2008 Dodge Challenger SRT-8 6.1L Supercharged Saleen 570 prototype #1

This is a car with an extremely unique history. This car was purchased at Orlando Dodge in July of 2008 to be the first SMS (Steve Mark Saleen) 570 Challenger. It was shipped to SMS in August of 2008 with 8 miles. This is the 1st vehicle ever produced that was not a mustang with the Saleen lineage. As you may know Steve Saleen has a long history as an American racing icon and low volume supercar manufacture. The car build process was finished January of 2009 where it was unveiled at a launch party at a Orange county nightclub. http://soec.org/steve-saleen-unveils-the-sms-570-challenger/

After the launch the car was shipped to the Barrett Jackson auction in AZ for display. The vehicle was then sent to the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance where it was on display on the 18th green. http://partywave.deviantart.com/art/SALEEN-Dodge-Challenger-SMS-135605616

There is a unique opportunity to own a true piece of American muscle car history. This car has under 30k miles currently and is in very good condition. It has always been garaged and covered. Vehicle has been driven and does have a few small spots and scratches.

I will say that I am more than reasonable on the selling price for this car. Original widow sticker price on this car was 91k dollars. You can take this car anywhere and it will be always the center of attention.

Description
Lot #438.1 – This 1989 Saleen Mustang time capsule is #178 with only 661 actual miles (mileage not indicated on the title). It’s offered by Gas Monkey Garage. Ford didn’t do a 25th Anniversary Mustang, but Steve Saleen did, introducing his SSC on April 17, 1989. Based in California, Saleen was a veteran SCCA Trans-Am and Formula Atlantic racer. Saleen owned several Shelby Mustangs and decided to follow in Shelby’s footsteps and make stock Mustangs into personal high-performance cars. The result was a limited-edition run of specially modified 5.0-liter V8 Mustangs that are instantly recognizable by special paint, graphics and interior combinations that any high-performance automotive enthusiast will appreciate. Engine, suspension, exhaust and brake upgrades are enjoyed by only a handful of lucky owners that get to experience these cars first-hand. This particular example, serial #00178, has been meticulously cared for in a private collection and is only now offered for sale, having been stored in a climate-controlled environment for the past 27 years. 5-speed manual transmission.

S7 TWIN TURBO (06-073) TO HIT RM AUCTIONS, MOTOR CITY

S7 Twin Turbo 06-073
S7 Twin Turbo 06-073

Plymouth, Michigan – 30 July, 2016

2006 Saleen S7
Chassis no. 1S9SB18106S000073
Serial no. S7-06-073
www.rmauctions.com

750 bhp, 427 cu. in. DOHC aluminum V-8 with twin Garrett turbochargers, six-speed manual transaxle, four-wheel fully adjustable independent suspension, and four-wheel ventilated Brembo disc brakes. Wheelbase: 106.2 in.

  • One of the final Saleen S7s built
  • Two owners and just over 300 miles from new
  • Serviced in May of 2016 and ready for the road

Born and bred right here in the United States, the all-new Saleen S7 was the brainchild of Steve Saleen and marked his company’s first venture into the world of the supercar. While it had an excellent reputation for tuning Mustangs, the company had never before built and designed a car of its own name, and so the world definitely took notice when Saleen unveiled the S7. Boasting a completely unique chassis clothed in svelte carbon-fiber bodywork, the S7 was developed for racing, with road-going examples constructed to meet homologation requirements and please eager customers. Fitted with a mid-mounted 427-cubic inch V-8 engine at its heart, it could truly compete with the world’s fastest and most exclusive supercars, boasting a top speed of 220 mph and a 0–60 mph time of 3.3 seconds.

Looking to turn up the intensity of the S7 even more, Saleen introduced the S7 Twin Turbo in 2005 to great fanfare. With the addition of a pair of Garrett turbochargers, the S7 Twin Turbo supplied one of the fastest cars that money could buy, with even more horsepower, torque, and speed. Horsepower was raised to 750, and the car was fitted with new front and rear fenders, along with a slightly revised aerodynamics package. The car’s performance was nothing short of ludicrous, boasting a 0–60 mph time of 2.8 seconds and a top speed of 248 mph.

Of the 13 S7 Twin Turbos produced for the 2006 model year, the example offered here is one of the last, and therefore one of the very last S7s ever built. Finished new in Lizstick Red, it was acquired by its current owner from the gentleman who purchased the car new. Today, it is presented in absolutely factory-fresh condition and is said to exhibit exceptional build quality throughout. Having only traveled just over 300 miles from new, it is undoubtedly one of the lowest-mileage examples in existence. Last serviced in May of 2016, it still retains its original window sticker, as well as its luggage set and car cover.

Both today and when it was new, the Saleen S7 stood proud against Europe’s supercar establishment as a fully American supercar. Still incredibly fast even by today’s lofty standards, the Saleen S7 has already proven to be a highly coveted and collectible automobile and will surely only garner more attention in the future. One would be hard-pressed to find a more pristine example than that offered here, which has been carefully preserved by only two private owners and driven just over 300 miles… thus far!

