Saleen announce limited edition S7 LM

Saleen will release a new special edition supercar to mark the 20th anniversary of their 7 year winning streak of race championships.

The historic S7 race car won 12 trophies over 7 years, winning at prestigious race tracks such as the Nürburgring, Le Mans and Daytona.

The new S7 LM supercar will honour the success of the original while having additional styling and  upgrades. The LM will run on a new twin-turbocharged 7.0-litre V8 engine, which will produce a whopping 1,000bhp.

The LM has 25% more power than the 2006 S7 variant, which had a 0-60mph time of 2.8 seconds and a flat out speed of 248mph. Performance statistics for the new model should be substantially faster than its predecessor.

The 20th anniversary edition S7 LM will be finished with bespoke livery, interior and wheels. Production will be limited to a mere seven models and each will be hand built at the company’s Californian headquarters. Pricing will be announced closer to the car’s release.
