0-60mph in 2.8 seconds makes a street-legal supercar that much more inviting when encountering true American muscle in a V8, 7-liter engine.
In addition, the exhaust incorporates dual catalysts per cylinder bank, EGR and those aforementioned twin wastegates.

From the plenum the air is routed to the twin ball bearing turbos, is pressurized to 5.5 psi max and then passes through an oval-bore throttle body into an aluminum intake manifold with eight individual runners. Saleen-engineered Brembo-supplied lightweight aluminum six-piston mono-block calipers are fitted front and rear.
Since the S7 was first introduced in 2002, the newly revisited Twin Turbo design has pushed the envelope further from 500hp and 500 lb-ft of torque, to a life-altering 750hp and 750 lb-ft of torque. 0-60mph in 2.8 seconds makes a street-legal supercar that much more inviting when encountering true American muscle in a V8, 7-liter engine.
Nevertheless, Saleen hopes to revitalize its mid-engine supercar with a turbocharged version of its 7.0-liter Ford V-8. Thanks to twin, water-cooled Garrett turbos, this high-tech, all-aluminum engine now delivers 750 hp @ 6300 rpm and 700 lb-ft of torque at 4800 rpm.
