View Here : 2018 Saleen S7
Saleen, the Ford tuner turned manufacturer of the S7 supercar, is back with a new supercar, the S1. Unlike the S7, which was built for outright speed, the S1 focuses more on weight and agility, using an all-aluminum tub, carbon fiber body panels, and a 450-horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder engine.
Shortly after the first edition was released, Saleen released the S7 twin turbo. This car, if you didn’t put two and two together, featured a twin-turbocharged V8. The original S7 was supposed to feature two turbos, but they got pulled from the original project for some reason.

2018 Saleen S1 Is A 180-MPH, $100K Carbon-Fiber Supercar Designed and built in the U.S., the first deliveries start in summer 2018. By Jake Holmes Nov 30, 2017
Priced at $100,000, the 2018 Saleen S1 makes its debut today at the Los Angeles Auto Show, with the first customer deliveries scheduled for “late summer” 2018. The small, striking car was all designed in-house in the U.S., with a carbon fiber body laid over an aluminum chassis to keep weight to 2,685 pounds (1,218 kilograms).
Established in the early 1980s as Saleen Autosport, the Corona-based business soon got a taste for the aftermarket and OEM development. In the year 2000, Saleen debuted its first mid-engine design in the form of the S7 supercar, but the Ford tuner turned manufacturer knew all too well that it can’t live through its past glories.
Saleen relies on the two turbos and four catalytic converters to remove the harshest notes from the firings of each of the nearly quart-sized cylinders. Ease into the throttle, and the S7 surges forward with the effortless ease created by 750 horses pushing against just 2968 pounds of car.
