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
