Saleen Automotive Inc. (OTCQB: SLNN) Corona, CA – (September 17, 2016)
This year marks the 20th Anniversary of the beginning of a 7-year consecutive run of racing championships for Saleen. Sequentially from 1996 through 2002 Saleen clinched more than a dozen racing championships across the globe, with every test, race, and win contributing to the DNA makeup of the Saleen S7.

To commemorate these historic motorsport victories, Saleen has announced a new limited edition model, the Saleen S7 LM. Only 7 examples of this limited edition S7 will be produced and all will incorporate a unique livery, wheel, interior, and functional performance enhancements.

“True to our form, we are bringing back America’s only true supercar,” said Steve Saleen, President and CEO of Saleen Automotive, “We are celebrating our winning heritage and advancing the performance DNA that Saleen was built around.”

The Saleen S7 was initially unveiled in Monterey, CA. Labeled as America’s Supercar, it is the most successful supercar model ever. The S7R race version has won at every major racetrack in the world, including Daytona, Sebring, Nurburgring, and the prestigious 24 Hours of LeMans. The street version has starred in several Hollywood blockbusters, including being driven by “God” in Bruce Almighty.

The new S7 LM supercar will be powered by a 7.0L twin-turbo engine rated at 1,000 horsepower and each one will be hand built at Saleen’s Corona, CA headquarters.

Saleen Automotive Inc. Corona, CA – (September 17, 2016) Steve Saleen announced today, during the 20th Annual Saleen Show and Open House, that Saleen Automotive acquired the S7 properties and are building seven cars in a limited edition continuation series, this new S7 LM, will celebrate the final LeMans win from 2010. Features to include exposed carbon fiber, advanced electronics, suspension and 1000hp. Estimated price for this American supercar is $1,000,000.


Update: Sept. 19, 2016

This was an exciting announcement, preceded by Steve sharing the challenges the company has had in recent years in rebuilding the company, including recent struggles in delivering vehicles to customers.

Coincidentally, earlier in the day, Steve presented the keys to four new Saleen Mustang owners who have been patiently waiting for this day.

Continuing about the S7 LM, Steve explained to the audience that earlier in the year he quietly acquired the remaining S7 parts inventory, molds, intellectual property and other related assets, and he was very excited to formally announce it to the hundreds of Saleen fans attending the show. Steve stated that the company has the resources and backing, as well as interest from potential customers to build and deliver these seven supercars.

In the Speedlab area of the facility, we were able to see they have started production of the vehicles, with the first chassis being completed, the carbon fiber body work has been started, and the engine and other components have begun to take form. See pictures above.

This is an exciting announcement, and a long-awaited one for Steve, as he has been working hard to make this happen. I’ve been waiting for this also, as I have suspected that he had acquired the S7 properties, and I’m excited that it’s true!
