Saleen Autosport MARCH 88/C

Hi everybody, this is a car I started 20+ years ago and put it up while life happened. I just finished it. The starting point is the AMT Kraco car. I made the decals on a office copier, and from the Kraco sheet. The road wings are cut down monogram with .010 sheet styrene end plates.

Mr. Barwick is the owner and had ran the Saleen in time trials after getting his license. The last time it was ran was at the 50th Mustang show at Charlotte NC. It is super dependable, awesome to drive and has never been in any incidents. Seat belts are out of date, tires are still great, just changed the oil and brake fluid.

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.

ACEMCO S7R (04-029R) HITS THE OPEN MARKET

By: KURT ERNST on January 7, 2016 at 9:00 am
Original Article: HEMMINGS.COM

Hemmings Find of the Day – 2004 Saleen S7R

In 2004, the ACEMCO Racing team debuted a new Saleen S7R in the American Le Mans Series (ALMS) Championship, placing second in the GTS class behind the all-conquering Corvette C5-R. Chassis 029R, the Saleen S7R driven by Terry Borcheller, David Brabham and Johnny Mowlem, later went over to Europe, competing against Maserati MC12s, Corvette C6.Rs, Nissan GT-Rs and Ford GTs in the FIA GT series. Now, this 2004 Saleen S7R, last run at this year’s Classic 24 at Daytona, is for sale on Hemmings.com, giving fans a chance to purchase an American endurance racing sports car once run at the sport’s highest levels. Prepared for last November’s Daytona event, the car features a fresh engine rebuild with just four hours of use, and is said to be in “fantastic condition,” both technically and cosmetically. From the seller’s description:

2004 Saleen S7R ALMS GT1. This is chassis 029R the 2004 ACEMCO car that finished 3rd at the Championship, later raced FIA GT 2009 and beat many times the MC12s. This is the very first “evolution” car after the S7R was totally redesigned and built in CA ( previous ones were built in UK by RML ). It received major evolutions in terms of aero, suspension, gearbox, brakes and reliability. Acemco had their engines built by ELAN ( a Don PANOZ company ) now unrestricted and producing 730HP. The car is in fantastic technical and cosmetical condition and has been totally rebuilt from the chassis ( engine by ELAN ), only 4 hours since. It comes with a few spares and is ready to race. Raced the 2015 Daytona Classic, constantly lapped in 1,46 with non professional driver and unbeatable in GT. The evolution S7Rs are extremely quick and easy to drive. A real ALMS legend. Car located in Luxembourg and welcome to any inspections.

Price: $725,000
Location: Howald,
Availability: Available
