Run by the right team the Saleen S7-R was just as fast as the DBR-9 and MC12.

The S7R dominated European tracks for years and when the Veyron or any other Nurburgring challenger came out the Saleen S7 Competition 1000hp street car has and is being avoided. Would have beat anything from the McLaren F1 to the 911 GT2 RS today.

This car dominated the euro tracks in FIA and is one of the best performing production cars that the Europeans are too afraid to put on the Nurburgring, Top Gear, or 5th Gear. This car not only has racing history it has heritage, a pushrod 7.0L V8 like the GT40 that stomped Ferrari at Le Mans 1-2-3. The Ford GT was a Lighning Truck joke with failing control arms.

The non-turbo Saleen S7 doesn't have 550 horsepower, it has around 441. The last time tested the non-turbo S7, it produced only 441 to the crank.

33 years later, Steve Saleen made the S7 a successor to the Ford GT Mark IV racing legend. The newer Ford GT was a successor to the earlier GT40's, not the Mark IV.

Mr. Anonymous his is the 2000 S7 not the 2007 S7 TT (TwinTurbo) The acceleration numbers were taken by car and driver (2001) on a high traction drag strip in California not on normal low grip road tarmac.

I have deleted the 0-100km/h time because this is NOT 0-60mph!!!
