Saleen S7 Twin Turbo
You have probably heard of Maserati, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Bugatti and Pagani. You have probably heard of German cars such as Porsche(Ruf), Mercedes-Benz(AMG), BMW(M) and Koenigsegg. Also are British cars such as McLaren and Jaguar. However, there is one purebred supercar not mentioned. It is not from the European countries, rather, it is from Irvine, California, the Saleen S7. Saleen is a special tuning company, tuning regular Ford Mustangs into 500+ horsepower S281. In this workshop, the S7 is born. The Saleen S7 Twin Turbo is based on the standard 550hp Saleen S7. In 2005, the S7 was replaced by the S7 Twin Turbo. Power was boosted to 750hp and can reach 402km/h. It features a 7Litre engine. The S7 Twin Turbo also comes in an optional Competition Package, raising the power to 1000hp, along with race suspensions, spoiler and a redesigned diffuser. The Aerodynamic Package comes with a carbon fibre front and rear spoiler. Ever since the S7 was first introduced, it was off onto the racetrack and has claimed many victories. It is a great glory for a us to be able to drive one of these purebreds.
