In-game description[]

"An ultra-special supercar from Saleen, to which there is also a Le Mans spec car."



The Saleen S7 is an elegant midship sports car that perfectly fits the description of "supercar". The Le Mans prototype racecar was released before the street car, and with that kind of detail and performance, it had an unprecedented position for a street car.

The body construction is a slightly old fashioned, aluminum honeycomb composite center hub with steel tube sub frames extending towards the front and back. The front and rear suspension were double wishbones using racing style long arms. The coilover dampers, and brakes developed in a collaboration between Saleen and Brembo, are pretty much racing spec.

The V8 OHV engine may seem ordinary, but this is a Saleen original. An all aluminum, miniaturized engine based on the Ford big block design, it produces 550 HP from its 7-liter displacement, 0-60 mph acceleration is 3.3 seconds, with 1-100 mph in 8.9 seconds, and a quarter mile time of 11.8 seconds. Top speed is over 215 mph, and obviously its performance is exceptional.

Mechanically speaking, the specs of the street version were not much different from the Le Mans Prototype Saleen S7R, but its interior was filled with unreal luxury.

Of course air-conditioning and an audio system were standard, but of the two full bucket seats made of Connolly Leather, the driver's side seat is custom made to fit the owner.
