Just like Carroll Shelby decades before him, Steve Saleen made a name for himself in motorsports and developed a close relationship with Ford Motor Company racing Mustangs in the SCCA Trans-Am series. In 2000, a new supercar came on the scene and debuted on August 19, 2000 at the Monterey Vintage and Historic Races. The S7 was the brainchild of Steve Saleen and represented the culmination of all his racing expertise. It was conceived as a state-of-the-art, all-American rival to Europe’s supercar establishment. With the assistance of famed automotive engineering company Ray Mallock, Ltd. (RML) in the U.K., a completely unique space frame-derived design consisting of 4130 lightweight steel and aluminum honeycomb composite reinforcing panels resulted in an exceedingly light but extremely strong chassis. The bodywork made entirely of carbon-fiber was CAD designed and incorporated the use of scoops, spoilers, and other aerodynamic features to create split-channel airflow throughout the car, resulting in tremendous downforce and stability at high speeds.

A Ford cast, all aluminum V-8 block re-engineered by Saleen and displacing 427 cubic-inches was mounted amidship for optimal weight distribution and a perfect center of gravity. The engine was mated to a six-speed transaxle with a Saleen designed bell housing, and massive Brembo brakes with six-piston calipers; a competition suspension with dual stage coil springs kept the car's power in check.

From the outset, the S7 was developed for racing, with road-going examples constructed to meet homologation requirements. The first S7-R assembled by RML was completed in late 2000 and then immediately shipped to the United States to make its debut in the American Le Mans Series event at Laguna Seca Raceway. The S7-R quickly showed its capabilities, and a class victory at the 12 Hours of Sebring and a podium finish at the 24 Hours of Le Mans proved its potential. Class championships in various racing series soon followed. The S7's success on the track culminated in 2010 when the S7-R (chassis number 610) of Larbre Compétition won its only LMGT1 class victory at the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

The S7 road cars were normally aspirated like the competition cars, but for customers who wanted even more intensity, the S7 Twin Turbo was introduced in 2005. The engine was fitted with a pair of Garrett turbochargers and now produced 750 horsepower and 700-foot pounds of torque with 5.5 psi of boost making it the most powerful car of its day. To cope with the added power and increased speed, several mechanical and aerodynamic changes had to be made to the car. The front fenders were reshaped, and the front and rear diffusers were redesigned along with a new rear spoiler resulting in 40 percent less drag and 60 percent more downforce at speed. One of the few internal changes to the twin-turbo engine was a swap from hydraulic to solid lifters, allowing the engine to rev higher and harder. The compression ratio was also lowered from a very high 12.0:1 in the naturally aspirated engine to a still quite high 11.0:1 ratio. For increased durability, Saleen engineers also added oil squirters to cool the undersides of the pistons.

This is car #74 and it is believed to be possibly the last Saleen S7 built. It is stated that a total of 75 S7s including competition cars were built, but actual production numbers have never been verified. It is one of only 13 Twin Turbos built in 2006 and is exceedingly rare. Finished in black with a flawless exterior, this Saleen is as new with only 1,153 miles on the odometer. The black interior is perfect and Steve Saleen's signature is visible underneath the engine cover. The CarFax is clean and documents just three owners from new. One would be hard-pressed to find a more pristine example than that offered here with low miles and in such perfectly preserved condition.

Capable of sprints to 60 miles an hour in less than three seconds on its way to a reported top speed of 248 miles per hour, the Saleen S7 Twin Turbo is ridiculously fast even by today’s lofty standards. Designed, built, and born in the U.S.A., the S7 was the first fully American, mid-engine supercar. With its prodigious power and racing pedigree, it was more than a match for the best Europe had to offer, and it has earned its place in the pantheon of great supercars. Exceedingly rare and seldom seen in the market, this is a unique opportunity to acquire a highly coveted and collectible automobile that is a must for any serious collection of supercars.
