The 2007 Saleen S7 was an incredible automotive achievement, and in 2017 the company announced that it would be recommissioning models to a new-and-improved LM-spec. Today, a 2018-built Saleen S7 LM has landed on Bring a Trailer, showing just 158 miles on the clock.
This barely-run-in model is practically brand new and features a host of astronomical figures and upgrades. For example, its seven-liter twin-turbo V8 engine reportedly produces 1000 HP and 850 lb-ft of torque, which is sent to the rear wheels via a six-speed transaxle. A top speed is estimated to be over 240 MPH, which makes this — even to this day — one of the fastest production cars around.
Saleen‘s LM-spec gives the S7 a number of visual and aerodynamic improvements, too. It features a roof-mounted intake, adjustable rear spoiler, rear diffuser, power-operated butterfly doors, center-locking forged alloy wheels, black leather and Alcantara upholstery, air conditioning, and LED instrumentation. Elsewhere, the clear-coated carbon fiber body is finished in silver with black accents, while center-locking alloy wheels measuring 19” and 20” front and rear are finished in silver.
When new, Saleen charged $1,000,000 USD for the S7 LM. As of writing, the Bring a Trailer auction is sitting at $425,000 USD for the monster hypercar. Take a closer look at the Saleen S7 LM above, and find the listing on Bring a Trailer’s website where it’ll end in 13 days.
