Saleen S1 sports car: Features and specifications

The lithe and lightweight Saleen S1 seems at first like a radical departure from the company's atomic offerings. It's predecessor, the Le Mans-conquering S7, sprouted wings and vents from every surface and breathed fore from its 7.0 liter twin-turbo V8.

The new S1 has just four turbocharged cylinders displacing a scant 2.5 liters, though it does make a stonking 450 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque. A six-speed manual is standard, with the option of a paddle-shifted automatic.

An aluminium tub chassis and carbon fiber body keep the weight down to a svelte 2,685 pounds. Combined with the big power, the zero-60 run takes just 3.5 seconds, the quarter mile zips by 11.3, and top speed is 180.

Rather than the obvious aero add-ons of its older sibling, the S1 uses body contours to master downforce and eliminate high-speed lift. The result saves weight, looks elegant and simplifies manufacturing.

Steve Saleen said about the sports car, "We're really charting a new breed of car here." The S1 is set to take the sports car onto world stage. The first delivery is expected in coming month.
