Saleen S7 takes on Veyron

Wednesday 7th December 2005

autoexpress.co.uk

Saleen is now offering buyers of its 750 bhp S7 Twin Turbo supercar the option of a 'performance upgrade'. It costs 46,500 on top of the S7's 320,000 list price and boosts the 7-litre twin-turbo V8 to a claimed 1000 bhp. Coupled with a relatively light kerbweight of 1338 kg, the huge power should allow the S7 to challenge the Bugatti Veyron as the fastest production car in the world. And with 75 examples of the S7 already delivered in the US, the Saleen certainly has every right to claim the title.

Even with the 'cooking' 750bhp engine, the S7 Twin Turbo is said to be good for a sub-three second run to 60 mph, and 100 mph flashes up in a claimed six seconds flat. Currently Saleen claims a top speed of 240 mph for the S7 Twin Turbo but with the 1000 bhp upgrade there are whispers that the car has already topped over 260 mph in testing.

(end of article)

"Expect a future intercooled version with almost twice the boost to make over 1000 bhp."

- Road & Track

The new S7 Twin Turbo runs 5.5 psi of boost.

Even faster runs from the Veyron : 407.5 km/h (253.26 mph) in Ehra-Lessien test track, Germany under TUV supervision:

And 415 km/h (257.92 mph) in Salt Flats, Utah:
http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bugatti_Veyron#400_km.2Fh

That's even faster than the 1-off Sledgehammer

Re: Fastest Production Car

I found this article from german mag AutoBild on supercars.net. It's about the desert testing of the Veyron.

http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?vie...ID=2&tID=58942

Apparently they had some problems with the high elevation (the turbos starved for air and output dropped to "only" about 900 hp) and the sand (the tyres dug in over 3 cm at 350 km/h ). So it seems they probably never reached the 257 mph mark. Officially 253mph/407.5kph is the top speed. I think even more amazing is the 2.46 sec time for the 0-100kph (62mph) run though
