Saleen Shows Off S5S Raptor Concept

Written by tonks on April 1, 2008

Saleen S5S RaptorSaleen showed off this amazing supercar at the New York Auto Show in March and since then we have been drooling hoping to get more information on it. The Saleen S5S Raptor is a two seater model that will follow up the S7 supercar.

The ‘S5S’ name stands for Saleen 5-liter supercharged motor, which produces monstrous power of 650 horsepower and 630 lb-ft of torque. And this is a green car with the engine which runs on ethanol. Saleen chose the ethanol burning engine to help reduce emissions and oil dependence. It reaches 0 to 60 MPH in 3.2 seconds. The Saleen S5S Raptor achieved a top speed of over 200 MPH.

The over all look of the car is simply astonishing. It is definitely going to turn heads wherever it goes. The sexy front flanks and wedge design is perfect for the super car. You can see the speed even in the design of its head lights.

The Saleen S5S Raptor is subtler version of its predecessor S7 and is made with light weight aluminum composites. Sun light drizzles through the solar tinted glass sun roof. Saleen says that the S5S Raptor could be on the road in two years at an estimated $185,000, depending on the public’s reaction to this car.