This car is beyond words, or the pictures I can provide. This 1000+ horsepower mustang, NHRA certified to do 8.5 seconds, and show quality without blemish to compete with some of the best cars ever built… Can’t be properly described with the words and pictures I can provide. When turned on, this car shakes our entire building, and it sounds absolutely incredible when revved up, almost deafening. If you are a serious collector, or horsepower freak, this car might be for you. There is only one car like this in the world, and it would have cost $200k plus to build. It is a Saleen Speed-labs built car, with one of the most beautiful beryllium orange paint jobs we have ever seen. There are many custom one ‘of’s’ on this car. It has tons of modification to reduce weight, including carbon fiber body panels (hood, trunk) as well as much more. It is around 1000 pounds less than a similar Saleen. This car was owned by Ed Hinker, Mustang enthusiast and close personal friend of Steve Saleen. When Steve was asked a couple months ago about the value of this car, he said at least $130k. We are able to offer a collector this opportunity to purchase at a fantastic price. This is a LOT more car than a Cobra Jet, and much more unique. Don’t miss out on this beautiful Mustang.

SCM: COBRA VS. SALEEN IN SCOTTSDALE

By: KEITH MARTIN on February 1, 2016
Original Article: SPORTSCARMARKET.COM

Cobra vs. Saleen in Scottsdale

Who wouldn’t like driving a Saleen S7 or a 289 Cobra?

I had the chance to get behind the wheel of 15 top-flight collector cars during the last two weeks while I evaluated them for “What’s My Car Worth?” on Velocity.

Normally during Arizona Car Week, I spend as much time wandering from auction to auction as I do working on the television show. But this year we had to look at 30 cars from Barrett-Jackson and 15 from RM Sotheby’s. Consequently, I spent more time behind the wheel than I did in front of the auction block. As there were SCM reporters and staff at every auction, my absence had no impact on our reporting.

I put a few miles on some cars that I wouldn’t normally get to experience. Here are my thoughts on two of them:

The 2003 Saleen S7 reminded me of the McLaren 650S I drove last summer. It was light, fast and extremely responsive. For a hand-built car, it felt surprisingly solid — although I was a little concerned about the way the scissor-style door hinges flexed while opening.

The example I drove was one of four non-turbocharged cars built with the Competition Package. I didn’t find its ride overly harsh, and it was not difficult to drive. The Saleen shifted easily, and there was plenty of power at all rpm ranges.

It sold at Barrett-Jackson for $451,000, less than we thought it would bring. I think at that price it represented a solid value for the new owner.

The second car I enjoyed the most was a 1965 Shelby Cobra 289 roadster. It had a lot of eyeball, with attractive (although incorrect) silver stripes down the center of the dark-blue car. Its sidepipe exhaust (also not correct) provided a high entertainment factor as you went down the road.

Fitted with four Webers instead of a single 4-barrel carburetor, the Cobra had more than enough power to spin the wheels on demand. I’ve driven quite a few Cobras, and this was a good one. It had the feel of a car that had been loved and enjoyed, rather than a trailer queen with suspect handling and braking. It tracked straight and stopped quickly without drama. It pulled hard with no muss or fuss.

There’s nothing like sitting behind the gauge-bedecked dashboard in a Cobra and imagining what it was like when they were driven in anger, beating all of their European and American competitors to the checkered flag, race after race after race.

If I had to choose between the Saleen and the Cobra, I’d take the Cobra. It’s not as “good” a car as the Saleen, as automotive technology has come a long way in nearly half a century. Certainly the Saleen is faster, corners better and stops more quickly.

But for a Saturday afternoon blast on a back road, the perfect cacophony from the Cobra’s open exhaust and four Webers would be very hard to top.

08-0026DR Speedlab Drag Car
08-0026DR Speedlab Drag Car

This is no ordinary Mustang.. This is a Saleen Extreme S302E Sterling edition. One of the baddest mustangs ever built, period. Everything inside and out is ultra high quality, and that of a supercar. It is extremely limited. There were only 25 of these cars produced, 6 of them were destroyed, 9 of them are not in the country. Making this one of 10 here in the states! There are two others available at this current moment being sold by the Mustang museum. Both of them are asking $97k. We have been lucky enough to get our hands on some of the ‘regular’ S302E Extreme mustangs, and they usually go for mid fifties with some decent mileage. We are offering this car at an ABSOLUTE steal. These cars were MSRP’d at $99,950, but many sold for way more money originally. This one sold for $120k new. This is Saleen & Mustang history. This car is in MINT condition, inside and out. All original. It comes with TWO leather Saleen jackets, the 16 ounce sterling silver plaque, and everything else you would hope for. Don’t miss out on this one of a kind super-car.

This is the S302E- STERLING DR #26. Although this car is listed as #26, it is the very first Sterling to be produced. This car was built, and immediately sent to Saleen Speedlabs to create the ultimate race car. This car produces 835 HORSEPOWER at the engine, which creates over 700 wheel horsepower. This car can HOOK it also. After the Sterling was given to the Speedlabs, over $130k was invested into the car to turn it into what it is today. This car is non-duplicatable, but if it was, it should cost close to $200k to produce. It comes with TONS of extras as well, including the original sterling wheels, Saleen seats, and a bunch more! This car is programmed to run on race fuel, or can easily be programmed for 93 octane as well. This car is so powerful it can do a wheelie!!! This is the ultimate mustang, with every top quality part possible thrown at it. The seats are carbon fiber Saleen S7 seats, which cost well over $5k.. if you can even find a set for sale. There are many more details for this car, but I don’t want to end up with a book here. This is a 700 mile, 1 of 1 SUPERCAR being offered. This can easily be a your show car or weekend warrior. Don’t miss out on this VERY special Mustang.
