STEVE SALEEN BRINGS BACK S7 SUPERCAR WITH LE MANS EDITION

S7 LM Commemorates Rich S7 Racing Victories

CORONA, CA—December 18, 2017, Saleen Automotive, Inc. has re-asserted its dominance in the supercar market with the unveiling of the 1300-horsepower Saleen S7 Le Mans (LM) Edition at the recent LA Auto Show.

The S7R race version has won at every major racetrack in the world, including Daytona, Sebring, Nurburgring, and the prestigious 24 Hours of Le Mans. The S7 LM Edition commemorates that seven-year run of consecutive racing victories of its Saleen S7 Supercar. The S7 street version has also starred in several Hollywood blockbusters, including being driven by “God” in Bruce Almighty.

Steve Saleen previously announced the planned build of this extraordinary supercar. The car unveiled at the recent LA Auto Show is the fulfillment of the first of the special edition S7 LMs. “True to our form, we are bringing back America’s only true supercar,” said Steve Saleen, CEO of Saleen Automotive. “We are celebrating our winning heritage and advancing the performance DNA that Saleen was built around.”

A 7.0L twin-turbo engine, rated at 1300 horsepower, will power the new S7 LM supercar. Each one is being hand built at Saleen’s Corona, CA, headquarters. The S7 LM’s transmission is a longitudinal, 6-speed all synchromesh with limited-slip differential. It also has a metallic clutch with 8.0-inch twin-disc hydraulic actuation bow-through uprights.

The S7 LM has an all-new, exclusive Black/Silver paint scheme with clear-coated carbon fiber. It will ride on Saleen forged, five-spoke, Le Mans-style wheel design equipped with center locking wheel nuts with automatic safety locks. Fronts are sized at 19 X 9.5-inches with rears at 20 X 12.0-inches. These sleek, stylish wheels will be shod with high-performance tires: 275/30/ZR19 front and 335/30/ZR20 rears.

The chassis is comprised of 4130 Lightweight Steel Space frame with Honeycomb Composite panels. The S7 LM has advanced wind tunnel developed aerodynamics including integrated split-channel airflow throughout the car, full underside aerodynamics, advanced-design front tray and side skirts, full-body-width rear spoiler, and heat-rejecting tinted glass.

The S7 LM is well equipped with safety features including, but not limited to, integrated roll protection, aluminum honeycomb impact-absorbing panels, 3-point seat belts with automatic pre-tensioner, and aluminum honeycomb front crush structure with integrated rear crumple zones.

Interior convenience and comfort treatments feature a high-volume flow-through ventilation system, A/C, rear view video camera with interior LCD display, 240 MPH speedometer, race-inspired central-mounted digital tachometer with S7R-style shift lights, fully adjustable tilt and telescoping steering column, power windows and door locks, keyless remote for doors and rear trunk, variable intermittent windshield wipers, electric heated front windshield, remote engine hatch and fuel filler door releases, and the latest in sound systems. Standard interior trim includes black Alcantera with multi-tone leather and suede. The S7 LM is also equipped with performance sport seating, aluminum and color accents, custom-fitted driver seating position, and a dual leather and Alcantera suede steering wheel. Also included is the special LM-edition trim.

The Saleen S7 LM is priced at $1,000,000.00; with a mere seven in production, this is the ultimate collector supercar.

05-061 S7 Twin Turbo

Up for sale is a 2005 Saleen S7 Twin Turbo (one of 20 made) finished in custom Bianco Fuji (Ferrari) pearl white. I purchased the car three years ago after it was damaged from an incident with a tow truck. The damage was 100% superficial (body damage only) with no mechanical damage whatsoever. Due to the body damage it was necessary to repaint the whole car which gave me the opportunity to do so in pearl white (making it arguably one the of nicest S7s in existence). My initial intention was to repair the body and paint the car. Nothing more. But as all good plans go this did not happen.

It was evident to my body shop that the car was not assembled well from the get go (when originally manufactured). The factory hand assembled car had a number of fit and finish issues completely unrelated to the accident. For example some of the wiring behind the dash was actually glued together with silicone globs! Inside the side gill vents the carbon surfaces had not been sanded nor painted properly (my body shop said it was very difficult to sand and paint inside the side gills so they simply weren’t done). None of the channels under the rubber moldings were sanded properly because no one could see them. All the details – major and minor – were rectified resulting in a finished product that is literally better than when it was new! Unfortunately all this came at a cost that initially was intended to be around $60k and ended up costing over $100k!

Today the car is unquestionably the most perfect example of a Saleen S7 in existence. I have photos of the car when it was damaged to prove that the damage was mainly superficial. Due to the nature of this unique and rare car the original owner demanded that the car be salvaged so he could recoup the complete cost of the car. In no way should it have been salvaged. Fortunately it has been returned to better than its former glory and hopefully it will grace someone’s collection with the pride it deserves.

With only 20 examples in existence a clean titled Saleen S7 Twin Turbo is arguably a $600k car today. Forgetting the title issue for a moment my car is the best example of a S7 in existence. It was repaired right and clearly shows that way. Inspections are welcome. I can even put you in touch with the two certified Saleen techs to ever touch the car for service. There is no better example. Unfortunately the title is marred and therefore the value has been reduced accordingly. The car is located in Costa Mesa, California and interested (and serious) buyers are welcome to see it. Title is in hand. No trades please. No tire kickers. No lowballers. This is not a fire sale. Feel free to email me with any questions.

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.

SALEEN DEBUTS NEW S7 LM, FINAL PRODUCTION SERIES

PHOTOS: JIM DVORAK

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!
