One of the players in the sweepstakes to build Ford’s GT40 is Steve Saleen, maker of GTS-class S7R race cars whose company is currently hustling to get the street-legal S7 supercar to customers this month.

Sources say Saleen is among the companies under consideration for the job to produce the limitedproduction $100,000 car, but nothing is final. Also getting lots of consideration is Roush Industries, which played a part in building the retro-styled, rear-engined 500-hp GT40 show car revealed at the Detroit auto show (AW, Jan. 14).
