2004 Saleen S7 Coupe

  • Chassis Number: 1S9SB181X4S000045
Steve Saleen and his company built a reputation for tuning and modifying Mustangs, but never before had he built and designed a car under its own name. Saleen began with a completely unique chassis with lightweight carbon-fiber bodywork, and fitted a mid-mounted 427 cubic-inch V8 engine at its heart. The exotic supercar was capable of sprinting from zero-to-sixty mph in just 3.3 seconds and had a top speed of over 200 mph. Road-going examples were built to meet homologation requirements, and were dubbed S7. The competition versions were called the S7R, and they proved to be a competent competitor, achieving class wins at both the 12 Hours of Sebring and the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Just eight examples of the S7 were built for the 2004 model year and a total of 30 naturally aspirated S7s ever built. This particular example was sold new to its first owner that year through Ron Tonkin Gran Turismo of Portland, Oregon. It left the factory finished in Speedlab Silver over Beige, and was given seven-spoke polished wheels.

This Saleen remained with its first owner for two years and was sold to its second owner in 2006, who retained the car through 2014.

This Saleen S7 has just 1,496 original miles. It has a 6-speed transmission, a 7-liter engine offering 575 horsepower, Brembo brakes, and polished wheels.
