That Will Make Its Top Speed 289 mph
Some cars just won’t die. At the top of that list right now is the Saleen S7. The car originally came out in the year 2000, and now 19 years later, the Jiangsu Secco Automobile Technology Corporation will bring the model back again—it has done so in the past—with even more horsepower.
This time, the car makes a whopping 1,500 horsepower from a 7.0-liter Ford Windsor V-8 with two turbochargers. The engine will also produce about 1,327 lb-ft of torque, according to Jalopnik. That kind of power will rocket the S7 from 0-60 mph in just 2.2 seconds and give the car an insane top speed of 298 mph.
The company has said it will produce the vehicle in limited numbers. The last time the company decided to sell the S7, they made only seven models. It’ll be interesting to see how many it decides to make this time around. We’re hoping for 70, but we highly doubt that.
There’s no word yet either on the price of this insane car, but you can bet it’ll be an expensive machine. The Saleen S7 isn’t the only car that the company is working on. It also has the S1 and an SUV and an electric minicar, according to Motor Authority. We’re pumped to see a new higher-performance S7, but we want to see those new cars be made a priority, too.
