  1. 10.71seconds on Quarter mile ?

    what is that to hail ?

    compare 10.71s against the Koenigsegg CCR's time at 9seconds flat.

  3. 10.71seconds on Quarter mile ?

    9 seconds flat is bullshit...

    this isn't a purpose built drag call after all, it will have severe traction problems up to 70-80 mph
     
  4. 10.71seconds on Quarter mile ?

    I was thinking the same
     
  5. SAR, 2 1000hp S7TTs on the streets already?

    Someone has mentioned that there's at least 2 1000+hp S7TTs on the streets already.

    1. Can I ask you, how many 1000hp S7s has Saleen delivered, and how many more are being built/under order?

    2. Also, when can we expect Saleen to release performance/test figures?

    Many thanks.
     
  6. SAR, 2 1000hp S7TTs on the streets already?

    There are at least 2 in customer hands, at this time, as sales is not my area I am not sure how many others are on order.
    As far as performance #s go on the 1000, dont look for those until late this year, as the Mag testing has only just been done for the 750hp, ( you will see some #s never posted for a street car before, actually done by the magazines, not manufacture #s)
     
  7. SAR, 2 1000hp S7TTs on the streets already?

    Much thanks for your prompt reply.

    Another question:
    Does the water-to-air intercooler add much weight to the 1000hp car?
    I'm guessing the weight increase wouldn't be much, less than 100lbs probably.
     
  8. SAR, 2 1000hp S7TTs on the streets already?

    It adds about 18 lbs
     
  9. SAR, 2 1000hp S7TTs on the streets already?

    wow thats pretty good. how effective is it, like how much does it change the figures?

    assuming you put the same intercooler on the regular S7 twin turbo, how much more power will it make?
     
  10. 10.71seconds on Quarter mile ?

    thats fast, i'v heard the enzo does it in 10.8
     
  11. SAR, 2 1000hp S7TTs on the streets already?

    So SAR what kind of date can we look at for official unveiling?
     
  12. SAR, 2 1000hp S7TTs on the streets already?

    I am not in the marketing dept or sales so that is not my area. We have done the unvieling alreay for the aftermarket kit at 1000.
     
  13. SAR, 2 1000hp S7TTs on the streets already?

    OK, but you are perfromance. Has the 260+mph been track confrimed? if so, what is the top speed? And 0-60 times? I know you aren't sales and marketing or w/e, but what kind of price range are we looking at?
     
  14. SAR, 2 1000hp S7TTs on the streets already?

    I've asked SAR that before and he was pretty tight-lipped about the figures.

    I think the price for the 1000hp kit has been released, if I remember correctly its an extra 42,000pounds on top of the S7TT price here in the UK. That's roughly US$80k extra on top of the $555k.
     
  15. SAR, 2 1000hp S7TTs on the streets already?

    not that much more then...not that I'll ever afford one anyway...I only want to know one thing...has a top speed in excess of the Veyron's unlimited 258 actuatlyy been track acheived? Or just wind tunnel estimates?
     
  16. SAR, 2 1000hp S7TTs on the streets already?

    he won't confirm that either. He said both wind-tunnel and track testing has been done, both successfully.

    We'll just have to wait.
     
  17. SAR, 2 1000hp S7TTs on the streets already?

    Goddamit. Are there any plans for a car after the S7? like an S8 or something like that?
     
  18. SAR, 2 1000hp S7TTs on the streets already?

    Saleen will anounce "official speeds" after a run at a sanctioned location, by sanctioned timers have done the measuring. There is not a sanctioned top speed run from any of the manufacutres that are talking speed and times. So nothing is official yet from anybody, just some posted #s & speeds. This will be later in thr year, we have a full new race program on our plates for this year, and feel the effort is better placed at the moment proving our car on the track. ( you will notice that the cars that are all posting speed #s are not going to actually race) With the way things are going if we want an all out speed record we can pull out one of the streamliners we did, put in a S7 engine, run 325 or so and yell fastest street car. We have still yet to see any of these cars on the streets or in public hands in the states.
     
  19. SAR, 2 1000hp S7TTs on the streets already?

    SAR has also answered this earlier. The S7 is so named as it has a 7.0L engine. They have no need for an 8L engine <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>

    The S7 is already a superb car as it is. It has been in active endurance racing since 2000. If you look at the other hypercars claiming the fastest production car crown such as the Bugatti Veyron and Koenigsegg CCR/CCX, none of them are actively raced, either by the factory or privateer teams.

    Even other supercars such as the Ferrari Enzo, the Pagani Zonda F are not involved in active racing.

    Although, there are other supercars that are raced, eg. MC12, Aston Martins, the Corvette C5Rs, C6Rs, etc.
     
  20. SAR, 2 1000hp S7TTs on the streets already?

    Yes, I know it's would really be the fastest car if it were to break the speed and 0-60 records, because it is all an active racer in many categories of racing. So, no plnas for another supercar from Saleen?
     
  21. SAR, 2 1000hp S7TTs on the streets already?

    what do you mean another supercar? like another model? unlikely anytime soon

    improvements yes, but a new model? see ferrari makes new models, because its models arent just about preformance, theyre about a MODEL. the S7 isnt really a model IMO, its the street version of a race car.
     
  22. SAR, 2 1000hp S7TTs on the streets already?

    Yeah, and I understand Saleen is a smaller company than soem other manufacturers, like ferrari, but I would think they might want have another model/ replacement planned since in not that long at all it will be a decade old.
     
  23. SAR, 2 1000hp S7TTs on the streets already?

    Also, will the S7 ever appear on Top Gear? So there will be at least one American supercar Jeremy Clarkson will like�
     
  24. SAR, 2 1000hp S7TTs on the streets already?

    actually clarkson loves the ford GT, in fact, when he bought one and the POS broke down, he bought another one!

    i too really want them to test it, maybe this year now that its coming to europe they will actually test it?
     
  25. SAR, 2 1000hp S7TTs on the streets already?

    Just for info the part that broke on his car was a car alarm system that was done in England and has nothing to do with the STD GT build, he then made such a stink over it and insisted that Ford buy back the car.
