Best American Car ever made???

Discussion in '2000 Saleen S7' started by CarreraGtRacer, Sep 18, 2002.

  1. What do ya'll think? I don't want everyone to get pissed but do you guys think this is the best American car ever made? The specs are awesome and it looks good to. I personally think its the best American car made.
     
  2. Re: Best American Car ever made???

    i'd be tempted to say yes, if it wasnt ridiculously clear that the corvette has had this title. this is just my opinion though, as a truely good sports car has to provide reasonable power/performance for the price your paying, and im sorry, but for $300,000 more then a Z06, i wanna be able to beat a vette by more then fractions of a second.
     
  3. Re: Best American Car ever made???

    well yeah, ill have to agree that this cars performance isn't that impressive for a car close to $400,000. Sure its an exotic, but i would rather buy a corvette z06 and put $100,000 and it would be alot faster than this and it would be made the way i feel would be comfortable to me.

    my favorite japanese car? Nissan Skyline R34 GT-R
    my favorite american car? Corvette Z06 or Mustang Cobra R
    my favorite european car? TVR Tuscan S (sick!!)
    my car in the garage? Nissan 270R

    How about this: Corvette as the best sports/production car to come out of the US, and Saleen S7 the best exotic/limited production car from the US.

    I say this as the two cars con't really be compared.

    well i don't know, with the new dodge viper comin out its tough to tell, of course this car is a little faster, but it cost 400G's. The viper while a bit slower is only at the most 90G's, so ur lookin at a better bang for the buck. So for me its probably atie between those 2
     
  6. Re: Best American Car ever made???

    Man, I'll I know is that this is my dream car. This car is my favoritest, and nobody, and I mean nobody can diss this car.
     
  7. Re: Best American Car ever made???

    Linginfelter Vette (dont know how to spell), Mosler MT900.
     
  8. Re: Best American Car ever made???

    yeah i'd have too say so. the only thing is that when you say best that also brings price into it and that's a big pricetag. but if you talking about speed, handleing, and stuff like that it's the best without a dout
     
  9. Re: Best American Car ever made???

    It can be the best american car ever made, because it finally solves the problem that the american cars "Cannot handle" as many people says. This car will make nightmares for some U.S. car haters.
     
  10. Re: Best American Car ever made???

    Thats true. This is the best American handling ever made. The Z06 and SRT10 follow closely behind but I'd take the S7 over all of them.
     
  11. Re: Best American Car ever made???

    i agree with Carrera Gt on this one
     
  12. Re: Best American Car ever made???

    I want one.
     
  13. Re: Best American Car ever made???

    Someone would buy one of these as a status symbol, I mean if you saw a Zo6 driving down the road next to this - I don't know about you - but my eyes would be on the Saleen.
     
  14. Re: Best American Car ever made???

    I'd be tempted to tip my hat to the mosler mt900S on this one. Or if we're talking best car for its time, undoubtably the gt40.
     
  15. Re: Best American Car ever made???

    c'mon it's a ford
    give me a break
    check out the vette-based mosler MT900s
     
  16. Re: Best American Car ever made???

    Dude, STFU you idiot . Get your head out of your ass and realise that just because a car is from a certain company doesn't give you the right to slam it just because of that. If it was a Chevy you would use this as a comparison to everything not Chevy you car-racist fruit.
     
  17. Re: Best American Car ever made???

    I have to agree with you, this car is the best American car built, in my opinion at least, sure there are American cars that go 230+mph, but speed isnt everything to a car, it has to have style, special characteristics, good statistics, and everything in between. I think that the Saleen S7 has all that a car can have, and this is some reasons why i think that the Saleen S7 is the best American car, i love this car, its in my top 10 for sure, without a doubt.
     
  18. Re: Best American Car ever made???

    Thanks...<A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/smile.gif"></A> I really do think that the Saleen S7 would leave even some European cars in the dust. I think the American cars suck crisis is over thanks to Steve Saleen.
     
  19. Re: Best American Car ever made???

    That's like saying the Mosler is a Chevy. No, this is not a Ford.
     
  20. Re: Best American Car ever made???

    Its not a Ford. It's a Saleen.
     
  21. Re: Best American Car ever made???

    I think it is beautifull, and since it is based on a race car (not like the Viper) the handling is probably very good. The only american competitor I can see coming is the Ford GT (remake of Ford GT40) that will be launched next year.

    This car is a serious competitor in the Lamborghini Murceliago / Pagani Zonda class.
     
  22. Re: Best American Car ever made???

    this car looks nice as hell... i have a poster of it on my wall.. and all my friends think that its a ferrari.


    i need new friends...
     
  23. Re: Best American Car ever made???

    lol. A Ferrari huh?
     
  24. Re: Best American Car ever made???

    AS far as it being the best...no, this car is way overly priced in my opinion. For 2/3 of this S7's price you can get a car that would mop the floor with this.
     
  25. Re: Best American Car ever made???

    You get what you pay for don't ya?
