, Silverstone, Imola, Spa-Francorchamps and the 24 Hours of Le Mans" said Saleen Automotive CEO and Founder, Steve Saleen.
Powered by a mid-mounted 7.0-liter V8 was designed by Saleen based on Ford’s Windsor small block and was factory rated at 550 horsepower and 525 lb-ft of torque. Components include an aluminum block, CNC-machined aluminum cylinder heads, a forged billet steel crankshaft, billet steel connecting rods, forged pistons, beryllium exhaust valve seats, stainless-steel valves, and titanium valve retainers. Induction is through a carbon-fiber plenum, a magnesium throttle body, and a magnesium intake manifold with individual runners. Additional features include a side-mounted water pump, dual radiators with electric cooling fans, dry-sump lubrication with dual oil coolers, and a stainless-steel quad-exit exhaust system
This example offered here for sale is one of four naturally-aspirated, 550hp examples equipped with the Saleen Competition Package. At an additional $75,000 over the base price, the package endowed the Saleen-specific 427ci V8 engine with an uprated camshaft, upgraded intake manifold and exhaust and reprogrammed ECU. The original owner factory ordered his S7 in Bright Silver with a Black leather/Grey Alcantara interior. Additionally, larger and more comfortable custom seats were fitted and the original seats and belts were retained, and will be included in the sale should the new owner wish to reinstall them. Other features include optional chromed wheels and a factory-upgraded touchscreen sound system. With only 9,400 miles on the odometer, this example presents extremely well having been used sparingly.
With just 78 total units produced and incredible race winning pedigree the Saleen S7 is undoubtedly one of the best Supercars produced in its era. This example being one of only four Competition Package equipped S7’s presents a rare opportunity to own one of America’s greatest supercars.
