The world of exceptional car is often the case - the name says - exotic! Let's say that our continent does not have a tradition of exotic car as well anchored as the European continent. Even Japan can boast more history at this level if we take into account some mythical sports models. Of course, the history of the Vector does not go unnoticed, while the exploits of Shelby Supercars (SSC) to wrest the title of the production car the fastest in the world is not to denigrate. There are at least another fireball typically "made in USA" that deserves attention: the Saleen S7.
The climax of Steve Saleen
The story behind this other missile land begins long before 2000, date of introduction of the S7. Steve Saleen, founder of the company that bears his name and experienced pilot, will quickly climb the ladder of racing. His racing team will also be highly successful in the 80 and 90. Soon, the name will be associated with the Saleen Ford Mustang in this world. Indeed, the preparer will offer fans of ponycar can improve the performance of their car.
However, this was in 2000 that Saleen will really mark the segment with the S7 supercar. When he left, the small manufacturer said it had launched the "production car fastest in the world." To add credibility to this new, Saleen will push even the audacity by developing a version for the competition, the S7R.
Inspired by the racing
Unlike the models on which the company has worked over time (Ford Mustang, Ford Focus, Ford Explorer, Dodge Challenger, Chevrolet Camaro, etc..), The S7 adopts a much more elegant line, worthy of true exotic. We recognize quickly enough the heritage of racing in the design of the S7. The plastic body reinforced with carbon fiber strangely reminiscent of the cars involved in the Le Mans 24 Hours.
The many ventilation flaps, both front, sides or even on the roof, help to enhance the image of racing car for the road. The rims are also beautiful to watch, while the long door-to-rear overhang is also a tribute to the endurance racing cars. The doors in fin obviously added a little spice, while the rear incorporates a diffuser

132955 / 2007 Ford Saleen Mustang Parnelli Jones 302
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/cuqqc4g
As one of only 500 cars produced to honor legendary Indianapolis 500 winner
Parnelli Jones, this spotless 2007 Parnelli Jones 302 is perhaps Saleens
According to Steve Saleen, the Parnelli Jones 302 was designed to capture
the raw, aggressive attitude with which Parnelli raced; therefore, you
could order any color car you wanted so long as it was Grabber Orange.
Naturally, since this is an essentially new car, the paint looks simply
amazing and has barely even seen sunlight, much less rain or inclement
weather. Fit and finish is exceptional, thanks to the largely hand-built
nature of the custom Saleen add-ons. And despite performing everyday tasks
as flawlessly as a stock Mustang, the car has been completely
re-envisioned to incorporate many subtle tweaks which recall the glory days
of Trans Am racing.
Lift Parnelli Jones #87s custom shaker hood and you'll find a clean and
crisp new 302 cubic inch Saleen built SOHC three valve V8 which produces an
SAE certified 400 horsepower and 390 lb./ft.
of torque. Equipped with a high compression, high revving valve train, this
killer small block utilizes a lightweight aluminum flywheel, a forged
crank, forged rods, forged pistons, ported heads, variable valve timing and
a Saleen PowerFlash tune to provide thrilling acceleration all the way up
to its 7000 RPM redline. What that means for you is a rocket-like sprint to
triple digit speeds from an engine that never seems to feel like it's out
of breath. And, like the legendary Trans Am Fords it honors, this car
doesn't carry the imbalanced weight and mechanical stigma of having a big
engine shoehorned into a tight engine bay. The pristine small block fits
naturally between the cars glossy Grabber Orange fenders and presents a
factory fresh appearance with no grease or renegade fluids anywhere to be
In keeping with both Steve Saleen and Parnelli Jones race ancestry, this
limited edition Mustang was
designed utilizing Saleens own precision suspension. Behind small block
engine, a rugged Tremec 5-speed manual transmission drives a tall 3.73 rear
end, which makes for some spectacular wheel spin in first and second gear,
and astounding acceleration when you get the launch just right. Years ago,
Saleens were criticized for their harsh ride, but those days are long gone.
Taking advantage of the new Mustang's more rigid Macpherson front
and 3 link rear chassis, Saleen engineers carefully chose springs, shocks,
and sway bars that improve responsiveness without sacrificing ride quality.
Exhaust is expelled through a
traditional Saleen stainless steel system that provides their legacy low
resonating sound. And braking is handled by "Saleen" branded four piston
front calipers which clamp large slotted rotors and OEM Ford rear calipers
which squeeze original factory rotors. At the corners, 19 inch Mini-lite
style racing wheels feature cool Saleen/Parnelli Jones center caps and wear
red labeled 275/35 front and 275/40 rear Pirelli P-Zero performance
Inside, Saleen makes the Ford interior its own with leather upholstery and
plenty of signage. The brand new leather seats have been fitted with bright
Grabber Orange inserts, orange stitching and centered Parnelli Jones
emblems, and the ornate Mustang dash houses a Saleen vintage
instrumentation panel which displays "Saleen Parnelli Jones Edition"
scripts among white letters on black backgrounds. At the center of the
dash, an integrated twin gauge pod which displays oil pressure and
temperature sits above both Steve Saleen and Parnelli Jones autographs. In
front of the driver, a traditional Mustang steering wheel has been
fitted with a "Saleen Parnelli Jones Edition" emblem, and in front of the
passenger, a Bud Moore autograph sits above the cars serialized Limited
Edition dash plaque. Between the seats, a traditional Ford console holds a
Saleen Quick Shifter that's complete with a custom satin finished Parnelli
Jones shift knob. And above the seats, a tight headliner is stretched above
visors which are still sealed in their factory plastic.
This Parnelli Jones 302 is the ultimate Saleen when it comes to total
driving experience, and with only 40 miles of drive time, it's an
essentially brand new piece of Mustang and Saleen history. Call,
